    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlington, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Charles River Development (Burlington, MA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I first spoke with a recruiter on the phone for a phone screening, and they took about 4 weeks to get back to me. After this, a phone call with an engineer was arranged. The individual was highly unpleasant and acted like I was wasting his time, despite answering the questions about 90% correctly. After this call, the recruiter did not reach out to me, and ignored my multiple attempts to contact them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Charles River Development (Burlington, MA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The process was typical - phone screen, round robin of interviews, presentation. There was an IQ test and a writing sample required, which I found weird, but hey, to each their own. The interview and the company were not awful; I was enthusiastic about having the opportunity to interview. The reason I am giving a negative review is because with all the effort I put into the interview, they never had the courtesy to loop me in to where I was in the process. The recruiter kept up for a little bit, but then just vanished. I interviewed for this role in July, 2016 and to this day, the position is still open. It was a shame, really, because I felt like I brought a lot to the table. Also, since I was an employee referral, I feel that a little professional courtesy should have been extended in the follow-up process, especially given the energy and effort that went into the whole process. It has left a sour taste in my mouth all together.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the most challenging part about being (this role) and how do you handle that?
      From one interviewer: "I won't sugar coat this, I can be really difficult. How do you handle difficult people?" (This one threw me off a little, especially hearing from someone self-promoting their inability to adjust and change within a team environment while making it clear that they were the issue.)   2 Answers
