    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Fidelity Investments (Boston, MA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    (1) In person interview with recruiting firm. They just go over your resume and make sure you can comb your hair and speak cogent English.

    (2) Phone interview with a team Engineer. Very basic questions about your resume and experience.

    (3) On site interview. Behavioral questions with project manager, program manager and an architect. Asked to write some very primitive code and then unit tests for it. Asked to diagram a simple state machine on the white board. Asked some "what if" questions around designing an application architecture.

    Also interviewed with another team, same format as above, but assigned a coding assignment by email (command line Java timer application). Emailed in code and then was asked to walk through it at the in person interview and explain how it worked and why I wrote it that way.

    Interview Questions

    • All very easy. In person coding question was so trivial I started down a few more complex paths until I realized it really was that trivial.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Yes, got a larger signing bonus and salary.
