Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cadence Design Systems (San Jose, CA).

Interview

Applied online or on company portal; I don't remember.
About a month later I got a call from the hiring manager and was asked basic OOP related questions. Was a pretty relaxed conversation and lasted about 45 minutes.
Got an email the next day requesting an onsite interview.
The onsite interview was pretty easy compared to other interviews I'd given so far.
But I was applying to a New Grad position; so they probably didn't expect too much.

Interview Questions

  • Pretty basic coding: check if string is a palindrome, come up with test cases for a rectangle overlap function, explain AVL trees and find bugs in given code   Answer Question
