I interviewed at Workday

This was pre-pandemic. I had a recruiter call, followed by the hiring manager call. I didn't think it was technical. After than, I went onsite and did 4 interviews back to back. The results came after a few days.

Interview Questions
  • Since it's app dev, the interview was very easy. There wasn't really any LC style of questions, but more on class diagrams/relationships.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Workday in May 2021

Interview

The recruiter got in touch, went over the interview process. There was to be a total of 5 interviews, the first 2 would be kind of a screening interview. 2 1-1 interviews, 1 technical interview which went over UML diagrams, 1 behavioral interview which was star questions. I failed one of the two and didn't get a third. interview. One piece of advice I would give would be to pay attention during the technical interview because he gave me some tips and I completely didn't realize it til after.

Interview Questions
  • How would you fix this UML diagram?

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Workday (Vancouver, BC) in Jul 2020

Interview

A simple HR cold call which is a mini interview. They said another recruiter will follow up with booking the next interview within the next couple of days. They ended up ghosting and rejecting me on the workday portal. Complete waste of time, avoid this company!

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Workday

Interview

2, one behavioral and on technical. Had an on campus technical and a phone call behavioral with the manager who hired me. Took a couple weeks to hear back after the behavioral but the technical went by quickly.

Interview Questions
  • Was asked to draw a UML diagram simulating a movie theatre. Asked about myself, project I am working on outside of school. Typical behavioral. I highly suggest reading Cracking the Code for their behavioral part because those were the questions I go asked.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Workday (Dublin, Dublin) in Oct 2018

Interview

Because of their propritary language the interview was not to technical. Mostly talked about past projects and OOP concepts. It was mainly just a relaxed chat with the person who then became my manager.

Interview Questions
  • What are four basic principles of Object Oriented Programming?

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Workday (Davis, CA) in Oct 2018

Interview

There were two interviewers who gave me a flawed UML diagram, and they asked me to add features to the diagram and take out flaws from it. When I overheard people talk about their interviews afterwards, they had problems where they needed to construct the diagram from scratch, or they just had simple algorithmic questions like how to reverse the contents of an array.

Interview Questions
  • The UML diagram was an OO approach of modeling a movie theater so that various aspects of a movie theater such as ticket sales for a given movie or auditorium could easily be found.

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Workday (Dublin, Dublin)

Interview

The processes had 3 steps, the first was a screening interview, a technical interview and after that would be at the company. First Step: - a manager calls me and asked some basic questions about OOP, like the differences between overriding and overloading, the principal topics of OOP and after that, he explained about the company. This step took 30min. Second Step: I needed to draw a class diagram to explain how to build a baking account, and the interviewers asked me some questions about my decisions while I was drawing. He said to draw 3 requirements. This step took 1h. Third Step: I don't know because I didn't pass this step.

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Workday

Interview

Interview was relatively easy. There were three rounds - one phone interview, one UML interview(screen shared), and one onsite interview. Overall, interviewers were nice; and HR was friendly and supportive.

Interview Questions
  • Basic concepts of OOP was asked - inheritance, polymorphism etc.. Design patterns and UML modelling related questions were also there. For second round, a system's architecture was to be demonstrated in UML through an online tool(like lucidchart, gliffy). For onsite interview, questions about previous experience and previous work.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Workday (Irvine, CA) in Feb 2018

Interview

I was told to review UML diagrams and Object Oriented Questions. I ended up having to build a full on Class Diagram, and was a little put off by that. Wasn't expecting to have to do something like that. I thought it would be just some general questions. Make sure you can build one, if you look at this position!
