    PHP Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at OpticsPlanet (Northbrook, IL).

    Interview

    It was a pleasant experience. I was 7 rounds of interview but the team was extremely warm and friendly. I absolutely loved the experience. The first round was a telephonic interview from the recruiter. It was behavioral and extremely comforting. The second round was by the technical head wherein I was asked questions on Object oriented programming, a few SQL queries and my experience in the industry. The third round was a coding assessment wherein a PHP file is sent and a design pattern needs to be implemented in a couple of hours. The last round is a personal interview by 4 team members 1:1. The process is slightly hectic but extremely interesting. It worked for me as I was prepared to be interviewed for about 4 hours.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at OpticsPlanet (Northbrook, IL) in March 2011.

    Interview

    WARNING...ABUSIVE TACTICS! I passed their skills tests. I spent 5 hours on one day being interviewed with only a 10min bathroom break, no lunch, and had to give a presentation. After, the president demanded yet another test and was rude, yet tried to negotiate salary with me.

    Interview Questions

    • Estimate how many people get married in the United States every week.   2 Answers
    • Some questions about design patterns...very high-end theoretical questions regarding object oriented programming. About Ph.D. level   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I told the recruiter not to bother negotiating. I wasn't interested. The president was inconsiderate, thoughtless, and flat out rude. He told me he wanted to know how "desperate" I was, flicked a pile of other resumes at me, and told me "I wasn't worth it". Incredibly unprofessional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at OpticsPlanet (Northbrook, IL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    It was horrible! I started with taking 2 online tests and then waited to hear that I passed that and I would come in for more testing the next week. Went in for that, it took 3 hours...it was math and Excel. I was told the hiring manager had to look at the results and they'd get back to me. The next week I heard I got an interview with the hiring manager and another associate. This involved more testing and another 3 hours wasted. After waiting for 30 minutes after my final interview I was told that I would have to come back to meet with the President next week....keep in mind this position was an entry level position, they kept reminding me of that... So, I meet with the President and it was a nightmare. For 2 hours he made me feel like crap the entire time, none of my answers were good enough for him and of course there were more tests involved. When he asked me why I wasn't ready for his questions I told him that I didn't have the online experience to answer those questions and was told this was an entry level position. After telling me I lacked common sense and there would be no way he'd hire me....he asked me how much I was looking for? When I told him what I was currently making and started to explain in detail what I wanted...he cut me off and laughed and told me there was no way. I have never left an interview wanting to cry, it was just a horrible experience! Then they had the nerve to call me to let me know I was still being considered for another position within the company? Seriously? No thank you!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OpticsPlanet (Northbrook, IL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and the reached me a few days later and we scheduled a 30 minute window for the phone interview. The phone interview itself seemed rushed for time as it only went for roughly 10 minutes. The standard interview questions were asked such as what your strengths and weaknesses are. Unfortunately, even with my eBay store experience, it was not good enough as I got not one, but two rejection notices.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OpticsPlanet.

    Interview

    Took roughly 3 weeks from submission of application to a job offer. After a general phone screen, I interviewed with 2 employees (one of which turned out to be my boss). The questions were generic, and then there were example questions in which you were asked to design/create/respond to an example situation .... ex: X vendor would like a marketing plan created - how would you take them to market ... The interview process was challenging, but nothing overwhelming.
