Software Engineer-III Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA (US)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CDK Global (San Jose, CA (US)).

Interview

The interview process was straight forward. It was a referral so I had an initial discussion with the manager. Then within 2 weeks had 1 hr of a video call with two interviewers and then 2 hr of onsite with 1 another interviewer and manager.
Everything seems good until the next step came in. The manager informed the referral to inform me that I am selected and need to send expected compensation. It seemed odd to me though I comply. Since there was no base or range to compare to, I send an email with a quote based on the average market rate for the position and also asking for the company's range for the position and possible negotiation. I was expecting a counteroffer. Rather I received an outright rejection email stating the ask is too much to offer based on the interview feedback and with no range information or option to negotiate. It seems unprofessional to me and a waste of time and effort. I hope no one else faces a similar situation. Leason for me: never quote before the company person does.

    Software Engineer III Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hyderabad (India)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at CDK Global (Hyderabad (India)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was lengthy for me and I have to spend around 9-10 rounds of discussions including technical,onsite and management.HR informed that this was coz of some transition problem between ADP and CDK and gave a satisfying explanation. I really enjoyed the interview process of CDk which I suppose started from 5th round it was unique and exiting.There was onshore calls where they asked about work related question and technical questions.Then I was asked to code an assignment for a requirement in two business days.This was really innovative and the requirement can be handled in several , so based on your experience and coding style you can solve the problem.I enjoyed coding this and requirement was basic yet some out of the box thinking was required.After assignment I was interviewed by 7-8 people in skype.This was a bit of technical in which they wanted to know the different problem solving approach and architectural patterns.The team was very good and was never pushy and gave enough time to think and answer.I enjoyed this thoroughly. After this i had two more management rounds and I was in. The best part of interview was the people were very supportive and I was evaluated on my coding and thinking skill rather than bookish question/answers.
