Software Engineer Intern Interview

Software Engineer Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Expedia in February 2014.

Interview Details – Phone Interview - Got a call through initial screening at the career fair at my university. The interviewer just asked 1 coding question - given a string of a's b's and c's which can come in any order any number of times, reduce the string to a string in which every combination of two different characters will be replaced by the third one (ab will become c, bc a, cb a, ...). Keep on doing this tip possible. Mind the fact that in place and new string will give separate answers, you can choose any approach.
e.g. aabbcc becomes bb ( aabbcc -> acac -> bb)

Software Development Engineer Interview

Software Development Engineer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Expedia in December 2013.

Interview Details – Been contacted in Linkedin, didn't really go with high hope but was hoping for some good interview experience. Except for one engineer who has a simple, yet interesting question rest of the questions were either behavioral or just conversation where I questioned what technical ability, I was probed on. One of the interviewers literally struggled/confused with some of the fundamentals, at which point I totally lost interest in that job. The meeting with one of the senior director was just awful, he seemed to be so disinterested in the process itself that he couldn't control his yawn.

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer

Interviewed at Expedia

Interview Details – Initial phone interview included online collaborative testing. Testing included programming problems mainly based on hashmaps, arrays and looping. The interviewer was friendly and considerate although I do not think they were actually a software engineer. The collaborative interview lasted 45 to 60 minutes. There was very little discussion on what the job included.

Interview Question – How else could you populate the hashmap?   Answer Question
