Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Informatica in October 2016.

Interview

Submitted my resume at university career fair. Then got an email asking me to submit again online. Then OA test. Three questions for 90 minutes. Two of them are coding, which I think is extremely difficult. The other one is basic Java syntax.

    Interview

    I applied at the career fair. I had an on campus interview. The interviewer was nice. We talked about my project in the beginning. Then I was asked three coding questions. The first one was about BST. The second one was about a self-balanced tree. The third one was about swapping pages. I did not get any offer. They have a very big department in India.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Informatica.

    Interview

    Applied through school career center website and also talked to recruiters during career fair. Got an on campus interview within 10 days. The interview is pretty short, only 60 minutes. The guy who conducted the interview was from the head quarter and has been a software engineer for 20 years. The question he asked was about is pretty easy. It was about Binary Search Tree Traverse. How to do it recursively and iteratively.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Informatica in December 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy interview but the interviewer was unprepared! The interviewer didn't greet me and had no idea about the status of my application. He also just hung up after we were done without saying anything but 'Bye'. I solved the questions really fast and when I was done it seemed like he was googling random questions and asking me. Was shocked when I didn't get an offer because I thought I did really well.

    Interview

    There is one campus interview and one onsite interview. People are nice. They seem to love their work. Software developers from different teams (in my case, four teams) will talk to you. They will decide whether you are a good match for their team. HR is responsible for behavior questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Informatica (Redwood City, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    There is one round on campus interview. Took 45 minutes. Two simple questions about binary tree traverse and string duplications.

    Then there is one day onsite interview. About 5 round totally, each is one hour. No break between interviews (except the lunch). So its a tough day. The questions including design, algorithm, test case, brain teaser...
