    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Havok.com (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position. Got called 1-2 weeks after by HR. We briefly discussed about my experience and was told a test would follow. After another 1-2 weeks I scheduled the 2 hour test at a fixed time. Initially the person sending the test would email me 5 min before the fixed time - 10 min after the start time and still no answer, eventually I got the test with the delay.

    The test wasn't difficult yet there were many questions for the given interval. There were 3 sections mainly (general programming algorithms - simple ones, architecture/optimization problems and 1 3d math problem) - each test had a point score 10 or 15 points. I didn't do the math problem (ran out of time), but did very well on architecture/optimization and fairly well on algorithms (without 1 exercise which I had no time).

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Havok.com (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I first talked to a recruiter on the phone, and completed a written programming test for him. Then a week or so later, I had a technical interview with an engineer on the team that the position was with. A few weeks after that I had an on-site interview that was a 4 hour programming test using a real development environment followed by technical group interviews and 1 on 1 interviews.
