I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at TripAdvisor in September 2013.

Interview Details – After o campus interview process, they use email to double check several information about me. such as the graduate date, coding preference. After two days, they sent me a email with link of codility to test the codeing skill. That test is ONLY 40 Min long. However, it is not that simple. You need to be careful with the requirements and have a good coding skills at least in one specific language.

Interview Question – One about stack machine the other is arrangement of digits.   View Answers (2)

Software Developer Interview

Software Developer
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at TripAdvisor in October 2013.

Interview Details – I gave them my resume in a job fair in our university (University of Ottawa) and got an email that evening that they can set up a first interview on-campus the next day. The email suggested that if I don't have time the next day, I can schedule a phone interview later. I went on for the on-campus interview.
The interview was a technical one, and lasted 30 minutes. The interviewer was a developer himself, who had just entered the company 6 months ago.

Interview Details – The recruiter started nothing and asked me to do white board coding directly. The whole interview is not so friendly. When I was writing code, he just worked with his own laptop. I guess they didn't really want to hire someone.

Interview Question – Interview Question: How to implement a BST?   Answer Question
