    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Slice in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call from hr for a phone screen. While the interview went very well, the interviewer was pretty patronizing but seemed satisfied with my interview. I then received a ridiculous assignment which I had to do which was not at all relevant to my position neither was it in my resume/skillsets (the assignment was related to front end while this was a backend infrastructure position). On telling the hiring manager this, he still insisted I do the assignment. So after spending a couple of days learning these technologies which I mostly wont use in the job, I received a rather rude rejection email as I did not complete some part which was not even mentioned in the description. Terrible experience and an utter waste of my time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Slice in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the recruiter who found my profile on linkedin. After initial chat, he set up a call with the hiring manager. The call went well. I was asked mostly about stuffs in my resume and also a couple of technical questions on list duplicates and their time complexity. Then I was asked to complete a programming assignment and submit the same within a week. The assignment wasn't difficult but needed some thinking to handle concurrency issues. After I submitted, I didn't hear back from them. I emailed them about 4/5 times but to no avail. Not even a rejection email. This shows how unprofessional their whole process is. Please don't waste somebody's time if you are not bothered to even reply to emails.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Slice in May 2016.

    Interview

    Extremely quick interview process, I was very happy with how quickly I would hear back and would move forward in the hiring process. I had one phone call with my hiring manager and then another phone call with the team. The second call was supposed to be a Skype call, but we had technical difficulties that they were happy to work around. Everyone was very friendly and truly seemed interested in what I had to say. The first interview was broad, we went over my resume and we discussed the projects I would be working on to see if it was relevant to my interests/experience. The second interview was technical(about an hour long), where they asked several questions to gauge my knowledge in, DevOps, data structures, etc.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Slice (San Mateo, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me about the position. After an initial call with the recruiter, I had a Skype interview with the hiring manager and two other team members. Then, I was flown out to the San Mateo office for in person interviews (one full day). I received an offer within about a week, followed by a reference check. In all, the process was really positive. Things moved along quickly, communication was great, and everyone was so friendly and positive.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the interview questions were typical, such as walking through my background and experience, asking about working with clients, dealing with issues or problems, and what I would suggest to make the app or products better.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Slice (San Mateo, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process began with a brief interview with the recruiter. I then had a telephone call with the hiring manager and two rounds of in-person interviews. The process was very efficient. Everyone I met had a genuine interest in learning more about me and had prepared thoughtful questions. As much effort was taken to assess whether I was the right cultural fit (values) as there was in evaluating my skills. That spoke volumes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Slice (San Mateo, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Since I interviewed for an intern position, I had several rounds of phone interviews and a skype interview. I talked to the whole product team during the course of my interview process and it gave a really great sense of what I can expect once I become a part of the team. The first phone interview round involved talking to the head of Product. They walked through my resume and asked questions around my background along with some product-centric questions testing my product sense. Next rounds involved talking to different PMs on the team. They asked similar questions testing my knowledge on the product and how I would go about making decisions in different scenarios. Finally, there was a SQL test I was asked to take over Skype just to test my skills (which makes sense because we are building data-based products). But, all along, I was given ample opportunity to learn about the company and to get a very clear idea about how I would fit into the broader scheme of things which allowed to hit the ground running once I joined.
