    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sapient (Boston, MA) in January 2007.

    Interview

    Campus recruitment is suppose to start with an on campus presentation. The year I was interviewed, the presentation was canceled. The initially screened/selected candidates were invited for a 1:1 interview which was more of behavioral and fit interview.
    The next step of the hiring process is an online skill based test which last for 2 hours and one can schedule and take it anytime within the week.
    If selected past the previous 2 rounds, you are invited for a day long interview process which starts with a meet and greet over cocktails in the evening and the following morning two to three 1:1 interviews and a group based discussion and presentation.
    The hiring decision is usually made within a week following the last round.

    Associate Technology L2 Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sapient (Arlington, VA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Process took about 2 weeks but would've been less if not for the holidays. I posted my resume on a job board and got a call and email from a Sapient recruiter. I emailed back and their recruiter called to pre-screen me for about half an hour. I was then scheduled for a technical interview which turned out ok, not great or bad either IMO.
    The final step was an in-person interview which lasted 3 hours. One hour of meeting with a manager to determine if you're a personality fit with the culture. Another hour by yourself to problem solve a technical case study in a room full of whiteboards. After the case study, one hour for you to present your case solution to a few people as if they were actual clients. They ask questions about the way you tried to solve the case study and lastly sit with you to ask questions about your work experience and from your resume.

    Everyone seemed nice and pleasant. The home office was in a fancy high-rise and was very convenient to Metro access. The work environment is very open. No cubes or offices, just open spaces with small partitions. Lots of young, energetic people. The recruiter was very pleasant and professional. He didn't skip a beat, kept me informed on dates/times/info.
    They were looking to hire me in as an Associate Technology L2. As promised, I heard back a few days after the in-person interview. They were looking for someone with more experience and the ability to coach more junior members. I was told they'd keep me in mind for other junior roles which came up.
