    Interview

    For the 1st phone call, no technical questions. firstly, the interviewer made an introduction of the company, then asking some basic questions about yr background, what's yr expectation at the company. it's more like doing a background survey. no technical questions. she also scheduled a second phone call next week. But when I emailed her asking about the details, she said it had been cancelled.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Tessella in August 2015.

    Interview

    First interview was a phone interview. Asked a little about my background and told me about the company. Asked one or two technical questions. They were simple, but I think my background didn't fit what they wanted (Java developers). Couldn't answer my specific questions about the company. Came off as a somewhat pretentious place to work, one that I don't think I would actually enjoy.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tessella (Boston, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back after around a week. I had a phone interview, and was turned down for an onsite interview. I did not think the phone interview went well, as I could not answer some of the technical questions. I felt that as soon as I admitted I could not answer one of the technical questions, I was out of the running.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Tessella (Boston, MA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I am a recent engineering graduate (not in Computer Science) and I submitted an application online. A few days later I received an email about scheduling a phone interview. The person I spoke to was friendly. He did a lot of the talking, and a lot of my answers were yes/no answers to questions like: Would you be willing to travel to client location? He asked three basic programming concept questions. My programming background was essentially just two programming classes but programming is something I really enjoy.

    Interview Questions

    • I'm not sure which part of the interview made them not want to call me back, but if I had to do it again, I would emphasize my programming ability and experience. That is what they really care about.   Answer Question
