    Security Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Markham, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Qualcomm (Markham, ON (Canada)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    2 phone and 4 in person interviews. The in person interviews were focused heavily on generic coding challenges. This was a bit unexpected for me since I am not a new grad. I was expecting the team to ask me more technical questions and focus on what I have been doing since I have already worked on the platform they were working on.

    Interview Questions

    • Generic coding challenges which can be found online. Requiring average knowledge of data structures   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Qualcomm (Bengaluru (India)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    There was a tech phone interview where they asked on the basics of coding and programming. Then there was a full day onsite face to face interview where they had about 5 members from their team where I guess I was to be selected to interviewing me. They first started with the basics of embedded programming and some aptitude questions. Then they moved into testing, building release & deployment of any feature that I had worked on and the questions where based on that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Qualcomm in February 2014.

    Interview

    I hope that a study of very long sentences will arm you with strategies that are almost as diverse as the sentences themselves, such as: starting each clause with the same word, tilting with dependent clauses toward a revelation at the end, padding with parentheticals, showing great latitude toward standard punctuation, rabbit-trailing away from the initial subject, encapsulating an entire life, and lastly, as this sentence is, celebrating the list.
