    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at ClickSoftware (Burlington, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was great! Jen was incredibly helpful in guiding me through the process and sending correspondence frequently and in an organized manner. She was also very responsive via email and phone and answered my questions quickly. Additionally, interviewing with the team members I am currently working with was a great experience. It gave me a better sense of who I would be working with and there expectations.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ClickSoftware (Burlington, MA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Was told I would be interviewing with HR as round 1, then would proceed from there. Day of interview, received phone call that HR person I was scheduled with was sick and could I move it out a day with a different person. I agreed.

    Day of interview, received call on my cell, by which I had told recruiter to call land line, so called back on home office number. She proceeded to tell me about the company, the products and customers. I interjected and stated "for an HR person, you are very knowledgeable in these areas!" by which she replied, "I'm the hiring manager..."

    Had a GREAT dialog, conversation went both ways, she was very interested in my past success and felt I would be of value add within the organization. We actually went over the allotted hour but due to good conversation.

    At the end of the interview, I asked if she felt I would be a good fit and she replied yes, your background on certain area's would be most helpful as we are lacking in them. She asked if I had any additional questions by which I stated no, however could I email her later if I had any additional questions and she said yes and even offered up my her cell phone number and told me who I would be speaking with next...

    Called the recruiter later that day and he simply said, "they felt you were not a fit..." End of conversation Totally off from what I thought.

    Technical Consultant, Professional Services Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at ClickSoftware (Burlington, MA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Applied for a position, heard back from the external recruiter a day or so later. I was an unintuitive fit, but I have an interesting background, so she decided to call me. After speaking with her, the company invited me in for an in-person interview which consisted of conversations with several people (behavioral and Q&A stuff), and three programming-related skills tests.

    All of these questions could be done in any language, but they preferred C-style languages. I did them all in C#, which is their language of choice (and mine).

    1) Write a class that returns a list of n, non-repeating, random lottery numbers with values between x and y

    In this particular instance, I had five minutes, and was literally constrained by how fast I could write by hand. The Director of the group criticized that I used an infinite loop to do this (while (true) with a break condition) which was like the end of the world or something. Given that I had *no* time to think about it, and just had to start writing immediately, I didn't think this was a fair criticism, because I certainly wouldn't do that in a production environment (or even in my own code); I just needed to get something written. He also told me in no uncertain terms that recursion should never be used in production code. (wtf)

    Anyway, we discussed the drawbacks of my approach (brute force), and we/I spent 10 minutes discussing it and refactoring it on a whiteboard to have better performance characteristics. Overall, I wasn't terribly enthused about this question and the circumstances under which it was presented.

    2) Write a function that reverses an integer number without converting to strings or characters.

    I didn't get it completely right, but I was on the right track. I don't know if this counted against me or not. I later went home and wrote working code that happens to be quite pretty.

    3) I can't remember the specifics of the third, but it had to do with creating a human-readable XML stylesheet that would be used in conjunction with XPath in some way.

    I didn't get an offer, and the feedback was that while everyone really liked me, but they felt my technical skills weren't quite up to where they needed them to be. Maybe that's fair, maybe not. The feedback was too generic to be useful, but that was the recruiter's fault, not the CKSW people. I also knew going in that I would be at a disadvantage because I am not a CS person or software engineer; I'm simply a hobbyist and relative newb. That being said, all those things accounted for, I acquitted myself well, and the experience was positive overall. Everyone I met was very nice and down to earth.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ClickSoftware (Boston, MA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    The 3rd party recruiter found me. The recruiter was a bit scattered, but effective and open. After that filter, I was given a go for the interview. The process was a bit slow because it's an international company (based in Israel) and they were short-handed at the top (people traveling from country to country).

    The staff were open and down to earth. The company has won several awards and has them on display in the front room. Arrive early, take note of the awards and read the company marketing material on hand near the receptionist. You won't find either on the website.

    I was given a post-interview "homework assignment" with the possibility of some consulting work dangled in front of me. They received a unique product that would have taken the staff a considerable amount of research to create, I received a terrific review for the recruiter, but no job offer.

    Senior Technical Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ClickSoftware (Burnham, England (UK)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I went through an agency. The process started by agency/click arranging an one hour-long skype interview with two C-level execs. This was mainly stuff like "why do you want to work for us, how long you want to stay, where do you see yourself in 5 years". After a successful skype-interview, I was invited to do an hour-long presentation+Q&A with the hiring manager & one of the directors from 1st round interview, followed by a 30 mins chat with HR - all questions re travel, working times, culture etc answered. The live interview was set 4 days after the phone call (with a weekend in between). HR sent me instructions on what to present (15 mins presentation expected) four days up-front and I was able to prepare just using the "about us" on their homepage.
    Everyone was very nice and calm, I never had the feeling of being "tested" or scrutinized - it was a (surprisingly) pleasant experience. HR did email and call me before the live-interview to make sure I understand what's expected. Feedback was given within 24 hours on both interviews (so no sleepless weeks - just one nervous evening).
