Interview Question

Senior PHP Developer Interview Falls Church, VA

The common "why do you want to work for our company

 ?". There were very few technical questions. The one that resonated was "what is an inner join in SQL?". Other questions included whether I knew Ext.js and what the most complicated SQL query I ever built was.

Interview Answer

1 Answer


I explained what inner joins do. The interviewer then went out to investigate outer joins. As for the most complex SQL query I've ever written, I couldn't remember it.

Note to interviewers:
1) Check out the candidate's LinkedIn profile BEFORE the interview.
2) Technically screen the candidate well before inviting them over to your building. Here, it would be good to send a few technical exercises in which you gauge their performance. It would be fair for you to make an effort similar to that the candidate makes.
3) Do some research on what you are really looking for.
4) Bring a technical person to ask the technical questions.
