    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Malvern, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vanguard (Malvern, PA) in March 2020.

    Interview

    After you apply you take a hacker rank test. If you pass they will schedule a phone interview. its all behavioral. then you get moved into onsite, but because of the coronavirus I had an online interview so my experience may differ from here. first we entered a call with everyone interviewing to go over the process, and look over a case study that we will have to explain how to implement later. then you enter a call with your first interviewer. for me this was all behavioral. Next, is the technical interview. I had no actual technical questions.(ex: what is oop.) for me it was explaining in technical detail the projects I had on my resume, the case study, and my internship experience. this was on a Friday and I got the job offer the Monday after.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Vanguard (Charlotte, NC) in May 2020.

    Interview

    Contacted by Vanguard recruiter via LinkedIn. Phone call with the recruiter who set up an initial phone interview with a Manager. Proceeded to virtual interviews (offices closed due to Covid-19). The virtual interview was conducted over 3 hours with several managers and senior managers. STAR format and case study. See previous posts- pretty accurate going back to 2015. They are primarily looking for someone to make warm calls all day long.

    Entry Level Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vanguard.

    Interview

    This was pre-pandemic but
    1 - 3 coding questions sent via email
    2 - phone interview where they ask behavioral questions
    3 - onsite interview. They pay for your hotel, lasts from around 8 AM - 2PM . Asked technical, behavioral and given powerpoints on what to expect with the company.

    However, they claimed you get reimbursed for traveling expenses and that it would take 4-6 weeks. It's been 3 months and I still haven't been reimbursed. Tried contacting, lady said she'd give reimbursement the following Monday, she never did and now she never responds. False promises early makes me believe this is a scam company.
