I interviewed at HBO

Interview

It was very easy and felt like a conversation. The usual general questions about your background, interest, etc... it really felt casual and was more like a conversation than an interview.

First you have to apply and then you get an invitation to do a digital interview which I thought was very weird but I guess this is the future now

Pretty standard as your top FAANG companies. phone screen and four rounds. Recruiter was very transparent all the way around. Wasn't that difficult too. I would recommend just practicing leetcode tagged questions

Interview

I was reached out to by a recruiter, and they set up a phone screen for me with one of the devs on the team. The phone screen was a technical question over hacker rank.

Interview Questions
  • The interview, asked me to create a binary tree and return a node's sibling. They kept changing the requirements, and it was 27 minutes in before we even defined what the problem was. Super negative experience. It seems they didn't have a question set for the interview, or had never given it before.
