Interview

HR was really nice and very prompt. However interviewer seemed to be a software engineer with not much background in interviewing people. Even though I applied for a software engineer position and I informed him that I have not worked with web technologies much, he kept on asking web related stuff instead of OOP concept or any programming question or anything in general other than web technologies.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through our school's online career board. Extremely fast turnaround with notification for interview in less than a week. I met with an software engineer in-person for a 1:1 interview on campus. Standard technical interview, asked about data structures (in my case hash tables) followed by a coding question. The interviewer was fairly enthusiastic and open to discussing the ins and outs of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me how to check if a string is a palindrome. Followed up by asking how to check if inserting, deleting, or replacing a character would result in a palindrome.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FactSet in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview which is basically a screening process. I have a background in data analysis but my interview mostly consisted of data structures and multi-threading. I couldn't answer clearly and it was definitely my fault that I didn't review data structures and threads to brush up the concepts. For any future aspirants I would advice you to go through data structures and threads.

    Interview Questions

    • What are the requirements for an object to be used as a hash key for a given HashMap?
      Given a network thread and set of worker threads, how would you manage the processing of the data?
      How would you make sure that all data has been processed from the network queue?
      How would you make sure while distributing the network load that the threads are not busy?

    Interview

    It's not always quick and easy to get hired. The job interview process can be lengthy. Being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. Today, many companies have an involved interview process starting with screening interviews, which often take place on the phone, followed by in-person interviews, second interviews, and even third interviews.
