    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at InterSystems (Cambridge, MA (US)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Before the application, there were 3 online tests: personality, technical and logical. The last one is the most challenging. By the results of these tests the interviewers will call you and ask many behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions, my experience and different things to find out more about me   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at InterSystems in October 2017.

    Interview

    They gave me two tests to take online, one predictive index test and one technical test. The predictive index test just gave a list of personality traits and asked to check off how I think other people would describe me and how I would describe myself. The technical test was a 20 question multiple choice test where they give you basic concepts of a made up programming languages and have you answer questions about them. If you pass the technical test then you're given a third test, a professional employment test, which tests you on your cognitive abilities with reading comprehension, logic, problem solving, and data interpretation questions.

    Interview

    Test consists of logic questions. It asks you to think about coding in a custom language, since the company uses a one. You are not allowed to re-apply so this is a pretty important test.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the individual questions were that difficult given a basic knowledge of computer science/logic. But if you spend just a little too much time on questions, you could run out of time.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at InterSystems.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was contacted for next steps and told I had to go through an online screening process: a Predictive Index Survey (personality test), a Technical Employment Test (logic test where you learn a custom-made coding language), and a Professional Employment Test (cognitive/problem solving test). You have to complete the first one and pass the second one to make it to the third one -- even though I thought I got maybe 19 or 20 out of 20 questions on the second test, I didn't "meet the mark." Not really sure what they're looking for and was a little disappointed with the poor formatting of the second test.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at InterSystems in January 2018.

    Interview

    Was given a series of online tests and phone interviews. Asked me to figure out what code from a language they made outputs. Overall, pretty easy, but high variance (any mistake is costly).

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at InterSystems in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my college, and received the standard questionnaires, the personality test and the first technical test. After taking the technical test, I was informed by email that they would no longer be considering my application. I wish they would disclose what their criteria is to pass the technical test, as well as provide feedback on the questions answered incorrectly.

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the instructions in the technical test were unclear   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at InterSystems.

    Interview

    The process is the same as others have stated. There are two online tests, a behavioral test and a technical test. I found that the technical test was time intensive but contained fair questions. The next day I got an email saying that I didn't pass the exam

    Interview Questions

    • The questions in the technical test increased in difficulty so make sure not to spend too much time on the first few.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Get replied pretty quick, then the HR send me one personality test with my mother language, which is Chinese. And a technical test based on a made up programming language.

    Interview Questions

    • I'm not CS person, so I tried best to answer the technical test based on logic. Basically, it is like an instruction section to a new language.   Answer Question
