    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seagate Technology (Denver, CO) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It was a two part interview process. The first interview was held at my school immediately after our career fair. This interview consisted of basic interview questions and was to gauge personality. The next part was a phone interview with one of their technical managers asking a problem solving question.

    Interview Questions

    • The number of calls in to the internal Helpdesk are very high. Support technicians report that the majority of their calls seem to come from users of the QueeQueg vacation database. Many problems are reported with QueeQueg from logins, browser issues to user education. The application is written in an ancient programming language that no one knows and modification of the program is not possible as we don’t own the source code. Also, we have a long term contract with the owners of the software so replacing it is not an option.   Answer Question
