    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at MarkLogic (Washington, DC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Totally there were 8 rounds of interview. First 2 of them were technical interviews - both telephonic interviews in a week gap. 1st interview covered the Marklogic Fundamentals and my background in MarkLogic. 2nd Interview was in and out of J2EE that i have worked upon, no marklogic questions. The remaining 6 rounds were properly planned and scheduled in person interviews at Washington D.C. It had a proper itinerary on who's going to Interview me and it was informed to me before my travel, So i was able to be prepared mentally for it. I have requested for a quicker interview process and asked them to have it in a shorter notice as i had plans for a vacation. They nodded to it. Amongst these 6 rounds, 2 of them were technical. It was a great experience for me to attend both the technical and non technical interviews. All my travel expenses were completely reimbursed. Interview wasn't too difficult for me, as i had a lot of prior experience in MarkLogic. For Beginners, they'd to prepare a lot or atleast should've worked in a MarkLogic project end to end. Just Xquery Knowledge won't help.

    Interview

    Nice team. Tell the candidate not much about the job: While you don't want to dominate the interview time, you should start with a brief summary of the position, including the prime responsibilities, reporting structure, key challenges, and performance criteria. This will help the candidate provide relevant examples and responses.
