    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PLS Financial Services (Oak Brook, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    There are 5 rounds in the interview process and all of them are technical questions. Phone calls from the recruiter, Skype interview and 3 times 30 minutes interview with some lead developers.

    Interview Questions

    • Because I cannot mentioned the people' names for security reason, I'll call them Mr. Bad, Mr. Good and Mr. Ugly.

      First, I received a phone call from the recruiter, She asked about 10 technical questions from C# and MVC. I answered most of them, then she scheduled me for a Skype interview with Mr. Good.

      During that interview, Mr. Good asked me a bunch of C# and MVC related questions, and I answered most of them. And 2 days later, I received an email from the recruiter inviting me to a face to face interview. According to the schedule, the order of the interview was, I would be meeting with Mr. Ugly, Mr. Good, then Mr. Bad for 30 minutes successively.

      The first person I met was Mr. Bad, because every one else was busy interviewing. That guy looks so mean during the interview that I kept asking myself if he has a problem with me. He asked me a bunch of technical questions, which I answered all of them. Then he asked me to write code on the black board to pull up a table from SQL server and display it to the View on the black board by using Entity Framework Code First. He was the one writing on the blackboard, so my job was to tell him what to do. I started all the process from creating the Models, and to use LINQ to Entity Framework on the Controller, but his time is up. He was very frustrated to see that the time is up. Then he finally smiled saying, he has something to tell the next interviewer before he comes.

      Mr. Good joins the room. His first question was "While validating data, how to verify that an email address already exists in the system so you would display an error message on the screen to avoid duplicate." I started by going to the Model where you going to use some attribute from the System.DataAnnotations, it looks like he was looking for answer on the Front End. When I kept mentioning the attributes from the Model, he told me to forget about them. Then he asked me how I would do that with JQuery. I didn't know the answer. Then he started with the technical questions. I answered all of them. His 30 minutes is up.

      Now Mr. Ugly came in the room. He started with a basic programming on the blackboard, which I did and he agreed with the answer. Now came the technical questions. Mr. Ugly spent most of the time talking and correcting all the answers I gave him no matter if I answered the questions correctly or not. I assumed he was either trying to figure out how I would react if someone tries to correct my mistakes while working. Since he was the last one, he spent a little over 30 minutes talking.   1 Answer
