    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnston, IA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DuPont Pioneer (Johnston, IA).

    Interview

    I interviewed with a group of five people for a developer position. Instead of reviewing my extensive portfolio we did a white board session (where I had to hand write code, without a computer, from scratch, and no notes). It wasn't too bad at first until we started doing more complex stuff and I'm just really used to using an editor like Eclipse.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to hand write code that I told them was not my strong suit, but that I would be more than capable of doing with the library readily available.   Answer Question
