Very Difficult Interview

Software Engineering Interview

Software Engineering

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at ECI Telecom in November 2007.

Interview Details – This was the interview process when applying for a co-op after sophomore year:

I had a one on one interview on campus after initially submitting my resume at a campus job fair. They asked a few personality/HR type questions, but since the interview was with an Engineer, he moved on to some more technical questions. I don't think I did all that well, so I didn't expect to hear back.

About a week later I did hear back again, though. They offered to drive me in for an on-site interview that last about 4 hours. I got interviewed by three separate programmers, who all asked whiteboarding questions. I had listed C++ experience on my resume, though it was limited. I had made it clear that the vast majority of my experience was in Java, but in the interview they insisted that I try writing out my code in C++. This really made me nervous, and that plus a lack of experience in doing whiteboard exercises pretty much made the interview process miserable. Needless to say I didn't get an offer, but I did get a free lunch of out the deal, and a chauffeured car ride to their office.

Tips:
-Know your algorithms and data types. As a senior Comp. Engineer major, these would have been pretty easy to answer in the interview. At the time it was all new stuff to me though.
-Practice whiteboarding code examples.

Interview Question – Implement a linked list and a method to sort the list.   Answer Question

Java Software Engineer Interview

Java Software Engineer
Petah Tikva (Israel)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at ECI Telecom in February 2012.

Interview Details – Attended an exam/interview day at the company HQ at Petach-Tikva with three other candidates. The first part was an exam designed to test general intelligence, similar in style to many SAT exams. After that came a written exam to check the candidate's knowledge in Java.

After that, the two of us that passed were interviewed by a group manager. I was asked 4 different questions:
1) How do you detect if there is a loop in a linked list.
2) A question about design patterns that I do not remember (I flunked this one).
3) Implement a comparator for 4 binary signals, provided you have a comparator for 2.
4) Simple Geometry question (what is the shortest distance between two opposing vertices of a 3D cube).

Interviewer told me I passed it and sent me to an interview with the head of the team I was supposed to work under. He showed me a few examples of code in Java and asked me to find the bugs if there were any, I found them easy enough.

Also did an interview with HR.

After a week I got called up by HR and told I got the job, but that the company still hasn't opened the position, as there were some financial difficulties. After several weeks of 1 call a week on average from my side, I was told that they eventually closed the position completely and were not taking anyone in.

Interview Question – Question about design patterns that I was unfamiliar with.   View Answer
