    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at S&C Electric.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview, very relaxed. It took about 45 minutes I believe, but the interview was done in about 35 minutes and the last 10 minutes was me asking my interviewer questions. It was relatively easy, but it was also my first interview so I wasn't as prepared as I could have been.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at S&C Electric.

    Interview

    The whole interview process took 3 weeks. Initially, the recruiter contacted me via email to set up a technical interview. Technical Interview was for around 40 minutes. After the technical interview, I was invited for an on-site interview. On-site interview was for around 4 hours. There were 3 technical interviews of 1 hour each and 1 hour hr interview. After the on-site interview, I was contacted by the hr and hr told me that they were interested in me. I was even asked to submit some documents. A week later when I received no response, I emailed them. HR said they decided not to select me.
    I think it was very unprofessional of them to first tell me that they were interested and they not select me. Plus I spent more than $200 in travelling which I won't get back.

    AVOID applying here and save your time plus money.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at S&C Electric.

    Interview

    Skype interview started with some standard behavioral questions, and then dove into questions about OOP principles and data structures, and then finished off with some brain teasers/logic puzzles. The OOP and data structure questions were fairly straightforward. The brain teasers were as usual the most difficult part, and being able to articulate your thought process is key. Overall, it is what you expect in an interview, and if you've had exposure to data structures, algorithms, and are comfortable with OOP, it should go well.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe the principles of OOP (abstraction, polymorphism, etc.), and be able to give examples. Know how to efficiently manipulate/sort lists.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Set up a skype interview within about a week of application. Interviewed with both the software manager and engineer, asking technical questions about programming. Few behavioral questions as well, such as how you operate under a team. Overall it was not entirely out of the ordinary, although interviewers seemed rude at times.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at S&C Electric (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was on Skype with video call. Asked most of core java, hibernate, multithreading related question. She was keep asking questions even If I say that I have a basic knowledge on it. For example she asked, what is many to many mapping in hibernate? when I explained that I have experience on iBatis which is also a ORM framework however I have very basic knowledge on Hibernate. Then she asked how to do in iBatis way. I answered but she was not happy with my answer. she has no idea how IBatis works but she was assuming it would be similar to hibernate. I explain the difference since both ORM designed differently. During the interview I figure out that it would not be a good fit for me. At the end she didn't even ask , "do you have any question about position or company?" It was rude.
