    Interview

    Initially gave them my resume at a university career fair. I was asked to interview with them on campus that Friday. Second time I had interviewed with them and they asked the same questions as the first time. Neither time did they hire me. I thought I had done well in the interview, especially the second time, but there must have been a better candidate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at National Instruments (Austin, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The campus interviewer had a hardware background and he hammered me with hardware questions which were difficult for a computer science student. When I muddled through them, the interviewer mentioned that he was impressed I was able to handle new subject material. My point in mentioning that is just that the campus interviews are limited by the people they have on hand, and were more difficult than they needed to be.

    When I got to the on site interviews, my interviewers were all software engineers. Their questions tended to be reminiscent of what I've experienced at other companies.

    Interview Questions

    • Given a binary tree with colored nodes, write an algorithm which will count how many contiguous chunks of color are in the tree.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I actually haven't accepted yet, but I'm considering the offer. There was no negotiation phase, they just assigned me a salary based on my experience and education.
