Software Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TripAdvisor.

Interview

Gave resume at career fair, got emailed for a phone interview about a month later. 30-45 minute phone interview, asking how to merge two sorted lists in linear time. Interviewer seemed to be just a regular guy, wasn't a bad experience.

Question:
Merge two sorted lists (of ints) in linear time. Make sure to account for possible duplicates. The way to answer it is like how you sort lists in mergesort. (In other words, if x[0]>y[0], list_to_be_returned[0]=x[0], x=x[1:] and repeat.)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TripAdvisor.

    Interview

    Phone interview, ask about experience and background. Then asked me to implement a merge sort. About a week later, I was given a homework problem to do over the weekend, which was writing a console program that allows user to sort data according to their specifications. A week after that they informed me that I did not pass the homework problem.
