    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SSI Schafer (Charlotte, NC (US)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR first and was described the position and the work culture. It was an easy interview and only asked if this was a role that I see myself in. Then was contacted to do an in person interview. The in person interview was code on the white board with Java with a panel of 3 senior engineers. Very friendly and easy going interview.

    Engineering Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at SSI Schafer (Charlotte, NC (US)).

    Interview

    Applied through University email. One phone interview which did the basic Resume review, then spent about 20 minutes explaining what the company does.

    I then went to an onsite interview, with the manager. This portion went very well, asked the basic what have you done, why, etc. The manager then said well, go sit with some of the team. It went downhill after that. The engineers were very unprofessional, basically whining about how they hate the amount of work they do. Asked me questions on a software I had told them I did not know how to use well. Then got irritated when i couldn't answer their questions. They manager strolled by about 40 minutes later, because he forgot I was still there. I then went and sat in his office while he tried to find HR to escort me out.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SSI Schafer (Charlotte, NC (US)) in July 2010.

    Interview

    I was approached by the VP of the department and indicated I would be interested in a job with SSI. After that it got a little bit chaotic. I was supposed to fly tout to other sites and do multiple interviews. It ended up with phone interviews with HR and different supervisors. Finally I was called by a director without prior notice who invited me for a one on one interview at the headquarter.

    The offer letter was send to a wrong e-mail address so I had to follow up on it. Overall it felt very unorganized but very willing to get me a job.
