Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Groupon.

Interview

2 rounds of phone interview and then onsite. They were all technical interviews. First a couple questions on your resume and jump to coding and follow-up questions. They may throw you another question to you if you finish the first one and there are still plenty of time left. So be aware of that.

Interview Questions

  • DP questions which you can find similar ones on coding practice websites.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Groupon.

    Interview

    Phone interview by someone, who was basically doing something else, e.g. texting and emailing since I could hear the sound. The background was very noisy, and the whole process was disappointing. The coding question was complicated and due to the interrupting noise I couldn't even focus.
    The whole process was very upset.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Groupon (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for the Software Engineer position. Initial round was a phone screen where the interviewer asked me questions based on my skills mentioned on my resume and then had a coding question. It was pretty straightforward. Later I was invited for an On-site interview and had 5 rounds. Each round consisted of discussing experience on a project mentioned on the resume and a whiteboard coding question. The questions were based on knowledge of Data Structures and Algorithms. The focus was more on solving the problems rather than solving it in optimum time.

    Interview Questions

    • One round they asked me to implement a HashMap. The interviewer was not too clear about what was actually required.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Groupon (Palo Alto, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I had 1 on campus interview through the university and 1 onsite. The interview process was really fast and it took only 2 weeks from on campus interview to offer letter. The onsite interview had 3 technical interviews and 1 lunch interview. There were a surprising amount of behavioral questions. Other than that the interview process was really easy.
