Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Boston, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Linedata.

Interview Details – Phone screen interview. Besides the general questions about my resume there were two other questions. Note: these are the typical questions that degree centered interviewers ask. The point is to see how you think but here it is just the challenge to see how smart you are.

It seems more competitive than collaborative. I did not like the "tone" of the interview.

Interview Questions

  • Write (pseudo-code) and function to reverse a string   View Answer
  • Given a large array where the next item of the array is 2 more than its predecessor (example: 5,7,9,11,13,15 . . . ) write a function to locate the position in the array where the difference is not 2.   View Answer
  • Write a function that returns a string that is the sum of two integers represented by strings. The point is that the numbers represented by string would be larger than an int can hold. Example: string Sum(string valueOne, string valueTwo) { . . .}   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Junior Java Developer Interview

Junior Java Developer
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Linedata in December 2013.

Interview Details – This communication with this company started when the recruiter (in California) emailed me to answer 10 questions for which I answered, in what it seems when she replies, satisfactory manner. She then asks to schedule an on-site 1:1 interview afterwards said we had to schedule a phone interview. Since it was towards the end of the week, I scheduled them back to back. The phone interview is the usual recruiter chat. The on-site interview consisted of 4 questions, which were very easy... almost insulting really. He asked me to create a blackjack program on paper to which I replied that "I don't know how to play Blackjack.. Can you tell me the rules?" Changes the question entirely to code a card class...... The on-site interview was imho, a 2 hour (1 hour transportation/1hour interview) waste of time as it could have been done over the phone with a google doc.

Interview Question – Not difficult.... Code a Deck and Card class then three sql questions that involve the use of JOINs and one that involves the use of COUNT / DISTINCT or COUNT / GROUP BY.   Answer Question
