Software Engineer I Interview

Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV (US)
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Bally Technologies (Las Vegas, NV (US)) in March 2014.

Interview

Had two phone interviews and then two face to face interviews. They were very brief when I first received the first call back. I was asked a lot of OOP basic and advanced programming questions over the phone and then had more personality questions in the face to face interview. Different departments interview differently though so don't expect the interview process to all be the same, because it's usually not. They seemed very disorganized.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Bally Technologies (Las Vegas, NV (US)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    In house interview was first. Answered two questions, both pretty simple. You meet with the principal engineer and the lead for which team you are applying for. Then a take home code test. Very interesting code test. I spent roughly a week on it, but one could finish it within a day or so. They will provide an email containing some usable libraries and some references. They don't give you a time line on how long it should be finished, but they don't expect you to take a month

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bally Technologies in April 2017.

    Interview

    The company held 4 round process. First round was programming (code in whichever language you comfortable in ) , offline. The paper was divided into two sections each containing four coding questions , select one from each to attempt , and think of all scenarios possible.

    next was GD round: my topic was , how IT has/ can help in increasing the tourism of a city.

    The next round (only till where i succeeded) was technical interview round . It started off after a small break , which gave me some time to lose my some confidence as we stared talking on what possible questions could be asked. Now as enter the interview room ,1:1 interview, and went on for 40 minutes .Bad experience , interviewer was not attentive at all or kinda sleepy during process . Kept surfing the net and searching for something the whole time which was so disturbing . I think , by now, they had already made up their minds to hire only Mtech students from our college, none of btech students ended up getting hired(including me ).
