    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Shadow Financial (Piscataway, NJ) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Met someone on campus at a career fair, they called me up a few days later and invited me in to interview. I came in and they had me meet with 4 people. First was HR, it was a skype call which was pretty strange and I could have done it from home. She asked me typical HR questions, how did you handle? something challenging? how did you work on teams? what do you like and dislike about specific classes? Next I met with a financial guy also on skpye. He asked me more general questions regard project planning and execution. The third guy I met with was in person and much more technical, there were no algorithm or data structure questions more like how did you work on teams and lead others, and explain specifically if I (the interviewer) was on your team how would you tell me what to do? how was it leading a team? how did you split up the work? Lots of specific questions that you should be able to asnwer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Shadow Financial.

    Interview

    I met with members of the Shadow Financial team at a career fair at my college. After following up via email, we set up a phone interview. This was mostly behavioral, where they explained what exactly the company does, and answered some basic questions. We set up an on-site interview for the following week.

    While at the onsite, there were three rounds of people. After sitting in the lobby for 15 minutes, I was called back to a conference room where I spoke with an HR manager over Skype. Our conversation was mostly behavioral once again, and she explained the business process at Shadow. She also informed me that I will be taking a short, 5 question exam at the end.
    Next, I met with one of the architects, where he asked me technical related questions. I had a negative experience with this, as it seemed as though he was trying to belittle my previous experience, not actively listening to what I was saying, and he seemed overall unprepared. My conversation with him lasted about 40 minutes, where he asked me specific technical questions based off of what my resume said. After waiting alone in the conference room for another twenty minutes, finally, I met with the technical manager. My conversation with him was a lighthearted mix of the previous two rounds, but ultimately he was an extremely nice guy about the whole process, and seemed impressed with my experience. The day concluded with the five question exam that was on C++ basics.
