    Easy Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Syncsort (Woodcliff Lake, NJ) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews then a Friday AM in-office interview. Interviewers included managers, architects, department VP, and a couple of coworkers who were working on the type of jobs that you are applying for. They were very nice people, and the interview even included a lunch interview session. Not really a technical interview but it may already change with new management this year.

    • Describe the architecture of the project that you had worked on.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very smooth. They won't pay you like NYC but given their less-demanding work hours should be a good fit for folks who need work-life balance.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Syncsort (Woodcliff Lake, NJ) in January 2009.

    Interview

    An impressive number of interviewers preceded an offer letter. There were 2 phone interviews, one which was highly technical. Then having 6 in-person interviews with at least 3 oral technical quizzes. The process itself wasn't intimidating but the length of it was a surprise. Luckily, their decision came very quickly and an offer letter meeting my expectations was extended.

    It was very useful to have another offer outside Syncsort to be able to assist during negotiations. The offer was upped to meet my expectations.
