    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BuildASign.com.

    Interview

    Intro phone call that lasted about an hour. Was 50% questions, 50% company overview and interviewer's career history.

    Next is an online coding test done through HackerEarth, probably the worst algorithm site available for testing in C#. Instructions say "You will be given an array, but you should expect to receive the array through a Console.Read, which turns it into a string (ie. "["5","0","1","14","2","8"]") which is a whole lot different than receiving a simple string[], like the instructions tell you. The instructions also say, "Build a function that..." when you're really expected to create an entire console app, including the "using System; etc." that you may need in order to execute your function.

    The algorithm is an easy one to solve, but working with HackerEarth's horrible system turns a 5-minute problem into a nightmare to complete in 45 minutes.

    After the online coding test, you'll have an on-site interview which pretty much lines up with the description from some of the other comments.

    My advice to you, get used to HackerEarth's deplorable system. Do more than just the practice test before taking the actual test. Despite what the initial instructions tell you, you ONLY get to use C# for the actual assessment, so don't bother practicing with any other language. Make sure to complete a practice test that has you return each of the main datatypes (strings, ints, lists, arrays, objects), just to make sure you feel confident using HackerEarth's broken system.

    Mid to Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BuildASign.com (Austin, TX) in November 2018.

    Interview

    You go through 2 phone screen, and then if things are good, you meet the team where it's a painfully long almost 1/2 day interview among 8 to 9 people... for a software job (not a board member). Some of the people even joked about not getting laid off after them getting purchased.

    While most of the group was nice, I felt like it was tough to feel like it was a casual environment. Most of the dialog seemed incredibly Politically Correct where there struggles with wanting to be funny and not listening with the English language. It was rough.

    Upon the technical, I wound up getting into it with the architect:

    1. He'd game me over what unit testing was (after mixing word-use to say "Unit Test this" implying he wanted it all tested, which led to a discussion over Unit Test vs Integration Test
    2. He continually argued over how I didn't test something write. I altered the methods without changing signatures, and I even pushed logic into a class on its own to test that. All of which was said to be wrong. When I did run out of options and grew frustrated because I felt like I was being gamed again, I asked what he envisioned. Well low and behold, he wanted a class that was testable and placed inside the static method -- what I did!

    These pieces took way too long, and him not listening and wanting to game me only made it worse for all. I could see the struggle with his co-interviewer, who tried to steer the conversation, and I really thank him for that!

    In summary, while the reviews here show a great culture, the lack of change in a software interview process of 8+ years, joking about being laid off, battling PC English, and an architect who cherished messing with people and not listening, makes this a horrible place to work, so be cautious!

    Scrum Master Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BuildASign.com.

    Interview

    It was the worst interview process I've ever experienced.
    - lack of professionalism
    - lack of follow-up

    1. The process to get to the phone interview with the hiring manager was lengthy and was lack of follow-up.
    2. The interview was conducted while the hiring manager was driving on the road. The session was disconnected many times.
    3. The hiring manager expressed interest for the next round interview. However, there was no follow-up from both the recruiter and the hiring manager.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BuildASign.com (Austin, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Behavioral interview with the technical manager, followed by a technical interview on the phone with an architect, followed by a unique on-site white board interview. The phone interview consisted of questions covering concepts all over computer science.

    Interview Questions

    • You are given a database that has a single table with six columns: FirstName, LastName, ContactType, PhoneNumber, Email, CreatedOn.

      Data may look like:

      John | Doe | Work | 8881234567 | johndoe@email.com | Dec 22, 2012
      John | Doe | Cell | 8882345678 | johndoe@email.com | Dec 23, 2012

      The only clue given was the question, "How can we be sure that those two John Doe rows are the same person?" With that, redesign the database for better reliability and performance.   Answer Question
    • Given a string of random (alphabetical) characters, return a new string as follows:

      null -> null
      "" -> ""
      "a" -> "a"
      "aa" -> "a2"
      "abb" -> "ab2"
      "abbbxyzeeeec" -> "ab3xyze4c"   Answer Question
