    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Compuware (Detroit, MI) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online first but did not get a call for two months so applied again through reference and immediately received a call from HR explaining about the interview process and about the company.Soon within two days the HR scheduled one written programming interview in which they had send me some java program to write code.It was simple program to implement 4 functions.Then after a day they scheduled for telephonic technical interview in which i was asked very basic questions like inheritance vs abstract, static method vs static block,polymorphism, final finally finalize,Singleton class, basic unix commands like ls, cd etc...
    After that i received a call for onsite interview where there were 3 rounds
    First round
    1)Writing and executing a program for sorting Person objects based on data members like age and name.
    I did it well and i finished in 40 mins of given one hour

    Second round
    Presentation on any application which i built.
    I showed the demo of my application.Design and flow everything.They will ask to go through the code as well.
    He said that he can understand my confidence from the way i am presenting.
    In this round there were also two analytic questions/puzzles to be solved.
    They were very simple.

    Third round
    Behavioral round
    I was asked to tell me what i would do in situations like under pressure.
    If i want to remove two members from a team whom and how do i choose.
    There were many other questions.

    Every round was for one hour.
    I felt i have done pretty well in all the rounds and i did not expect a reject from Compuware even in my dreams.

    2 days after my onsite interview HR called me and said unfortunately we are proceeding with other candidates.It was shocking

    The package is bit less.It was 60K but since i heard much about t he company i wanted to apply.The onsite experience was good and they treated very well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Compuware (Detroit, MI) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Had two initial rounds over phone.
    1st Interview was by an HR who had a set of questions.
    2nd Interview was taken by one of the people in charge of the APM program, this too had the same questions as the 1st round, but digged a level deeper.
    Got called onsite for final round of interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Common questions during phone screen.
      1) What is load balancing?
      2) Difference between router and a switch
      3) What is indexing in a database?

      Don't remember other questions...
      Also they ask you how comfortable you are in giving presentations et al.
      Do through study about APM tools and prepare a couple of questions to ask them.

      On the super day, they have 6 rounds of interviews followed by a presentation.
      Interviews are not that stressful, they focus on various areas: Technical (not difficult, should be easy for any decent comps related grad), Project based, Behavioral, something like a quiz, HR and one where someone comes in to tell you how the company is (so all you have to do is listen).

      Presentation is very important...they kind of stress test you....so prepare well.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Compuware (Detroit, MI) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Applied through an online job portal, and was contacted by a recruiter for initial screening. Once speaking to the recruiter, I was then called to inform a phone interview with one of the managers two days later than my initial screening.
    Interview with manager was good. Involved basic networking, oops, and behavioral questions. Few minutes later, was called and informed that will be having another phone interview, this time with the director of the program. Interview with director was very much related to my career goals and my potential to be a part of their team. Was invited to their headquarters an interview day.
    Interview had tour of their building, lunch, one on one interviews, essay, and finally presentation.
    After presentation, was verbally given an offer, and formal letter of offer the next day.

    They really try to see if you would be able to handle pressure situations, and basic skills.

    Technical interview was very basic and easy. Just know everything on your resume, and be truthful about who you are.

    Presentation was a very important aspect of the interview. They really like to see how efficiently can you grasp their product and how can you respond to different situations during the presentation. Learn their product on your finger tips.

Pros: “I felt totally welcome there, everyone young and old was eager to help me out.

Compuware has been around since the 1970s, and a good chunk of its staff comes from the 1970s and 1980s. They're dedicated and welcoming people. As interns we were given actual code to write that was used in production after training. The environment was very collaborative and egalitarian, even as an intern I never felt like I was below anyone. I was also impressed by the openness between the CEO and the employees. The location is fantastic too.” – Full Review
