    Embedded Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oceaneering International in August 2015.


    One on one interview presenting product or system you designed. Bring in printed documentation describing the system and prepare to discuss it. Documentation that I provided was barely glanced at, interview did not follow format that was presented in interview. However I pivoted well and aced all the questions. Interviewer then asked about salary requirements. When I told him my *current* salary he whistled and said, "No way do we bring in software engineers that high!" All in all it was a waste of time. Clearly they were looking for a junior developer but pitched the job as senior position. A cursory scan of my resume would have shown that I was a candidate for a senior position with 20 years of experience. Going on a month later I have not heard back from them.
