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 had to make an XML parser and no where on my resume did it say I am familiar with XML Answer Question
