    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at RightScale (Ann Arbor, MI) in March 2018.

    Interview

    wasn't actually sure about the entire interview process as the recruiter didnt tell me until I noticed she said she was gonna set me up with the CTO. Looking from the beginning to that point, it was an initial hackerrank, recruiter call, 2 calls with engineering higher ups, recruiter call, tech interview with writing code over the internet and a few trivia questions of which some were def not CS fundamentals, and two final calls with engineering higher ups the last one being the CTO. For the two final calls, they ask random trivia tech questions, so need to be prepared via your typical cracking the coding interview book. I was a little taken a back by the two final calls as I had questions on topics I had rarely ever got asked before, OOP design patterns and an OS design question. Usually for design questions, you more often than not get asked how would you approach this question with regards to making classes, not how would you build this system. I wish I had taken the OS and distributed systems electives we had in college. It's a shame that the CTO was asking if I had distributed systems experience as I assumed the role I was applying to was a general software role. In retrospect, upon getting some trivia questions that were outside of what companies would call CS fundamentals during the coding interview, I should've taken that as a hint that I wasn't a good fit. Was really hoping despite that though I could still try to move onto the next interview cause of how great rightscale seems. regardless though, I enjoyed meeting everyone and still believe RightScale is a great place to work.
