Software Engineer Interview

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Intuit (Berkeley, CA) in January 2017.

Interview

I interviewed at a university, after applying through my university's careers website. The interview was two parts, behavioral and technical. The behavioral part focused on your resume-listed achievements, as well as answers to questions like "Tell me a time when..." For me, they wanted examples of times when I embodied Intuit's values which are 1) Be Bold, 2) Be Decisive, etc. The technical part was easier than I expected. Do not worry too much about 100% correct syntax, be sure to explain your thought process clearly to your interviewers, take any hints they try to give you, and be sure to know your data structures and look-up times as they might quiz you on those as well.

I did have to follow up with my recruiter about a week after my interview when I hadn't heard back, but she was quick to respond once I reached out to her.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Intuit in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was recruited after submitting my resume to a school info session. Got an e-mail, scheduled two 30-min interviews on campus--one technical, one behavioral.

    Technical was simple, was asked more "how do you do this" questions about coding than abstract ones.

    Behavioral--very stiff and uncomfortable. It felt very impersonal and the interviewer did not seem into it (no pun intended). Didn't expect to be called back and didn't want to be.

    Got a response about 1.5 weeks after my interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Intuit.

    Interview

    30 minute phone interview, and later was invited for an onsite 2-hr interview. The onsite had a mix of behavioral and technical questions.

    Some behavioral questions:
    Why Intuit?
    Why software engineer?

    Some technical questions (phone & onsite):
    1) Construct a balanced binary search tree from a sorted array
    2) Reverse a linked List
    3) Return the next in order node in a tree using a reference to a single node.
    4) Find the employees with the highest salary (SQL crap)
    5) Find the employees with the highest salary from every department
    6) Implement an LRU cache

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Intuit.

    Interview

    I had an extremely unprofessional experience with Intuit.
    The hiring manager said I did well on the coding test. Afterwards, the hiring manager reacted rudely and negatively me when she found out about me *politely* and *professionally* declining a offer with Intuit in the past. This is all unprovoked, as I got a call from them just to pass along the insult. I wish she insulted me at least before she asked me to take the test so I wouldn't waste my time or at least gave me a generic rejection.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intuit in March 2016.

    Interview

    One assessment followed by a very pleasant video interview (technical) conducted by karat. Then 1-2 months of wait to be matched with a hiring manager. Final round was 1 technical and 1 behavioral interview, both virtual. The final technical round was terrible, the engineer didn't answer questions about the problem and didn't help me in solving the problem at all. Problem description was very vague and she never clearly mentioned what exactly she wanted and kept rushing me into coding it without properly understanding the question.

    Behavioral interview also had some hard situation based questions
