    Software Developer - Rotational Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Black Duck Software.

    Interview

    After applying, I got a reply by email asking when's a good time for a phone interview, we scheduled it a few days away.

    Spoke to a recruiter who asked about past internship experience, if I knew what Black Duck did, and about the rotational roles I would be taking. Didn't ask any technical questions but asked in depth about what projects I had worked on. Very polite and friendly and easy to talk to. Said they'd get back to me.

    The same day, got an email asking me to schedule an in-person interview, and saying that a programming exercise would be sent my way. I did not receive the exercise that day. The next morning, I emailed about the exercise (as I would need it for the next day) and got no reply. I made a few more attempts to contact and was told it would be sent. I finally received it at 11:30 the night before the interview. As it was an early interview, I was rusty with Java, and I would take 1:20 hrs to get there, I didn't get a chance to start it without staying up.

    The next day, interviewed with 4 people. One HR person, then one person from each department of the rotational program. They were all friendly, encouraging and easy to talk to. They didn't make any large demands and were happy to give me more information about the role and responsibilities and what I needed to know. The interview with their software engineer, which needed the exercise, was cut short as I had nothing to talk about.
