Senior Software Engineer Interview

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.

    Interview is standard and week organized. You start with hr and end up with couple tech conversation including more theory and couple practical questions. Complex questions may come only if they feel incontinent in your answers. Buy mostly they don't expect to get exact resolution for such questions

    Interview

    WORST INTERVIEW PROCESS!! These guys make fools of everyone. I waited for 3 hours in their premise for the first round of interview. One of their talent recruitment team members came over there and started explaining why did it take so long. My first round went really good. The interviewer got impressed . He called HR in front of me and confirmed for next round in the upcoming week. But then I didn't hear back from them. I tried to follow up over email, but no luck.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EPAM (Budapest (Hungary)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    There were 3 rounds:
    - HR
    - Technical interview
    - Interview with the resource manager

    After the technical interview I got a call from the HR that the technical interview went really well and she invited me to the last round.
    At the end of the last interview the resource manager asked me about my salary expectation and I answered that it is still the same as it was on the first interview.
    The reaction of the resource manager surprised me: "Do you still insist to it? Are you kidding with me? Let it go man!"
    I did not know about that I was classified as regular. I got the info from HR that the technical interview went really well. I am pretty sure that there are better ways to communicate your classification/level rather than being a jerk.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at EPAM (Bengaluru (India)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter scheduled interview face to face interview saying its a good opportunity. But on reaching at the venue, found out that its a pool drive. I had to wait for a long time. Then, instead of conducting face to face interview they did written round, then interview. Hardly, 2-3 persons were there for conducting the process. I didn't like the interview process at all. Complete waste of time. Also, it doesn't seem to be good paying company. I suggest you not to go for this company.
