Software Engineer Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Informatica in December 2014.

Interview Details

Very easy interview but the interviewer was unprepared! The interviewer didn't greet me and had no idea about the status of my application. He also just hung up after we were done without saying anything but 'Bye'. I solved the questions really fast and when I was done it seemed like he was googling random questions and asking me. Was shocked when I didn't get an offer because I thought I did really well.

    There is one campus interview and one onsite interview. People are nice. They seem to love their work. Software developers from different teams (in my case, four teams) will talk to you. They will decide whether you are a good match for their team. HR is responsible for behavior questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Informatica in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    There is one round on campus interview. Took 45 minutes. Two simple questions about binary tree traverse and string duplications.

    Then there is one day onsite interview. About 5 round totally, each is one hour. No break between interviews (except the lunch). So its a tough day. The questions including design, algorithm, test case, brain teaser...

    Pretty standard for college recruiting. Meet them in campus, had on campus interview. After that got 2 phone interviews. Then finally got an on-site interview. The interviews were difficult in general, but they were nice throughout the process. It looked like a very good place to be. They all seemed very happy working there.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Informatica.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview with their technical director (I think). He went through several data structure questions and asked me to write a piece of code. In the code questions I've given the right answer but he asked for an optimization, unfortunately there is actually no where to optimize (since the tables are sorted). He suggested to use hash table, but I was confused and not pointing out that it won't be an optimization. So they never contacted me afterwards.

    Interview Questions
    • What is the big o of several data structures of insert or search.   Answer Question
    • There are two tables like a relational database table, try to join them. The two tables are sorted.   Answer Question
