Interview

Referred by a former intern, now would-be employee. Got an email from a recruiter a couple of weeks after that and was given an interview street online coding challenge about some graph problem. After solving it, the recruiter helps me set up an interview with another employee. Got a standard rejection email after that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Palantir Technologies in November 2012.

    Interview

    Sent in a resume online and was contacted two days later to schedule a phone interview. It consisted of a few basic coding/knowledge based questions followed by a more challenging coding/algorithm question, which took me the rest of the time. I didn't do well - had a lot of hints from the interviewer, and twice declared my algorithm correct when it really wasn't. Was notified two days later that I wouldn't be continuing in the interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Palantir Technologies in February 2012.

    Interview

    Was quickly set up with a phone interview after applying online, the interviewer asked a variety of technical questions and asked me to tell him the code over the phone, plus the Big Oh time and space complexity. Their website has very good information on the process. However, it would have helped if they set up a google doc for coding as it's much more efficient than dictation.
