    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Lime Brokerage LLC (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Hackerrank test screener, seemed a healthy balance of easy/slightly difficult questions. Great as a screener.

    Afterwards I was invited to a wordpair session on Hackerrank. There was a snaffu regarding the phonecall, but after that was sorted out, we went to a session where a few quiz questions were thrown out there followed by the code session. quiz questions were basic (tcpvudp, multithreaded experience, etc.)

    Now here is why I am writing this review - I had a very rude and arrogant interviewer. In addition to citing things that were wrong (that really weren't) he had an affinity towards ignoring approach and the caveats I would say. Very absolutist in how you are wrong. For example, why use a struct vs. a class? Well I'm in an interview session, I want to make it quick and dirty. It was overall a terrible experience and I know it was a way for someone to feel good about themselves (the interviewer).

    I'm genuinely disappointed because everything I read spoke towards the company being a solid employer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lime Brokerage LLC (Boston, MA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I made it till the second stage. The first stage was a coding challenge on hackerrank. It consisted of 4 questions. The time provided was inadequate for 4 questions. I was able to complete only 3 questions. Nevertheless, I got selected for second round.

    Second stage consisted of a video interview on hackerrank codepair with one engineer. I was asked to implement a queue from scratch. However, my friend who interviewed with a different engineer was asked different questions. He did not seem satisfied with my implementation. They did not get back to me initially, but I followed up and they replied saying I was not selected for next round

    I was asked to do an Online Coding (Hacker Rank) test which comprised of two problems. It was quite okay if you know basics very well. Precisely, you have to complete a function given and not worry about the main because it is being disabled.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lime Brokerage LLC.

    Interview

    First there were two phone screens, pretty simple just testing basic algorithms and data structures knowledge, no crazy coding or anything.

    When we were ready to move forward, I lived in Boston and didn't have a car at the time so they treated me really well and set me up with a limo pickup to get me to the company office in Waltham.

    Went through 6 different interviews onsite, all friendly folks, reasonably challenging questions. Most were whiteboard coding questions, but some were actually more personality / culture fit and systems type questions.

    It's a marathon so be prepared, but the questions are reasonable, just talk out loud to explain your thought process.
