    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Guaranteed Rate (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn. There was a phone screening interview. After there is a phone technical interview with very basic questions on OOP. After passing the technical interview, I was asked to do a "homework" on REST API using any language. After I did the "homework", I was invited onsite. The onsite interview lasted very long, about 6 hours, and all about behavioral questions. There is no time left for lunch, and you have to eat when they ask questions. During the breaks between the interviews, I was kicked out from the conference room that was reserved for the interview because the group was saying they have a meeting. I was told I would get my feedback in 1-2 days, but it has been a week still no response.

The manager was very sweet and made me even more excited to work for this company. I liked that the interview felt more like a casual conversation rather than a criminal investigation.
