    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waterloo, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Invited for an interview, arrived and then immediately was led to a cubicle to do an impromptu 1.5hr low-level coding test. No "hello, how are you, welcome" etc. Interviewers had extremely weak social skills and it reflects horrendously on the company.

    A 1.5hr coding test is insulting and hilarious to employees with university degrees from top schools with 10 years of programming experience.

    Verbal portion of the interview was fair and standard.

    Office layout was depressing and the area smelled of stale coffee and inactivity. Cubicle walls were high and a very old looking blue colour. Employees looked depressed, unkept and unmotivated.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about what would happen in various hypothetical conditions if software was coded by amateurs. Interviews themselves were unsure of what would happen.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Win32 is out of date and low-level windows programming is a thing of the past.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at McAfee (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Recruiter email after applying directly to job, single interview character type questions and a few job interview brain teasers mostly to see how you think. Very few technical questions. Only technical question was what is the fastest way to sort a list.
