Interview Details

I was offered a preliminary technical interview after meeting with recruiters at a career fair, which was difficult. I had a subsequent onsite interview with 3 managers and a director. The interviews were all technical and ranged greatly in difficulty, but tended to be somewhat tricky. I was told I would hear back with a decision within a week and then never heard back.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at TripAdvisor in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    i quickly sent my resume. One or two days later I got email with a coding test link to be finished in one week. It's two-question within one hour. about stack and array. I screwed it up and got rejected on next day. I guess it's because it was not the answer they expected to hear.

    Interview Questions
    • They have required time and space complexity, so you need to come up with the right one right away. cuz you only have 30 minutes for each question and the question description was quite long...   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at TripAdvisor in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I initially met the TripAdvisor recruiters at a Career fair at UMD, College Park. They liked my resume, and invited me to a 15-minute (surprisingly short) technical interview the following day on the spot, where the tech guy (there was only 1) asked me to solve one question on a board - how do you reverse a singly-linked list? He was very up front and didn't ask nor allow questions as he was "short on time", which rather frankly, I found very rude. Overall, it was a mediocre experience, they seemed like they wanted to screen potential interns very rigorously and therefore had a worklike attitude
