    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Zynga.

    Interview Details

    Met a representative from Zynga at an infosession and gave my resume. Zynga scheduled an interview with me a few weeks after. Had one 30-minute interview. Spent the first half going over resume, and the second half was a couple of technical questions (one definition one and one coding one).

    Interview Questions
    • As long as you know your data structures well (especially linked lists), you should be fine for the technical questions. Nothing excessively complicated was asked -- as long as you have the basics down, you should be fine. Interviewer provided helpful hints if stuck.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Elaborate interview process. They asked me about different question from the same Crack the Coding interview book. Which almost every interviewer uses.

    Not very innovative questions, but companies are looking for clarity of thought rather than skills these days.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Zynga in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was difficult. I applied on campus, after which I got an on-campus interview. The interview was simple overall; they didn't ask any technical questions, but asked me about my experiences and went over my resume. This was followed by a phone interview, which was completely technical. The interview was in 3 rounds, followed one after another, with different interviewers. All questions were technical, followed by discussion about my projects and things on my resume.
