    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at CARFAX (Columbia, MO) in February 2020.

    Interview

    1) Phone screen
    2) Virtual video interview for 90 minutes
    3) On-Site interview

    Phone screen was just the usual. Experience about my previous work, what I am interested in and so on. No technical questions asked.

    Virtual technical interview - In-Depth questions about previous projects and why was I planning to switch. The technical challenge was to complete a couple of APIs (GET) whose skeleton they had provided. I remember it being the Movies API to list in a lexicographically order and also eliminate the duplicates.

    On-Site was in Columbia, MO. 4 Rounds. One-on-One with the manager, panel interview with 4 team members, technical challenge with the idea of "pair programming" to a) fix an error and b) write unit test cases for an existing functionality and interview with the Director.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CARFAX in February 2020.

    Interview

    Flawed process with not clear understanding of what they want. Don't waste your time. Recruiter came back with feedback that case study was nice but current openings doesn't align with my experience.

    This should have been identified in the very step itself. Product Management is not about only building products, it's also about how to apply those principle in your day to day. You guys have missed this very important point.
