    Software Engineer New Grad Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Step 1: Coding Assignment

    Step 2: First Interview -- this was a phone call, and not too difficult -- it's to see how well you logically solve through a problem.

    Step 3: Second Interview -- this was another phone call, and a much harder data structures question. I am not sure how I answered, but it was definitely dynamic programming. Practice with Leetcode or Cracking the Coding Interview.

    Step 4: On-site Interview -- they fly you out to Seattle, unless you live there. Several interviews are conducted to see if you fit in the role you are specifically applying for.

    Overall, they are very transparent throughout the process and flexible around your time schedule.

    Interview Questions

    • Array Hopper, Dynamic Programming question, String question, HTML/CSS & JavaScript assignment, and Fullstack Drawing Board Question.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Took an online coding exam, I believe through HackerRank. They gave three hours for the exam. The problem statement seemed clear, but I found out later I was docked for (what I believed to be) odd and poorly-articulated edge cases on possible input. But the feedback was pretty thorough and helpful.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a standard dynamic programming question, the bulk of the work (for me) was on writing the method to properly parse all the variations on entries into StdIn.   Answer Question

    The recruiters respond very quick after the campus career fair. I received a coding challenge, which last for 4 hrs. But unfortunately I didn't come up with the optimal solution of the code challenge.

    Interview

    Applied online and was sent a 60 minute online coding challenge, which was fairly difficult. I thought I tested all possible test cases, but I was sent a rejection email a few days later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whitepages.

    Interview

    Got the email asking to finish the coding challenge. Fairly straightforward DP problem - array hopper. Finish the question within 45mins. Passed all the test cases and I also did some tests using my own test scenarios. The codes were refactored and provided with comments about explaining my ideas. and the next day got a rejection letter saying that I didn't meet the criteria. I'm sure my algorithm is correct but still get rejection. totally waster of time for applications.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    i was contacted by one of the executives and then invited for a visit. i would say the recruiter is friendly and the office is very impressive. the executive took 15 minutes to give a big picture of business and technologies of the company. the communication is smooth and productive. then i have been introduced to an engineering manager and all negative experience starts: 1) do not feel be respect during the whole conversation; 2) that guy is definitely not a technical person; 3) the interview turns to be a completely personal-show of his "deep" knowledge even his question/solution is completely flawed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Whitepages.

    Interview

    Onsite interview, really nice place. There were four people interviewed me and the questions were getting harder, but not super hard. I met searching team and mobile team. People are nice around there. I learned a lot during the interview. They called me about three or four hours after the interview of the result.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whitepages in November 2013.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews. The first went well enough to bump me up a tier in terms of the position they were considering me for (from new grad position to machine learning engineer), but the second interviewer then judged me based on my education and didn't believe I could be qualified for the position the first interviewer deemed me qualified for. Rather than putting me back in for the job I had originally applied for, they simply discontinued the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • New grad questions were standard and rather simple. Machine Learning questions were much more narrow and specific to the field.   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whitepages in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for Software Engineer Internship position and got call from the recruiter in 2 weeks. I was asked to finish a online coding challenge. I cleared the first round and then was scheduled 2 skype interviews. Each interview was one hour long back to back interviews. I was asked to do some coding and design problems. Then we discussed about my previous experience and my projects. The interviewers were very nice and the whole process went very smooth. I got my offer in a week.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I did a coding question at the career fair, which was easy. I think the staff was pretty satisfied with my answer and then I was invited to visit their office, followed by a coding challenge about a week later. I was rejected after the coding challenge even though I passed all the tests.
