    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SAGE Dining Services (Lutherville, MD) in March 2015.

    Interview

    After applying online, I received a phone call from a manager. We spoke for about 30 minutes about my experience and the company. We setup an in person interview at the headquarters first thing the following week. It was nice because I was still working full time and they accommodated me with an evening meeting time. The interview was mostly me talking about my experience and a brief overview of the company. There was a technical aspect of the interview which was a series of two whiteboard questions. I was offered employment the next day.

    Interview Questions

    • Write a function to find if a number is a multiple of 3 or 5.   1 Answer
    • Based on the discussion about what SAGE does, draw a high level software design of the company on the whiteboard.   Answer Question
