    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Vicarious Visions (Burlington, VT) in May 2016.

    I was sent a coding test which I completed and returned to them. They reviewed the coding test to decide whether to interview me.

    A skype interview was then set up where I talked with 2 of the programmers at Vicarious Visions. They asked me several questions and we went over my answers on the programming test.

    • We went over my answers to the coding test, discussing how I arrived at my answers. They then gave me a few coding problems and watched as I solved them.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vicarious Visions in May 2018.

    Interview

    I applied and heard back within a week to setup an interview within the following week. Communication up to that point was pleasant and the phone interview itself was nice and welcoming.

    However, I have to give a neutral overall experience because, while the interview itself was positive, I never heard back again, even after sending a follow-up email to the recruiter. I found this rather disappointing as every other place I've ever interviewed with at least responded, even if they decided not to move forward with you.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical production questions (time you made a mistake, how'd you prepare for a certain situation, etc.)   Answer Question
