Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at FactSet in January 2012.

Interview Details – The initial phone interview was rather straightforward, but the interviewer was kind of short and arrogant. Normal CS-theory questions about Big-O running times for specific algorithms and what sorting methods would be optimal given a set of data.
The on-site interviews were 4 back to back interviews with two being engineering topics (algorithms and data structures was the first, in-depth system designs the second). The other two were personality and HR tests, if you consider those to be real interviews (which, I guess they kind of are).

Interview Question – How would you implement a relational database schema where the only method acceptable is to store data is by using plain-text files?   Answer Question
