Difficult Interview

Software Development Engineer Interview

Software Development Engineer
Newton, MA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at TripAdvisor in April 2012.

Interview Details – Had 2 phone interviews.

The 1st interview was with a high-level manager. I was given the requirements for a "source code management" system.

I was asked to detail the kinds of objects to build and what the database table would look like.

The 2nd interview was a coding exercise with the following premise: Given a destination page and a page with all the links embedded in it, write a function that determines if the destination is "reachable". You must protect against cyclical / infinite recursion.

Easy Interview

Software Development Engineer Interview

Software Development Engineer
Boston, MA

The process took 2 months - interviewed at TripAdvisor in March 2012.

Interview Details – The first on campus interview is great.The interviewer is very nice .After a week, they assigned me a coding assignment and I finished in 24 hours.Then they scheduled me to an onsite interview at Boston. Nightmare began.I should realize that when I arrived at the office and find out my appointment time is 3 hours later than I was told by email.Then they just randomly grasped people from the office to interview me.The coding question is pretty easy and I finished them quickly.The interviewers are arrogant and make me feel bad.
