    Phone interview first. I did not feel this went well. There were absolutely no questions about my background, education or experience. I was called back in for a face to face which also was a bit uncomfortable but they hired me.

    Applications Architect Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at National Student Clearinghouse (Herndon, VA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I had initially applied to NSCH right through their website, and got a rejection letter in 2 weeks. Next week, an external recruiter called me and told me that he wants to forward my resume to NSCH, but he wants to see more hands-on experiences. So, I forwarded him my "technical" resume which goes into a lot more detail. I got a call back in 2 hours from the recruiter asking me to go for the interview the very next day

    The first interview was 2 hours long. First I met the EA, who is the hiring manager. She explained to me their technology stack, their products and what they are trying to do . Then she opened up the floor for me to talk about my experience. In between, she would pepper me with questions about how I handled a particular challenge, and how I communicated with the people outside the development team. She was prepared with a list of points that she wanted to go over, and I thought she would be just going down the list, but she didn't. She didn't block the flow of the conversation. More or less the interview with the EA was conversational, and we were trying to understand each other's needs.

    Next, I met 2 of the team leads whom I would be mentoring. The TLs were more or less interested in knowing about how I did some of the things I did in the resume. I started going into it, and ultimately, it kind of turned out to be like a small class, which I thought wasn;t bad considering that I am interviewing for an architect position

    I was called in for an interview in the next business day to meet with 2 of the directors. Again, the style of the interview was conversational, with me talking about my experience, and they peppering in questions about how I solved problems. The types of questions were more oriented towards managerial problems.

    All in all, it was a positive experience. Everyone I met is intelligent and courteous. They let you speak, and pepper in intelligent questions during your spiel

    Interview Questions

    • All of them wanted to know how I motivate developers to move to technology. which was kind of weird to me because my experience has been that developers always want to try the next thing   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They will not negotiate on salary, and they said upfront that they will not negotiate on salary. I negotiated on vacation time, and they were pretty cool about it. I thought their offer was fair, and I'm not a big negotiator

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Student Clearinghouse (Herndon, VA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    After applying online I received a phone call and went through a phone interview. All of the questions were basic and the HR rep was very nice. After passing the phone interview I went into the office for an in person interview. I took a test to show my analytic skills which was followed by an in person interview. All of the questions were situational, and how one would handle certain confrontations.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at National Student Clearinghouse (Herndon, VA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    When there was a real HR department the interviews were tough as they really focused on bringing in the right people to improve the culture. Now I am sure it is laughable.
