    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wayfair in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume at school career fair and online, and got a Skype interview within a week. The interview session was actually 2 ~45 min sessions: culture fit and technical, each with a separate interviewer.

    The culture fit interview was still mostly about my previous tech experience: most difficult project, group project dynamics, etc. The culture fit interview also had a basic coding question - how to merge and sort two unordered lists.

    The technical interview was a bunch of SQL queries, probably because I had SQL listed as a skill in my resume. No particular query stood out, but they did all build on each other.

    Got the offer ~2 weeks after the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Given a table that stores many companies' historical stock values and their dates, write a SQL query to return the date and company X's last stock value for each day.   Answer Question
