Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Evertz Microsystems (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

Interview

Applied as a part of University Coop program. Interview was on campus. There was a 45 min in person interview with a written technical portion. The interviewer was the senior engineer and was extremely nice. He was really knowledgeable in his field and was genuinely interested in knowing more about the candidates. Technical questions were in C/C++, mostly about bit shifting, pointers, and OOP practices.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Evertz Microsystems (Burlington, ON (Canada)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    An HR phone interview of about 30 minuted followed by a 3-part in-person interview lasting 2 hours. The in-person interview was very exhaustive, starting with a one-on-one with the manager followed by an interview with each of 2 team leads. The process allowed me to get a good understanding of the position. I was asked several technical questions relating to the role and to my software background.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Evertz Microsystems (Burlington, ON (Canada)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Got invited to an on-campus interview, which I passed easily (reverse a linked list). Next step was group on-site, which included a tour and then individual interview with a member of their team. For whatever reason he decided to ask me to implement bubble sort. I struggled, not with the code, but because I didn't actually understand how bubble sort worked (who bothers to learn the most inefficient algorithm?). I guess they thought I understood it and simply failed at coding which is why they decided not to extend an offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Evertz Microsystems (Burlington, ON (Canada)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The initial interview was over the phone with the recruiter. No technical questions were asked, just some basic information along with salary and career expectations. Within a day I heard back from HR about scheduling a second interview at their main office in Burlington.

    My interview was scheduled the following week, and I met with two senior engineers from the R&D department. The first interviewer asked me some general technical questions about programming and some other topics (e.g. What does the 'volatile' keyword mean in C? What's the difference between 1080p and 1080i?)

    The second interviewer asked some more detailed and specific questions. I was asked to describe for him a system I designed previously in a block diagram. I was also given a programming task to do on paper (Write a program to push and pop an element in a queue implemented as a circular linked list.), and a second programming task that involved string manipulation.

    After the interview, I had not heard back from HR for more than 3 weeks. The recruiter also didn't respond to my followup e-mail 2 weeks following the interview. After which I called the recruiter to find out what happened with my application. After reminding them of myself, I was told that a decision hasn't been made yet. A few days later I received a standard rejection e-mail.

    I was disappointed in the complete lack of communication following my second interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Evertz Microsystems (Burlington, ON (Canada)) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was initiated with a 1:1 interview with a member of their R&D group. After this interview I was asked to come to their main office and conduct a second interview. The level of difficulty of the first interview was not that high compared to the second interview. The second interview was a 1:1 interview with 4 different individuals. One of them was a current intern, which allowed us to get an inside look at the life of an intern at the company (this was a co-op/intern opportunity). The other 3 individuals seemed to be experts in their fields and it was a very challenging interview. They asked all sorts of technical and non-technical problem solving questions. The main reason I found it a bit challenging was because I was not aware that I will be interviewed by 3 people and hence, I was not in the right mind set. Regardless, I did good in the interview and got the offer.

    Reasons for Declining
