    Web Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wolverine Trading (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    the interview was supposed to be 3 hours. first hour I was asked four logical questions. and let me tell you one of them was hard and was meant to see your ability to think on your feet. I answered all of them correctly, but let me tell you I was wondering if I had applied for a rocket ship design position for NASA. before the interview, I had a technical phone interview where the same person asked me all different kind of technical question to which I had mostly correct answers. then come the fun part, and this position is for 2 years experience only. he handed me a paper, I needed to create an entire MVC application with so many requirements that needed to be done in one hour, what do I do on a daily basis in my current job? I work with MVC applications. quite frankly I thought that was not right. the process was made to be very difficult. and then after that there was going to be another hour of more testing. I said to myself this isn't Microsoft and it isn't Apple nor Google to accept all of this. and I had gotten 4 offers in the past few months alone so I know my worth well. so I decided on the spot that I ain't wasting my time with them, so I cut it short and I said that I didn't want to go on with their ridiculous process. they can hire offshore which is why they make the hiring process very difficult to comprehend. not sure why I graduated with 3.9 GPA, and have 3 years of experience on my hand if I am going to go through tedious testing like this ... I they have no wise judgement system... why should I work with them !!! glad I made that choice of not going forward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wolverine Trading.

    Interview

    Applied online and was scheduled for a phone interview. Was mostly questioned about my background and reasons for pursuing the job. Was asked a question about rolling a die (see other interviewee's reviews). Phone interview lasted a total of about 15 minutes. I may be biased, but it felt as if the interviewer never really had the intention of learning about me as a candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the expected value of rolling a six-sided die? What if you got a second chance to roll, but you had to keep your second roll?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Wolverine Trading.

    Interview

    Was asked about the contents of my resume and then gave me a simple coding problem and 20 minutes to do it. I managed to pass most but not all test cases. I was then given some background about the company and a chance to ask questions. Overall, it was a pretty chill interview and I'm sad I didn't make it further.
