Easy Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Guidewire

Interview

A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn. From there, every call happened quickly and efficiently. I had about 3 or 4 interviews, but each one was purposeful. I created a presentation for my final interview. Overall the whole process took about a month, and I received my offer letter very shortly after. Definitely a smooth and easy process that helped to aid in my decision to move to Guidewire!

Interview Questions
  • They asked how I would approach a specific marketing and branding issue. Also asked about my current skillset and which areas I excel.

Interview

Applied online and got an email back with instructions to a coding test, took the test, and then did not hear back directly for a few months. They did say that candidates would be contacted again in a few days after the interview so I assumed that I was not selected.

Interview Questions
  • Used a third party coding test site, two questions and 1 hour to solve them.

I applied online. I interviewed at Guidewire in Jun 2022

Interview

Did not receive any call from HR to discuss what the role is about or to understand the expectation. Directly received an email to complete a test on Codility. After the test received another email for a technical interview. Again no call to understand the expectations. The interview was about Java OOPS and live coding with a lot of stress on syntax and knowledge of methods. Applying for the role of architect I expected some scenario-based questions and real-world problems but what I got was a test on java syntax.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guidewire (Kuala Lumpur) in May 2022

Interview

First screening was a Codility accessment which tested was intermediate level java, followed by a technical interview where I was asked to explain and implement some code snippets followed by another test (leet code type question - must easier than the codility accessment). My tips are BE CURIOUS and be open to alternate solutions to your answer. Show them that that you are thinking outside of the one solution you provided. I think that's what they are looking for.
