    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orc Group (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    First interview with manager and team lead. Mostly generalt talk about the position and some tech talk. Second interview with team lead and engineer was technical. Last two interviews with CTO and then HR.

    Interview Questions

    • First interview: General standard stuff.

      Second: General programming and Java specific question. Provided some code snippets where one should point out the error or make improvements. Solve a task at home that was received in forehand and present and talk about it in the interview. Task was basically: Create an echo server and client communicating via tcp, with production quality.

      CTO: General stuff again. Mostly the CTO talking about the company and asking funny questions like "When is a product complete", for which there is of course no correct answer.

      HR: Formality to get to know the last details before an offer is extended.

      Company has changed a lot since this. Do not expect the same process.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did the initial bid. They lowered it a little bit, we then met in the middle. Very little resistance. Could probably have gotten more.

    Presales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Orc Group (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was scouted by a recruiter on Linked In, thus, the introduction and connection swiftly opened doors for an interview.

    This was a group interview. Where I originally explained it would be a regular first interview, it turned out to be a very intense thorough discussion on all aspects of the role and responsibilities. Beyond the causal discussion regarding my background and skill-sets & the Orc's details of their firm and position, I was tasked to immediately give a presentation in English and Mandarin to demonstration both my language and presentation capabilities, I was verbally tested upon my knowledge skills and a distinct to my soft-skills

    Next, I was inquired with my previous work experience where I gave examples, depth of my technical knowledge and equity derivatives understanding.

    They distinctively noted they appreciate an individual whose standing includes Western and Asian mindset with fluent Chinese skills, plus, they are looking for someone with strong soft-skills, skills not regularly taught from a text book.

    I believe interviews at Orc will vary dependent on the department and individual interviewers. Please take into the consideration, the cultural background and work environment of Orc for preparation.
