    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fidessa (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I finished the application online and received OA a few days later. There are two questions required me to finish em in 1 hour. Both are easy question so it took me 40mins. I received the next round interview after 1 work day I finished the first round.

    Interview Questions

    • At an airport, you have a timetable for arrivals and departures. You need to determine the minimum number of gates you’d need to provide so that all the planes can be placed at a gate as per their schedule.
      The arrival and departure times for each plane are presented in two arrays, sorted by arrival time, and you’re told the total number of flights for the day. Assume that no planes remain overnight at the airport; all fly in and back out on the same day. Assume that if a plane departs in the same minute as another plane arrives, the arriving plane takes priority (i.e. you'll still need the gate for the departing plane); Write a function that returns the minimum number of gates needed for the schedules you're given.
      Example:
      arr = {900, 940, 950, 1100, 1500, 1800}
      dep = {910, 1200, 1120, 1130, 1900, 2000}
      flights = 6
      In this example the return value should be 3 since the schedules for at most 3 planes overlap.
      Arrive 9:00 ; 1 gate
      Depart 9:10 ; 0 gates
      Arrive 9:40 ; 1 gate
      Arrive 9:50 ; 2 gates
      Arrive 11:00 ; 3 gates
      Depart 11:20; 2 gates
      Depart 11:30 ; 1 gate
      Depart 12:00 ; 0 gates
      Arrive 15:00 ; 1 gate
      Arrive 18:00 ; 2 gates
      Depart 19:00 ; 1 gate
      Depart 20:00 ; 0 gates   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fidessa in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, and was given a Hacker Rank interview coding test. I completed the test successfully, and was given a Spark Hire interview round after a couple of days, which is basically a one-way video interview.
    Following this, I was sent an email for a Code Pair asking for my availability. After setting that up, I got an email saying that the position had been filled.
    Zero human interaction, something told me right from the start that this was fishy. A little human interaction could do wonders.

    Interview Questions

    • Hacker Rank coding round question were:
      1. Minimum number of gates needed at an airport, given the arrival and departure times of the flights
      2. Given a string consisting of uppercase and lowercase letters, remove the matching pairs (Aa, Bb, etc) until there are no matching pairs within the string.

      Spark Hire questions were:
      1. Why are you looking for an opportunity at Fidessa?
      2. What is your preferred language of programming and why?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fidessa.

    Interview

    Hackerrank followed by a video interview followed by a coding test with an engineer and a Skype interview. I did not get past the coding round despite solving all the questions. They don't seem to really hire anyone despite interviewing a lot of people. They also do not give any feedback.

    Interview Questions

    • Variation of parentheses matching and another plane arrival departure problem. Video interview is important to say you love C++ whether you like it or not. The phone interview had simple problems solvable by hashset and hashmap.   Answer Question

    The process was fast. You ar supposed to code in C++ only. Being a Java Developer I made a lot of mistakes in syntax but was able to write a code with good time complexity. I got rejected and it was completely fair!
