Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Xerox (Rochester, NY) in August 2011.

Interview

Got a couple of email from HR, no phone interview. They flew me in for 2 1-hr interviews with different teams. First interview was with 2 engineering managers mostly asking about behavioral questions. Second interview was mostly the guy talking about what he works on, hardly asked a question.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Xerox (Wilsonville, OR) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The phone interview was fun and easy. It was a one on one interview, with the standard initial interview questions and a few basic technical questions. Really simple engineering concept questions.

    They invited me for an interview day that consisted of 5 one on one interviews each an hour long, plus a lunch break. The one on ones were very challenging, almost completely technical questions except for the last one. All of the interviewers were friendly and helpfull, but definitely demanding. It helped that I prepared ahead of time!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Xerox (Wilsonville, OR) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The Xerox interview process is best described as a marathon. They will ask you questions ranging from soft skills (assessing how you will interact with others) to full on engineering problems. Interviews are one on one and last about 30-60 minutes each. Each interviewer has an area that they are assessing. There was a nice dinner after the interviews. All interactions are professional and fairly congenial. HR was responsive to getting me to and from the interview as well as following up with an offer after the interviews were done.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the part, what does it do, and what can be done to make it better? What are the design flaws?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was some room for negotiation, but only by a few thousand dollars.
