    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Guidewire in December 2015.

    Interview

    Lengthy process. It involved an initial screening interview via phone, followed by 1-on-1 phone interview with the hiring manager, then skills testing for the position, and eventually an on site interview. They asked a lot of questions. They obviously take the interview process very seriously and invest significant time into the process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Guidewire (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    Had a few initial discussions with the recruiter who I already knew from a previous job. I completed an offline coding test which lasted for 5 hours. I then had a technical telephone screening and was then invited for a number of face to face interviews at their offices.

    Overall, very thorough and very good structured process which ensures hiring decisions are based on facts, cultural fit and technical expertise.

    Interview

    This job involves a lot of travel working at their client sites. I went through the first phone interview but didn't have time to complete the second multi-hour programming assignment. First phone interview consisted of Java trivia questions such as the various access modifiers, inheritance, etc.
