    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bose.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly standard.
    - Started with HR call & details
    - Quickly moved to call with the hiring mgr & his interview
    - Mgr was fairly happy with my candidature and also was ok with certain skill levels I did not have but could improve on.
    - Coding & scenario round, fairly standard, everything seemed to go alright
    - Was kept on the wait list while they went search for the "perfect candidate" (dropped out as got a different offer)

    Interview Questions

    • Design food order app.
      (Fairly standard qn for OO programming / design skills. Multiple answers available online. If you know OO design you can come up with a decent one, talking through the details.)

Company Updates

  • Long before we made headsets for NFL coaches on the sidelines, we made headsets for our troops on the front lines. Watch the full story: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vI1VI

    Front Lines

    Long before Bose made headsets for the NFL, we made headsets for the military - where clear communication and noise cancellation is even more important. See how we've taken the technology from the front lines to the sidelines.
