    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Trimble in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process took a few weeks, first had to have a one-on-one call with the hiring manager and then another senior member of the development staff. Once all that had taken place I was brought in for a series of interviews with various members of the development team which took roughly half a day.

    I have over 25 years of development experience and I really wish that the interview process had better options than trying to test my syntax knowledge. I use IDEs to develop and code as I assume the other members of the team utilize, this would mean that if I were to make a syntax error than the IDE would help correct that. I have been building applications and systems for a long time now and I understand how to develop - however I don't think I'm prepared to be quizzed on it at this level.

    I knew going in this would be the case but I was still hoping they would throw a computer my way and let me show them how I could build something. Wipe boards and pseudo code is great but it reinforced my concern for how their development was performed. I really enjoyed the walk-through and considered the development challenge to be extremely exciting - I would still recommend it to anyone I know who is looking for a job but I feel like they wasted my time, I think the interview could have been stopped a lot sooner if my grasp of syntax was not up to their standards and not have me waste most of a day that I had taken off. Ehh, I was just looking at options and opportunities.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions tended to focus on a grasp of how good of your knowledge was of the syntax of the languages that were being used.   1 Answer
