    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Apple (Seattle, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter a few months ago for a position in the Turi group. But at that time their interest fell through. They later contacted me again and setup a phone screen with their hiring manager. The phone screen was easy enough, nothing major. We talked a lot about my experience and some behavioral questions.

    Later they invited me to an onsite loop. The onsite loop was difficult but I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge as it was not the regular data structure algorithm questions but much more deeper than that. Most questions involved scaling questions and machine learning questions because I had applied for a distributed system / machine learning software engineering position.

    Overall it was an amazing experience and even if I did not get the job, I learned during those interviews. The interviewers were all very professional. Only negative was that the onsite interview was a bit long because I talked to at least 7 people during the whole day.

    Interview Questions

    • NDA: A few graph questions, system design and scaling and Machine Learning questions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Different from other interviews. There was a group exercise where you have to introduce the person sitting next to you and convince the managers that they should hire them. This is spoken in front of roughly 50 people. Then there was a group scenario activity.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apple (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Some engineer called me. For a 1 hour coding round (Java position) started with some basic questions. Then kept asking about networking internals, file system internals, network packet details, protocol details. This is especially confusing since the position requirements don't list them.

    So it ended with no coding and in 30 mins.
