    Interview

    For the first round, I had to do an online programming test. It consisted of about seven to eight questions. Some of the questions were programming questions, while other questions were about explaining what a piece of code does. About a week later, I was informed that I did not get past that round.

    Online test includes 4 or 3 coding problems and several code review problems. Coding is not very hard, but need good preparation. You should know how to merge and how to use stack. I never think someone will ask a coding problem about Roman number, but...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fidessa in August 2015.

    Interview

    Had a first screening test (very simple and short). After completion, I talked with a member from HR, who had a few technical questions (e.g. why you would use a linked-list over something else, etc.). Nothing too complicated.

    I then took an hour long hackerRank test, which was a mixture of coding, logic puzzles, and bash commands. After passing this, I scheduled a skype interview for two hours.

    The skype interview was going seemingly well for the first hour. Then they said that two other people would call me back for the second hour. They never called. I got an email two days later saying thanks for applying (stock email) and that was it. Worst interview experience I've had.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fidessa in May 2015.

    Interview

    Never applied before, received an invitation email from HR one day to complete an online assessment. It's consisted of 5 questions, three of which are involving data structures like linked list, tree and array. The other two questions are bug-fixing. Completed 4 of them in 150 minutes, but still got a rejection. Heard that they randomly sent lots of emails, but few were selected to move forward to next round.

    Interview

    Process was pretty simple. I applied through my school's career services job portal. After a short time someone reached out about availibility for a phone interview. Asked some standard questions about what I was looking for and if I was willing to relocate. After that some technical questions that weren't too hard. When the phone interview was over I was told to wait for an online programming test. Test was pretty simple nothing that you shouldn't have been prepared for at school. Upon passing that online technical test was brought in for an in person interview. Questions were all about prior experience or looking over the online programming evaluation. Offer extended a couple days later.

    OAs are first given on the Hackerank. People have to deal with the input issue which is a challenge. Failed the second OA due to time limitation. Should get well prepared on the coding challenge before applying the job.
