Interview Details – First interview went horrible. Interviewer was very unresponsive during entire phone call. Answered 2/3 questions. Third question regarding graph algorithm I was not able to solve and I believe that is what caused me to not get offer. Know your data structures and algorithms very well.

Interview Details – Interviewed on campus. First guy was very unprofessional. Was laughing half the time I was answering his questions. He at one time made a snide remark directly at me, I almost just walked out the room. I first asked him if he was comfortable with the language I chose, but I had to constantly stop and explain to him the simplest syntax and functions.

Second guy was very professional. Straight and direct, seemed very robotic.

Very disappointed with the interview process. Do not see myself working in this type of environment.

Interview Question – Just algorithmic and data structure questions.   Answer Question
