Software Engineer Intern Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Workiva (Tempe, AZ) in October 2013.

Interview

WebFilings came to my school's career fair, and I happened to give my resume to one of the recruiters at their booth. They contacted me a couple of days later about scheduling an interview for the following week. My interview was conducted by two men, one of whom seemed to be a manager. They started by asking about my resume and reviewing some of my experience. They asked me why I was interested in technology and software, they asked about some of my relevant coursework, and they asked about my extracurriculars. This lasted about 15 minutes, and then they launched into a technical interview that lasted for about 45 minutes. The first two questions weren't bad at all, and I finished them pretty quickly, but the third was pretty confusing, and I asked questions for a good five minutes before trying to solve it. Once they could tell I was struggling with the programming, they changed topics a little bit and asked more general computer science questions. I got an email a week later that was pretty cryptic. It didn't say that they were pursuing other candidates, it just said that they had assembled a team of qualified candidates, and that they invited me to visit their jobs page. I found that pretty strange... I expected them to tell me at least somewhat explicitly that I wouldn't be interviewing again. Instead, they didn't say anything about it, and it came off as pretty passive.

Interview Questions

  • I was asked to write a program that would sort elements based on different keys. Each element would have a certain number of keys, and each key would contain a different data type. They wanted a function that would sort the elements based on whichever key was specified in the arguments.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Workiva (Bozeman, MT) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted through university career fair. The first round of technical interview was conducted over phone. It was relatively easy and I aced it. Soon after, I got an onsite interview call.

    The onsite interview was in two on one format. They started with a Java code review where I was asked to provide criticism and pitfalls with a given code and a corresponding requirements.

    I was then asked two more technical questions where I had to write code myself. The questions were "seen it all before" type, so I won't elaborate on them. I will discuss two questions which challenged (relatively and not really that hard) me most.

    I eventually got a mail mentioning they will not go ahead with me which somehow made to my junk folder. I am pretty sure it's due to reasons other than my technical abilities, but I won't discuss on that here.
