    Finance Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rocket Software (Waltham, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Overall the process was handled very unprofessional. I got a phone call from HR at 7:30pm to discuss job opportunity and then would set up interview next day. The worst part is they do not get back to you after the interview. I followed up with HR and hiring manager and got an email back saying " we would get back to you in the next day or so"..... And after that nothing. It has been 3 months! Just be honest with your candidate! We know you are interviewing many candidates at the same time and wanted to keep everyone on the hook. We are interviewing many companies at the same time too so we understand. But please don't lie and be professional. We are bigger than you thought and can handle a rejection email. I would much prefer a " we are learning toward another candidate " rather than a email " we will get back to you later" but never does. I already landed on another job for two months and I am glad I did not work there. If this is the attitude they treat their customers/vendor/employees then I don't think it is a health environment I want to be.

    Interview

    Recruiter screen
    Engineer screen with only behavorial questions
    Take home project
    In person review of take home project

    The recruiter was the best I've worked with. Very fast and accomodating.
    But the engineers...smh

    I went into the office for the in person review with a dev and the senior dev. Neither one of them even knew what the project rubric was. They asked me what it was....WTF really?

    One of them didn't even know that you can deploy to Github pages and told me that my project was wrong because I hadn't configured it to deploy to some other service.

    Glad I dodged this bullet. I'm very happy where I'm at now!

    Web Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Rocket Software in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was a phone group interview with the Web Development team at Rocket Software. They had basic questions about my resume, like what I did for work, asked about past projects, etc. The interview was supposed to be 30 minutes long but ended up turning into an hour long conversation which I thoroughly enjoyed. The interview was not technical at all, it seemed like they wanted to see if I would fit in at Rocket and if I knew what I was talking about.

    Overall, the interview process was fantastic, I really liked the fact that the interview was not technical - it made me feel that I was valued more as a person rather than the skills that I have. In addition, I am not implying that they do not look for technical skills at all, I have a large amount of experience with Web Development and I feel that through the questions they asked and the conversation that we had they were able to determine that I had the right skills for the job.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rocket Software (Waltham, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview with the HR manager that lasted around thirty minutes. A few days later I had a "technical interview" that was just a quick phone interview in which three engineers asked me about my project experience and other questions related to my technical background and studies. A week or so later I received an offer which I accepted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Rocket Software (Denver, CO) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Met with members of the Dev team, then some a senior product leader.
    The Dev team was nice but didn't ask about any technologies I used, about modeling, mvps, or trends.

    Senior leadership asked me if I had questions... asked no questions.

    Just google "product manger interview questions", they asked the exact same questions.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rocket Software in April 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted my application online. Received an email several weeks later to set up a phone interview. Phone interview took quite a few emails on my part to finally get set up (coordinator seemed a bit unorganized). Interview was strictly behavioral and about my background/experience, fairly easy. No technical questions asked.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rocket Software (Waltham, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Completely based on culture fit. Two managers were sent down to talk to me, both were friendly but one was practical and the other theoretical. Interesting experience, didn't ask any questions about CS.
