    Senior Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Phase2 Technology in July 2016.

    Interview

    Overall, I had a great experience in my interview. I did an initial breakfast interview with Michael, VP of Capabilities, a Google hangout with HR and a technical review with a couple of the developers. I finally met again with Michael and Christine, VP of People and was presented with an offer!

    Interview Questions

    • Review specs for a system and build out wireframes and an ER diagram; explain what framework you would use and why.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate because I was happy with the offer, but they were okay with an unpaid vacation I already had planned for October.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Phase2 Technology (Washington, DC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Rigorous but informative. Included multiple rounds and culture fit + technical test. I met with many people and learned a lot about the company and culture. I was asked questions about ability to handle certain situations (situational interview) in addition to aptitude.

    PM Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alexandria, VA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Phase2 Technology (Alexandria, VA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long and drawn out over a period of 3 months.

    Reasons for Declining

    They had my salary expectations in advance, however, after a long interview process over 3 months, they lowballed the offer and did not want to negotiate. This was very suprising especially after such a long investment of time from both sides.

    Web Solutions Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alexandria, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Phase2 Technology (Alexandria, VA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Phase2 for a Web Solutions Analyst position. After a first positive discussion with the HR manager, I progressed to a one-hour telephone interview with a senior analyst. After that interview, I was asked to block out a 2-hour window for back-to-back Skype interviews approximately 2 weeks later. Which I did, however, the Skype portion of the interview failed on their end. Post those two interviews, Phase2 flew me in "to meet the team" two weeks after the last interview session.

    What "meet the team" consisted of was a series of interviews/panels which started with a "Solutions Challenge" where you are instructed to design a web site after a brief question and answer session complete with wireframes. This was a rough session facing a three person panel, with already established ideas about their application development space. I was not informed that there would be a two hour interrogation after walking off the airplane and getting to their office. This was followed by a normal interview session with two new folks, and then a last session with a senior manager. All told, it was about 4.5 hours of non-stop interviewing.

    I was, and still am, very impressed by the people of Phase2 - from their enthusiasm, their clients, and on-going work. I was not impressed by:
     - The unprofessionalism of the "Solutions Challenge"
     - Lack of follow-up even if they weren't interested
     - The amount of time I invested in the process for a no-go decision

    As a senior professional, I am/was taken aback by the last interview scenario. I have interviewed many prospective candidates, and if there was to be any test of any sort, I informed them up front. I was also more interested in talking to past employers/clients about experience and perception rather than trials-by-fire.

    The culture of Phase2 resembles a moderate .dotcom environment - youth, energy, cool working space.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alexandria, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Phase2 Technology (Alexandria, VA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I had a panel interview with the Phase2 management team as well as a phone interview. The team was very accommodating of my schedule and were able to meet with me after hours. The interview was a little tough, but that is expected during any interview to ensure you have the right person for the job.

    Interview Questions

    • How I would handle a difficult situation to ensure getting the best results.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Pleasant, accommodating of an already planned vacation and start date

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Phase2 Technology in February 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewing process was very unusual considering the position. Recruiter emailed me questions one at a time before setting-up a phone screen. The phone screen consisted principally of naming every free beverage they offered, noting their pingpong table and Nerf launchers, and basically how hip they were. As a fresh college grad, that might be appealing to some, but at a management level in one's career, free sodas are not in the least a selling-point.

    It was very clear that they do one kind of work (web projects), they are looking for people who do that exact work, and who want to continue to do that exact type work. Not a place for those looking to expand their career.
