Software Engineer Interview

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Feedzai (New York, NY) in March 2016.

Interview

Got an online assessment first, which are some very simple questions with algorithms and concept of distributed system. Then a phone call from recruiter, test your personality and your preference. Finally several technical interview. The recruiter talked with you in a tone like you owed him 1 million dollars. PS: this job requires 75% of traveling while the paying is really low compared with jobs' requirement. I very much doubted if they can hire someone eligible to do this job.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Feedzai (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Multiple rounds of interview with a programming challenge that was very interesting. The interviewers themselves were very congenial and supportive - I did not feel pressured or anxious at any point. They are very interesting in getting to know you as a person and they don't fall into the standard 'ego battle' trope that is the hallmark of most developer interview experiences.

    Interview

    The interview process is slightly long but they do try and finish it withing a month. I cleared the first two stages in the form of a hackerrank and a behavioral phone screen. The third round was a 2 hour coding interview. It wen quite well but I guess they have a set of answers for all their questions and if you deviate even a bit, you might not get the call. I managed to code the entire question and still got rejected.

    Interview

    First an online challenge and then a talk with HR about your background. Next a 2-hour code pair interview on a small system. They talk to me like I owe them some money. Terrible interview.

    Applied to the company online. Recruiter asked for Pre-screening test through hackerRank. Interview was easy just one question. But I ran out of time before I could finish the solution.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Feedzai in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online on their website. The first interview was a HackerRank screening process(Very Easy). The second round interview was a non coding technical interview with a focus on multi-threading, deadlocks, Java concepts, garbage collection and performance optimization. Interviewer was very congenial and took a keen interest in unraveling the concepts related to multi threading.

    Third Interview was a 5 hour coding challenge based upon multi-threading and graph theory. I couldn't finish the challenge in given time but tried my best to implement the majority of all details. No points will be credited to you if you can't compile and get the desired output. After putting so much effort and energy this seems very very unfair !

    advice: 5 hr coding challenge is NOT the ideal way to screen candidates as there is no monitoring over their work, plus number of solutions(related) are already available online !

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Feedzai in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had 5 rounds of interview.
    1.) HackerRank Challenge - You will be given 90 min to solve 5 questions with 2 coding exercise and 3 Q&As. First coding challenge was tough but if you are good at Data Structures, its easy to crack. Others questions involve Data Structures, Multi-threading and distributed system concepts.
    2.) An Intro. call where you will be asked to talk about yourself and your projects.
    3.) Q&A session through phone. This is a 60 minute interview. You will be asked to provide suggestions on real-world scenarios. Mostly involving Data Structures, Multi-threading and distributed system.
    4.) 5-hour coding challenge. You will be asked to implement an algorithm using Java OOPS. Concepts: Multi-threading, OOPS, Data Structure (graph), JUnit, JavaDoc, Maven, Algorithms. This is a tough one.
    5.) Three back-to-back knock-out phone interview with the management team for 2 hours. All the questions are behavioral. So be prepared.

    Pros:
    - The interviews are very professional.
    - You get a chance to ask any questions related to your work or the company. I liked the way the management people answered my questions.
    - I was given immediate feedback about my mistakes. If you correct those mistakes immediately and maintain till the end of the call, you can clear that round.

    Cons:
    - More work.
    - More Travel (I like to travel. So this is my Pros)

    Advice:
    - Be confident
    - Never say anything other than what needs to be answered
    - Ask Questions. Good questions that impress them or which make them to answer for more than a minute.

    The process is very bad. After the phone interview, I scheduled another video call with hire manager. They canceled the meeting without notify me. Then they never get back to me.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Well, the online assessment and phone technical interview was fine, but the on-site interview was horrible...

    The interviewer has no experience for interviewing people at all, gave me ONLY ONE easy leetcode question that I did before (actually everyone who has used leetcode before would know this question). I gave the solution pretty fast, and she said that's not what she's looking for, so I thought "oh, maybe she wants to test something different", so I spent sometime to give another solution. After that, she said "Oh, actually I want this", then we found out the first solution was the correct solution... then I wrote the first solution again...

    After the white board question, she went to check her laptop to find some "interview question to ask". Then she found one question that I didn't know the answer, so I asked her what's her opinion or what's the correct answer, she said "at first, you need to Google it"... I did googled it after the interview and the answer she told me was WRONG...

    I didn't get the offer after this, but even I got, I won't accept it and work with any developer like that...
