    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GNS Healthcare (Cambridge, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview began with a screening phone call with the head of the department. Afterwards, I was given a programming exercise that took about two hours. It was of moderate difficulty. I think being prepared with an arsenal of dataframe-related tools helped.
    A couple of days later I was invited for an on-site interview. I had four one-on-one interviews that varied in difficulty. In the end, I would assess that I did really well in two, well in one, and in the other I did ok, as it was possibly the most difficult interviewee.
    Fortunately I was asked to provide list of references the next day. Two weeks later I received an offer.
    The whole process took about 4 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GNS Healthcare.

    Interview

    The interview process was not well coordinated. Interviewers were late to very late. I interviewed with 6+ people: twice in person at the office and one phone interview. I liked the people and the enthusiasm, but the organization was lacking. I got a phone call expecting to receive an offer, but was declined for all of the positions I was up for.

    It was true I probably was not a great fit for the positions offered; they were small enough to re-write the job descriptions if needed. The person who called rejecting me was less than articulate by saying I "was too old, I mean too qualified, I mean...you wouldn't be happy in this position."

    Bottom line: they are new company just learning how to be a company.

    Interview Questions

    • Overall the questions were relatively straight forward, but some of the higher level people wanted to synthesize what they and others had said.   Answer Question

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at GNS Healthcare in July 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted via phone text and asked to add Stacey Wasserman on Google Hangouts. It's a complete SCAM! Either GNS Healthcare is not a real company or there is someone falsely representing themselves in order to get people's personal information. They tell you it's a work from home opportunity, they send you checks under the guise of buying equipment and you are responsible for the funds after cashing these bad checks. SCAMMERS!

    Interview Questions

    • Personal information...including who I bank with!   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Because I researched info online as the interview was taking place and found warning posts from others.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GNS Healthcare (Cambridge, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Unorganized and lengthy with so much redundancy I wanted to leave. No wonder they give you a Starbucks $10 gift card for showing up. Even at $100 it wouldn't be worth it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at GNS Healthcare (Cambridge, MA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening followed by on-site interview. Everyone was friendly. Starbucks gift card in the goodie bag with company materials was a nice touch. The only negative was no follow up. This is disrespectful but very common in this industry.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at GNS Healthcare (Cambridge, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Whole process took 48 days between application and an offer. Had 10 interviews total, including 4 visits to Cambridge office and a few phone/Skype interviews. They are very thorough, which is great, it seems they really want to ensure they have a good fit from both technology and cultural perspective.

    I was very impressed with expertise of people I talked to, looks like they have a great diverse team of very smart people, so comprehensive interviewing process must be working well. I was asked a lot of technical questions and a number of logistics questions.

    Director of Sales Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GNS Healthcare (Cambridge, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Throughout the interview process I got the sense that GNS Healthcare has some of the brightest young people out there. Intelligence is a common theme from entry level folks right on up their C-suite. Having a Chief Mathematics Officer might give it away.

    During the interview process I met with the CEO, Chief Mathematics Officer and Chief Revenue Officer. The executive team was energetic and passionate. Their drive to take GNS to the next level was unwavering.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview process varies by position; as a sales candidate I was tested on process and industry. For the data scientist team there is another process that involves a presentation.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GNS Healthcare (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    The CEO seemed to be interested in the whole package, gauging interest in the field and my Myers Briggs score. It was obviously important also what my "pedigree" was. I think I was an excellent candidate without the necessary names who knew me and a lack of demonstrated skills in the field.
