    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Works Applications (Boston, MA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Three interviews and an associative reasoning test in one day - they apparently booted another candidate to make time for me, which I thought was.. Ambitious. Got an offer and one year to think it over in the end.

    Negotiation

    They don't negotiate salary, but you can get relocation if you negotiate. They wanted me to work in Tokyo indefinitely for the proposed salary, so I said "thank you but no" politely and walked away. They came after me a while later saying three years would be fine. We settled at two.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Works Applications.

    Interview

    3 Tests.
    First round is an algorithm test to test your logical and deduction skill. Very straightforward, simply put to test if you're capable of thinking like a computer program does.

    Second round is proposing a solution to a designated problem. You're given about 5 days. This is to test your creativity and imagination.

    The last round is to present your solution to an interviewer. This is to test your communication and presentation skill.

    I only passed the first round and failed the second round so I can't say much about the third round.

    Interview Questions

    • One question is some sort of yes/no flowchart and you're supposed to guide where the arrow suppose to go (e.g. if no go to step x, if yes go to step y)   Answer Question
