    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at O.C. Tanner (Salt Lake City, UT) in August 2016.

    There was a phone interview, followed by an in person interview where I paired with the other candidate. We worked on refactoring some java code, and then we talked with the manager and other team members about how we felt we did and how the other person did.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at O.C. Tanner (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty easy. There was a healthy mix of culture-fit and technology questions, and nothing too complex was asked. Was asked to solve 3 questions with code on the IDE of your choice. Interviewers were friendly and helpful. They gave a tour of the building and demo'd some of the hardware machines they use, which (I believe) ends up utilizing the software the teams write, directly or indirectly.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave a domain model for a type of request and I was asked to implemented that request model in a pojo. Once that was done, they changed the model in a minor way, and wanted to see how I would go about modifying the code- what decisions I'd make, etc. Also asked a few questions about the cost/benefits to having multiple constructors.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Even though every person I spoke with was very friendly, upon asking many questions during the interview process, I came to find that their technology stack was quite limited compared to things I had worked on in the past. I personally felt like this would be taking a step backwards in terms of my career.

    Interview

    First had a phone interview with a recruiter that is outsourced by the company. In person interview with hiring manager was good. He has been with the company for 27 years and it was his first job out of college. Hiring manager very friendly and informative about the position. He wanted to make sure I had all of my questions answered thoroughly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at O.C. Tanner (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    I advanced through four rounds of interviews over 60 day period. The interviews were behavioral with skill assessment portion. After completing the final interview round the hiring manager informed me I would be contacted next week regarding outcome. After two follow-up emails and phone call I received zero response until an automated email was sent 45 days after I was not offered job. Ironic for a company touting it's stake as a leader in company culture that they operate in such a way.
