    4-5 interviews, average of 45 min. each. Mostly with other systems engineers, director of systems engineering, and a follow up with the recruiter.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Base2 Solutions (Bellevue, WA (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with a recruiter, then a coding problem, then a phone screen with a dev lead and then an on site interview. I met with 6 employees who were either Developers or QA professionals.

    We did some white board coding and process questions. They were very concerned about fit, communication skills and development process. They were less concerned about specific languages. The were very concerned about quality.

    They were extremely professional and the process took about 3 weeks.

    Quality Assurance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Base2 Solutions.

    Interview

    Application online and received an email asking to confirm one of several times for an initial phone screen. I confirmed the same day and when that time passed and I followed up tactfully, I got a cold your email was missed without an apology. Maintaining a positive attitude, I rearranged my schedule for an additional date and time and that was honored, however I was asked of a skill that was not listed in the job description. When I said I did not have that skill, I received a response that another person at the company needs someone with this skill, with a tone like I was wasting time. After the interview, I went back to the job description and it still didn't have that skill listed as a requirement or even a preferred. I never heard from anyone at the company again. Every couple of months it seems the same position is advertised with that same "required skill" not listed. I felt like I wasted my time with an opening that I was destined to fail from the beginning as if I wasn't wanted to apply there so a missed appointment, a cold "missed email", then asked for a skill not posted on the ad.

    I have had several interviews with other companies but it was the best experience I ever had. The recruiting team accommodated with my schedule very nicely.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Base2 Solutions (Bellevue, WA (US)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen was with a female in HR who talked about what a great company it is. The second phone interview was with a male with multiple job titles/duties. If you are female no matter how much Scrum and Aerospace experience you have, you will not go through to the in-person interview. Suggestion: have more than one male interviewing candidates.

    16 May 2016 – Senior Recruiter

    First, we are very sorry you did not have a positive experience with us. Your perception is not reflective of our values, culture and the positive feedback we have received from other candidates.

    Our interview process is the same for everyone who is applying for a technical position with Base2.
    As a first step, a candidate will speak with a recruiter who then meets with the hiring manager to determine whether that candidate’s skills and qualifications are appropriate. If they both agree, the recruiter then schedules a technical phone screen with a senior consultant who is better suited to evaluate a candidate’s technical skills. We have a variety of folks who conduct our technical phone screens (both male and female), it all depends upon expertise and availability.
    If you were not chosen to move forward in the interview process it was because the hiring manager, tech screener and recruiter collectively determined that your skill set was not the best fit for the position at this time.
    We want all candidates to have a positive experience with Base2, even if not chosen for the current opening, and will continue to do our best to make that happen for every candidate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Base2 Solutions (Bellevue, WA (US)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. Recruiting contacted me within a couple of days to set up a discussion about the company and the position. This was followed a few days later with a 30-minute phone screen with the dev team lead. These questions were about what I was working on. Just trying to determine my experience level and if I was able to describe what I do clearly and concisely, a communication skills check.

    I was brought in for an on-site interview the following week. They paid for parking in an adjacent building. There were 3 sessions. One with QA. One with a director. One with pair of devs. This took about 2-3 hours total. The interviews were a nice mix of conversational and technical questions. No pressure tactics or brain teasers.

    I received an offer the following morning, contingent on references and a background check. The entire process took less than 2 weeks and the recruiting team was both prompt and very organized.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Base2 Solutions in November 2015.

    Interview

    (+) All rounds of my interview had felt like pleasant conversations, rather than interrogations or elimination rounds
    (+) Work Life Balance is encouraged: Even prior to giving offer, during interview Hiring Manager gave okay to WFH, if my kids ever need me. Those are were the most comforting words to hear in an interview. As I later learnt in the orientation, that was in conformance to Base2's directives of 'Family comes First'
    (+) HR and Hiring Manager, were spontaneous in communicating results. After each round, I received a response in less than 48 hours. It was consistently faster than I was communicated.

    Senior QA Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Base2 Solutions (Bellevue, WA (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was worst that I have been through. I applied online, passed a phone screen, and went through an on site interview. A day after the interview, the recruiter called me and said that I got the job but I had to wait 3-5 weeks for the position to open. Yesterday, I received an email stating the job had gone to a previous employee. Essentially a bait and switch of the position, I sill can't believe it.

    13 Jul 2015 – Senior Recruiter

    We strive to make everyone’s interview experience as positive as possible even when in the end we do not hire someone. In my excitement to bring back a former employee I neglected to take into consideration that a phone call might have been a better way to deliver the message to you. For this I want to extend my sincere apology.

    Associate Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellevue, WA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Base2 Solutions (Bellevue, WA (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred to Base2 through a friend and then applied online after speaking with a few employees at the company and learning more about what they do. The interview process took about a month and consisted of multiple phone interviews and a final on-site half day interview.

    Throughout the process Base2 was very professional. They wanted to take into consideration other opportunities I had at the time which I thought was both a courteous yet humble, and impressive approach. I felt they maintained a very honest and sincere attitude each time I spoke with someone from the company. They weren't trying to play any games, it was just honest interviewing. They were interested in seeing both if I was a good fit for Base2 and if they were a good fit for me.

    While I was interviewed on-site, I felt very welcome and comfortable throughout the whole process. They continued to be very authentic in their approach. Each person who interviewed me was professional and thoughtful. They seemed like they were just trying to get to know me on a more personal level, but still posed interesting and challenging scenarios as interview questions. I left the interview thinking, "I could definitely see myself working here."

    I was offered a position the next day and accepted shortly afterwards. I think the most appealing thing about the whole process was how honest and genuine everyone was. I could really tell it was something everyone believed in, and not just a collection of buzzwords on the "About us" company culture page. I think it's this authenticity that makes Base2 unique and a great place to work.
