    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at SMART Technologies in April 2014.

    Interview

    Terse, slow, and red flags were raised. A little dry and less revealing than others. Convoluted and often indecisive . But a great place to get a practice exam but not deeply technical. Flying to HQ is a good idea. More team members participating would allow for more insight into the culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of probing questions about personal life seemingly to to avoid work/life balance.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at SMART Technologies (Waterloo, ON (Canada)) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for this position through my university's job board. I was granted one interview after electronically submitting my resume and qualifications. The interviewers were very relaxed and easy to converse with. They asked a lot of technical questions about features of my language of choice (C++ at this time), but only a couple of coding questions. My impression of the facilities is that they were rather upscale and very pleasant. The office environment seems excellent.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at SMART Technologies (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online for a university co-op work term through the internet. Received a response about 1 week later.

    Interview was very easy. Most questions were testing general aptitude for programming, testing, and problem solving with some questions. Will ask only questions about subject that he thinks you should understand. For example, the job description wants Python, but if Python is not on your cover letter or resume, it will not be mentioned. If something like C++ is on your cover letter, prepare to talk about it.
