Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
No Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Raleigh, NC) in August 2016.

Interview

I had applied online and received an invitation for an Initial phone screen to determine fit and provide hiring manager with candidate stream. The interview was 30 minutes, short and easy, however even though I felt like it went well and I was a good fit, I didn't get a follow up. I have heard that candidates should not answer salary expectations directly and rather defer until later in the hiring process, however, I was asking less than my previous employment due to easier commute and my perceived company / position value.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Suisse (Research Triangle Park, NC) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I got a call from HR asking for setting up a time for first round of interview.

    I had 3 rounds of interview. Luckily all telephonic interviews as I far away from the office location.

    1st Interview was done by technical manager who did 30 minutes of interview with both technical and behavioral questions. Both technical and behavioral questions were good and manager accessed me through them. He told me they will do another round of interview.

    The 2nd interview was all technical in Java and .NET. The manager was architect and grilled me well with all the practical scenarios and coding question and few behavioral. It went for 1 hr.

    The 3rd one mix of both technical and behavioral and it went for 1 hr.

    You need to know your technical stuff and answer behavioral questions well. The interviewers are very qualified people and analyze candidates quickly and well. You need to be prompt in answering and to the point answer as they don't have whole day for you.

    Don't reschedule or cancel your interview or try to give answers to the best of your knowledge.
