Software Engineer Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Splunk in October 2017.

Interview

Recruiter was supposed to call me. First time missed and rescheduled, second time missed again. Had the number wrong in interview request after saying what it was twice so assuming said recruiter dialed the wrong number both times. Ridiculous.

    Interview

    The second Indian guy's accent was too bad. The first and the last interviewer is good. I like them. But the second Indian guy made me very unhappy and his attitude is not very good and even a little distant.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Splunk (Berkeley, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I went to my University's career fair, and talked for a relatively long time (~15 minutes) with a Senior Engineer. About 3 weeks later, I got a call from Splunk detailing an interview date and time. They were flexible with the interview time.

    The interview was over phone. There was muddled sound and I found it difficult to understand the interviewer. The interviewer gave questions over a code-sharing website. Awkward silences over the phone made it difficult to concentrate on the questions; when combined with the fact that this was my first interview of the year, I wasn't able to answer many questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions on semaphores and mutexes. Questions on parsing non-punctuated strings into valid IPs.   Answer Question
