    Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at IBM (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The whole process is super super slow, took around 3 months. First, 4 hours coding assessment. Second, half hour asking something about resume and two simple coding questions: fizz buzz and move all the zero to the end of the array. Third, one-hour coding questions: check winner of the tic tac toe and design a deck of a poker. Did not made it to on-site interview. Overall, it's very easy, but I don't know why I did not make it to on-site.

    Interview Questions

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at IBM (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called back within a week to book an in-person interview. I was interviewed by one interviewer. The interview was very friendly, told me to relax, and spent a good amount of time describing the work and role of the intern, so it felt more like a conversation and less like an interrogation. I was asked some basic technical questions about Python, the Linux shell and databases. I was also asked to describe some of my past software experiences and questioned as to how I would handle certain situations when working in a team or certain issues related to work.
