    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you speak Japanese?   1 Answer
    • Why do you want to work here?   1 Answer

    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.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Works Applications (Shanghai, Shanghai (China)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    1. Online assessment. You'd submit solutions of several problems like any online judgement system.
    2. Online live-coding. You'd have a video interview with an engineer. You have 2 problems to solve and it is very similar to the previous OA part except that you need to communicate with the engineer in English. Expressing your thinking clearly is very important.
    3. On-site internship (5 days). It very likely would take you more than 5 days' time so be sure that you have enough time to do this.

    R&D Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Delhi (India)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy. They gave about 2 questions which to students in our University we had to do a least 1. I did 2. Was called for an interview at New Delhi where I had one round and one aptitude test.

    This was followed by a skype round centered around design and mainly software design. This was followed by an HR interview.

    The interview was fairly okay but the post interview has been a complete horror. They took more than 5 months to come up with an offer letter and were vague about the location and the pay after promising the Singapore and the 6 Million Yen pay(anywhere).

    Bad company. Really bad recruiters. Company isn't clear about anything. Half an year has passed since the job was offered but the location isn't known neither is the salary. They aren't even clear if they can fly us to the city where work starts.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Works Applications (Shanghai, Shanghai (China)).

    It consists of 4 stages of interviews.
    1. Online programming test
    2. Live programming test
    3. 5-day internship
    4. Aptitude test & Math test

    The 5-day internship is a worth joining interview, you can learn more about the company's goals and styles by the staff demonstration and completing the given tasks. The HR staff are very helpful and caring.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Works Applications (Taipei (Taiwan)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview for new graduate would have three rounds.
    The first round is an online assessment (three hours for two problems). Normally, one problem would be difficult to answer all right, and the other would be easier. However, candidates don't need to have full scores to enter the next round. In this years, I heard people who got 50 (total is 200) still enter to the next round.
    The second round is live coding. Candidates would sit in front of the interviewer to solve the problems. The problem is much easier in this round (about easy level in Leetcode, maybe one would be at medium level).
    The third round is complicated. They called it 'internship'. It's like five days hackathon. You need to create a product and write down the concept. The mentor would review the document and you need to revise it accordingly. Then you implement the code. They would decide who can get the offer in the last day of the internship. However, the candidates would be paid and be placed at the hotel (for free) during these five days.

    Interview Questions

    • In the second round, live coding, I was asked about three questions.
      First, write the code to decide if two trees are the same.
      Second, write the code to check if the tree is symmetric.
      Third, I forgot it, but it's the easiest one of the permutation problems.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Works Applications (Singapore (Singapore)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    There was an on-site coding assessment, almost like a pair programming session. There are two questions which last for an hour altogether. Interviewers were friendly with occasional sprinkles of encouragement. However, there wasn't an opportunity to ask back questions after you're done, for example, to learn about the culture, etc.
