    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Vancouver, BC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Harris.

    Interview Details

    My interview was done very long time ago (10+ years) so this may not be as helpful as recent ones. I got this interview from a recruiting event that the company joined. At their booth I met the their team manager who is pretty interested in my resume and my education. So I got a chance for an formal interview. The interviewer's team were formed with two person, the software manager, as well as the office manager. I was asked to talk about my research at school, and asked me a few questions about C programming, which was the primary development language at that time. It went well and several days later when I called back to check, they told me that I had an offer.
