Senior Software Developer Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Honeywell (Atlanta, GA (US)) in April 2017.

Interview

I was first contacted by a recruiter. Then a test online and last they set me up for a 'hackathon' on a Saturday Morning at 7:00am.

I walked in, greeted and sat at a table by myself (instead of pair like it was intended). No one was able to think... 'oh, let's put him with a pair' and problem solved. No. They sat me down with one of the Honeywell current developers in her very early 20s. (keep this in mind, it is important).

They handed me a sheet of paper with a problem. I was supposed to solve this in one hour I believe and more importantly they will be assessing your interaction with your pair, team work, etc. But, I was by myself... sorry, not true; my pair was a 'human' robot that uttered 20 sentences during the whole process. I feel bad for her to some extent because she was supposed to brainstorm with me the solution. Obviously she knows the solution therefore she was timid on her answers because she didn't want to give much away. I must say that she was VERY nice (she brought me coffee) but other than that I didn't have any way to establish a good rapport there.

When I opened my computer she saw my Chrome theme where my age is displayed. She was "wowed" that i was almost 40 years old. That hit me, specially because really seemed discriminatory in some sense.

That caught my attention. When I started looking around, most of the interviewers were very very young guys and gals. I saw a pattern immediately.

At this point I was already discouraged to even work with this wave of Millennials so I spent my next hour reading between lines what was all this hackathon about.

At the face to face interview rounds, I noticed that they were focused mostly on just the younger crowd. In front of me there was a pair, one young guy and a much older guy. Five interviewers came to talk to the young guy. Only one to the older guy. See the pattern? And this was for most of the people there.

I had the 'privilege' to have one guy sitting with me to ask me about "scaling applications" He mentioned the term "elasticity". When I asked him what did he mean by 'elastic scaling' I was referring to a more technical explanation (either scale horizontally or vertically). Well, this condescending young kid tells me "Elasticity, like an elastic, you know" while doing with his hand a motion of stretching out a rubber band... Seriously?

Anyway, this was one of the most cold, dry and worthless experiences I have had. These kids running the show don't care. They are too caught up in their own ego and they feel like Gods walking around with a fake smile on their faces and memorized scripts that spit out at each table.

I know Honeywell is too big like to worry about glassdoor's interviews reviews. They have too much money and they just don't care. I felt treated like cattle. Honestly. Terrible.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Honeywell (Bengaluru).

    Interview

    They took one online test. Upon clearing the test there would be a hackathon coding challenge. We were divided into multiple groups with 3 members in each team. We were asked to create a blogging application with latest technologies. We divided the task among ourselves and completed our part. In between they came and checked what we were up and asked few questions. Later when we had to present our outcome finally surprisingly they didn't check anything on our code.....they asked few random questions to everyone like how security can be improved...it was kinda general discussion....later everyone was asked to leave for the day....as if some joke was going around....I can understand they want to hire the best talent but they have the worst process to select people....it's a whole day process and a complete waste of time..

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Honeywell (London, England (UK)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    I had got a call from HR and she scheduled my first round which was a telephonic.i cleared my telephonic technical round and was asked to take up F2F on a weekday. I took half day off and went all the way to ecoworld to attend the interview. I had technical F2F and managerial round the same day. I got a positive response and I was told that HR will get back to me for HR round the same day. I don't get any call from HR. When I called HR she told me that she got a positive feedback and since the panel is not available she couldn't arrange for HR round on the same day and i may expect a call shortly. I don't get a call for a week. Whenever I call HR or drop a mail I never used to get any response. Finally after a week I called HR from my friend's number, she received my call and she told they are looking for something more in candidate. I have following questions for recruitment team.
    1) Don't you guys go through the resume thoroughly before calling a candidate to interview?.
    2) How come the result was positive on the day of interview and how come now the panelists are looking for something more

    Please don't arrange for an interview and waste candidates time if you are not really clear with what you want or if you do not have a requirements. We take lot of effort in coming and attending interview on a weekday taking permission in current organisatio.Please respect others time.
