Average Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Seattle, WA) in June 2016.

Interview

I had a phone screening split into two parts. The first where I was asked Java technical questions and basic concepts such as Overload vs Override, etc. The second part was a little more difficult where I was asked a scenario question for instance what happens if I have a website that is running slow, how can I improve its functionality. It was essentially a trouble shooting question where if this doesn't improve the system what else can be done. In all, it lasted 40 minutes in length.

Interview Questions

  • Actual interview was split into 3 parts. The first one was where I was asked behavioral questions. (What's a project where you demonstrated leadership... etc). The second was technical, I was asked an assortment of Java and SQL questions (abstract class vs. interface and indexing within SQL). The third was just a discussion about what was being done and was generally relaxed in nature.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Walt Disney Company (Seattle, WA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews. The first one was with the recruiter to see what my general background and experience was in the field. The recruiter was trying to find out if I was interested in the position, if I was willing to relocate, and what was my salary expectations.

    The second phone interview was with the senior engineer on the team that I was being interviewed for. He asked me a series of technical questions. He tested my basic knowledge of some software engineering, operating systems, SQL, data structures, algorithms, Linux, and problem solving skills. Though I was unable to complete all the different questions and topics successfully, he was willing to explain to me anything I missed or didn't know. He was quite helpful in informing me of things I couldn't solve and to help me learn from those problems.
