    .NET Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Homeside Financial (Columbus, OH) in June 2016.


    This was a two part interview for a mid to senior level developer position. There likely would have been an initial phone interview, but I was referred by a recruiter.

    Part 1 -- A face-to-face meeting with the head of the IT department. Mostly a "social" fit, with the conversation mostly around past jobs/experience, a few hypothetical situations and how I would handle them, and some open ended tech questions that don't really have right or wrong answers.

    Mostly a litmus test for:
    - General gauge of experience and past work
    - Ability to talk and walk through thought process
    - Receptive to feedback, comments, and dissenting opinions
    - Soft skills

    Part 2 -- Code kata (off-site) + demo (on-site). A loosely defined code kata that was similar to a project a currently working dev was chipping away at.

    o Win Service (process concurrent tasks)
    o Styled "Portal"
    o Basic CRUD (create, read, update, delete)

    - Asked detailed questions to flush out spec further
    - Roughly a week to complete at leisure
    - 4-8 hours of work for something nice; more if you really wanted to polish it up
    - Speak to code and decisions
    - "What would you have done differently if you'd had more time?" etc

    Definitely prefer this kind of interview to an in-person "Code day" where you really feel the heat.
