    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    No Offer
    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fortinet (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview, In person interview for about 30 mins, Written coding round
    The written round was weird because they just send you a doc file. How is one suppose to code in that? I did not understand why they need networking and C questions for a frontend role. The optional question where we had to build a website with a fake api was good.
