    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Porto, Oporto (Portugal)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CRITICAL Software (Porto, Oporto (Portugal)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, and after a few weeks was called to an interview.
    On the personal note, I got one of those classic strong gut feeling that they didn't like me, even before we shaked hands and talked.

    So, the interview was quite straighforward. There were two people present, an HR person (via skype) and a very young team leader (I think).
    Standard questions: why this and why that.
    Several technical questions related with java. Well, all I can say is that for a junior position, there were not only numerous questions but they were also quite advanced. How can a junior have extensive experience with scrum? Did they forgot I was applying for a junior and not a senior position?

    Anyways, after a week or so, their final decision came.
