    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Needham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TripAdvisor (Needham, MA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Phone screening: ~25 minutes spent talking about my resume, with 30 minutes dedicated to a technical question and 5 minutes for questions. Took them two days to get back to me.

    Take-home programming task: I spent the majority of this time working on code design and tests. Got a response in two days.

    Accelerated on-site schedule: 2 technical interviews followed by a behavioral interview over lunch. Got a response the next day (although I did ask for an accelerated schedule to counter a separate offer - speed won in this case!)

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TripAdvisor (Newton, MA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    I'm a new grad, I sent them a CV and after two phone interviews I was flown in for a day of technical tests at the Newton Offices.

    The two phone interviews were fairly straight forward, one of which was to implement StringBuilder in Java, rigorous on site interviews in which i talked to 6 different people, each of which made me solve whiteboard problems.

    Overall positive experience, fast replies and generally fast process. They focus on the computer science core so brush up on algorithms and data structures.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TripAdvisor (Worcester, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a staffing for DaoDao team and did an online assessment on codility. Two question: Algorithm and SQL. And follow up with a phone interview after a week. The phone interview only contains 1 problem, search how many squares in the graph. And if you haven't meet this problem before, you may know the answer. I tried hard and finally gave out a general solution which will take O(n^4) time complexity. The interviewer seems not listening when I'm trying to solve it. And they finally said they want to focus on senior role currently.
