    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me on linkedin. I was asked to take part in a phone interview. It was roughly an hour. It involved two very easy questions involving string manipulation. Passed with no issues.

    Roughly an hour after the interview I had received an email to take part in a on-site interview. I choose not to follow through with this interview due to interests in a different company.

    Interview Questions

    • String manipulation. Analysis of what I had just wrote.   Answer Question

    Full Stack Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Novetta (Tampa, FL) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Apply, contacted by HR, phone technical screen, onsite.

    Be warned though they tried pulling a bait and switch. Position I applied for was in a specific city. After getting invited down to onsite in Southern Pines, NC did they ask me to confirm if I wanted to move to NC. Which is a thousand miles away from the job posting I applied for and at no point did the job posting reflect "relocation required".

    Basically a scam.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Novetta (Columbia, MD) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen that lasted 5 minutes and I was quickly scheduled for an initial interview. Once completed, a second was scheduled with the senior leadership. The interview was more of a conversation. The CEO shared her vision for the company which made it easy for me to answer questions in a manner that aligned with that vision and assess how I fit in to their plans.
