    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gemalto in July 2016.

    Interview

    Difficult to get co-ordinated interviews. But they try really hard and everyone I spoke to was super friendly. Waiting between interviews was painful. But that is mostly because they are distributed globally.

    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Gemalto.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview shortly after the application deadline. The interviewer asked basic questions about my strengths, weaknesses, and greatest accomplishments. After the phone interview, I was called in for an in-person interview the following week. There I was interviewed by 5 separate employees. I was asked similar questions to the phone interview but went into more detail. They also were very interested in they type of analysis work I've done in the past or know how to do (using computer applications like Excel).

    Overall - it was a good interview. I didn't feel like i was in the hot seat and it was more of a conversation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Gemalto (Austin, TX (US)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview was a straight forward Java full stack developer type of conversation. The interviewer asked about my experience and then followed up with some technical question. I was fairly confident I answered them all correctly. After the technical test, it led to me just asking him questions about the development team, methodologies, work-life balance...

    Software Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gemalto (Austin, TX (US)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through a friend. HR contacted me to schedule an interview for Monday. She sent me the job description for "Software Development Manager", and the names and title of people who will interview me over the phone (3 people).

    I think the people who are interviewing me are located in a different country, and unfortunately, none of them was able to talk to me on the scheduled time. I contacted HR, and she is very apologetic and nice. She rescheduled my interview with a different manager for the next day.

    During my interview, I found out the interview is for team lead position, not the software development manager that I was told by HR. I still continued with the interview just to get some practice but I was a bit disappointed.

    Gemalto's HR is awesome, but the managers seems a little bit unorganized. (Maybe I'm still a bit bitter.... not sure).

    Interview Questions

    • 1. do you want to spent 80% or 90% of your time coding?

    Senior UNIX Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gemalto (Austin, TX (US)).

    Interview

    Process was very fast once it got moving. Scheduling seemed to be a real issue for them, the date changed repeatedly and interviewer was over an hour late. Testing & questions were very in-depth. Interviewer appreciated straight answers.
    HR very thorough during on-boarding, covered all topics related to HR aspects (benefits, etc..) and was available for follow up after I started.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical written test went into many areas I had no documented expertise in, questions within my area pushed me to the limits of my knowledge. No unexpected questions, no real difficult ones since interviewer was as technical as I am and I was straightforward if I did not know.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The first one was in line with the market and close to what I expected, so I took it.
     I wanted the technical aspect of the job based on the companies potential.
