    Senior Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cranberry, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Software Specialists (Cranberry, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was a 26 minute tech question with supposedly a hiring manager. At the end, all she said was: "good session". They are maybe in the process of setting up what I call an actual interview as that has not happened as yet. So no I have not accepted anything. Wouldn't you want to know like what the job is and what you might be doing?

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Software Specialists (Bengaluru (India)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Company primarily prefers employee referrals, secondary option is using vendors.
    If you are an experienced candidate, first phone interview/discussion is with Senior VP of the company.
    If the candidate is cleared by Senior VP, he/she needs to go the office (either Bangalore/Coimbatore, based on candidate preference/need) to attempt/clear the aptitude/English test.
    If the candidate clears the test , he/she will be meeting their Director (if hiring for Bangalore) OR Branch head/Manager (if Coimbatore)
    If one is through the second round in Bangalore, next discussion is with a panel of managers & that's the final discussion
    If one is through the second round in Coimbatore, final discussion is with the Director (phone)
    Complete (sourcing to offer/rejection) process takes not more than 2-3 days (max) depending on candidate's availability

    Interview Questions

    • Candidate's ability to convince the managers/director about their interest in job.. even though its a simple question, it gets tricky at times... questions related to recruiting/staffing are very less compared to personality/team fit/attitude related.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    SSI is one of the paymasters in Bangalore/Coimbatore, pays on-par or more than the industry standards. Their commission/incentive structure is very appealing & motivating.. Negotiations are pleasant & employee friendly.. In case if the salary expected does not work for the company, its communicated in the first phase of discussion to avoid any waste of time both for employee/employer
