    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deem (Foster City, CA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    The phone technical screens were straightforward (as they asked some basic, intermediate and advanced Java questions, as well as general questions on HTTP and servlets).

    I had two on-site interviews, each lasting about 2-3 hours. The format for each interviewer was to ask a IQ puzzler and then a coding question. The IQ questions were: tossing two eggs off a building (a popular question lifted from Google's repertoire), computing the angle between the minute and hour hands of a clock and devising a way for representing VCR+ codes in a small amount of bits (yes I know, quite retro but a decent question). The Java questions themselves are not particularly difficult, although they did ask an open-ended OO-design question asking how to design an elevator system.

    Round One actually went reasonably well for me, so they called me in for round two. Sadly, I was doomed from the start: for a reason that is inexplicable to me - the interviewer's mannerism made it clear that he did not approve of my candidacy. Despite the fact that I was able to implement a hash table from scratch using only Java primitives and explain how to make it thread-safe (we are talking basic stuff here). But, when I asked him about the corporate culture of Rearden Commerce his bias against me became clear when he responded: "We are *results* driven". His tone of voice suggested that somehow he concluded that I am somehow not results driven. My past experience, rave reviews and monotonically increasing salary history begs to differ.

    Needless to say: I did not receive an offer from this company. And until clairvoyance has been proven as a valid tool for interviewers, be prepared for such unprofessionalism if you interview with Rearden Commerce. Speaking of unprofessionalism, a hiring manager also admitted to me that the MO of engineers at this company is to tell their coworkers "your code sucks!". Perhaps I should consider myself spared.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Deem (Foster City, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    They really like to drag you along with a carrot on a rope. I was part of a group interview session, and I have since spoken with others that interviewed with me that day and their experiences were similar. One candidate never received a response positive/negative afterwards. And me and two others were told that we were their top choice and they indicated they were just waiting for the CTO to make an offer. Eight weeks later I was finally informed that they are "restructuring" and are no longer accepting candidates.

    My recommendation, don't waste your time with this company, as they will surely waste yours.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Deem (Scottsdale, AZ).

    Interview

    2 interviews, very personable Director interviewing or, should I say, selling the dream. And that's what he did. I was not familiar with this company; had never heard of them so he spent more time selling me than I him. Unfortunately I bought in and wasted 6 months of my professional life on an opportunity that was not worthwhile. It was common for new training classes to start off with 20 and by the end of the first week on the floor have only a few left.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Deem in April 2009.

    Interview

    Corporate Recruiter called and asked standard questions - rahash of my past experience. Standard marketing related questions. Told me that he would setup a interview in a day or two OR let me know if there is no interest. Did not get any call or response. Given that I applied online (no recruiter) I assumed that there was a lot of experience they liked in my resume. They reposted the same job twice over the past two weeks - I wish I had a chance to meet the hiring manager instead of a corporate recruiter.
