Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA

Positive Experience
Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Workday (San Jose, CA) in Jul 2022

Interview

Interview Process was very clean.Proper communications, study materials were provided, One thing I felt while interview was we tend to think of more high level designing, but they ask pure basic questions. Simple UML diagrams is what we need to prepare. Mistake I did was to ask lot of questions and kind of asking them if my model is correct as per their requirement , but it portrayed to them as if I was asking for help. We need to take care of redundancies as we model (as in removing any multiple connections to classes) most importantly be confident whatever design you do.

Master of Arts in Organizational Management, 6 years experience Consulting, 1 year experience as a Consulting Manager. Prior to Consulting also 3 years of a leadership + 5 years non-leadership experience with different company. Total years in workforce = 15.

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Workday in Oct 2021

Interview

Overall smooth, only 2 interviews. The first was technical with all questions surrounding software/class/OOP design, no leetcode style questions. If you have taken a data structures course that should be all you need to succeed. Second was a behavioral with the team manager.

Interview Questions
  • Class OOP organization for boxing. How does matchmaking work? How do you organize a winner sort of data structure and keep past history? Really general data structure questions, no leetcode mediums or anything like that.

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Workday (Vancouver, BC) in Sep 2021

Interview

Initial HR interview, then 4 meetings: 2 one-on-one behavioral interviews with managers, then an OOP panel interview, then a React live coding panel interview. My advice is not to be too creative in the interviews just do literally what is asked (from my feedback). They say they are an equal opportunity employer but I had 9 people interview me and only one was a woman. They use a proprietary 'language' where you code by clicking through drop-down menus. Seems like a bit of a career killer for engineers, probably fine if you hope to just do project management one day.

Interview Questions
  • Behavioural: standard STAR questions, name the VIBE principles and core values. OOP: design a rental car system - be aware of redundancies and use inheritance. React: based on wireframe, design a user input component to populate a table with warning pop-ups for empty fields

Interview

It was very pleasant talking to the recruiter. they are very helpful. But during the first interview, the interviewer said that all the position is filled up so I don't know why would they schedule an interview so I would say that communication is not good.

Interview

Technical interview was done over a 45 minute long video chat, and was generally very conversational. Took place with two engineers, and was based around a modeling exercise through Gliffy. I had to fix a flawed model using object oriented design principles. They tested concepts such as cardinality, inheritance and redundancy.

Interview

Overall 6 rounds: 1st technical: They give you a UML and ask you to improve the design. 2nd behavioral: Easy 3rd -----ONSITE --- 4 rounds - ---- Intro, 2 behavioral, 1 Technical Felt like a total time waste experience. It's all about UML, they don't care about your resume, nor about your previous experiences. I felt like they haven't even checked my resume. (none of the interviewers) They have a predefined set of questions, only those will be asked.

Interview Questions
  • 1. Improve the UML diagram: Boxing match 2. Design UML of Rideshare app

I interviewed at Workday (Dublin, Dublin)

Interview

Phone call OOP Interview Onsite 4 rounds i passed the all technical interviews with very good feedback specially in the architect interview but Overall i didn’t pass to the offer stage as they see me overqualified and looking for leading position however i was asked directly about the seniority level and i answered clearly that i prefer not to lead team. I think this is not the right reason for rejection as i stated that to the recruiter in the feedback call and she said she will definitely help me to get another position as i am overqualified but unfortunately she didn’t answer my emails after that. I can rate the experience as awful and waste of time as i see the company leaving good candidates because a problem in their interviews and the recruiting team.

Interview Questions
  • All Technical Questions are related to OOP modeling and database modeling concepts otherwise is behavioral
