    Embedded Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burnaby, BC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fortinet (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied a different position but called for interview for embedded software engineer. I passed their home test (2.5hr) and then were called on for an onsite interview.

    I think they just use the home test to verify if you can write code, nothing more than that.

    In the email, it was mentioned I should check their products and get familiar with network techniques. I spent a few days on that. On the onsite interview, there is actually 1.5 hr coding test, with a couple of coding questions. There was nothing tricky in their coding test , all basic textbook algorithms (sorting, searching, linked list,.., pointer manipulation) but definitely needed muscle memory.

    I was told my background was not a good fit at the very beginning of the interview. Then I got frustrated and performed pretty poorly during the interview process.

    Software Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fortinet (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied at Fortinet through an on-campus career fair for a job as a new grad and went to an on campus screening interview a couple days later. The screening interview was extremely disorganized. I waited for an hour past my scheduled time and there was still a candidate in front of me before I left without getting my interview. Nonetheless, I was contacted a week later by a recruiter saying I was still a potential candidate for a position as a developer and I would need to complete a skill testing question in order to continue.
    Why not? The position sounded interesting so I agreed and they sent me the "Skill testing question".
    Only it wasn't just a small test question I have come to expect from my previous interview.
    It was a fully spec'd out complex end-to-end application that involved everything from building a web client to a back end data store. They gave me 24 hours.
    The worst part is that there was absolutely no indication that this was even a test problem. The spec showed an application that would be directly relevant to the work being done at Fortinet. I'm pretty sure that I would be spending my day working on a live project, for free, just for the chance to get an interview. Even the filename for the spec is suspicious "Devops_Engineer_Project.txt".

    Overall this was a terrible interview experience and I would not recommend Fortinet to anybody based on my experience.
