    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coimbra, Coimbra (Portugal)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Critical Software (Coimbra, Coimbra (Portugal)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied Online and got scheduled to a first large group interview for a full day, this position was actually to a sibling company named ITGROW

    First half of day was mainly psychological tests, similar to IQ tests to test your overall aptitude.
    Second Half was composed of a group activity followed by a simple java development test on an network isolated computer.
    After that you have another day to interview alone, with a technical manager of one of the teams you will be working with.

    Even though I got a proposal to go abroad to a different office than the one applied, this was put on hold /cancelled a few days after accepting, this is the just plain wrong step in the whole process.

    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Critical Software (Porto, Oporto (Portugal)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, and after a few weeks was called to an interview.
    On the personal note, I got one of those classic strong gut feeling that they didn't like me, even before we shaked hands and talked.

    So, the interview was quite straighforward. There were two people present, an HR person (via skype) and a very young team leader (I think).
    Standard questions: why this and why that.
    Several technical questions related with java. Well, all I can say is that for a junior position, there were not only numerous questions but they were also quite advanced. How can a junior have extensive experience with scrum? Did they forgot I was applying for a junior and not a senior position?

    Anyways, after a week or so, their final decision came.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Critical Software.

    Interview

    I was invited for an interview on-site. In the beginning, they asked soft-skills questions, then they continued with technical ones, and they finished with some coding examples. During the interview, the two people were very friendly and we actually had an "informal" conversation about my background, my interests, and my reactions to specific situations. They made me feel really comfortable and wasn't the type of interview where there is one question after the other. It was like a conversation based on me.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Critical Software (Porto, Oporto (Portugal)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was done initially by phone, followed by a remote test on a specific platform to confirm knowledge and after approval, personal interview with two dev and one HR.
    The first interview; by phone with HR, went well and the purpose was to define / filter if my profile fit in the clients needs to the job title.
    The remote test was a little hard, multiple-choice exam, with a countdown, to check what we know and in what time.
    The personal interview went well, because the two dev knew what they wanted, clearly had knowledge regarding the subject and made some theoretical questions and a practical exercise to solve in Google Docs in real time.
    Despite not having selected me for the role, the interviewers proposed me a very good solution adapted to my profile.

    The hiring process takes way too long. The psychometric tests were scheduled for one month after sending the CV and I was only contacted for the follow-up technical interview a month after that. By then I had already taken another offer.
