    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cambridge Consultants (Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was answered within a couple of days and we scheduled a phone interview for the following week with my now manager. We discussed my university modules, my CV etc and my career goals.
    A few days later I was told to come for a face to face interview. This took a full day, travel and accommodation paid for on the day. HR/Recruitment gave me suggestions for where to stay and kept in contact with me before and after the process.
    I had four interviews in total, one on software methodologies and estimating the value of a market, 1 on C and state machines, 1 on C#/databases/UML and other high level keywords, 1 with HR about career goals and 1 with another employee to see what I was interested in in terms of projects.

    In total it probably took a month from start to finish, but that was only to fit in with my university timetable which I was grateful that they let me schedule around.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given several lines of C code and asked to explain what they meant. As I was not familiar with some of the specifics of C keywords and memory management I didn't do very well.   Answer Question
