Senior Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montreal, QC (Canada)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Morgan Stanley (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in November 2016.

Interview

The first step is a phone interview, with mostly technical questions.
The interviewer at this stage seemed very satisfied with his working conditions and really liked his job.

For the second stage the interviewers condescending and vaguely insulting.

The interview was difficult with mostly whiteboard questions on algorithms.

It is probably easier to pass such an interview right after university rather than after many years of work experience.
