    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at InterSystems (Cambridge, MA (US)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through an acquaintance who works there and received an email from the recruiter the same day. We agreed to a date to have a conversation. The recruiter told me about the structure of their development teams and what products they have, what the corporate culture is like. He told me that I’d need to take 3 tests, which I could take online.
    The first was a personality test which is not timed. It took me about 15 or 20 minutes to complete. The second was a PET test which measures cognitive aptitude. It was 20 questions in 45 minutes. The last was a TET test which consisted of 20 questions, each of which introduces a new concept of a (seemingly fictional) computer language and then asks questions about applying what you learn. You have 35 minutes. Time is a factor in getting this one done. I had one question left when I ran out of time, but I thought I did OK with the other questions. However, I received an email the day after that I had not scored high enough to proceed onto interviews, and that if the requirement score should decrease over a period of 2 years, I’d be contacted. This was upsetting because I’ve worked with InterSystems’ products for many years and have good qualifications, but was derailed by having a bad day on the test(s). It’s really unfortunate that they don’t take other things into consideration, especially when you have a lot of experience with their flagship product.

    After I completed the online application, I soon received an email asking me to take three tests: the first a personality test, the second a programming test, and the third a general logic test.

Will update depending on whether I get a final offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at InterSystems.

    Interview

    3 Online Tests: First was a personality test where you have to choose words that you think describe you and also how friends would describe you. Second one was a technical test to see how fast you can learn a new logic system. If you pass the technical test then they give you a math/reading comprehension test to see how fast you can look at data and correctly interpret its meaning. Then a friendly HR phone interview mostly to give the interviewee information on the company.

    Interview Questions

    • There were questions about data tables that just wouldn't (read, shouldn't) be accepted at any company as a viable option to show information. It was hard to find where things were, and even though I did well given the short time I was expected to complete it in, it was very annoying.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at InterSystems in October 2014.

    Interview

    First round was online assessment. If cleared that then would be invited for face to face interviews.
    Online Assessment consisted of 1 section which was based on new language learning. The first half of questions were not difficult but the later half was slightly difficult. This online assessment is quite similar to 1 section provided during Epic test.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at InterSystems in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was a quick test of questions which you are not allowed to take ever again, even in subsequent years. Therefore, if you rush or do poorly on the test the first time you will never work at Intersystems. Kind of a poor system.
