Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Lexington, MA) in January 2015.

Interview

very laborious process involving multiple interviews, if you are a referral, you stand a better chance. the interviewer was switched in the last minute for my phone interview and they seem to be not prepared. not sure if it was a rare occurrence, but I got called in for in-person

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Waltham, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke with an in-house recruiter. We had the standard conversation about my background and what the company is doing and what they are looking for. The recruiter stated that they do heavy object orientation and specifically asked me how comfortable I was doing OOP, which I am very confident in my knowledge.

    I was asked to submit a coding sample from a vendor they use. The problem is a timed test with a business problem to solve. Given their stated desire for strong OOP, I wrote several data classes and abstract services, which covered various areas of functionality that the business problem requires to solve. The submission is validated for correctness by their vendor and it worked perfectly.

    Their evaluation of my answer was that it was 'too large'. Apparently, they are not as interested in OOP as they might claim, or there is a disconnect is what one person says vs. another, or perhaps out of shear laziness they don't want to evaluate a solution that is more SOLID (and longer).

    My advice to you if you happen to stumble into their process, is to write a substandard piece of code that cannot have its individual pieces easily unit tested, dependency injected, or separates out concerns because that appears to be what they want.
