Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC (US)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Raleigh, NC (US)) in November 2010.

Interview

It was a very pleasant experience. The recruiter contacted me via phone and asked me about my courses and projects related to the qualifications they were looking for. He described the position to me.

Later I was called for an onsite interview. The whole team talked to me in groups of two and asked me several questions and kept asking tools and languages I used for doing my academic projects. The whole process was very smooth and each and every one of them made it really comfortable. They key is to have general software skills and a burning desire to learn and excel.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GlaxoSmithKline (Mumbai (India)) in March 2008.

    Interview

    They wanted a technical person in the ASP.NET field to interact with their IT/development partners or outsourced. I went through 4 rounds of interview. All went well and I might have joined, it was the final or HR round which made me reject the offer. The remuneration was not an issues the HR personnel who interviewed me, pissed me off. After 3 great rounds of interviews with the senior most management, the HR guy was so irritating and asked some really silly and even disrespecting questions. Even while rolling out the offer, the process took too long and was extremely bad.
