    Interview

    I interviewed through college recruiting. First round interview was really easy, he just asked me to implement a queue and test it for certain conditions. Then I flew to Seattle for the final round where I had to go through 4 back to back interviews. The interviews were mostly technical, but 4 hours of technical interview really gets to your nerves.
