    Software Development Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Softwire.

    Interview

    Initial application via a straightforward online application form. Initial brainteaser style phone interview as described by other reviewers. Softwire were very quick to respond at all stages of the application process (a maximum of two days delay probably). Onsite interview process was much longer than I was expecting and consisted of multiple pseudocode problem solving puzzles, an on computer test (reasoning puzzles and essays rather than coding) and an HR style interview.

    Had initial phone interview last summer, asked complex algorithm questions and riddles. The interviewer seemed distracted and uninterested with anything I had to say.

    Wouldn’t recommend asking algorithm interview over the phone.

    Application

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

    Interview

    3 sections to the interview, all fairly straightforward. Nothing that unusual compared to interviews at similar roles, although it should be noted how prepared and structured it was. The hearing back after applying and interview booking was very fast and professional. Don't me scared as the actual interview is actually quite enjoyable

    • They asked not to share information about the application process but nothing that unusual was asked   Answer Question
