Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SAS Institute in March 2016.

Interview

Applied online, took 6 months to hear anything back.

Received an email from a woman in HR at SAS requesting to set up a 1 hour phone interview with two software engineers from a team at SAS.

Scheduled the interview, received a call the day of the interview and spoke to the manager of the team I would be working on and one of the lead software engineers on that team. Both asked me questions from things on my resume as well as some light technical and language specific questions.

Interview Questions

  • What is the runtime of searching through a linked list?
    What is the runtime if that list is now doubly linked?
    What is polymorphism?

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SAS Institute (Pune (India)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    One telephonic round ( major of rejection happen here). Check job description twice before applying. If you happen to someone at RnD centre contact him and ask for current interview trend.

    The second round in face to face with the manager and some senior developers. They don't like people with job hopping mentality.

    If you are good at technology then be prepared for HR round on the same day.

    Interview Questions

    • Every team has its own pattern of interview questions. Most of the time they people look for OOP basic and concept of core java. None of the team works extensively on JEE. However, every team uses Spring framework (core, web, remoting) to its depth.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at SAS Institute (Beijing, Beijing (China)) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I got the interview through employee referral. SAS contacts me the first minute they received my resume. The interview process consists of three phases, all with 1:1 form. First round interview is held with team manager, mainly about techniques, along with a test on algorithm, coding skills and problem-solving abilities. Second round interview is with HR hiring manager. He will ask questions about the reason you left your former employer, why you want to join SAS, what your career plans, etc, basically open questions. The final round is talking with general manager.
