    Software Developer I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Matawan, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at iCIMS (Matawan, NJ) in February 2017.


    The interview process consisted of 3 interview 'events' and a codility.com test. After applying, I was contacted for a preliminary phone interview that gauged a rough outline of my abilities and interest in the position. I was then emailed a link to a codility.com timed coding test, comprised of three segments progressively more difficult. The third interview was by phone using a collaborative working environment and was based on coding skills. What was intended to be the final interview was onsite and consisted of three technical sessions and a behavioral session. I had to come in one more time for the behavioral interview as the original interviewer had been switched out at last minute due to inclement weather. All of the interviewers were friendly and engaging. I was a very comfortable, and the entire process took place over a few weeks.
