    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Playspan (Foster City, CA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone conversation with HR. She asked general programming theoretical questions and my interests. She then set up my onsite after a couple of weeks.
    Initially according to the schedule I got I had to meet 4 people on various teams and 1HR at the end of the day. But when I reached there, the main person who was hiring for the team I was interested in was busy that day and didn't get a chance to interview me. I felt that was the main reason why I received a reject from there.
    few of the questions-
    difference between Get and Post?
    Calculating checksum.
    basic SQL joins and sub queries
    questions on finding depth of tree, basic idea behind circular linked list

    Interview Questions

    • The last interviewer gave me a really tough time. I was not able to communicate properly to him at first.. could not understand what he was talking, also his phone rang three times in the middle of the interview while I was solving a question.. and he picked up.. that was so annoying. I was disappointed with Playspan. He asked me about pre-processing of stored data, basically indexing really large data set and some very complicated SQL queries.

      After this round I had decided that I wont accept the offer even if I was presented one.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Playspan (Foster City, CA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Playspan is acquired by Visa now. I applied online. I got the call from hiring manager after few weeks. He asked bunch of questions about project management and QA processes. There are some database questions too. He was asking some indirect questions (like what year you finished your college) to find out my age. Is it legal to ask for the age -- directly or indirectly?

    Interview

    Internal recruiter approached me on LinkedIn and wanted to have a phone conversation. We talked on the phone after a couple days where he had some pre-set questions about just know certain terms. Example: name some sorting algos, name some design patterns, etc.
