Interview

Applied online on college university career site. Was scheduled for an in-person interview on campus. The interview consisted of two rounds (each with different interviewers): one that asked a programming/algorithms question, and one that asked an object-oriented/system design type question. Both were an hour long.

Interview Questions

  • How would you design an elevator using OOP principles?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Vistaprint.

    Interview

    After a headhunter sent my application, a recruiter from the company contacted me. In the next couple of weeks, I went through a technical phone interview and an onsite interview. During the onsite interview, each interviewer brought a few sheets of prepared questions/problems with them and without wasting any time, dived right into the technical quizzes.

    • Object oriented designs, implementations; Some common data structure questions.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vistaprint.

    Interview

    One day with two back to back, hour long interviews. Both were extremely hands-on. The first asked how you would solve a problem and you had to explain in words and draw on a whiteboard. The second asked you to write out code on a sheet of paper while the interview watched as you wrote every line.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Lexington, MA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Recently worked with a corporate recruiter hiring in the very earliest phase of interviewing.

    The recruiter did his homework, was very thorough, and empathetically understood my position, current position, commute, and personality, like no other that I've ever communicated with in the last 22 years.

    I am looking but not ready technically to handle myself in a rigorous interviewing process so we both decided to wait some time for me to come up to speed.

    Interview

    Emailed a recruiter and he replied over a month later around April. Had an initial, short interview with him that was a simple screening. Nothing technical. Was passed on to the next round where I had two, one-hour interviews. First was an object-oriented design problem and the second was a coding problem.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected. Just wasn't focused during the time of the interview. The coding problem involved finding the number of sheets required to print an array of objects.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Vistaprint in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through a career fair and received two one hour interviews back to back. The questions were pretty simple on the outset, so it was mostly a test of one's thinking process and thoroughness. The interviews were almost entirely answering coding questions. There wasn't strictly a behavioral portion; just a chance to ask the interviewers about their positions. Be prepared to mention what projects you've worked on, though.

    Interview Questions

    • Design an elevator shaft using object oriented programming.   Answer Question
