    Software Engineer I Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon Applied Signal Technology (Sunnyvale, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online in September. Got called out of the blue for a phone interview but I managed to pass the first round. It was 30 minutes, no coding. There were standard behavioral questions, talked about my resume and some technical questions such as regarding Big O, linux commands, object-oriented programming. She was really nice and understood if I didn't remember some details.

    On site interview was a few weeks later in Sunnyvale, CA. 3 interviews around 45 minutes each + 1 casual lunch conversation. 2 coding questions in total. Talked about resume, behavioral questions (when did you realize you wanted to be a software engineer, describe a time you worked in a group), and technical questions about my top coding languages, OOP, linux. It was very catered to my resume so they didn't really ask me things I wouldn't know. It was a good experience and the people were nice. I received an offer about a week later but I haven't decided yet.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Raytheon Applied Signal Technology (Sunnyvale, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by an external recruiter for this position. Then received an email from an internal recruiter saying to apply at a link provided in the email. I applied then had a phone interview set up. The phone interview questions weren't terribly difficult: "Have you used the STL?" "Describe the STL" "Have you used any of the STL algorithms?" "Describe how you decide which STL container to use?" "What is the difference between a map and a hash map?" "What are the required methods in C++?" "Describe the difference between C and C++" "Have you done multi threaded programming before?" "What is the difference between a process and a thread?"

    Within a couple of hours of the phone interview the Raytheon recruiter contacted me and said they wanted to bring me in for an on site interview. Please let her know my availability for the next few weeks, and fill out this job application (another one). A few days later I got an email from their HR rep saying my interview was in 2 weeks, bring my driver's license and my passport to verify citizenship.

    I arrived 10 minutes early for my interview. The building wasn't terrible difficult to find. The campus looked pretty nice, the buildings looked modern. The first interviewer was fairly nice, but asked a ton of questions. "Describe inheritance" "What is polymorphism?" "What design patterns have you used?" "What is singleton?" "Have you used the factory design pattern?" "What is the syntax to make a pure virtual function?" "Explain the difference between stack and heap memory?" "Explain the difference between malloc and new vs free and delete" "Describe an interface in java" "In C++ what is difference between a reference and a pointer?" "What about a const reference" "Tell me about copy constructors" "What is overloading?" "What is overriding?" "What is the difference between a struct and a class?" "What development cycles have you used?" "Ever use Agile?" "What do you like to do code-wise?" On paper implement a swap of two integer pointers. Now implement a method that reverses a linked list.

    Then the second interviewer came in, and it was like they were playing good interviewer vs bad interviwer. It was like he was interogating me. Everything I said he was like "tell me about that." Eventually he asked interview questions. "What is a heap?" "What is the difference between a char * and a string?" "What are the differences between C++ and Java?" "If Merriam Webster came to you and said 'implement our product', how would you do it?" "On the whiteboard write a code to sum the leaves of a tree" "write code to find the lowest number not in a group of numbers (very confusing question)" "In a unix directory structure search every text file and return me only the phone numbers...searching every file, which may or may not contain a phone number at all" "What do you like to do...codewise?" "Any questions for me?" (thank god that interview was over).

    Then the next interviewer walks in and introduces herself as the hiring manager. This is where I got a bad feeling. She barely shook my hand and wouldn't really even look at me. She just sat down facing the door, which means she pretty much had her back to me, and said "I don't have any questions, we had a lot of applicants we are interviewing for this position, we will try to let you know within the next two weeks, leave your badge at the front desk" ...yeah I knew at that point I had wasted a lot of time filling out job applications for one job.
