    Software Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sparks, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation (Sparks, NV) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I talked to a recruiter at a job fair, and about a month later I got a call asking to set up an interview time. I was brought in on a Monday from 8:00am-1:00pm and met with a Senior Software Engineer, other Software Engineers, and upper level management (I didn't expect to meet with people that high up on the chain of command, but they seemed genuiniely interested in what I was interested in, had studied, etc.).

    I generally just talked with each person I met with about my employement history, what I learned from those positions, projects I had worked on at school, what I am interested in, etc. There were no questions like "how do you detect a cycle in a linked list" etc. I assume because my resume and GPA spoke for itself.

    After the interview, I was offered a position about two weeks later and started a couple weeks after that.

    Interview Questions

    • An interviewer asked about the Fast Fourier Transform, but not as an interview question, he was just excited that I knew what it was and could talk about it. He asked how I would address a particular problem with the FFT, which was easy to answer.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    As a fresh-out-of-college employee there was not much negotiation to be done.

    Production Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation.

    Interview

    Easy. Does not require the 5 years experience they demand for these types of positions. On the day of the interview they were not prepared and the Human Resources Department did not seem to know I was scheduled in. Entering for the first time to an unprepared staff makes you wonder..

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sparks, NV
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation (Sparks, NV) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The first interview consisted of a phone interview lasting a little under an hour. They asked the details of my resume, asked what kind of extra expierence I may have had, and asked me to detail a project that I had mentioned in my resume as much as possible. It seemed they were trying to test the waters to make sure I wasn't making it up but it was expected. The second interview was more like an introduction. I was led around the building, had flattering questions asked of me, nothing too in depth and there was no coding test, something that made me feel like finally my education and expierience can speak for itself. After this it was a number of weeks before I was working for them.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to diagram a specific function in a code I wrote, something that I was proud of making. They didn't require me to write down the code, just explain the logic. It surprised me that for a software engineering position I wasn't being overly and stupidly tested.   Answer Question
