    Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redlands, CA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Esri (Redlands, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview. Not the first incident with Esri. There have been a few other phone screens with this company and my background absolutely has the background and experience but cannot get feedback nor are they professional.

    Interview Questions

    • Not really a question as more of a perspective. Poor interviewer. Far too much attitude especially when asked about the environment and management style and philosophy. I would not even consider working for this company. I save companies in the millions and generate revenue in the millions and if this is the type of recruiter at this level I can only imagine what it is to work for this company. I don't care how successful a business has been. You DO NOT treat candidates this way especially considering their expertise and background. If they can take time out to meet with you you can provide the courtesy and respect. They are interviewing you as well as you the candidate. The interview was not difficult other than disrespect shown by the recruiter doing the interviewing. Nor did I even receive the courtesy to have a call back thanking me for my time but they had chosen another candidate. Stay Away from this company!   1 Answer

    Interview

    Very, very, very, very, very, very, very long process. Expect multiple phone interviews and then a long "onsite" interview that will last 8 hours. You will interview with many different people.

    Software Engineer Interview

    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Esri.

    Interview

    Initial process was an interview with a recruiter where they set salary expectations, gave a sense of the company's process, etc. Didn't ask many technical questions.

    Second was a morning interview with the team. Included a half hour interview with a manager, who was mainly interested in geospatial experience, industry insights, etc. Second was a panel interview with the team and was primarily technical (my background, technologies I've used, most complicated project I'd worked on. Followed by an interview with their tech lead and with a developer, which went into more technical detail.

    Interview Questions

    • No particular questions come to mind. Was a fairly standard technical interview without any coding exercises or algorithmic questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straightforward. After an initial contact by the HR department, a day-long interview was scheduled. I was interviewed by teams of one or two people. They asked relatively easy programming questions and some geography related ones. Overall, everyone was friendly and easy-going. The entire procedure was pretty standard.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Esri (Redlands, CA) in December 2008.

    Interview

    The interview process at ESRI is so long and drawn out to the point of being burdensome and over the top. I did two phone interviews and had one on site interview. At the on site interviews I had eleven interviews in one day each lasting about 30 to 45 minutes. I interviewed with people from all over the company, and I am not sure why. Most people I interviewed with did not even work in the department I was being considered for, nor did they know any details about the job I was interviewing for. In fact, the whole process was so disorganized that by the end of the day even I didn't know the specifics of the job I was interviewing for. I would say the interview process lacked focus and meaning.

    Negotiation

    The company was unwilling to change their offer. If I didn't need a job to pay rent I would have declined the offer rather than simply ask them to reconsider it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Esri (Redlands, CA).

    Interview

    I interned at Esri this past summer so I knew everyone who interviewed me which was a great advantage. I had my interview for full time on my last day as an intern. The interview is about 8 hours long. You will meet the HR person at 9 and she will go over some details and will give you the list of people who will be interviewing you. After that she will take you to your next interview and drops you off, afterward at the end of each interview, the interviewers will take you to the office of the person who will be interviewing you next. They're going to be back to back with an hour somewhere in there for lunch. Make sure you bring a water bottle with you, you'll be talking A LOT.

    The interview questions were pretty standard, what you'd expect to see during an interview. Only one of the interviews was programming, and the rest were more like discussing things.

    You'll be asked to code in Visual Studio which is pretty nice.

    • What would I change about the existing tools/workflows? How would I change the Common API? (Common API is what I was working with all summer so I gave my personal thoughts on it)   Answer Question
