Software Engineer II Interview

Anonymous Employee in Reno, NV (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Intuit (Reno, NV (US)) in October 2013.

Interview

I got the interview from a recruiter through LinkedIn. There were 3 rounds in all. Two of them telephonic and one onsite interview. But the whole process lasted about 3-4 months !!!

The first round was Okay with senior developer, second round was mostly managerial questions with the product manager. The final and onsite interview had 4 rounds...the questions asked were not that difficult..but they wanted to make sure that they are hiring the right candidate. :)

They asked both technical and HR questions throughout.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intuit (Mountain View, CA (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    It started last month in January where they had given open ended question to create API for one of their project. I implemented it pretty good and added more things than were asked. So I was called for onsite interview. They asked me to improve on the same project I worked on before. I did well and implemented whatever they asked except one question in two - three rounds of interview. Now they rejected me by saying I haven't covered small things in my project in first round. I don't understand why they called me onsite if they didn't like the project at first place. You cannot expect to develop production ready stuff in 4-6 hours. especially when you say its open ended question. Worst interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Intuit (Mountain View, CA (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The process took 7 weeks. I was referred by an employee. First, had phone screens with a recruiter and a hiring manager, both of which went pretty well. Then I had phone interviews with 3 different teams.
    The first interview was with an engineer who seemed overly serious and somewhat rude. He kept saying stuff like 'everything you type will be reviewed by the whole team to evaluate your skills'. Maybe it's just me, but such pressure made me really nervous, and I messed up on an easy interview question that I just practiced a day ago. After this, nobody got back to me for 2 weeks. Already assuming I bombed the interview, I moved on with my life.
    In 2 weeks, the same recruiter called me again and asked if I am available for another phone interview (no feedback about the first interview). My research of the position indicated that the new interview was for a position in a different team. Because the recruiter claimed the position was 'urgent', I scheduled it first thing in the morning the day after my vacation - only to be stood up by the interviewer. On the same day, a different recruiter called me to set up an interview with yet a different team, while the interview I was stood up for also got rescheduled.
    Both second and third phone interviews took place on the same day. I had pleasant experience with both engineers. One of the teams ended up getting back to me the next day to invite me onsite.
    From technical perspective, the onsite interview was not too hard for an average person (depending on one’s skills), but there were a few questions that caught me by surprise. For instance, I had to build a simple html/css/javascript page that calls a public API (no frameworks or libraries), which is not something an average software engineer does every day, even if they are frontend focused. The hiring manager dug deeper into my work experience; some of his questions indicated they were looking for someone with a bit more experience than me.
    About a week later the recruiter called me and explained that the team decided to move forward with a different candidate, and gave me some feedback that I didn’t do that well on the html/css/javascript question. I appreciated getting a quick and direct response. It was also written on my onsite interview invitation that I should expect to hear back within a week of the interview, or contact the VP of Talent Aquisition if I don’t. One of the interviewers told me that it is a recent Intuit’s policy to make hiring decisions quickly and not leave the candidates hanging.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Intuit (Bengaluru) in December 2015.

    Interview

    A4A process, which is, Access for Awesome.
    I had 2 rounds of telephonic interview.

    One was with a senior technical guy and another with manager from another team (there were technical questions from him as well)

    Post telephonic rounds, they called me onsite for the interview. At Intuit, A4A process is pretty good.
    You finish the introduction part by presenting a power point to all your panel members and they will pretty much cover all the questions other than the technical questions during the presentation.

    Post this, they present you a problem statement and you need to provide a working solution by actually coding it. You get around 45-60 minutes (at times 90) depending on the problem statement.
    After you're done with it, the questions will be around your solution, which are mostly around the "what, how and why?".
