Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at The Climate Corp in January 2014.
Interview Details – First Phone screen is ask about basic Java knowledge. Then at the same day told me that I passed and schedule for a onsite interview.
I went to the company and only ask one question about java. Then told me the interview is finished. I don't know what's going on! It is impossible. I went from San Jose to San Francisco for two hours, and it cost me one day for this. And I only asked one question then the manager is out and ask hr to tell me that I am not fit for this position.
How could you know one question in java can decide I am not fit for this position??? So strange company, you can not believe it, take care if you waste time on it!!!!

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at The Climate Corp in April 2012.
Interview Details – I was at their headquarters for 4 hours and had 4 back to back interviews. The interviews were technical and they tried to tailor the questions to my background. The last interview was with the head of engineering and it was an overview of what the company does in a very high level more than a technical interview. The interviewers were very amiable and they definitely made stressful moments a lot easier. I would say the programming and algorithmic questions were not very hard but I just got nervous and screwed up a bit.
Interview Question – Given a list of documents and a query, how would you find the top 10 most relevant documents to that query? Answer Question

Interview Details – The CTO of the company called me and first asked me to several general questions related to the job and/or my resume. For example, explain data encapsulation in OO design. Then for the algorithm question, he asked me what data structure to use for quickly predicting word the user wants to enter from the first few key he/she pressed. I didn't get it at first but the interviewer was very patient to give me hints and finally I I got it. The interview went on for an hour, longer than usual as told by the recruiter.
