Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Verifone (San Jose, CA) in August 2016.

Interview

Very technical . Was asked to demonstrate practices and theories relating to the job I was applying for. Met with three different people during the process and they all seemed distracted and not happy with the company, almost as if they were trying to tell me something but not really saying . This was a key factor in why I declined the offer/

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Verifone (Atlanta, GA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter working with Verifone.
    After a few rounds of questions from the interviewer, HR contacted me for a quick phone screen.
    A follow-up phone interview was scheduled with the direct manager.
    After the phone interview, I was flown to the location of the manager for a 1:1.
    An offer was received via the recruiter shortly thereafter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Verifone (Rocklin, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was low pressure, one interviewer at a time. I met with engineers and a second level manager. The hiring manager was away on travel. He was supposed to reschedule a time to talk with me, but never did. I called the HR recruiter, who assured me there would be a follow up, but that never happened. This was very unprofessional. It does not take much effort to send an email or make a phone call to close the loop. I have heard this company has problems, and now I have experienced that first hand. I don't recommend considering this company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Verifone (San Diego, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Stay away from this place! These people are unethical and shady! They brought me in for an interview without any intention of hiring me. They used me as a free consultant to try to help them debug their embedded system, wasted my whole day that I took off from my current job, and ate up 6 hours of my time -- for nothing! Their entire staff was a bunch of amateurs who were unprofessional. Their program manager was proud of being "non-technical". When I got to the end of the interview, they said "We don't think this position will be interesting enough for you". Don't waste your time on these clowns! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

    Interview Questions

    • What techniques would you recommend for trying to debug and embedded system for which there is no connection? What tools do you think are the best for debugging with? What do you think are some of the best current technologies for encryption?   Answer Question

I cleared that round then i waited over there more than 4 hrs for next F2F round. So there was another 2 F2F technical round after clearing written test. So i after waiting 4hrs i they call me for F2F 1st round. She asked from core java question from topic multithreading,collection, static,final modifier,overloading,overriding concepts. I answered all her core java questions, then she one asked question from database, i was not able to give answer for that question,so she told i am done from my side,you can wait outside, then only i got clue that she rejected me. They use to take rarally any candidate, they rejected most of the candidate either in 1st F2F technical round or in second F2F technical round. These guys are looking for rocket science person who know each and every thing from front end to back end, it was wate of my time there, this company dont provide parking facility also if you came for interview with your own vehicle, i wount go again for this company interview.
