    SQL Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Catapult Systems (Austin, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had 3 out of the possible 5 interviews with Catapult and have not heard back from them in around 2 or so weeks. I also emailed a follow up and still no response and the job posting is off their site. The first 2 interviews were more behavioral and are followed up by 2 technical interviews and then a supposed final interview. It is an long interview process which I didn't mind however it was difficult to get a hold of someone for next steps, as I still haven't heard from them that I did not get the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Catapult Systems (Austin, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    They told me there would be 5 interview rounds in total. Two HR rounds, two technical rounds and an on-site one.

    The first one was pretty short compared to the other ones, around 30 minutes long from what I remember. It was about getting to know me and the chance to ask any (non-technical) questions about Catapult. The second one was really long (~1 hour) and it was soooo many different HR questions. The third one was great (~45 mins)! It was mainly a technical skills interview testing my knowledge of computer science concepts and how I applied them in projects that I listed in my resume. I also was asked to explain stuff about my projects with technical terms to see if I really understood what I was talking about. The 4th interview was also around 45 minutes and it was more of programming questions. I wasn't completely prepared for this one since I thought it was going to be similar to the previous one and it wasn't mentioned to me what it was going to be testing exactly. There was a simple technical question that caught me off guard, that to be fair, I did not answer to the best of my capabilities. I feel that this was what cost me my chance for a final interview.

    I have not heard back since the 4th interview and it has been more than a month now. Since it has been more than a month (they usually got back to me fairly quickly) and they have posted the job position again, I am assuming I didn't pass the 4th interview. All of my interviewers were so polite and friendly and I enjoyed every interview with them very much. However, I am very disappointed that after so much effort in an almost MONTH long interview process, they didn't even have the courtesy to at least send me a rejection email. I was extremely excited for the chance to work at Catapult but for a company that supposedly prides itself on caring for its employees, they sure don't seem to care about their job candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • -Typical behavioral questions such as "what would you do in ____ situation?"
      -Why do you want to work here?
      -In depth stuff about resume
      -Programming questions
      -Know technical concepts really well, especially about stuff you have been involved in and your favorite programming language
      There was sooooo much more, too much to remember everything. It is a very lengthy process.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Catapult Systems (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    One of the best interviews I have been fortunate to participate in. All seemed to generally care that they were getting the best person for the job by asking very probing situational questions in order to determine how I would react to real world challenges.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Catapult Systems in March 2016.

    Interview

    I had 6 interviews. The first 5 were spread out week to week, the last one was a bit later than what I'm used but they vet people out very well I feel. I did enjoy interviewing with them they sound like a great company.

    Reasons for Declining

    My salary requirements could not be met, that's not the reflection of the company, could be the project(s) didn't justify it.

    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Catapult Systems (Austin, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    This is the best interview process I have ever encountered. I felt that the process was very thorough and good at finding people who fit well into roles and into teams.

    I had 3 interviews -- 1) phone interview with recruiter, 2) in-person interview with managers (lunch), and 3) in-person interview with upper management and team lunch. I then received an offer later that week.

    I really enjoyed the interview (as much as you can enjoy an interview) because, while it wasn't an easy interview, there weren't any intimidation tactics or patronizing that you sometimes see in interviews. There was an equal focus on knowledge of technology and personality.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Catapult Systems (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    She emailed me to setup a time to talk. We made the appointment time and I prepared for the interview. The call lasted no more than 15 minutes. It felt like they had already chosen their new hire and that my interview was a waste of time. She asked quick questions and kept cutting me off mid-sentence. I tried to go into detail about my current role and how I could be an asset to Catapult Systems, but she wasn't interested. It would have been a better experience to just have them email me that they had already found someone and there was no need to interview me.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Catapult Systems in April 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter by phone to discuss my resume that was submitted by an employee.
    We discussed the usual things like present employment, was I interested in other opportunities. We also got into my qualifications and where I wanted my career to go.
    At the end of the call we agreed that I would speak with a technical lead to further discuss my technical qualifications.
    Several days later I spoke with one of the consulting team leads.
    I never heard back from them after that.

    Red flag #1: The technical interview turned into a competition of who knew more about technology, which I of course had to lose or otherwise jeopardize retaliation by the technical interviewer.
    Red flag #2: No follow up or contact after technical interview, not even a good luck. I assume that my feedback was negative from the technical lead. Most companies will provide you with feedback on areas where they feel you need to improve but that wasn't the case here so maybe it wasn't negative feedback from the technical interview.
    Red flag #3: The company was purchased in late 2013 by a Chinese company.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the technical questions were related to Microsoft technologies. Since they only deliver Microsoft solutions that might make sense to some but understanding the competitors technologies, good and bad, is also as important when having conversations with customers regarding solutions.

      Business questions were typical questions such as how would you handle a customer in different types of scenarios.

      There wasn't anything difficult about any of the questions.   Answer Question
