    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Lenovo in March 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was via telephone with a team lead and another software engineer. It lasted about an hour and was very friendly. There was a short employment history & behavioral conversation, and a long discussion around technology specific to the project I would be working on.

    The second interview was an online coding exam. There were four programming problems of equal difficulty designed to test basic programming aptitude (simple algorithms and syntax). The entire test was online, timed (2 hours) and recorded. Results are sent to the interviewers.

    The third interview was a very brief conversation with the department manager (30 mins). It was basically a review of the skills I could bring to the team and a couple clarifying questions about my resume, along with some additional information about the position.

    A day after the third interview, I was made an offer.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lenovo in June 2016.

    Interview

    This was a new position and I believe they really did a poor job on what the role truly ended up being as the position was not what they said it would be.

    Interview

    Most candidates that make it to the interview process are referrals. There are usually two phone interviews, then one face-to-face interview. Questions relate to experience, accomplishments, and describing situations that required you to think outside the box and had paid off.

    Interview Questions

    • All pretty standard, it's not an unusual format by any means.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I wouldn't advise being picky as they tend to do their best to give the best possible offer upfront.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lenovo.

    Interview

    Interview process was fairly straight forward and not challenging. Been in far harder settings. Face to face was the final with 5 or 6 other interviews. The process was HR, hiring manager and then a few other peers and directors then a final interview with the hiring manager. Questions were many situational and around my background and why I would be a good fit for the role.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lenovo (Morrisville, NC) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Was brought in by a temp company. Had a short interview process where I spoke with people who would be on my team and discussed past work. I was asked into a conference where 4 people sat. Both managers and future co-workers. Everyone was welcoming and quite pleasant.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation... I went through a temp agency and there was no room for negotiation. Very small raises from year to year.
