    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EPAM.

    Interview

    Interview process was alright. First a general 30 minute phone screen to discuss your background and your skills; after that if all is good they will schedule a 1 or 1.5 hour technical screen which can be done over webcam. So I got through the first two rounds, with positive feedback. But then after the HR recruiter tells me that the clients had suddenly changed the position and they were no longer recruiting for this particular role. With my hopes up for the role it didn't feel good. So that was that. A month later, I see a similar role being posted on job sites from EPAM in the same geographic location. Honestly, they shouldn't waste candidates time if they are eventually going to change the roles. Either they weren't being upfront about my interview results or they just need to get their act straight.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EPAM (Atlanta, GA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process took almost a month and One round of Skype interview with people from Belarus, another round from Hungary. Final client interview got cancelled due to change in directions from the client. Honestly They should not waste peoples time ,if they don't have intention to hire. Recruiter said he got very good feedback but in the end this is some kind of Fluke that has happened.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at EPAM.

    Interview

    Usually interview on EPAM consists of few stages. EPAM is consulting firm and we mostly hire people to work on other large companies like Google, Microsoft, etc. First interview is usually with recruiting and not very useful. Second interview is technical screening interview. Usually performed by some Lead person. Interview is not very complicated. We have only 60-90 minutes, so we could not go really deep. Instead we are trying to cover wide area to understand approximate level of the interviewee. In some cases second interview may be requested. Mostly that happens when interviewee mentioned some specific tools/technologies.
