    Lead Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Fry in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter contacted me via email & setup a call with the hiring manager.
    Invited onsite for a 1x1 interview.

    Wan't impressed by the building, it's in a field south of Ann Arbor Airport. The building has almost no windows and walls painted a drab olive green. My first impression was not good, this was compounded by the fact that almost all the employees where walking around with their heads down looking depressed.

    The hiring manager showed up late wearing a T-shirt and shorts (I felt like I was in the twilight zone) and asked a few basic questions, an VP then came in and interviewed me separately, an technical guy then came in. He was best buddies with the founder... his only question was "If you use linux at home that's good enough!" Bizarre... I know.

    Then the printed and threw a 90 question test at me.... filled with the hardest of hard open answer questions. He left the room and said "leave it at reception when done, nobody will be here". At that point I was developing a migraine... I was in one of the strangest interviews ever.... and now a test... I answered a handful of questions then my brain gave out. I said S*w it and plopped the test on the now empty reception desk (it was past 5pm). After all... I didn't really want the job at that point!.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westmont, IL (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westmont, IL (US)
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fry in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    HR recruiter was very disorganized. They scheduled an interview but forgot to inform me. Then, HR rescheduled 2 times. I went through the usual HR screening interview. Then, I went for a panel interview with several senior and peer level interviews. I was surprised to see people wearing shorts and clogs.

    I asked the interviewers what makes them excited with their work... I got the standard answer that basically described their job description. I sensed people were not happy with their jobs, esp when I asked about how is it now that the company got bought by MICROS. People seemed to be defensive.

    Software Architect Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Fry in December 2007.

    Interview Details

    To put it kindly, perhaps the most arrogant interview panel I've ever met. Fry's work is based upon a complex, home-grown e-commerce framework - nothing truly unique, but they're really proud of it. The interviews consisted of being exposed to a pretty crude skills test, meeting a disheartening team of current employees, and being told just how amazing Fry was.

    The staff seemed pretty smart, but in a weird way almost bitter. I left the interview early - there'd be no way I'd like to work there.
