    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Unwired Planet (Redwood City, CA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I applied through a staffing agency. The first round consisted on phone interview.

    After this, they invited me for an on-site interview. I was interviewed by two managers for the first hour. It was nothing but going through my resume and previous experience. I guess they did not like me then. When I was with two other managers in the second hour, one of the managers was called off (May be by one of the two people from the first hour).

    That was it.

    First thing is, they had my resume and background before, so not sure what they were smoking when they called me for an on-site if they did not like my background.

    Second, for a company whose stock is a penny stock at $2.00, they seem to have lot of attitude.

    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Unwired Planet (Redwood City, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Friendly and polite HR and hiring managers who took the time to describe the position and the skills needed for the role. After first phone interviews I was asked to fly over for an on-site interview with all of the senior leaders of the particular group. Flight was paid for and hotel/car rental was supposed to be paid for but weren't. I ended up with that part of the bill and they didn't even bother checking. The building and surrounding facilities are nice but the overall location is not so good. People were polite and on time for the interviews. Since my flight back wasn't until late that day, I was given a room to stay and do some work for the rest of the day after my last interview. No particular interview format, the usual questions but nothing very structured. The bad: they never got back to me, even to say "no thanks, you don't meet the requirements of the position". So my entire perception of that being a decent company went down the drain.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Unwired Planet (Redwood City, CA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Openwave's standard procedure is to do several rounds of interviews: an HR phone screening, hiring manager phone screening, hiring manager 1:1, team member 1:1s, cross-functional peer 1:1s and superior 1:1 (optional depending on position level). In my particular case both phone screenings were skipped because I was acquianted with the hiring manager at a previous company. The other interviews were relatively casual. Review of resume versus job requirements and general Q & A. I was not asked any behavioral oriented questions. Everyone I interviewed with was professional, pleasant and seemed genuinely happy to be working for the company.
