    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.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at O.C. Tanner (Salt Lake City, UT) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, received an email from a recruiter asking to setup a time for a phone interview with two other PdMs; call scheduled and when the time came, only 1 of the PdMs was on the call. We spoke for approximately 30 minutes and at the end he said he wanted to bring me in for a face to face, I say great, when/how will this be setup? He told me the same recruiter would contact me. No one has contacted me, no system email, nothing to-date. I'm disappointed at this experience especially at a company that prides itself on employee appreciation would not inform potential candidates that I wouldn't be a good fit while we were on the phone or send me a rejection email.

    Client Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at O.C. Tanner (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    The interview for the most part was actually a pretty good interview. However, I was called back for a follow-up interview and when they offered me the position I had a quite sexist and inappropriate comment. The lady who offered me the job felt it necessary to tell me that OC Tanner is a no cleavage work-place. This was completely unprovoked. I had not asked about the dress-code at all. Mind you - I am busty - but was wearing a full sleeve button up collared shirt. Nothing was exposed. I should have known at that moment the kind of treatment I would receive at that company for the next 8 years.

    Interview Questions

    • If I was aware that the company was a non-cleavage work place.   1 Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    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.

    The interview process for this position was short. Although the interview provided extensive background of the company and the expectations of the department, it lacked the understanding of valuable skills and qualifications for the role.
