    Upgrade Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vital Images (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Got a phone interview with them, and talked about the company. Then I went to their office in Minneapolis and had a great interview. Did not really feel like an interview, it was very laid back and I just talked about myself and what I did. I interviewed with 3 people in total. 2 for my technical background and one lady that was the manager for customer success support.

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Eden Prairie, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vital Images (Eden Prairie, MN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    * Phone with HR.
    * Phone with direct manager.
    * In-person with HR and direct manager, as well as team members.

    HR interview went well, they were gauging the type of person I am, past history, those sorts of things. The phone interview with the direct manager was a bit more diverse technically (as my role weights in somewhat heavily on technical skill) but still seemed more interested to know the type of person I am, my interests, and what drives me.

    The in-person interview with HR was pleasant, we re-capped some of the things we discussed. They also asked some questions regarding handling hypothetical scenarios, and describing obstacles overcome, projects, etc. The in-person interview with the direct manager which took place on the same day was great. We discussed some of the directions the company is going in regards to it's development processes, and what my (to-be) team would be collaboratively progressing to achieve. We also talked some more off-topic personal things, such as video games and beer. Overall the entire hiring process was quite relaxed and open: two things that are very important to building trust and a well-meshing team in my opinion.

    If you are a person who prefers the typical corporate environment, where everyone keeps their emotions and feelings like a walled-garden, to do your job and leave at the end of the day: Vital might not be for you. If you like to be part of a team who cares, and a team who accomplishes great things together, all the while having fun with outings and such - hop on board!

    Software Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vital Images (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    The standard HR then technical interview. The guy I interviewed with has a penchant for those types of "brain teaser" interview questions. I tend to hate those question because I think it says nothing about your skill set. The question was about if you had 2 glass balls, and a 100 story building, determine the floor where the glass ball will break.

    If you're the type that likes these kind of brain teasers, this might be your place. If you're like me and think that while it might be interesting to think about, it really says nothing about what you're good at, then you really should avoid Vital.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vital Images (Minnetonka, MN) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for a software developer position and several months later I received an invitation to do an interview. After a standard interview with a hr person, there was a technical phone screen on C++. The technical interview was being done by the VP of engineering, which seemed a bit awkward and left somewhat of a small company impression to me.

    The phone screen itself consisted of pretty standard C++ questions on topics like operator overloading and polymorphism which the interviewer obviously read from a list. The interviewer seemed happy with textbook definitions of C++ concepts but when I departed from the standard textbook definition and explained a concept with an example, he hesitated and did not seem to understand the answer. I guess he was just reading questions with their answers from a list and if my response matched the answer he had on his list, he was happy. Otherwise, he just didn't know.

    I would rate the interview being of average difficulty. A few days later I received a reply that I had not passed the interview. The same week I had a much more difficult C++ interview at another company which I did pass. So I am not sure whether it were the interviewer's C++ skills or my C++ skills that caused me not to pass.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Vital Images in April 2016.

    Interview

    Very drawn out over many months with lots of changes of interview dates. No interview feedback was given despite such a long process and three interviews. I don't feel they value potential employees time and are quite unstructured.

    Interview Questions

    • Not structured questions that were part of the job description more off the cuff type questions.   Answer Question
