    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Foster City, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Foster City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Playspan in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone conversation with HR. She asked general programming theoretical questions and my interests. She then set up my onsite after a couple of weeks.
    Initially according to the schedule I got I had to meet 4 people on various teams and 1HR at the end of the day. But when I reached there, the main person who was hiring for the team I was interested in was busy that day and didn't get a chance to interview me. I felt that was the main reason why I received a reject from there.
    few of the questions-
    difference between Get and Post?
    Calculating checksum.
    basic SQL joins and sub queries
    questions on finding depth of tree, basic idea behind circular linked list

    Interview Questions
    • The last interviewer gave me a really tough time. I was not able to communicate properly to him at first.. could not understand what he was talking, also his phone rang three times in the middle of the interview while I was solving a question.. and he picked up.. that was so annoying. I was disappointed with Playspan. He asked me about pre-processing of stored data, basically indexing really large data set and some very complicated SQL queries.

      After this round I had decided that I wont accept the offer even if I was presented one.
