    Graduate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Galway
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Arm (Galway) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through University portal. The first round was a 30 minutes telephonic interview with a principal engineer. After three weeks I got a mail to come for onsite interview with 3 senior engineers. It went for more than 1 hour. I never got the response of the interview. They mentioned reimbursement of travel expense but never received it. HR doesn't respond to any mail.

    Interview Questions

    • During telephonic interview he asked many questions about the company, basic Java questions, Unit testing, open source contributions etc,
      During onsite interview the panel was of 3 senior engineers. Basic questions on Java, System architecture, Testing, Design pattern, Agile. The questions were simple but too many.
      Draw architecture for automate traffic light system.   Answer Question
