    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at True Automation (Plano, TX) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Interview process was, quite frankly, a joke. It was way too easy. I could have had absolutely no real background in software development and would have gotten hired.

    I got this interview through a staffing agency. There was no phone interview, I went straight to an in-person interview at True Automation's Plano office. One person at a time came to interview me. I spoke with about 3-4 people. Mostly they evaluated my personality. There was no technical test to work on, I did a few whiteboard problems and that was it.

    They did not have a real interview plan. They structured their interview dynamically based on each candidate. The position I applied for was for C# .NET, but because I had a C++ background and mentioned that in the interview, the interview from that point forward contained nothing but C++ questions. They didn't even test my knowledge of C# ... lol.

    The negative about the interview being so simple is that they could hire completely unqualified candidates (which they did).

    Interview Questions

    • Sorry, I don't remember the questions... however they were all either about C++ or personality traits.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    My offer was non-negotiable because I had gone through a staffing agency. I recommend avoiding staffing agencies. If you go to them directly you will be in a better position to negotiate your income, you might even nail a full time position instead of being contract if that is what you want.
