Software Engineer Interview

Interview

First off, I applied for 3 positions, 2 stores. They each sent me email links to take an assessment. I clicked on one of the links - the full-time position down the street from me I prefered. I took both parts of the assessment and at the end it said "Thank you for completing your assessment so quickly - you rock!" Yup. Pretty sure it said I would receive an email shortly but I did not receive on. A few days went by and it alarmed me because I was expecting an automated email. Anywho, I got an email about 4 days after completing assessment, looked like it was maybe because I was in the jobs mailing list, that said You're invited to an Open House Information Session at the corporate building for all the metro. It was in a week or so and I had no idea if I received that email as a promotional email or because I passed assessment. Either way, I knew I needed to go and be prepared for an interview just in case. One of my regular customers at work had worked at AT&T recently and was still respected so I had him put in a good word for me. He seemed to really believe in me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at MicroStrategy in March 2014.

    Interview

    Phone screen interview. The interviewer didn't give too much introduction about the company. I was given a coding problem on the screen which has a interface that is very similar to Leetcode. Also the coding problem is from Leetcode I think. You need to finish coding within 20 mins. It is a little uncomfortable if you are not practiced on Leetcode.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MicroStrategy (McLean, VA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacts you fairly quickly and they are normally very friendly. Good follow up process. The process consists of an initial phone screening where you have to do some coding and resolve basic algorithm/design questions. If you pass, you'll be brought to the HQ and will go through a software test (5 problems consisting of algorithms varying in difficulty). After that, you'll have 4-5 interviews (including a lunch one) of about 45 minutes each, where you'll be asked to code on a whiteboard. If you make it to the 5th interview, normally with a senior manager, you'll have good chances of receiving an offer. If you do very bad at your written test, you might be cut earlier.
    After this, you normally will hear back from the recruiter in about 2 weeks to see whether or not you got an offer. Based on your situation, a starting date would be set.
    Everyone is very friendly throughout the process and helpful.

    Interview

    hr contacted to set up a phone interview. A female engineer called and asked basic resume questions and get to know my background. She is pretty decent in speaking although not a native speaker. Then proceeded to an onsite interview. Met three engineers. Two engineers asked easy brain teaser and testing questions. One engineer gave a very hard brain teaser.
