Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Thales (Irvine, CA) in June 2015.

Interview

I sat down with the supervisor and the person I talked with at the career fair. The interview questions mostly quizzed on general CS knowledge, specific courses taken at university, my preferences for development languages and workplace environment, and how I would go about solving specific engineering problems. The interviewers were friendly and accommodating and the questions asked were reasonable to test knowledge without being "gotcha" questions.

Interview Questions

  • Using shell commands, how would you find a person's name from a database and store that in a text file?   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Thales (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    interviewed with many people in the office and as well as people in remote office.
    asked technical questions for C++ and general programming knowledge. They also asked how fast I can learn. Waited a few weeks and HR emailed me that I am not selected. Was a good interview process though.

    Interview Questions

    • ALL QUESTIONS were most difficult and unexpected. They are quite not sure about how to prepare interview questions they will be same if you are experienced junior or intermediate. They want everyone to know all stuff in depth. IF you successfully answer one question another question in depth of that will be ready until you give up. 50% questions will be out of requirements. not sure what they want out of candidate but they want candidate to know everything.   1 Answer
