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.

    Application

    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...

    Application

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

    Interview

    On campus interview with their technical director (I think). He went through several data structure questions and asked me to write a piece of code. In the code questions I've given the right answer but he asked for an optimization, unfortunately there is actually no where to optimize (since the tables are sorted). He suggested to use hash table, but I was confused and not pointing out that it won't be an optimization. So they never contacted me afterwards.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Informatica (Redwood City, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Went through a one hour phone interview. Asked 2 basic technical questions including binary search alg and implementing a stack. Another question was given large sets of data, how would you find an element. I didn't really know what they really meant by this question or what they were looking for.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Informatica (Redwood City, CA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    Standard interviewing process. Phone interview is the used as the filter just like every other company. After you clear that, you are invited to the onsite interview where you are being interviewed by 4 or 5 people (one at a time). The Vice President usually comes in for the final round. The interviews are fairly rigorous but not impossible. They make sure that you know what you say you know.
