Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Broomfield, CO

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at McKesson (Broomfield, CO) in August 2016.

Interview

There were three stages to the interview process (this was for a mid-level position):
1. A one hour technical phone interview with senior/lead engineers.
2. A programming project to be completed on your own time. It should take about 6-8 hours to finish.
3. A three hour on site interview with the engineering director and the lead engineers. They use this time to ask about your thought process for your programming solution as well as discuss any concerns either side might have.

Interview Questions

  • What do you look for when conducting a code review?
    How would you handle a conflict of design ideas with a team member?
    What is your favorite design pattern and why?
    When would you use constructor injection?
    In what situation would you use mocking?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McKesson.

    Interview

    There was one phone interview, and then just one on-site interview. There were no technical questions, only behavioral questions about what I was interested in and my programming experience. It was a very casual interview and low pressure for my first internship, which was awesome. The interview was with the manager so I got to know right away who I'd be working for.

    Interview

    Initially had an on campus interview scheduled online which led to an office tour / interview at the company. The tour was informative but long. Lunch was provided and I interviewed with the same employee I interviewed with the first time as well as one other person. They asked similar questions to the first interview's questions.

    When I appied this position, they didn't offer sponsorship for F1 students. During the phone interview, I was not asked professional questions. Most questions were based on my resume. Recruiter asked me talked about my work experience and what my duties were. They didn't sponsor H1B VISA, in that time but recruiter said she would put me in waiting list. They may offer later. I don't know if she put me in the list or just euphemise.
