    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IBM.

    Interview

    Did an online interview, the IDE was buggy and did not respond. Overall, would recommend trying to get an in-person interview over an online one, and to expect some lags and no response from recruiters in the process.

    Interview Questions

    • Fizzbuzz type question, string searching question, ADT question.   1 Answer

    I just finished the challenge and it was a lot harder than I expected for a front end dev. I got FizzBuzz, object/array/string parsing, and tic tac toe as well as a few video questions like "why are you a good fit for this team" and such. They say it will take about 3 hours.
