I applied online and interviewed at Medallia.

Interview Details – I applied online on their website. The recruiter replied back and setup an initial round of interview. The recruiter asked various background related questions like why medallia and all. She also asked basic java questions. I passed this round so she sent me an interviewstreet challenge which I completed successfully. The interviewstreet questions were very easy.

Then I got my first phone interview. The questions were pretty standard:
1. Check whether a given linkedlist has cycle or not.
2. Design Question - Design deck of cards then extended this question by asking me to implement a game.

I was pretty nervous in the second phone interview. The questions were very easy like bubble sort, insertion sort, hashing vs BST, etc. I was not able to clear this round due to my nervousness.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Medallia.

Interview Details – Online code test; it was supposed to take about an hour (at least that's what they said), but it would be impossible to write all that code in one hour, especially since you also have to think of a solution for each problem. The problems weren't that difficult, but it was obvious that they didn't want to hire, they just wanted to mock somebody.

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Medallia in September 2012.

Interview Details – One on campus interview, fair algorithm question. Second interview was over the phone and the interviewer cared more about petty syntax on my problem rather than my approach. The question was fair but as i worked it out he kept recommending different ways to do it and it ended up on him shaping up my answer.

Interview Question – Most efficient way to sort 1000 arrays of 1000 items into one huge array.   View Answer
