Difficult Interview

Software Development Engineer Intern Interview

Software Development Engineer Intern
Bellevue, WA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Expedia in March 2014.

Interview Details – Campus interviews, 1 on 1 with white board coding. Simple problems using Binary search tree traversal and binary search for a scenario. Interviews went well and got invited for onsite interviews at Bellevue HQ. It was challenging and fun; 3 back to back interviews. Two interviewers were fun, while one of them was uptight with hardly a smile. Expedia is quite generous in reimbursing the travel/lodging costs. $75 per day on meals.
Got the offer within 10 days. The pay rate is the best part, exceeds expectations. The whole process was quick, efficient and enjoyable.

Interview Question – 1] Given a series of data, cluster it into sub components. It was for a specific use case which was fun to solve. Prepare HashMap well.
2] Given 2 rectangles, find out the smaller rectangle which is formed by the intersection of the larger rectangles.
3] Given a 2D matrix filled with 1s and 0s, find out the number of connected components of 1s.

Software Development Engineer Intern Interview

Software Development Engineer Intern
Bellevue, WA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Expedia.

Interview Details – I met them on campus. Had an on-campus in-person interview and it went well. I was contacted about a week later to be flown out to Bellevue, WA for a round of interviews at their headquarters.

I had 3 different one-hour interviews. The first one was mostly conversational. The interviewer was into databases so a lot of questions were about that. The second interview was more white-board coding oriented. I was asked to solve an n by n tic tac toe game. I think I did fairly well since I managed to get an O(1) solution. The third interview was OOP oriented. I was asked to draw out the design I'd give a library.

Overall I don't think I did too bad. I'm an undergraduate student though, and the rest of the interviewees were graduate students who already had prior work experience. I think that's what ultimately lead to me not getting an offer.

Interview Question – Find if an n by n tic tac toe game has a winner in constant time.   View Answer
