    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coimbra, Coimbra (Portugal)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Critical Software (Coimbra, Coimbra (Portugal)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied Online and got scheduled to a first large group interview for a full day, this position was actually to a sibling company named ITGROW

    First half of day was mainly psychological tests, similar to IQ tests to test your overall aptitude.
    Second Half was composed of a group activity followed by a simple java development test on an network isolated computer.
    After that you have another day to interview alone, with a technical manager of one of the teams you will be working with.

    Even though I got a proposal to go abroad to a different office than the one applied, this was put on hold /cancelled a few days after accepting, this is the just plain wrong step in the whole process.

    Interview Questions

    • To develop a simple program in Java with file manipulation alongside documenting the whole process.   Answer Question
