    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sioux Falls, SD
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies (Sioux Falls, SD).

    Interview

    Went from one contractor to SGT and they tried to reduce my salary before offering me a job. Their reason was that I made too much money and I needed to take a haircut in order for them to keep me on the new contract. I nearly walked out the door right there to find a different job. A lot of people took the haircut thinking that was their only way to stay. That is just the way that this company does business.

    Negotiation

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies (Greenbelt, MD) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I had a one on one interview with the hiring manager. The whole process was very informal, so I've enjoyed the interview. Most of the questions focused on the soft skills, such as dealing with changing customer requests, fast pace of work, dealing with ambiguous guidelines, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you do if the customer deals with the risks differently from what you expect? What risks tools you prefer and why? Are you familiar with NASA risk management guidelines? What risk training do you have? Will you be able to change your work schedule to accommodate customer's changing needs?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies (Cambridge, MA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Unprofessional!!!No HR phone screen. Got a call from the company. This guy never introduce himself and start asking technical question in poor English. I couldn’t understand what he was saying. And he hang up the phone without a heads up in the middle of the interview and called me back in 5 minuets. At the end I didn’t even get a chance to ask about the company and the position. It is totally waste of time.
