Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Houston, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in March 2014.

Interview Details So, I applied for Software Developer position at Reynolds and Reynolds on some job portal. I was contacted by recruiter and asked to come to Houston office to take an assessment. Assessment wasnt hard at all, and as I found out later, I passed it. After I finished the test, I was asked if I have time to meet with recruiter. I had a short meeting with a recruiter. After that I had an interview with department Manager. Last interview that day was with department Director. Basically, I had 3 interviews and 1 hour long test all in one day. Then they made an appointment for me with Vice President for the next week.
After a week I had an interview with Vice President, which went pretty well. He told me that I am a good fit and that he thinks that I am capable of doing the kind of job they provide. He walked me out and told me that I would be contacted by a recruiter regarding further details after several days. I was pretty sure that I got the job. I didnt see any reasons why I wouldnt.
One week passed and I didnt hear nothing from them. I wrote a follow up email to them asking about the status of my application. They told me that they are reviewing my application. After several days I was contacted by Reynolds and Reynolds representative from Dayton, Ohio, saying that I didnt get a job. (Even though I had interviews in Houston not Dayton.)
Anyway, I think that this company is not a good place to work. Before I went to an interview, I saw that they got 2 starts out of 5 on Glassdoor and I was surprised, but now I see that they are worth it.
Waste of time, because I took several days of in order to attend the interviews in Reynolds and Reynolds, which last at least 2-3 hours. My suggestion is that stay away from that company.

Interview Question – How negotiable is the salary? (They are real cheapskates...)   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in March 2014.

Interview Details Initial contact was via e-mail and I was asked to come in for an assessment and possibly an interview (if the recruiters had time). I confirmed a testing time for the following week and went in on time. You are placed in a computer room with about 8-10 other individuals testing. After the test was completed, we waited around until the recruiter asked about 6 of the 10 applicants to go home and to keep an eye on their e-mail. The other four of us were interviewed by a recruiter individually. During the recruiter interview, she suggested that I consider other positions than I had initially applied for. Honestly, she presented me with a better-suited position and I agreed to interview for that.
After the recruiter interview, we were each asked to complete another application which just asks stuff like general interests and habits. Once that was finished, I met with someone from the department that the recruiter suggested. Finally, the VP of that department came in for another interview.
Following the interview with the VP, I was administered a drug test and background check and was told, "there was no reason not to celebrate." The following week, I was offered the position.

Interview Question – You are given an assessment similar to the practice exam e-mailed to you after confirming your testing date. Brush up on your algebra, and be able to pull out information quickly from word problems.They are not terribly difficult but were lengthy. I was able to finish the first two (alpha-sequence and pattern recognition) just within the time frame, but only completed about 70% of the mathematics portion since they were lengthy word problems. Brush up on your algebra, as this is all it is.
The recruiter's questions were typical interview questions: strengths, weaknesses, where do you see yourself in 3, 5 or 10 years, etc. You will not be caught off-guard by any of these if you've prepared.
The department interviews were geared toward the position itself, so these questions will vary from position to position.

Just a note: These guys interview probably dozens of people each week. They can smell BS a mile away. Your best bet is to be honest, smile, and relax. Don't tell them what you think they want to hear, and don't give them generic answers to the interview questions.

Interview Details interview is a type of employment test that involves a conversation between a job applicant and representative of the employing organization.[1] Interviews are one of the most popularly used devices for employee selection.[2] Interviews vary in the extent to which the questions are structured, from totally unstructured and free-wheeling conversation, to a set list of questions each applicant is asked.[3] Research has shown that structured interviews are more valid than unstructured, that is, they are more accurate in predicting which applicants will make good employees.[4]

Intern/Open to Different Positions Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
College Station, TX (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in April 2014.

Interview Details I originally signed up to be considered for a job when they posted on careerbuilder that they were looking for all employees and recent college graduates. I received a message back within 3 days of sending my resume in from Hr department. I was sent a pre-assessment test to do online and answer allot of questions. I was told at the bottom of the message to respond back if I had any questions about the assessment or forms. I filled out the forms and alot of the questions make you select things that did not apply such as "only whatever state residents have to answer" but it would not let you proceed without answering the questions. I sent this to the Hr department and never got a response back from them. I said ok whatever I will just continue. After I got done with the pre-assessment and it got sent in, I was contacted by someone else who wanted to set up an interview. I set up the interview and went to it about a week later. When I got there I had a computer room to go to with about 8-12 other people in it doing the computer assessment on site. The questions were very strange and I did not see any reason for them to make you do this assessment as maybe it was good practice but it would not apply to the positions that I was applying for or many of them. They were hiring for general maintenance and janitors and whatnot and I see no reason for janitors to have a very high sat score as basically this was that kind of test. It had geometrical figures and sentence building and things like that. I was not given a grade on what I made and for all I know I could have passed it and they "were considering other applicants" is all the info I was given after being done with the process and sent home. I did not find out they were considering other applicants till I got another email from them about a week later. I was not very turned on by their test and seen it as a waste of time/complete mind shaft. Basically they want structured people that can prepare for this assessment and give structured answeres. I graduated magma cum laude with honors from college and this test although I did in college/etc, it was like wtf is this sh*t.

Interview Question – We started with a object/shape and flipped and inverted it to where you can not see the lines in the object and masked it. We will present you a series of objects that resemble or closely resemble or not at all resemble the first object. Figure out if the objects are either the same, different, or none at all. Basically might as well just guess on this crap because the images are distorted and can not be accurately figured out.   View Answer

Interview Details Spent my personal time taking the stupid personality test, then went to their facility to take the Aptitude test. They told me after the test that they will contact me within 3 business days. They end up emailing me a week later that I did not get the job. Waste of time. Will never apply to this stupid company again.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds.

Interview Details They make you take many tests like others have mentioned. I didn't see the relevance of the tests but they are pretty simple besides the math portion. You should probably brush up on your math skills. The interview itself was pretty easy, really general interview questions. I was interviewed by a recruiter who knew nothing about Computer Science, so when I was explaining some of the projects on my resume she was kind of lost. Interview was over Skype.

Interview Question – No unexpected questions the interview was very general.   Answer Question
