    Software Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gatineau, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macadamian (Gatineau, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Getting an interview was straightforward enough. An interview was arranged within a few days and I turned up at their offices above a pizza shop. Initial impressions were uninspiring to say the least.

    Interview Questions

    • Generally just awkward interactions. The interviewer was unfriendly and lacked any real personality. I was confused as to why they asked me to interview for this position in the first place and this passive/aggressive display left me feeling even more confused.   Answer Question

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Macadamian (Yerevan (Armenia)).

    Interview

    Applied online and got a phone call from HR in 2 days, made an appointment for onsite interview.

    The process had 5 steps:
    1. Short technical/personality check interview also about previous work experience partially in English (the team members are from different countries, you'll need English for daily meetings). Approximately 30 minutes long.
    2. Core programming language related quiz (C# at that time) with multiple choice answers. 20-25 minutes long.
    3. Deep technical/core programming interview with one of leads/architects. 50-60 minutes long.
    4. Summary interview with one of Development Managers.
    5. Interview with General Manager.

    I passed the steps 1-4 the same day. In a week I got an appointment for the interview with GM.

    Software Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gatineau, QC (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macadamian (Gatineau, QC (Canada)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I connected with the HR department through LinkedIn and organized a phone call with them to discuss the position that they were recruiting for. I was them invited to come to the HQ and did an interview with technical experts, then with the management and finally with HR.
    I felt that the questions were not easy but appropriate for the position, quite open ended to leave me the liberty to express my view/creativity and rather clever/interesting.
    Overall a very good experience with Macadamian staff.
    I did not take the job because I was offered a more exciting challenge elsewhere.

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gatineau, QC (Canada)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macadamian (Gatineau, QC (Canada)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I made a cold approach and asked for an interview. They were kind enough to invite me in and gave me a tour of what were then their current offices and their soon-to-be new offices. It turned out that they didn't actually have any position openings at the time, but they still wanted to reach out to a new grad and give her some pointers on how to get a leg up in our business. The advice I received in the interview and the reception I received from approaching them was such a huge boot to my confidence.
    They are wonderful people, and while I didn't end up working for them I certainly hope I cross paths with the good people from Macadamian in the future.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Gatineau, QC (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macadamian (Gatineau, QC (Canada)).

    Interview

    The interview began with some very high level questions about software development, and gradually went into specifics about the programming language being used on the project (Java). Nothing too complex, probably intermediate level stuff, at most.

    Half the time was spent working on a whiteboard problem. There was no actual coding, but rather, it seemed to be a test of how you thought things through. The requirements were changed many times as you went along, presumably to simulate a real-world projects ever-changing specs.

    There was some laid-back discussion, as well, about all kinds of topics. Not a stressful interview, thankfully. You didn't feel as if you were jumping through hoops, as happens with some technical interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't recall any big surprises amongst the questions. The interviewer wasn't trying to pull one over on you, in an attempt to make themselves look smarter.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The initial offer was lower than I wanted. I asked for more, and got it. Your mileage may very.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Macadamian (Gatineau, QC (Canada)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly relaxed and informal, and I appreciated that; however, like most interviews, I didn't feel like the questions asked really explored my potential for being a good tester.
