    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Equifax (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2014.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me soon after I posted my resume on a public job website. After giving all the information to the recruiter, I was asked to interview for the position 2 weeks later.

    The interview was in their office building and I was told there would be one, possibly two people in the interview. My original interviewer was not in office that day but there were two other developers and the manager/boss called the conference room from home. The interview was very technical and they asked very specific syntax related questions. It was my first interview and I was very nervous and gave poor answers to some of the questions and blanked on a few others. But, I was treated well and if I had more preparation and knew that they would ask very specific questions, I would have brushed up on the specifics.

    Lead Java Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Equifax (Atlanta, GA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional. Not good.

    HR contacted me and arranged an interview with a junior java developer. I didn't expect a junior developer would interview me and also while driving back to his home. Even though I was good in one of the skills, he asked which other skill do you know other than this known skill. He didn't know much about hadoop and just argued there is nothing to to do from application point of view in order for it to work in secured hadoop environment; he said just the secured hadoop environment should be setup.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Equifax (New Brunswick, NJ) in November 2017.

    Interview

    It was a skype call with the HR and it was a pretty easy call. They didnt go into asking about data structures and algorithms. They asked me first what i am good at. I said Java and SQL and based on that they asked me questions. They also asked me about JavaScript, XML, CSS, PLSQL again just the basics. I could've prepared well and given a better one. The experience was good.

    Strategic Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Equifax (Saint Louis, MO) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. I received a phone call from one of the recruiters. He asked very basic questions. A week later I got another call and they asked me to fly to St Louis for a group interview. Their travel office arranged the flight departure and returning times. I arrived to their office at 1:30 PM. My interview was scheduled for 3:30. They had me waiting in the lobby for 2 hours even though they had just finished with the prior candidate before me. At 3:40 they finally sent for me. I was in a small room with 4 members of their team. And, at 4:25 the interview was over. Did they know that I got on a plane to see them and flew 600 miles??? Did they know that their travel office booked me on the last flight at 10:00 PM. They didn't seem very concern about any of it. One interviewer didn't even know where I lived. It was a very bad experience. A glaring lack of professional and common courtesy. I never felt welcomed.
