    Software Engineer Co-Op Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Charles River Development (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They held the interview with several other interviewees collectively in a large room. Each interviewee was either waiting, or at one of the "stations" within the room to be interviewed. Each station asked me about different types of questions, none too difficult. After each interviewee traversed each station, they proceeded to deliver a 30/45 minute non-coding quiz, which was no doubt the most difficult part of the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • One thing they asked me was about how to join two SQL tables together in order to achieve a specified output from my query. Another question was about the purpose and definition of the "volatile" reserved word in Java.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Charles River Development.

    Interview

    Talked to them at a University Career Fair and got an email setting up an interview soon after. They did not call when the interview was scheduled so we had to reschedule for the next week. Asked mostly about the resume. What classes I've taken, and what I have learned in them. The person I spoke to didn't sound too friendly, but loosened up towards the end of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Two simple questions about Java were asked: What is polymorphism? And what is unique about Sets in Java?   Answer Question

CR might also want to evaluate your writing skills.

    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Charles River Development (Burlington, MA).

    Interview

    Recruiter matched me with different teams. I have both java and .net background. I initially phone screen with a java team who gave me good feedback but then they were closed to picking somebody else so the recruiter set me up with another team to do another phone screen. Then I got invited to an on-site where i was there from 9:30am to 2pm. Met with 5 people and then had to do an analytical test. The people were friendly and I really had a good experience meeting them.

    The recruiter said the team lead had narrowed down 10+ candidates down to me and another candidate. She kept delaying on giving me a decision. My guess is they already gave this other guy an offer and waiting for his decision. In the meantime, i have moved on and took another job.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of design pattern questions. Some .NET questions that required memorization.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Phone interview was followed by in person interview, analytical test and reference check. The interview process was quick except that the recruiter whom I interacted never even cared to explain about the benefits, company etc and was just simply rude.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the person who interviewed was very critical of the company policies especially the 9 hr a day and no work from home policy. This was very uncomfortable as well as surprising especially during the interview process.   1 Answer
