    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 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

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied through my universities career webpage and got an email asking me to go through a couple of online exams to test my personality and technical knowledge in programming.

    The technical test is very basic coding questions but using a language that you will not be familiar with. Instead you are told about the language and asked very basic questions that requires you to apply what you are told.

    The downside to this is that it appears that if you don't get all 20 questions correct, then you are automatically denied, as I thought I did very well but get an email 3 hours after saying that I didn't pass the first round. What makes the process feel badly designed is that you don't get any feedback or anything else that can help you understand why you weren't chosen.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at InterSystems in October 2013.

    Interview

    Several pre-screening rounds before actual interview (including technical test and aptitude test). After completing these, I got an email from a recruiter that I had a phone interview. The interview was mostly behavioral with the HR recruiter, and she said at the end of the call that she would set me up for a second round interview with a manager. I got several emails throughout the rest of the fall saying that the managers were out of town certain weeks and that the interview would be arranged later, but I never got final confirmation to either move forward or be formally rejected. There was a definite lack of communication in the hiring process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at InterSystems.

    Interview

    was given three online tests; one is a personality test, the other is on a software test which they wrote on their own, where you learn about a made-up programming language and answer questions related to the usage of that language; the last test was a general math/logic/quantitative analysis test. I completed tests within three days and got an email saying that I passed those three and they would like to interview me. However in the end they somehow decided not to contact me.
