    Lead .NET Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Maven Wave Partners (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen by HR, technical phone interview, on-site interview with HR, another developer, a Principal and a product manager. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable, willing to answer all questions. The only problem I found is that they never, ever called or emailed afterwards with feedback. I left voice mails for HR and emailed with no response.

    Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Maven Wave Partners (Chicago, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process can be quick or fairly lengthy. It all is derived from needs at the client engagements. With that said, the firm is always trying to find good talent to keep the pipeline of quality professionals solid. So my experience was fairly standard in that we met a few times over a couple months to make sure the firm and I matched well. Then when the right client opportunity was presented, I was ready to take the job.

    In other situations, there is an immediate need and the entire interview process can be completed in a couple of days.

    Interview Questions

    • This is highly dependent on the role be applied for and individual interviewer. However, in general we look for strong business consultants who have supporting tech skills, or vice versa. So depending if you are a 'business major' or a 'tech major' be prepared to answer very detailed questions in your respective area of expertise.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The firm is very fair when it comes to negotiation. They understand that it doesn't do any good to hire someone on that is unhappy with compensation. This is just a recipe for issues down the road. That being said, the firm understands current market value of roles.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Maven Wave Partners (Chicago, IL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Standard interview started with a recruiter followed by several phone interviews with various levels within the company. I found the phone interviews to be mostly standard experience based interviews with little challenge. I ended the process with a face 2 face interview with one of the senior partners. The recruiter ended up discussing an offer however I declined based on the cultural fit of the company.
