    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Highbridge Capital Management (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The first round of interview is got from the school career fair. This is a telephone interview for 30 minutes. At first they ask me about the past experience and the programming experiences, especially for the projects that I did before. Also, they are trying to find some of the basic java questions. Although some of them not so familiar, but I managed to answer them.
    I think the interview went well, but actually it turned out I was reject and I did not know the reason. That's a sad news.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Highbridge Capital Management (New York, NY) in December 2010.

    Interview

    It was for a Java development position. At no time during the two phone screens (30 and 90 minutes) or the 2 hour in-person interview, were any Java questions, or any programming questions in general, ever asked.

    The team manager was not interested in how I solved the posed problems at previous positions. He was interested in one thing, and one thing only: how to redesign their current system. He provided me DETAILED specs of the current system, and asked me, in excrutiating detail, how I would re-architect it to provide redundancy, HA, etc. Specifically, he asked for state diagrams, actors/activity diagrams, use cases, etc.

    It turns out this agent sent in 12 people for face to face meetings. It turns out there were several other agents who also sent in that many people. The feedback on me was: he's perfect, but we're not ready to hire right now.

    In other words, this guy offered a higher-than-high salary range to attract top talent, and then picked their brains on how to do his job - for free. He typed in every word I said on the phone screen, and collected every scrap of architectural schematics, etc, that I drew during the face-to-face meeting, but left anything I drew that detailed how I had solved the same problem at another firm.

    Clearly he was only interested in using them to solve his business problem, not to hire someone.

    FWIW: the agent has decided not to send any more candidates to this firm as they're clearly wasting everyone's time.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a system that's architected as A, B and C, how would you redesign it to include features D, E and F with HA/Failover/Redundancy/etc; Draw SPECIFIC scehmatics and relational functional diagrams; provide action and state diagrams; write pseudo code to detail work flow.   1 Answer
