    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ViaSat (Tempe, AZ) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and talked to a recruiter a week later. She set up a conference call with 2 product owners and 1 scrum master. It was a 30 min. call with 2 PO's asking questions, the scrum master was in his car and dropped off. He never had a chance to ask a question. The main interviewer was a complete jerk, kept interrupting me, was condescending, and did not understand Scrum is a subset of Agile methodologies. No way would I want to work with this guy! Interview was average if you could decipher what they we asking with the lack of their experience.

    Interview Questions

    • What does a scrum master mean to you?
      What is your interaction to the product owner?
      What makes you want to come to work in the morning?
      How do you influence others?

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ViaSat (Carlsbad, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    A straightforward interview process. Contacted via e-mail to schedule initial phone interview with Technical Recruiter. Initial Phone Interview was 45 minutes discussing the position and speaking to the strengths on my resume in detail. Recruiter recommended me for follow-up and instead of the requisite Technical Phone Interview, fast-tracked me direct to an on-site the following week. Checked-in at the lobby and spent 4.5 hours in a conference room with 6 individual interviewers. Some spoke about position, culture, and my resume others were more technical testing software data structures and algorithms on the whiteboard. Overall great experience.
