    Senior .NET Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Masonite International (Tampa, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Started with phone interview with Masonite recruiter which included some c# Programming 101 questions. Followed by Phone interview with Lead Software Engineer who provided some info about the job and my general background. Next onsite interview with Lead Software Engineer and two more engineers followed by interview with the director.
    The company is spitting off a new group of software developers from the rest of the IT department and getting a little experimental with their software development practices with help from a software consultancy called Pivotal Labs. They are going Agile with pair programming, business stakeholder representative on each development team, open collaboration spaces instead of cubicles. When I hear this I usually think it is upper management pushing a new fad on the workers. This is coming from upper management but the director seemed to be in tune with the ground forces. At least in the case of pair programming, which I asked about, he said they were going to try it and see if it worked out and would drop it if it didn't

    Interview Questions

    • This was the best assessment of programming ability in an interview that I have encountered so far (and I have been in a lot of interviews). They took examples of bad code that they had found (and fixed) in their own code base. They asked me to spot the problem and propose a fix. There were a few standard C#/MVC/SQL questions but not many. Also an exercise in recoding some LINQ code to not use LINQ (once again a specific situation that they had actually encountered).   1 Answer
    • The director asked general personality questions "What is your best accomplishment?" "How would be describe you?" It felt like a real discussion, though; not just answers to canned questions.   Answer Question

    Group interview, went in one by one. Asked about past experience and forklift experience. Was kind of odd because none knew who they were supposed to talk to or why they were the in the first place.

    Value Stream Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stockton, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Masonite International (Stockton, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR headquarters in Florida via LinkedIn, which led to a phone interview with a panel 1 week later. Interview was fairly easy, asking about all of my experience on my resume, a few technical questions on manufacturing process control, and why I was looking for other positions.

    2 weeks later I had an in person interview with two value stream leaders and a value stream manager which, again, went very smooth and even more stress free than the phone panel interview. We mainly talked about my experience, portfolio, and how I could benefit the company. We ended the day with a tour of the facility.

    Applications Programmer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Masonite International.

    Interview

    Interview performed by your future manager. Manager sounded a little bit arrogant. He said that the company uses a full-time paired programming approach, which is pretty bad. Programmers need some freedom to work alone, which increases productivity. Doing pair programming all time is a nightmare, and reflects the manager's lack of knowledge of the development process.

    Interview Questions

    • If I would be able to bear a full-time paired programming approach.   1 Answer

    Enegy Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Masonite International in July 2015.

    Interview

    HR associate contacted me by email to arrange a phone screening. The phone screening was informal, it lasted about 20 minutes. They extended an interview with hiring manager but the daily commute would have been too far for me and I was not willing to relocate for the position. This the reason the phone screening is in place.
