Nemetschek Vectorworks Interview Process
I applied at Nemetschek Vectorworks for the position of Software Engineer through an online application. I was interviewed at Nemetschek Vectorworks in 2013 and the process took more than a month. There were four rounds in the hiring process at Nemetschek Vectorworks - one telephonic screening and three On-Site Interviews.
Round 1 - Telephonic Screening
Telephonic Screening was the first thing. The interviewer mostly went over the overview of my resume. The questions were all expected and basic in nature. But after all that, the concentration moved from those questions to basic technical questions regarding OOPS and Java. After some thirty minutes of the screening, I was informed that my interview was scheduled after a week on site.
Round 2 - First On-Site Interview
This first round lasted about two hours and was the longest round in the entire process. The reason was that I was asked to write a few codes. There were three interviewers in this round and thus there was a bit of pressure residing over me. The codes were not hard but they were not easy as well. It took me some time to write. But I felt that they were impressed with my work. They all went cool after that and asked me some questions out of the technical bounds.
Round 3 - Second On-Site Round
This second round was with the VP of the company. Nothing much was asked as far as the technical things are concerned. He picked up my resume and went in depth with it. From top to bottom, I was asked questions on everything I had written. But the major focus was on the projects that I had mentioned in my resume. The methodology, the problems, the improvisations, the learnings, everything was asked over those projects. One thing I liked was that he himself had in-depth knowledge about everything.
Round 4 - HR interview
There was not much left for the HR to ask me. Everything about myself and my resume was already covered in the previous round. Thus, nothing much was asked in this round. The questions were the basic one that you are asked in almost every other interviews.
Q1. Where do you see yourself five years from now?
Q2. How will you maximize your output if you are selected for this position in our firm?
Q3. What if you get into a dispute with your team leader?
How to crack Nemetschek Vectorworks Interview
The foremost thing that I would like to share is that I did not like how the hiring process was stretched so much. A month is a big time and it took even more. But the thing that I liked is that I was duly informed about all the interview well before. This way, the interviews went on smooth which is quite something and gives you a satisfaction on the mental level.
Coming up to cracking the interviews, I would say that for each round, you need to prepare differently. Firstly you will face the telephonic interview for which you must be prepared with the Java and OOPS concepts and basic questions.
For the on-site round, you must be good in the coding. Nothing much was asked in this round and you will be judged by how good you are in coding. If your codes are good, then you will cast a good impression on the interviewers which will be a green signal for you mostly (until you do something very very wrong).
The VP round is thoroughly resume based. You will be asked never ending questions on your resume. So yes, be prepared especially with your past projects.
For the HR interview, you need not prepare anything. There will be some basic questions that you must have read everywhere. It is more of a formality.
