I interviewed at Vanguard

Interview

Applied online, got a phone screen. Behavioral and technical questions, but they weren't horribly difficult. Advanced to a super day which is virtual because of the pandemic. Good process overall.

I applied online. I interviewed at Vanguard (New York, NY) in Jun 2021

Interview

Applied for a job, but contacted by recruiter to interview with Head of Cloud for different role. Video interview with general background and questions. Seemed ok, but not my best interview. Received terse form-type email stating they're not interested in moving forward. No follow up or personal email, which I found quite rude. FYI - their cloud technology and frameworks sound very antiquated.

Interview

3 steps interview process. First, you will get a link to HackerRank assessment with 3 algorithm problems (easy-medium) and a few theory questions. I was waiting for the response after the first step for 2 weeks and finally decided to reach out to a recruiter on LinkedIn. That helped a lot, and we scheduled a call as the next step of the interview process. Just regular questions about background, experience, etc. In a few days, I received an email with an invitation to the last round which consists of two main parts: behavioral and technical. Nice interviewers. Need to be ready to answer a lot of theory questions.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a peer? Three main strengths and three weaknesses. Why Vanguard and what you can bring to the company? OOP, functional paradigm, its pros and cons. Polymorphism. IoC, Normalization in SQL, Exceptions, Error Handling, Multithreading, CI/CD, DevOps. Algorithm: given two strings, permutations of each other or not. How would you create a tool to define if a person is ready to retire.
