Hello,
Was this a telephonic interview, 'cos, I am facing a very similar quality of candidates claming top quality work on their CV's but....., just nothing, when I ask some very basic questions.
I dont mean to hurt anyone here, but, honestly, the quality is pretty bad.
Cheers

My interviews are over the telephone. I have even had the interviewee have pauses while they try to look up the information. Actually, If they can find the information that quickly, I give them credit for that.

Or rather, it might have taken a while for the other persons in the room to give the answer to the interviewee.

I've heard of cases wherein a group of friends each 'specializing' in some area of the product will sit together. When the interviewer asks the question, the person specializing in that area will quickly jot the answer or signal the answer in some way. Voila !!

Hi alphaq,

Quote:

Zoltan---I know most of them but can u please explain me the following:
1.difference between Business and Cotrol Tables data sources
2.OCM Mappings
3.why are tables in different Data Sources




So you know the answers for the following:

Quote:

Q1.)
What does it mean Path Code & Environment? (for consultants too!!!)
Q2.)
What are the differences between them, and what is th relation each to other?




your #2.OCM Mappings
OCM - Object Configuration Manager / Object Mapping
Simply this is the relation between Path Code & Environment - as you already know

your #1.difference between Business and Cotrol Tables data sources
Briefly: the Data Source
They strores separately different type of tables (Business, Control)
Business Data strores the living business tables, which are updated and extended frequently and intensivly, Control Tables stores the quazi static tables, like Menus and UDCs.
The separation makes possible to handle these tables different, e.g.: - back-up
- location
- database type
- resources
- etc.

your #3.why are tables in different Data Sources
If you are familiar with the system archtect, Path Code and Environments, then you can easily figure out yourself.

There are different types of tables for different purpose and they are strored in different way separated Data Sources. This makes possible to share them different way between Systems, Environments, Path Codes, e.g.
System Tables - all environment see the same
Central Objects - environment with same path code see the same
Data Dictionary - all environment see the same (by default)
etc.

Regards,

Zoltán

Shoot your questions are a walk in the park compared to mine. These questions are for people who say they know OW. If you know OW well, the questions are easy. If you know the tools but not the OW applications, then you will need a lot of good specs.

If you can anwer more then 50% then I would consider you for the job. This is assuming a senior level programming. Some questions are designed more to see how the person answers the question, versus the actual answer. An entry level person would not know most of the answers.

Let me know what you think. Some are financial and some a logistic type questions

HAHAHAHA! Oh man, that's great! But, I think there's something in the Constitution about cruel and unusual punishment.



I can think of a half dozen 'sales' programmers who could get past 50% of the questions, but none of them were what I would call 'intuitive' programmers. They could turn out code, but they were slow and never coded scalable programs. They got by, but their stuff was very hard to change without addressing architecture issues.

I can also think of a few Purchasing and Transportation/Adv Warehouse programmers that would fail this test miserably, but are incredible programmers. They've a drive to write 'good' (architecturally, and efficient) software and in my book that will always trump memorized DD codes. That kind of ambition learns this stuff really fast.

Still, this is a first step to assessing time on-line, but someone who flops it only demonstrates they haven't been working on very specific Programs. Considering that, your test may not have a lot of value when it comes to hiring talented people. I guess that's my assumption with all of this discussion; we want to hire talented people. Isn't that our goal with these interviews? And yes, prior experience is a component of the talent.

I could probably get 50% or better on your test there, but like WB said, that
just shows that I'm familiar with those areas. I think that the "Intuitive"
aspect is much more valuable than specific knowledge.
WB showed me early on that it isn't really what you know, but how you think. If
you are given a task, how will you approach it? I didn't really *Get* it until
I left the company we worked for and was thrust into some areas where I was
completely unfamiliar. But, if you know JDE, you that basic structures apply to
most everything. I know Sales Order Entry and procurement, but given some time,
I'm figuring out manufacturing and many other areas... including that dang
Advanced Pricing and Adjustment modules someone here wrote... :)
Yea, I'm not the most inventive or intuitive programmer, but I can accomplish
any task given to me in a timely manner.
I think looking for someone who is confident and willing to grow is another
aspect that should be considered when interviewing. That's what got me my
current job... that and being able to sell ice to an eskimo.... :)

Wow! And those are your technical questions?!? So for your functional position interviews, do you ask them questions about the development tools?

If I came in to interview with you for a technical position and those were the questions you asked, I would be so caught off-guard I am sure I would bomb-out. I also would, in my head, wonder what you know about the toolset. I could see asking some of those at a later point in the interview...AFTER you've established their 'technical knowledge'. If you are basing your technical hires on the answers to those questions, I'd seriously rethink your process.

By the way, you got at least one of your questions wrong:
Quote:

Describe how you would add a new vendor (including address information) and what steps would and which files are affected for this process..
F0101
F0111
F0116
F0115
F0301




The vendor table is F0401.

I like Darren's approach to the interview process. I would look for the intangibles: desire to learn new things; enthusiam for the geeky nature of programming; some proven track-record of the ability to analyze a problem and come up with an effective, unique solution; and personality!

I also think a working knowledge of the C language is important for a JDE developer. The real guts of any of the systems is buried within the MBF's. You need to understand the low-level workings of the code in order to make any effective design changes and/or additions.

I agree with what everyone is saying above. But the questions are designed to test your level of knowledge. Your level of knowledge of JDE, no matter if it is the Application itself or the technical part. Prove to me you know something about JDE. Anything! Just don't put it on your resume and ask me for a six figure salary.

If I ask about a specific DD item and I get and answer like, "look in the DD inquiry screen or I would look in file X". Then that is also a great answer. An answer of "I don't know" should not get you far.

If you know one area well, then you can adapt to another area. I agree 100%. Then show me you know SOM and I will put in you in a MFG position.

I'm a firm believer that if you can find the answer quickly. Then that's just as good as knowing the answer.

But I see too many people in the IT field spend way too much time looking for stuff and never looking in the right place.

Great IT guys are great because they have a skill that I call "Trouble shooting". This means that no matter what the problem is, they can get the answer or find the problem quickly. How fast can you find a bug, fix a program, correct a corrupted database. Hence get the company back on track. I find people who have this skill can code great system.

Ok, I am really confused. I just interviewed another developer......They say they have four years experience and develop on a daily basis. I asked them about aliases, but they couldn't answer the questions.

Q: Status Codes (for Sales Order) A: Don't know, but don't really work with aliases.
Q: Business Unit, or Cost Center, or Branch Plant. A: Don't remember.
Q: Address Book Number. A: AN.
Q: What is DL01? A: Don't know.

How long do you need to be a developer to know address number is AN8 or Business Unit is MCU? My guess would be 1 day?

I really feel like I am talking to the guy from the movie "Catch Me If You Can" where he is a hustler who fakes being a Pilot or Doctor....But at least he could fake it enough to talk the lingo....

SO, IS THERE ANY DEVELOPER OUT THERE ON THIS LIST THAT DOESN'T KNOW MCU IS BRANCH PLANT?

I would really like to know - maybe that could be a baseline question - that if they don't get it right, I hang up on them.....just kidding, I'm not that mean - but it is very frustrating...

Ben again,
