    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Horsham, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Penn Mutual (Horsham, PA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    A series of alarming events -

    1) First phone round was supposed to be introductory and turned into a technical interview (09/7/2017) for 1-hour.
    2) They told me they liked me and wanted me to come in for a face to face interview but the recruiting company (MISSION STAFF) indicated it had to be the next day (09/08/2017). All of this within less than 24-hrs.
    3) I refused because I needed more time. Mission Staff indicated that it was not a technical interview after speaking with Penn Mutual and urged me to come in. I was told it would be to better understand the people and work environment since I was already screened on the phone.
    4) I arrived for my interview and what was supposed to be 1 hr FACE TO FACE, turned out to be a 2 hr technical interview. I am more than comfortable with taking technical interviews which I am permitted to prepare for (I have one with Amazon and Facebook next month).
    5) I informed the people interviewing me that it was less than 24 hours and I was told that my technical interview had been done on the phone.
    6) Had I known it was a technical interview, I would have asked for the weekend to prepare.

    I was pushed to come to the interview which I was assured would not be technical else I would ask for more time given they wanted me to come in less than 24hrs.

    Poor Communication and deceptive practices at Penn Mutual and Mission Staff. I was very disheartened by their interview process and moreover I was told during the interview that every thing should be on your fingertips without any prep (this was a surprise interview).

    I am a hard working woman who graduated from top tier school and have on site interviews at Amazon and Facebook who provided me weeks to prepare for my interview. If this is any indication how they treat people, you should think twice about applying here.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I got the interview thru a recruiter. After initial phone screening they set up a face to face interview with at least 4 developers. It was a long process, almost 4 hours in a conference room with senior develops who grill you with questions. At the end you will meet the CTO and he will ask you certain questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Penn Mutual (Horsham, PA).

    Interview

    Second interview was cancelled the day of without warning or explanation, with promise of reschedule. Then total radio silence. They seem to really enjoy spinning their wheels and wasting candidates' time, perhaps to gauge the labor market. Rude and unprofessional!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Penn Mutual (Horsham, PA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was about two hours in a half and involved meeting with five employees. I met with the head of the department, a director, a manager, a senior, and the director of HR. Everyone was easy to talk to and the HR director was surprisingly more intense, as far as asking questions, than the head of the tax department.
