    Search Engineer, Front End Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at LinkedIn in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I got a call from a recuruiter, and followed by a phone interview. The interviewer asked couple of questions about algorithms. Some how he was not getting the message from me what I was trying to say. May be over the phone was killing the talk. But, got accepted to on site interview.
    The interview on site took 3 hourss ( a complete waste of my time). First guy came in, surprisingly different one than expected as other guy did not show up, and asked me 3 algorithmic questions. Looked like he was satisfied with the answers as I was suggesting different solutions than he had pre determined in his mind. My solutions were very close in terms of time and complexity.
    Second, an UI person came in. 10 years of experience in plain HTML/JSp static pages. No clue about hard core JS. Kept asking me about my experience. Did nt even have UI related questions to ask me as I think she paniced when I told her that I tech lead UI guys onsite and off shore. She asked me couple of pre-prepared JAVA questions rather than asking me UI questions. "how to desgin Hash_map or table" and "what do you need to implement equals method". Come on, UI person needs to stick to his/her domain.
    Third person, ex-google. Came in to test general coding abilities. We had a good talk over coding patterns and class loaders. But it did nt matter, as recuriter came in saying first 2 ppl did nt think that I am a best fit.
    I was like, did you guys even read the resumes before asking to come in on-site. totally wasted my 3 hours. Had no idea what were they interviewing for.
