    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Priceline.com (Norwalk, CT) in July 2017.

    Interview

    It was a short phone interview with HR initially. after that there was a video interview with the lead which was technical for about an hr. It was pretty straightforward and about core java( couple of questions about JVM heap space and Exceptions).

     I drove down to Norwalk for face to face. The first interview was with couple of engineers of which one of them was too annoying. I tried to explain the complexity of the problem he gave but he was too uptight/dimwit to understand my explanation and rude. I mentioned a for loop inside a for is not always N^2 complexity, it will be N1*N2 where N1 is the iterations in the 1st for loop and N2 in the 2nd for loop(For ex, if N2=2 then the problem complexity is 2N1 i.e., linear). In my scenario N2 was variable and N1*N2 was turning out to be constant O(N). Anyway, I learned my lessons for a future interview.

    The worse part was the HR sending a rejection email and not replying when asked for expenses. I ended up paying for the stay and travel myself. Like really, what would you gain out of saving 100-200 bucks ?. I am one who usually takes stuff in stride and not vent frustration but I thought at the end of it how they dealt with everything was pretty cheap

HR team is very friendly and good thru out the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Priceline.com (Norwalk, CT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with the recruiter and an in person with the recruiter, VP of HR, and the self identified "mayor" aka Director of External Reporting - each for 45 minutes.

    The mayor spent 30 minutes talking about finishing a project before she can work in Amsterdam for 6 months. She went into great logistical detail about turning her 2 bedroom condo into a 1 bedroom condo and locking her things up so she can rent it out. She was concerned that someone wouldn't want to rent it out for 6 months. She also doesn't believe she should pay for her rent while working in Amsterdam and wants the company to pick up that bill. A fellow colleague is currently going through internal mobility so she is hoping he can give her some answers. For the last 15 minutes she asked if I had questions, I attempted to steer the conversation back to the role and given her finance background, I asked about one of the role objectives, equality in gender pay. She went on for 15 minutes about there not being a problem and she is a very good negotiator. She believes Priceline pays well and went on for a few minutes about waiting for the current controller to leave or retire before she can get promoted.

    After that interview I waited 1.5 weeks with follow up emails just to get ghosted. The recruiting coordinator sent me 2 system Jobvite rejection notices for the wrong job as well as sent me an email and referenced the wrong job.

    Interview

    It was a long interview. This was an interview where they don't really care about getting to know you but how fast and well you can answer difficult or curveball questions. They had me create an imaginary itinerary which was extremely time consuming and was not even discussed during the interview- the woman just took it.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Priceline.com (Norwalk, CT).

    Interview

    First a phone interview with multiple people, asking mostly CS101 questions. The recruiter got in touch immediately after the phone interview and scheduled an onsite interview. I had to do an online coding test before I came in: all questions can be found in Cracking the Coding Interview or any interview prep resource online.

    The onsite started with the recruiter greeting me in the lobby of Priceline's office in Norwalk, CT. He was extremely friendly and made sure I had water, coffee, etc. There was a delay before the first round started because one of the interviewers wasn't in the office or available; seemed like something that should have been taken care of before I came in. A total of three engineers were present in the first round, two of whom were seemingly dragged into the interview unexpectedly. I was asked a few typical algorithm questions, as well as a SQL question. The interviewers seemed uninterested in interviewing me, and didn't voice any opinions on their work at Priceline; one of them was on his computer most of the time.

    The second round was actually a great experience. I was asked to test a feature the engineers were currently working on. The two engineers who interviewed me were genuinely interested in the product, and made the interview emulate a conversation we would have if I actually worked at Priceline. I learned a lot about what my potential duties at Priceline would be, as well as the product itself.

    Unfortunately, the third round robbed me of any positive thoughts I had about Priceline. The interviewer, who was a higher-up in the engineering department, immediately told me that he hadn't read my resume, and proceeded to ask me whether I was a programmer (a superficial glance at my resume, which was right in front of him, would have been able to answer that). I was taken aback as I do expect some preparation to occur on the end of the interviewer. The interviewer's brusqueness didn't end there: he cut me off whenever I would answer one of his questions (only one of which was technical, all others were brain teasers). The interviewer certainly seemed like he had some expertise in talking down to others, especially those with fewer years of experience.

    After my onsite interview, I was told I would receive an answer in a week because they had other candidates to interview. I never heard back, despite several hours of interviews.
