    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BD (Limerick, Co. Limerick) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with a recruitment agency.
    Online assessment: logic, mathematical, personality
    Onsite interview with HR.
    Onsite interview with management.
    Conference call with management.

    The interview consisted mostly of C# and JavaScript questions. Fairly standard questions that you would get from a Google search of those topics.

    I was not offered a job due to experience. Company was very good at communicating with me throughout the process and also gave me feedback after I was unsuccessful.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions in C# were around different structures, stacks, queues, memory, threads, processes, multi-threading, async, the managed heap   Answer Question
