    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Doylestown, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sicom Systems (Doylestown, PA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter found me on Dice and gave me a ring to see how I'd fit the company. This lead to a phone screen with the Senior Technical Architect. The phone conversation was some basic questions about my background, and some discussion about projects on my resume. The phone interview ended with a short class design exercise. About 2 weeks later, the recruiter contacted me again to set up an in person interview. I interviewed at Sicom's location in Doylestown PA where I was accompanied by the same Senior Architect that I had talked to on the phone.

    The interview lasted about 4 hours and was an overall enjoyable experience. I was shown all the different departments within Sicom and where each worked and what they do. While being walked around I was asked general questions about how I thought each part of the process worked.

    The technical part of the interview was a sit down discussion. I was given some time to look over code snippets and then I was asked to walk through what the code did. There was no live coding.

    At the end of the day I sat down with the HR woman who was extremely nice and was asked some basic questions about my personality and how I describe myself, etc.

    I received an offer no more then a week later.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sicom Systems (Doylestown, PA).

    Interview

    I received an initial phone call (about 30 mins - hour) to speak about my background, followed by an in-person interview at their headquarters a couple of weeks later.

    During the in-person interview, I was walked through their POS systems and asked questions along the way about what I expect/how I might implement some of their systems.

    I was given a tour through their headquarters and saw most of the various departments.

    There was a small coding exam where I examined and answered questions about a code sample they provided.

    Most of the interview was spent with a senior architect and a small portion at the end was with an HR rep. Both were very enjoyable and easy to talk to.
