    Software Engineer (Collector Team) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Watertown, MA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at athenahealth (Watertown, MA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Phone screen, Phone technical interview over Hackerrank, then on-site interview with 2 technical interviews (1.5 hours where you work through a coding problem with them on your laptop -- not whiteboard coding). Aside from that, there's a lunch with a senior staff member, and a more behavioral type interview where they ask you about stuff on your resume.

    Really smooth and streamlined process, best of all the companies I interviewed with! They were very accommodating of my job search timing and were flexible with extra time to decide on their offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at athenahealth.

    Interview

    1 phone screening from recruiter and then a phone screening from the hiring manager. At that point they asked I come in to the office and there were 4 different people interviewing me for 30 minute segments. Much of the interview was describing the athena culture, describing the office, and making sure I understood what they really needed from a Corporate Support analyst within the office.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at athenahealth (Watertown, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    2 days after an HR phone screen, I was invited to onsite interviews. I had 4 back-to-back half-hour interviews with 1-2 people for each interview, plus a quick chat with an HR representative. Since I met with so many people, I was worried that I would have to give the same answers over and over again, but for the most part different people asked different questions. The team members I met with were very friendly and the interviews felt more like personal chats, I rarely felt like I was being grilled. Most of the interview questions were behavioral questions. The week after my interview, the HR rep who did my phone screen called me and said that I got positive feedback in my interviews, but the team decided they wanted to find an internal candidate for the job. However, the HR rep said that since I got positive feedback, I could contact her if there were other jobs at athena that I was interested in and she would contact the appropriate HR representative directly on my behalf. I did this soon after this conversation and she followed through, which I appreciated.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at athenahealth (Watertown, MA).

    Interview

    I first spoke to an associate at a campus recruiting fair, and then we had arranged for a phone interview. After the phone interview, I was invited to an on-site super day. The final round of interviews consisted of a short presentation about the specific group, and then I had 4 30-minute interviews with various members of the team. The questions mostly focused on my past experiences and recalling specific conflict resolution situations.

    Interview

    1st round was with HR. It was a 15 minute behavior interview over skype. After that round I was emailed an excel project to complete and had to prepare a presentation. Second/final round was an on-campus. The visit was 3 hours and included a tour of the facility, project presentation, and interview with 3 employees (associate, senior associate, and manager). Overall the experience was very positive and everyone that I met was very nice and seemed to genuinely love their job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at athenahealth (Atlanta, GA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The whole process took about 6 weeks. There were a total of 3 phases of interview. The first was a phone call from the recruiter asking questions about my qualifications. The second was a Skype interview with the hiring manager to work on a data puzzle. The last phase was a face to face interview for 3 hours with the manager and three other team members. That was the best part. Got to meet the team and see the environment. The interview itself was very informal and lay back. My advice is be prepared and listen to the advice or tips provided by the recruiter. "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." - Benjamin Franklin

    Interview

    I was passed over for a position but the HR rep kept in touch with me because he said I was a great fit for the company, he just wanted to find a job that fit. A week after my last email with the HR rep, a new HR rep contacted me regarding an interview (on a Thursday). I responded, thanking him for the opportunity and asking for more information on the job. He did not respond until Tuesday (5 DAYS LATER) stating that he emailed the wrong person! He was unapologetic, chalking it up to a technological error. It was embarrassing and he showed no remorse. Terrible, terrible HR rep.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at athenahealth in July 2016.

    Interview

    HR Screen, Phone Interview with hiring manager, then 5 interviews on-site and a presentation.

    I liked the attempt at seeming like a cool culture. The building was great, everyone brings their dogs to work. That said, the culture is actually toxic. It seems really competitive. Everyone, though nice, seemed intense. Someone mentioned you have to be vocal about wanting to get promoted, which is surprising for a company that pretends to be a cool and collaborative start-up. I ended up not getting the job because I mentioned I wanted to further my education and they needed someone who would be there for several years. It makes sense as they don't provide any support for further education.
