    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ION Geophysical.

    Interview

    Very gentle interviews. No technical drills at all. The interviews are one-to-one. They hardly ask any technical questions. It seems they trust the employee who brought your resume in. So, if they have an opening and if you have a friend who is in some good position there, then you can almost be sure that you get hired by them. I never see anyone hired through a recruiter there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ION Geophysical (Houston, TX) in April 2007.

    Interview

    this had to be one of the best interviews i had ever been on. The Manager was very pleasant and easy to talk to. After all introductions were completed, I was given a formal orientation on what the company was all about. After this we took a tour around the facility and I had a chance to interact briefly with the rest of the Engineers present. I was introduced to the primary systems and given a crash course on its functionalities. I would say this all took close to 1hr.20mins. total. At the end of the interview, i was told i had what they were looking for and i would be contacted shortly. Great interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked pretty softball questions like what languages had I worked in and to what level of complexity. There were very few technically specific questions. They also wanted to know what analysis methodologies I had worked with. That was pretty much it.   1 Answer
