    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intrepid Pursuits.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me in a day after I applied online asking for my availability. Thats it, she never responded back. I left multiple emails trying to contact her but got no response. I genuinely liked what the company was doing but looks like recruiting team is not their best point.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intrepid Pursuits (Cambridge, MA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The process was three steps. Step one was an phone screening with a recruiter. Step two was a phone interview with the Director of Marketing. Step three was when they brought me into their office, where I interviewed with three different employees. They got back to me a week later. No offer, but the process was fast and the communication between them was on point.

    Apprentice IOS Developer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Intrepid Pursuits (Cambridge, MA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    First let me say that it is my belief that it was my age (I'm just over 50) that was the reason I was passed over for the apprenticeship and was treated the way I was treated.

    First, a brief background. I have worked with Macs for many years, repairing the hardware and helping clients with OS X and IOS issues. My business took a hit as the mac hardware became less and less repairable, so two years ago I went back to college to validate knowledge I already had and to fill in any gaps in that knowledge with the view to getting a job in networking - security, systems administration etc. I maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA through all my courses. In the spring of 2017 I took a course in introductory IOS programming. (I already had some Java and Python experience) I fell in love with Swift and xCode and even turned in 2 final projects, one which was the very basic app that was assigned and the other which was the app with all the functionality and features you would expect from a professional app.

    My professor was very impressed and told me about the apprenticeship program at Intrepid which takes in computer savvy applicants with some programming experience and a strong interest in IOS development and works with them "Code Camp"style to turn them into junior IOS developers. I was a perfect fit she said and if I was interested she had a friend who was the IOS director and she would give me a strong recommendation for the program. I said I was very interested and so she contacted her friend and made the recommendation.

    I sent them my resume and was soon contacted to set up a phone interview. This was a simple screening call and it was scheduled and confirmed for 6/21/17 at 11:30am. It would last about 30 minutes and they would call me.

    The day came and I sat by the phone from 11:00am till nearly 1:00pm. No call came. I sent an email to the person conducting the interview asking if they wanted to reschedule and got no reply. I emailed again in case they hadn't received my first one but still nothing.

    After 5 days I finally emailed the IOS director who had been my initial contact and asked what happened.

    He said that things were busy and that was most likely what happened. (Really? Too busy to even send a brief email?)

    The woman who'd set up the initial interview emailed the next day and after a brief apology set up another appointment for the screening interview.

    This time she did call but the interview lasted all of 10 - 15 minutes and it was painfully obvious that she was just going through the motions. She said she would call by the end of the week and let me know what they'd decided. No call ever came.

    I believe that at some point between their enthusiastic emails setting up the first interview and the time of that actual interview itself someone figured out my age from the dates that I was in high school. (My birthdate was not on my resume) This is the reason no one called. They couldn't be bothered once they knew how old I was. Writing to the IOS director got me that sad excuse for a screening interview that followed.

    Interview Questions

    • General questions about past employment, programming interests, and the like. My interview was likely shorter than usual. YMMV There were no skill questions as the next step was to be a technical interview.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intrepid Pursuits (Boston, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had two phone screens. The first with the hiring manager was the usual basic questions: describe your experiences, how did you get into programming, etc. The second was a technical phone screen that was partly online through codeshare. Very basic questions.

    However, even though I answered the second question correctly (in 4 lines of code), they wanted me to redo it in an overly-complex manner. When I had completed it, they tried to point out that it was incorrect. I had to point out to them in return that I had indeed done it correctly. The response was pretty much 'Oh.' It seemed like they were looking for something very specific for the answer and, even though I got the answer right using two different ways, it wasn't exactly what they wanted and thus didn't accept my answers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Intrepid Pursuits (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Three stage interview process. First you have the HR round, then a technical phone interview, along with an onsite. The phone interview was not bad. However, after looking at some of the glassdoor reviews, and then speaking to HR... it occurred to me that this company does not really promote a culture that I want to be a part of. More specifically, the way this company is run, encourages favoritism (which is one of hte main complaints from employees working there). I never ended up showing up to the on-site interview of this (it's a three hour drive each way, it's not worth going, if I know I don't want the job because of the favoritism and Brogrammer Culture).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intrepid Pursuits (Boston, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I Applied online in the end of May, and the interview process started in early June. It starts with a phone screening in which I was asked by HR about my background and experiences. I originally applied for Android developer position, however because of lack of industrial experience, HR recommended me to switch to Apprentice program which is for fresh graduates. Then she arranged me a 30-min technical phone interview. During the call he asked me two questions with remote white-boarding, and one question just for ideas without real coding. After two days I received their invitation to a onsite interview in their Boston office. The onsite consist of 3 one-on-one technical interview each about 45 min long. Each interviewer asked two questions for white boarding. The overall experience is very positive, and the people are nice to talk with.
