Interview Details

I sent in my application and within a few days I got an email to come in for an interview. The second I stepped into the interview, I was handed a paper test of programming questions to write out. There were four questions:
1) I had to make my own version of Integer.parseInt(string) that would be able to work on any base
2) I had to do 4 queries on a set of tables and then explain what made these tables good and what made them bad.
3) I had to make a function with time complexity O(n) that determines what elements are in one array and not in the other
4) I had to make an XML parser
I was given 30 minutes to complete these questions. After the test, I spoke with two individuals and they analyzed each piece of my resume asking very detailed questions about things I have done many months to years ago.

    I was sat down in a room and had six different people interview me. Each one had technical questions to ask me, mainly on DCF. Had to go in depth with each element of the DCF from FCF to WACC and APV etc. Pretty rough.
