Applications Developer - Business Intelligence was asked...January 23, 2011

What reporting tools have you used? Actuate, Brio, Crystal Reports? How much experience have you had in scheduling jobs on Unix? Can you write XML and implement it?

1 Answers

The interviewer was interested in breath of experience rather than specific technical skill. Unix work with scheduling and XML skills are necessary, but not heavy (the same procedures are done over and over again). Emphasis was on selling yourself through experience. Less

You have 2 light bulbs. You are in multistory building such that if you drop a bulb from a floor of a certain height or higher the bulb will break: for ex: if the bulb will break at a minimum height of 10th floor, then the bulb will break if dropped only if dropped from a floor higher than tenth floor. it will not break if dropped from ninth floor or less. using the two bulbs how will you figure out at which floor will the bulb break?

14 Answers

I forgot to mention that you have to try to figure out the floor in the least amount of tries. so incase the minimum floor is 100, you shouldn't try all the floors. The solution posted above works, but is the least efficient. Less

With 2 bulbs we can skip 3 floors at a time. 1) Drop bulb #1 at floor x 2) If it breaks then try floor x-1 else try floor x+3 Start with floor 1. Less

The issue with a research-based answer is that parameters of the posed problem is not based in reality, i.e. dropping a light bulb from any floor would almost guarantee it breaking in real life. So the interviewer is really looking for problem solving skills for an hypothetical situation rather your attention to detail in a real world situation. Less

11 Answers

I wont give the answer. Hint : know who divides you ;-)

I think 2520 is perfect

Answer is pretty simple: m%10=0 -----case 1 Lets assume n=m-1 Since the remainder is always same , when n is divider by any number from 10 to 1.. n%10 = n%9=.........=1 That means n+1 is completely divisible by all numbers from 10 to 1.. (Since it gives common remainder).. n + 1= Lcm of (1 to 10) = 2520 But we assumed n = m-1, so m -1+1 =m = 2520 Less

Hey, did you hear back from them about the final decision? Also, were u coding in Java or Python? If python, why did they ask you questions on java? Could u share those questions because I have been invited too Less

They ask you what language you feel most comfortable with and ask you questions based on that (I said Java). I haven't heard back but I have been contacted by another recruiter from their Manhattan office so maybe better luck on this second try. Good Luck! Less

Most unexpected question: Describe to me the process and benefits of wearing a seatbelt.

9 Answers

Process: put buckle into socket until it locks. Benefit: your face doesn't become shredded to hell when it goes flying through the windshield in an accident. Less

Process (front seat manual seat belt only for simplicity): Prerequisites: - Be inside car. - Be seated. - Be unbuckled. Step 1: move the hand farthest from your nearest window over your opposite shoulder, reaching just behind the window frame for the belt buckle. Step 2: Grab it and pull your hand across your body in a downward fashion, reaching for the space between your seat and the seat next to you, where you'll find the socket into which the buckle locks. Step 3: Match the hole in the socket with the buckle. It may take some practice. Step 4: CLICK! Benefits (from most to least likely to happen): - Avoiding minor injuries from hitting your head against the windshield when the person driving brakes too hard all of a sudden. - Being able to slide your nail against the side of the belt, making a "swish" noise which will potentially annoy everyone else inside the car, for endless fun. - Achieving a false sense of security. - Avoiding fines for not using it (where applicable). And not having to use one of these: http://static2.stuff.co.nz/1368495490/264/8670264.jpg - If you do end up having a real car crash, you won't have to worry about any nasty sequels, as you'll likely die caught in its relentless grip as your car explodes. - Avoiding dying when the car comes to an abrupt stop after having gathered enough momentum to throw you off through the windshield.
