Easy Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PlayStation (San Francisco, CA) in Oct 2015

Interview

5 rounds, 4 for coding, 1 for behavioral. Coding test is simple though I didn't get this offer, should be careful they are very sensitive with performance, like saving bytes, avoiding delay. What's ridiculous is they didn't reimburse the trip expense to save money I guess. So there are risks when they invite you to fly to the office.

Interview Questions
  • read4, hashing, garbage collector design, busy waiting for full command queue etc.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at PlayStation (San Mateo, CA) in Oct 2015

Interview

Position was a 6 month contract to hire. Phone screen by hiring manager then 2 hour on-site interview with team. Phone screen and on site, in my opinion, went well. Because white board session was interrupted they sent me home and invited me to complete codility exercise. I declined as not excited about working in C++.

Interview Questions
  • Write on white board, in C++, function to find a string in a string, the strstr() function.
