Software Engineer New Grad Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA) in January 2015.

Interview

I applied at the careers webpage and two weeks later, I got an email from the HR team, asking me to take an online test. The online test comprised of an online challenge, which I solved. After a week, the HR contacted me to schedule a Skype Interview with a couple of its Engineers. But the immediate next day, I got an email saying the position had been filled and they could not move on with me in the application process.

    Interview

    I applied to Whitepages through LinkedIn and got a call. I was asked to complete an online coding challenge. Test cases were made to run and my code passed all the test cases. I expected to make it to the next round since my code passed all test cases. A week later, I got a reject via email. No skill test or no phone interview took place.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Whitepages in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to Whitepages through a recruiter with my resume. Afterwards, I was asked to complete an online coding challenge. Waited a couple weeks after my submission and told me I made it to the next round. Had two technical phone interviews. For each interview, asked some technical CS questions and gave a programming problem at the end. I thought I did well in the second interview, but I received an email one week later saying they were not moving on with my application. Overall experience was fine. Interviewers were friendly and cordial.

    Interview

    Arrayhopper question over HackerRank before an interview with anyone. I was told that some of "their" test cases didn't pass my code and I was rejected. After a long time I was given their test cases and what I found was that their interpretation of the problem is different from mine. Remember, you can only print out indices that you can actually go to, not ones you consider going to. So, if the test case is [2 0], you output "0, out" and NOT "0, 2, out" even though you considered the value 2. You can ONLY output indices which is not very clear based on the problem statement. In that case, you can't go to 2, but you do consider it, so it's only "0, out." You can go "beyond the array" with only considering 2. Most of the misinterpretations stem from " Once you can legally hop beyond the last array element, you have successfully traversed the array." What does beyond the last array element mean? It doesn't mean simply the last array element like a real ArrayHopper question, but actually arraysize+1. Also what brings up confusion is "If there is no solution, the program should write the string “failure” to the standard output stream, followed by a newline character." Well, what exactly is no solution? If it gets stuck? If you can't reach arraysize+1? The company is setting up software engineers for failure by not providing all of the test cases on HackerRank at compilation time. There are too many possibilities and it is difficult when only one example in the problem statement and two example test cases are actually given. Also keep note that if you click "run code" twice, you get all 15 test cases and not just the two sample ones. I failed too many test cases because I didn't understand the index issue and was rejected. "Performance is paramount for our company" and so on. Well, if you made the problem more clear I would have passed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    One coding challenge, two phone interviews and finally onsite. The interviewers were really nice and they wanted to know how you think and solve a problem, thus the questions were focusing on some fundamental concepts in CS and some open-end problems. The experience of the interview was really positive, it was like discussing with colleagues to solve a given problem.

    Interview

    First round was an online coding challenge on HackerRank. I can't disclose the questions as I signed an NDA. I passed the online test so two technical rounds were scheduled. Unfortunately I had an accident and was on bed rest for the next two months. When I recovered enough to take the interviews and requested the HR for interview dates I received a mail saying they had moved on with other candidates, I was disappointed with their response. Even though they were supportive during my recovery I didn't understand their reasons for not continuing the application process.

    Interview

    I didn't like the interview process because they asked a programming question on phone without using any online editor or programming tool . Interviewer explained the question on phone and asked me to answer the question on phone. Firstly I didn't understand the question and by the time I understood the time was running out and was about to finish.
