    Interview

    Progressed normally at first: screening, panel interview, take-home technical questions, director-level interview scheduled... I had shared my salary expectations and current salary earlier, but they waited until now to tell me they wouldn't even try to match my current salary... Waste of time! Low salaries even for Vancouver.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Global Relay in December 2014.

    Interview

    Process started off with a phone call expressing their interest and requesting a phone interview. Phone interview went well and I soon got an in-person interview. First hour of the in-person interview was with two team members. Second hour was with two operations and hr executives. After all that was done, I received a request to have another phone call but to first send in my references. Soon after, I received a phone call offering me the job. Overall I talked to around 7-8 people and they were all friendly and pleasant. The office was also very nice and in a great location.

    Interview Questions

    • They provided a technical/brain-teaser assignment which was fairly simple.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered the job but declined due to the specific position being more basic than I thought and the salary. Other reviews and things I had read about the company also played a part.

    There was one phone interview, then you're given 48 hours to complete an assignment. Then there's an in person technical interview that involved a panel of team leads and developers from the company to discuss the solution to your assignment. There's some whiteboarding and other questions about your knowledge of the technologies that they use. Sometime later, there's also a HR interview to determine cultural fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Global Relay (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I received a call to set up a phone interview, which went ahead as planned. The interview was pretty standard with questions about myself, my experience, and some fundamental knowledge questions. The questions, while not very complicated, were quite technical, and it may be a good idea to brush up on your Java fundamentals. The interviewers were very friendly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Global Relay in September 2016.

    Interview

    Initial screening call first, followed by a technical phone panel interview consisting of various Java questions of varying difficulty (a couple completely pointless/pedantic). The phone interview is followed by a technical assignment which seemed poorly detailed with unclear specifications and expectations. If successful the technical assignment is followed by an in-person technical interview and then a final interview with management/HR.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked to describe and provide solutions to both race conditions and deadlock in theoretical terms because I hadn't worked with multi-threading in Java.   Answer Question
