    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Impetus Technologies (Phoenix, AZ) in May 2018.

    Interview

    The process involved 3 rounds totally and this was a walk-in drive conducted by Impetus.

    Sales Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Impetus Technologies (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Met with several recruiters then a VP. Impetus is infatuated with Skype. All interviews were on Skype, I asked if it could be a phone call and that was met with much resistance. They wanted to fly me to CA for full day face to face meetings, throughout entire process they refused to share compensation details. Was told several times that it was competitive and not to worry about it. After 3 attempts to get comp details with no success and more importantly, after speaking live with a former Impetus sales rep, I cancelled the CA meeting.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Impetus Technologies.

    Interview

    Interview call, and 3 rounds of interviews and offer, all happened in one week itself. Fast and interesting. I liked the fact that they mean business, respect others time and see that the candidate is not feeling lost at any point of time. Had interactions with senior leaders of the company and that helps know where the company is heading to.

    Entry Level Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Impetus Technologies (San Jose, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter. Went in for walk-in drive. There were total three interviews. The first interview was fine, mostly java concepts in-depth. The interview was really long and tiring. Then came the second round, I was stunned at the attitude the senior members of the company were showing. Two members were present during Through out the interview, they were not really interested in knowing what I knew, but tried to emphasize on what I didn't know, they seem to be mocking me which made me feel even more nervous. I would say that these guys should understand that they are not hiring for a company like Google and learn to be down-to-earth if not nice to their interviewees. The HR, however, was really sweet and calm.

    Big Data Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Impetus Technologies (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2018.

    Interview

    This interview is for Phoenix, AZ location. All interviews are over skype. 2 Technical interviews (one at a time) followed by HR discussion.
    Each interview is on a weekend. The recruiter who works from India is very poor in coordinating with the candidates. All his feedbacks are one word responses.
    The recruiter sent an email after the HR discussion asking for confirmation on the salary and after two weeks he started going back on his word and asking me to accept the salary that is very much lower than what he confirmed in an earlier email. This sounds very unprofessional.

    Instead of looking at the skills and experience of a candidate they focus on what you are earning and what is the expected salary. They never care about your skills and value you bring in. To me it looks like a just body shop company.

    It was my mistake to accept the interview with them.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic MapReduce and Java questions. Covered other components in Hadoop eco system (Hive, Sqoop and Oozie). Few questions Spark performance and architecture.   Answer Question
