    Performance Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NaviNet (Boston, MA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was a typical engineering style interview. A set of data and problem was given a few days in advance of the interview. It was asked to interpret the data and answer the questions during the interview. It appeared that they wanted to hear how you got to the solution that you did. The correctness was not nearly as important as being able to communicate how you got to the answer.

    Interview Questions

    • Given two six sided dice that produced a unique color based on the sum, what would you test for to ensure that it was working correctly.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NaviNet (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Interviewed out of college via a career fair. Interview was a pretty standard audition type. They gave me a simple data structure (like you'd get for an intro to data structures assignment) and gave me an hour by myself to draw out on a whiteboard the general interface and implementation for how I would design a few features and how they would interact. Two engineers than came back and asked my questions about my design decisions. I basically just had to justify why I made the decisions I did, and we discussed in a non-interrogative way what were some other ways it could have been implemented, and they asked me hypothetically how I might change things to satisfy a different set of requirements.

    I would basically just suggest getting comfortable with object oriented design and be able to explain why you design something the way you did. They didn't ask me any syntactic or nitty gritty "even if I didn't know that I could just google it" questions, which was a nice change of pace and I felt was a plus (some places think its important to be know obscure shell commands and the like off the top of your head).

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing exceptional. Was asked to design a shopping cart system that you might find on a e-commerce web portal and show how I would implement a few basic methods and structure the data.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at NaviNet (Boston, MA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward. Got the interview through a recruiter and was able to land a phone interview which was then followed up by an in person interview a few days later. Interview went well. I met with the manager and we discussd the role and what they were looking for and then I was asked to design a shopping cart system. After designing the system two developers came in and we discussed the architecture and implementing new methods into the design

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing too difficult I knew the shopping cart system problem ahead of time as it was given to me by the recruiter and company beforehand to prepare.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Was offered other positions I was more interested in.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NaviNet (Cambridge, MA) in July 2007.

    Interview

    I had a technical phone screen first, during which I was asked pretty basic technical questions that covered broad range of things (from Transact SQL to object oriented design). They immediately told me that it went well and that HR person will be in touch. After that they emailed me "technical audition" material, which I was supposed to prepare for in advance. I then came in and presented the solution to 2 senior developers on a white board. They asked me a lot of questions, most of them were open-ended design questions and very few syntaxical ones. They made me an offer within a week. This company is taking the hiring process very seriously and is looking for certain types of people that are smart, generic, dynamic, curious, passionate about what they do, and also can communicate well. You can't really prepare in advance for interviews like that.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NaviNet (Boston, MA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position through my university job referral. I was contacted by the HR after one day of the referral for setting up an in-person interview, and it was scheduled one week later. When on the day of interview, I was at first brought by the hiring manager into a conference room to have a programming skills evaluation on a sheet of paper for 30 minutes, then he directly began face-to-face conversation with me, which was also 30 minutes. For the evaluation, the problems were not too hard. For the conversation, he asked me about programming questions at the majority of time, including the one I mentioned in the "Interview Questions" section which I thought was challenging, and at the rest of the time in the conversation he asked me some basic behavioral questions like "what do you know about our company", "why do you want this job", "tell me about your project experience", and so on. After the conversation, I was brought to take a tour of their office.

    Interview Questions

    • I was new to the healthcare IT space, so trying to answer questions or participate in conversation about what NaviNet does and is going to be doing as a company and for the industry, was something I wished I had better prepared for.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was really excited about the opportunity so I didn't push back, though my boss was very clear about what the track for opportunities for career and momentary progression would look like.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NaviNet (Boston, MA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Getting into Navinet is not easy. There's a phone interview and then a panel with 3 or 4 Principals that will ask tough questions. Always and everything in a nice and kind environment. None of the tricky or open questions that might make you feel uncomfortable. They will just really ask you about the experience in your resume.

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask harder and harder questions as the interview progresses.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I liked the company so I accepted less than what I wanted.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NaviNet.

    Interview

    It started off bad while I was waiting in the front lobby when suddenly a guy hands the receptionist a stack of envelopes with the instructions to mail them out ... he mentions that they are the severance pay checks. Guess they just had a LAY OFF!. During the interview I soon became aware that this place is a sweat shop as the hiring manager was strongly focused on how quick I can spin up code. In retrospect I knew after the first 15 minutes that I had wasted my time coming here for an interview. If you go on linkedin and look at the credentials of some of the software engineers, they hardly take the cream of the crop. And yet, I really found them to be rather "arrogant" during the interview process. If I can get this bad feeling during the first 15 minutes of the interview, I then question how it could be possible that they manage to get such good reviews on Glassdoor? I might be wrong, but I've been in this business for quite a long time, so all I have to say, is be careful. If you take a job here you might find that they are extremely demanding and their expectations are through the roof. Since the time I got the interview and until now, I know they've been constantly looking to fill Software engineering positions so I suspect they might be suffering from a high turn over rate and/or simply can't find folks willing to work there. I quickly got a sense that everyone here is in a PANIC MODE! ... in essence no time to even make a bathroom trip. Can you imagine, if that's my take away simply from a job interview, can you only imagine if I took the job!

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions - basically if you want the job just tell them that you can write many lines of code - just as quick as you can snap your fingers! Not looking for a quality code writer, just someone who can crank out code, regardless of whether or not the design was good or bad.   Answer Question
