    Interview was over the phone. First with a recruiter who asked me about myself and told me about the interviewing process.

    Started with a phone interview with standard interview questions and some about threading.

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at MDA Corporation (Richmond, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Overall, this was a very upsetting and unprofessional experience.

    After a phone screening with HR, they invited me for an in-house interview which lasted 3 hours. I had a panel of 3 interviewers. They will analyze your basic understanding of C++ or Java.

    They ask about your projects and question the choices you made in them. I typically have no problem with this. However, the panel of interviewers were very unprofessional. When I asked what were some improvements they could suggest the answer one of the panelists gave me was "It's too late now".

    Interview Questions

    • Given object oriented code: what are some issues/ problems / improvements you can find in this?   1 Answer
    • I was shown a function declaration and ask how I would test it.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Pretty lengthy. They asked a lot of behavioural based interview questions and situational questions. They asked why MDA among others, so candidates need to know something about them that's not in their website!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at MDA Corporation (Richmond, BC (Canada)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Not very technical. Most of the time, if not all, spent going over the resume. Make sure everything on the resume is correct. It seems to be very important to everyone on the interview team. The place seems a bit pretentious. To the point that people appear to wear eye glasses to look "smarter". I am sure the successful at what they do, but start-up environment they are not.
