    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arista Networks in November 2020.

    Interview

    1 hour phone screen followed by 1 hour technical interview. Both were the same format, except video was on for the second interview -- SSH into their servers and do some leetcode-esque problems.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone Screen 1:
      Q1: Some questions about BSTs. The BST had a parent pointer, which kind of threw me off, since I didn't realize it did until about 20 minutes into the question. I think one of the questions was printing the BST in order (aka do an inorder traversal).

      Q2: Finding Islands on Leetcode

      Final Rd Interview:
      Q1: Finding the missing element in a sorted, consecutive list of numbers, aka [11,12,13,15]. This is very easy to do with binary search

      Q2: Given a linked list, modify it in place to contain only the Fibonacchi-indexed nodes. For example, it should only contain the 0th, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 8th, etc. nodes. This was pretty tricky but somehow I did it without the interviewers help.

      No behavioral questions at all, which I appreciated.   1 Answer

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Arista Networks in October 2020.

    Interview

    Technical interview involving solving 1 problem of finding the missing number in a sorted list, after considering a brute force solution the interviewer prompted me to come up with a faster solution with binary search. He was helping along the way and very nice. Then moved on to some tracing problem in C++, pointers related. In the end, he gave an overview of my performance which is very helpful!

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Arista Networks.

    Interview

    It was alright, received from an interview shortly after applying. Did an online interview with them looking at my code directly online. No behavioral questions, just technical questions. Definitely not as hard looking back at it but definitely not your standard leetcode questions.
