Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2017.

Interview

I was lucky to get an interview through a company recruiter as a result of applying for a software engineer position via their website. The recruiter called me about about a month later and arranged for me to have an on-site interview which was scheduled a week
ahead. I was interviewed by 4 very technical engineers and the interview lasted for 4 1/2 hours. The interview was made up of programming questions, designs questions and a
discussion of my work over a long period since I have been in the industry a long time.
some of their questions.

Interview Questions

• 1. Given a binary tree, find the path from leaf node to leaf node such that the values of nodes in between are the maximum. The interviewer was interested more the maximum sum than the path itself.

2. Write/describe algorithm to re-sort a rotated sorted array with O(1) complexity.

3. Given an array of integers design an algorithm to return the sum of all integers in a given range with O(1) complexity. So, sum(i1, i2) returns sum of all integers i1 - i2. No for() loops.
Now, how would you do it if the array were 2 dimensional?
4. Merge 2 link lists. So, if the linked lists are L1 and L2, the resultant list will be L1->next = L2, L2->next = L1(original)->next; ... They may not have the same number of elements.   1 Answer

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at NetApp (Sunnyvale, CA) in May 2017.

Interview

2 phone interviews, both with the hiring manager. Standard interview questions with behavioral/situational focus. After that, I was brought onsite and had two 45-minute interviews with other interviewers. Thought the interviews went well for the most part. One of the interviewers (the hiring manager's boss) said I had the perfect background for the position after our interview so I was confused when I got the email that the team is moving forward with candidates with a background that fits the role.
