    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at TradeStation (Plantation, FL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    HR phone Interview was positive, personality test online seemed easy yet useless, round table interview. Round table interview was not properly prepared or discussed prior to interview. Showed up early, nobody in IT office area looked happy to be there. Previous person to be employed there for the same position was there for less than two months. They really had no Linux 'team' which is what is needed for their environment. I left knowing three thinngs... A. I didn't get the job which is ok. B. They didn't know what they needed. C. I don't think I would have taken the job had they offered. They really should solicit the Linux community for technical questions at either FLUX, Hack Miami, or other LUGs. They were really unprepared with vague questions.

    • What have you done "from your resume". Speak well, be confident and DO NOT lie.
      The recruiting manager is a highly skilled people person so if you dont know something, be honest. I think the best way to get through is to work on analytical skills

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richardson, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TradeStation (Richardson, TX).

    Interview

    First there is a phone screen. Basic tech questions. Then they bring you to the office for in person.
    Before the in person interview they also have you take a personality quiz and a "how fast can you solve this detailed problem" type challenge.
    For the in person they have you interview separately with two separate groups of developers and then with the director and others at the end. The first group of developers asked several small programming challenges to do on the board, the second group asked very similar programming challenges followed by by the usual random what does SOLID stand ford, what is polymorphism, what is REST type questions. Basically the same interview done twice.
    After the interview the recruiter said they liked me and we're going to discuss and get back to me. Several times the recruiter reiterated that they liked me and would get back to me the next day. But I never heard back from thie recruiter or this company - no feedback whatsoever.

    Not happy with no response after an in person.
