    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Arista (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    After attending an invitation-only open house event, I submitted my resume via e-mail. A week later someone scheduled me for an on-site screen. The screen, with one of their SW engineers, lasted roughly one hour. It started with a question about the difference between an array and a pointer, both initialized to a "xyz...". The last question was to allocate memory for an n-dimensional array.

    Interview Questions

    • Write the prototype and fill out the body of a function used to allocate memory for an n-dimensional array. The prototype is of the form void *alloc_mem(int dimensions, int elem_num_for_each_dimension[]).   1 Answer

    Interview

    First, talk about yourself. And then go review your education and experiences on the resume, like causal conversation, finally take a test about accounting knowledge, ex: make adjusting, closing entries, and financial statement. I guess the test is not easy, it takes 2 hours to do. Kinda very good practice for your accounting knowledge.

    Interview

    The interviewer asked same question to me and the previous candidates. Not sure how did they judge and rejected. The interviewer gave very less time to talk about background and expertees and only focused on getting the answer. Though I solved the question in most efficient way I was not selected in other rounds.
