    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vestmark (Boston, MA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Two screening calls. The first more of a past experience / cultural fit call. The second was technical screening. Basic algorithm questions and deeper java questions on multi-threading and hashing. Onsite interview with 4 people. It starts with a coding exercise using their notebook with Eclipse IDE. Very short only 45 minutes exercise involving reading values from a file and making simple processing of the read values. After that three meetings with engineers and management.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Vestmark (Boston, MA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening with HR and technical guys, coding assignment on codility.com, face-to-face in office (a co-working location where you'd be sharing an openspace size of a decent living room with 12 colleagues).

    Absolutely no communication afterwards in 2 weeks despite a promise to communicate a decision even if negative ASAP. Some say, attitude towards applicants mirrors what happens with employees, so no wonder this company has so many negative reviews here.

    Interview

    Got an email from the recruiter asking for my availability for a phone interview. When I responded asking about the length of the interview, so I could find a day where I had enough time, I never heard back.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Vestmark (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted very promptly. The job didn't indicate any salary or compensation, company reviews are rock bottom. Had a call with recruiter and was told resume shall be presented to the manager. After I followed up comes a response of no offer. Very unprofessional! My advice to PMs, Don't waste your time because if your are you must be asking below par salary otherwise the role per description and the environment per current and past employees is bleak at best!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Vestmark (Wakefield, MA).

    Interview

    1)phone interview with hiring manager - general java questions
    2) onsite coding test + interview with 5 people
    All the interviews went good for me, hiring manager seemed very interested in hiring me but I never heard back. To update candidate OR to reply to follow up emails will be of no harm to company I suggest.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wakefield, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vestmark (Wakefield, MA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied on-line, heard from HR very quickly. Had telephone screen with HR, and within a few days telephone interview with manager. Came in for in person interview for 3+ hours. And never heard from them again. No follow up, no response to my email to close the loop on it. There is a lack of professional courtesy in having someone in your office for 3 hours of questions and then not telling them either way, you are not interested in moving forward.

    Interview Questions

    • One person asked me more questions about the first job on my resume which was from 20 years ago.... Very strange line of questioning, seemed to be trying to figure out how old I was... Asked me what version of Oracle was the system I was working on from 20 years ago... Asked a lot of questions about the systems I worked on, and seemed rather disapproving of the answers. The other interviewees were much more reasonable in their questioning and seemed more professional.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Vestmark (Wakefield, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Horrible interview process!! 3 hours wasted that I will never get back. Hiring manager was totally unprofessional and is need of some serious training on how to interview. They try to lowball you into taking a cheaper position with the same duties of a senior one. What a joke!! Place reeks of desperation! Good Luck Vestmark you won't last long being cheap on IT.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Vestmark (Wakefield, MA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR, 3 onsite interviews with hiring manager, help desk manager, and their boss. Interviews were set up consecutively and were 45 minutes or so each. Very clear that they were seeking a good personality fit as well as skills and background. No real hardball questions, shared a lot of information on atmosphere, culture, travel requirements.

    Interview Questions

    • Fairly typical. "What's your biggest flaw?" "Talk about your industry experience." "Talk about a bad training experience and how you handled it."   Answer Question
