    Systems Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Primatics Financial (McLean, VA (US)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone call by the recruiter, talking about the company, product and the team.
    I had a phone interview by one of the Managers. It was basic screening- questions about my background- previous job, masters thesis and other academic projects. Technical questions were quite manageable- about object oriented concepts, sql programming and core java.

    Recruiter called within a week to schedule in-person interview.

    In-person interview lasted for about 3 hours.

    The interview rounds were all 1 on 1.

    First round was by a Sr. Software Engineer like a continuation of the phone call, basic questions about sql joins, Pl/sql cursors, procedures and implementation of object oriented concepts in java.

    Second round was Solutions Architect trying to get deeper understanding of my work experience and background by asking questions related to the implementation of my projects.

    Third round was mostly interactive with a Sr. Manager explaining the company's technology stack and architecture of their product and asking questions about my understanding.

    Fourth round was with HR, explaining the company's culture and showing the office.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Primatics Financial (McLean, VA (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online. First phone call was from HR person. It was just like any other phone interviews, many behavioral questions. He scheduled me another phone interview with a current support analyst. Again, still lots of behavioral questions and several scenario/hypothetical questions. Got invited to an on-site interview. The on-site interview was roughly 2 hours. Got to meet 3 people: a team member from a support team who interviewed me on the phone, a supervisor of the support team, and VP of customer support. They were all extremely friendly and easy-going. Everyone seemed to love working at this place. The supervisor actually went over every single item on my resume'. He asked a lot of technical questions; basically everything I put down on my resume. Just prepare and be ready to answer. The atmosphere was very welcoming. HR people seemed very nice and they actually responded to emails.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Primatics Financial (McLean, VA (US)).

    Interview

    Applied online with an employee referal, and initially spoke with an H/R manager. The conversation went well and was given another phone interview with one of the other support analysts. I have no clue how this analyst was given the task of interviewing a potential candidate because over 90% of the questions I was asked were about my first job back during my sophomore year in high school as a car cleaner at a car rental company. Since then I have had jobs in the mortgage and real estate industry and during our 20-30 conversation none of those positions were even discussed. I know quite a few people who work at Primatics and they are very intelligent, not positive how this guy landed a job here. From what I understand, after speaking with the people I know who hold positions there it has been over 6 months since they posted this position and have yet to fill it. They're offering 40-45k a year for position requirements that would deem easily over 60k. Can't be picky when you're cheap...
