    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Interactive Intelligence (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    The interview process was straightforward, there was a phone screen followed by an on site interview. The process was smooth until I received an offer. My initial offer was lowered because it would have been too large of a salary increase for me so I did not accept the offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Interactive Intelligence (Indianapolis, IN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First I toured the campus and talked to someone in HR. There had been some confusion about what day I would come so I had to wait for 30 minutes to have the technical interview. I then met with some developers in the department I would be joining. They asked me some general questions about projects I had liked, and career goals I had. Then I completed a small test in C and answered some questions about object oriented programming.
    After the interview one of the developers walked me out to my car and was very friendly.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Interactive Intelligence.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a phone screen, followed by an in person interview in the RTP office. The in-person interview lasted 3 hours and ranged from general to technical in nature. The interview was split in to multiple sessions conducted by multiple interviewers.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember too many specific questions, but there was a decent amount of questions related to application architecture and even some diagramming.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't really negotiate, but in retrospect, wished that I had as I feel that my compensation is slightly lower than others with similar roles.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interactive Intelligence.

    Interview

    I met with Interactive Intelligence at my university job fair.
    The first interview was a call with the intern program manager. This was around 45 minutes and full of behavioral questions. The purpose was to understand your experience, understand what you know about interactive intelligence, and determine if you would fit with them.

    The second interview was a technical phone screen with the team leader. The phone screen consisted of simple questions from loops, basic object oriented programming concepts, and simple data structures.

    The third interview was a technical onsite interview. I was able to meet and talk with the developers on the team and learn about their first hand experience on projects. The interview was split up into two parts and I met with a different team member for each. For the first half, I was given different code snippets and I had to explain what the code did and how I would refactor it. The code snippets given are written in code that you list on your resume. I was also asked several questions about team experiences and management, version control, and few behavioral questions. The second half was more technical and focused on Object Oriented programming principles. First few questions were basic such as, what is an object, difference between private and public, interface vs inheritance, when to use static, etc. After the questions, the interviewer gave me a variety of scenarios and I would have to write an implementation to solve the problem on whiteboard. After finishing the two halves, I was able to speak with the team leader. The team leader did not have any questions for me; it was more of an opportunity to directly ask him questions and learn more about the company.

    • Implement a catalog of students and professors. Student and Professor objects have different fields and methods. Professors can both be a Student and a Professor at the same time.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Initial screening at a university; invited to go on-site to interview with 6 people (3 technical, 3 managerial), each for 30 minutes. This was for a Systems Engineer position, which is different from what I have now (Software Engineer). The Software Engineer position was a short 30 minute informal interview (I had been at working here for 3 years), resulting in a department change.

    Negotiation

    Since I had a Masters of Science degree, I was able to negotiate several thousand dollars higher from the starting salary for people straight out of college.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Interactive Intelligence (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    Contacted by in house recruiter. Pleasant process, set up for a couple possible interviews. One position fell through because of the merger. Another position was available. Interviewed with two groups of engineers. Pleasant 20-40 white males all. ( This says a lot about the diversity that is non existent in IT). Some talked and asked questions, others sat.
    Company really needs Javascript developers. Some questions were really not in the realm of what you would be expected to do, basically unrelated to the job. They were good questions for homework in Comp Science class.

    • Build a BST in JS on the whiteboard. 15 minutes.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Interactive Intelligence (Durham, NC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty standard. Telephone -> In-person multiple interviews -> Offer. I would study for a challenging interview. It's not one of those "study for the final" but it's not a pushover either.
