Finally, you come into the onsite interview, which includes three people, all for techniques, including data structure, java domain knowledge, design patterns.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Trustwave (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online with an employee/friend referral. Communication was pretty slow and unprofessional. Phone screen, then homework assignment, then in-person interview. All the steps went really well, I didn't stumble over any questions. In fact they had to make up harder ones and it turned into a fun conversation. Anyway, I was supposed to hear back with an offer in a day or two. I followed up 10 days later and heard back 14 days later that the engineering team thought highly of me but that there wasn't a fit at this time. I asked for a call with HR later, and they confirmed that I passed the interviews just fine but that they didn't have a fitting role for me. What a giant waste of my time and effort.

    Interview Questions

    • Primarily java 101, turn your homework into a DB, and design patterns.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Trustwave (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process started with an initial phone screen interview where I was asked about my experience and was given a description bout the next steps that included: another phone screen interview over the phone, a technical interview over the phone and a week project to finish. If all passed, an on-site interview would take place to discuss the project overall and how will I fit in the company.

    The second phone screen interview did not take place since the HR Manager forgot about it. After scheduling it for the second time, we talked for less then 3 minutes as all he wanted to know if I have any additional questions.

    The phone technical interview did not take place on time as the engineer was busy with another issue on hand. He called me back over an hour later. After a brief introduction and a detail description about the position, he asked me 3 technical questions which I have answered fully.

    After the phone technical interview , I have not received any further communication from the company. The whole process took 4 weeks and was handled very unprofessionally.

    • What type of design patterns do you know? Can you describe one or two of them?   1 Answer
