Engineering Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NVIDIA (San Jose, CA).

Interview

This may be unusual - not everyone's experience may be like this.

During general introductions, the recruiter criticized my former employers and used some adjectives to compare them with NVidia. In trying to establish that they don't negotiate salaries, commented on my past choices.

I gave factual, courteous answers and focused on actual interviews that were about to start.

Sometimes recruiters don't realize that polite candidates might let unwelcoming language pass without retort, but they are impacting the NVidia's brand as an employer.

The interviews were fine in general but we didn't seem to be a match. I don't get surprised by odd questions or behaviour, but interviewers tended to cut my answers off mid-sentence. They did not like me setting context for my answers to what seemed like theoretical situation MCQ list. The role requires soft skills and situations are not black or white.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Had two rounds of interviews for a software engineering manager position: one 45 minute 1:1 with a VP and then a full day of interviews with 7 different people for six hours. They also had an engineer as part of the interview who asked questions about linked lists.

    The managers I spoke with were great. The big exception was the HR rep. He never got back to me and hasn't responded to several e-mails. Considering I spent seven hours with these people a decency of a response would have been appreciated.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in July 2009.

    Interview

    a normal interview process with the team and manager. a variety of questions - mostly to gauge experience - no specific technical questions. interview process was split over 2 - 3 days because of availability. interviews were rescheduled near the end so really didn't know who I would be interviewing with until the last minute - therefore couldn't research interviewers

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA) in August 2008.

    Interview

    I got a cold call from an aggressive recruiter. I wasn't really looking but agreed to come in and talk. I spoke to the manager of all hiring managers who does the initial screening process. We talked about my current job, and some of the opportunities at the company. Even thought I’m happy at my current job, I am worried in this economy so I was willing to explore possibilities. Eventually we concluded I might be a good for the systems group- but they didn’t have any current openings, so we parted ways and agreed to keep in touch. I connected with the manager on linked in, and that’s about it.
