    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Federal Signal (Irvine, CA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Company currently does not have a Software Development Manager, interviewed by QA manager and junior developer. Casual conversation with QA Manager, junior developer seemed unprepared and asked no technical questions. Only relevant questions were along the lines of 'Have you used Websphere?'
    Seems like a decent company, but there is some concern about the recent departure of the FS CEO and ongoing suit against FS regarding there ETC tags.
