Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warren, NJ

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Verizon Wireless (Warren, NJ) in October 2017.

Interview

I was the interviewer. I am interested in seeing if they know what is on their resume. To do this, I ask about 30-45 minutes of technical questions about C, Unix and SQL (Oracle) with two or three programming exercises.

Interview Questions

  • On Unix, you have a program that worked fine with your unit testing and in QA and when it got to Production, it crashed horribly in ten hours after processing, say ten million requests. How do you approach such a situation?   Answer Question
  • "I am sorry for asking such an elementary question but we have to ask" In C, what is the difference between strcpy and memcpy? Have you used memmove? How is that different from memcpy?   Answer Question
  • In Unix, what are some ways to communicate between two processes?   Answer Question
  • Have you dealt with alignment? Given a structure:
    struct {
        char c;
        int ii;
    } var;

    how big is var?   Answer Question
  • Have you dealt with swapping when sending data between little endian and big endian machines? Where?   Answer Question
  • Here are two tables, please write a select statement that will pull these columns from that table and those columns from this table. How would the query change if we needed an outer join?   Answer Question
  • On Unix, you just downloaded a few hundred files from another system to a new directory and the names are all upper case. You want to rename all the files to lower case. You want to keep the contents of the files the same but change the names to lower case. What do you do?   Answer Question
  • I always ask, we need a C function to do some string manipulation. We just moved from another system, where this was part of the standard library and it is not there on this system. Here is the prototype, please implement this for us. The exact details change but it involves adding and/or removing strings from an input string. If you have done much C string manipulation, it won't cause any trouble. If not, you will crash and burn and it will be very obvious.   Answer Question

    There were two rounds.
    1. Phone interview, mainly checking to see if you're normal. There were few questions about why a Verizon position would interest you plus confirming job preferences IT or engineering.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Verizon Wireless in February 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a phone interview and then again two HR interviews, one on phone and the next was in person, one on one. This process itself took about four weeks and very long waits.

    Later they scheduled a group interview with some of the team members and questions were general It questions to questions more specific for the position I was being interviewed for.
    My experience is that they were not very well prepared for the interview themselves and did not have a very clear understanding of their own requirements. Not well organized and I am still waiitng to hear from them.
    Let's see how long this takes!
