    Software Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Akron, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Diebold Nixdorf (Akron, OH) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Overall the interview process was a complete waste of time. Even though I was referred by a current employee and the company was supposedly desperate to hire engineers it was 37 days from the time I submitted my application online to the time I was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview. It should be noted that by this time I had already accepted a position elsewhere and was in the process of resigning from my current employer. I was still interested in the opportunity though.

    When it was all said and done I had two phone interviews with two separate development departments. The manager in the first interview immediately dismissed me when I said that did about 50/50 C# and Vb.net at then current employer although I am very proficient in C#. The interview continued but I felt like I had many marks against me because of this. I received a call back from the recruiter saying that the manager who interviewed my had both positives and negative things to say about me. He wouldn't really go into specifics, but did recommend I interview with the other department.

    The other interview was for a Sr Dev position on one of the R&D teams. I knew going into this I wasn't as qualified for this position as I was the first one (at the time I had about 5 years of qa and software development experience just to give you an idea). This was a very technical interview asking me specific questions about processes I had worked on years ago. There was a large group of people conducting this interview and it was hard to hear all the different voices at different levels over the phone.

    It would have been more efficient to bring me in one day and let me interview with whatever departments were hiring. I was a little off put that so many technical questions were being asked via the phone especially with the noise and thick accents some of the developers/managers on the line had.

    After the second interview I never received a call back from the recruiter, a few weeks later I got a 'thanks but no thanks' email from their automated system. By that time, I had already started at my new job anyways.

    Honestly looking back I feel like I dodged a bullet with this company. Just a quick Google search shows how unorganized and corrupt things are at this place. I have also heard from the employee who referred me that there are constant layoffs and morale is absolutely awful. I get the feeling that they are interviewing software people in America just for the sake of interviewing as they want to outsource a lot of the IT work to India.

    Interview Questions

    • In the first interview we mainly talked about my past roles in development, and they asked questions about how I mentored entry level developers at my previous employer. I was also asked how much I worked on C# as opposed to VB.net   1 Answer
    • In the second interview I was asked a lot of specifics about prior projects I had worked on. One was how I generated models for the WCF service I worked on.   1 Answer
