    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at E*TRADE Financial (Menlo Park, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    It was good they asked most of Java questions though they have asked many questions on algorithms like Linked List,BSF,Collections.

     First 15 minute meeting with the recruiter, then a series of 4 tech interviews. Two engineers attended each interview round and they all opened with some background about themselves and their projects, and then we went straight into the tech question. Afterwards I was given time to ask questions of the interviewers. At noon I was taken to lunch by two engineers and we had more discussion, but no tech questions, during that hour. Some of the interviews were conducted with one person in the room and one person teleconferencing in.
