Average Interview

Software Engineering Intern Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in December 2009.

Interview Details – Dropped off resume at my university's career fair. Took only a few days for them to offer a phone interview. From phone interview to onsite interview, hoever, took 2 months. Did onsite interviews for 4 1:1 interviews lasting 45 mins each. Now it's been another month since the onsite interview and no word. It's possible that they are really slow in the procedure because of red tape.

Interview Question – Reverse the words in a string, but not the characters. Do it in linear time.   View Answers (2)

Software Engineer Intern Interview

The process took a day - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in February 2009.

Interview Details – I was contacted by the manager, and a phone interview was set up. There were no technical questions during the phone interview, more of what I have done before. He then gave me a test which consisted of constructing a BFS and DFS iteratively, some Java concurrency issues, and basic object oriented questions.

Interview Questions

  • Write a function in Java that will take a sorted array of ints, possibly with duplicates, and compact the array removing all the duplicate numbers. That is, if the contains the numbers - 1, 3, 7, 7, 8, 9, 9, 9, 10, then when the function returns, the contents should be - 1, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10. Be sure your answer is as efficient as possible. Describe the efficiency of your algorithm using big O notation.   View Answers (5)
  • Write a program in Java that prints the numbers from 1 to 100. But for multiples of three print “Fizz” instead of the number and for the multiples of five print “Buzz”. For numbers which are multiples of both three and five print “FizzBuzz”.   View Answers (2)
  • Given the root node of a tree, write two Java programs to visit all nodes of the tree, one in a depth-first fashion and the other in a breadth-first fashion, both without using recursion. Assume a node is represented by a class named Node, which has a method children() that returns a list of child nodes. Call node.visit() to visit a node.   View Answer
  • What are Encapsulation, Inheritance and Polymorphism?   Answer Question
  • What is the difference between Private, Protected, and Public when applied to members of a Java class? What is “Package Scope”?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The salary was too low.
