    Software Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    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.

    Product Manager, Denver Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Web Development Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    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.

    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Information Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Rocket Software.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy, telephone, then in person. I interviewed with the team leader, and then with selected employees/team members at a peer level. I think that the interview might have been available on a Webex, but I did not use the video (and was not prompted to use it). Very friendly group of people who are positively pro-Rocket Software.

    Interview Questions

    • More of a culture fit interview than a skills interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The recruiter said "we will not negotiate"

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rocket Software (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    Phone screen followed by in-person interview with HR rep and SVP. Right away I knew they had already selected someone else and I was filling a quota based on being told they wanted to finalize hiring someone weeks before - not an impressive thing to say.

    Explained in detail what they do, but did not ask pertinent questions regarding sales philosophy and attack plans - the two interviewers could not have been less interested in a dialogue.

    Interview Questions

    • Very easy and disconnected questions on sales - neither person seemed interested in the answers or cared to engage in discussion - never even sent a reply email to me even though I professionally thanked them in-person and via email.   Answer Question
