    Senior Software Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Fusion-io (Louisville, CO).

    Interview

    Very extensive, grueling interview process. Phone interviews with recruiter and hiring manager. Technical phone interview with senior test engineers. FULL DAY of on-site interviews with management, senior test and automation engineers, principal developers, program management, the director of test engineering - felt like entire office. Several of the test engineers I had already had interviews with on the phone. The principal developers seemed disinterested and at times condescending. The local recruiter was out of sync with the primary recruiter from the Salt Lake office on topics like.. SALARY.

    Its worth noting, the Next-Gen folks are a tight knit group that have worked together at other companies over a number of years and joined Fusion-io through acquisition. I sensed some differences and tensions at times between the different groups, which could be one reason the interview process was stopped without an offer after such an exhaustive process. Ultimately, I am happy the way everything turned out, as I have ended up better off elsewhere.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fusion-io (Salt Lake City, UT) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I first turned in my resume at the career fair on campus. I received an email a week later that the company was interested. From there I had several phone interviews followed by an in person interview at the company. I was asked to several technical questions throughout the process so they could get an understanding of my technical level.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fusion-io in December 2013.

    Interview

    No technical questions. Just Managerial experience/skills questions with hypothetical scenarios, that have different ways to address depending on the situation at hand. Two rounds of interviews. First interviewer was very good and to the point. The second interviewer was yawning since the first minute of the interview and never made eye contact. Seemed like he had already decided from the first minute.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fusion-io.

    Interview

    I had an interview with the support manager at the time who is very technical, as well as one of the support staff. They asked me a lot of technical questions regarding Windows and Linux trouble shooting. I then had a second interview in person. I was flown to their office and I met with the director. He then gave me an offer.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fusion-io (Cottonwood Heights, UT) in July 2013.

    Interview

    They began with a lengthy coding task at home (create a machine code assembler for a legacy piece of hardware). It took many hours (I wasn't sure how fancy to make it, since the instructions said what it had to accomplish, but gave no indication beyond that of what they were really looking for).

    Since they were happy with what I coded, I was asked to do interviews on-site (nothing was done by phone). It was five or six half-hour interviews in a row. In each case, the interviewer had an unrealistically long list of questions assigned by the company. Despite the fact that I haven't coded C/C++ in many years (and told them so), half of the questions I was asked were specific to C++ (I didn't have a clue on most of those questions, which were specific to new techniques that didn't even exist when I last coded in C++). The interviews were very uneven. The C++ portions were definitely a waste of their time and mine.

    More surprisingly, even the Java questions were strange. Their use of Java is unusual and experimental, and they admitted it is likely to be refactored to something more normal in the future.

    Since more than a month later I never heard anything back from them, I'm assuming they aren't interested (but it was such a weird interview that I probably wouldn't have accepted an offer anyway).

    • I don't even remember the name of the C++ technique I was asked about (I had never heard of it before).   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fusion-io in May 2013.

    Interview

    Apply from school coop system, got first interview after 2 weeks, then the second interview after another week. Two weeks after that, decision was made. Another accident happened that the team did not have enough positions to hire me, but soon they asked one more from department.

    Interview Questions

    • Most are normal digital design questions. I made mistakes and the interviewer helped me figure them out. The day after the second interview, they sent me a written simple question. It was about figuring out the power button logic, and making a rough design.   Answer Question
