Customer solutions interview questions shared by candidates
A customer has a website containing information about hotels, their rates, special deals etc. how would you extract info from the website without any programming involved like writing SQL queries, PHP etc.
I would say use some sort of bot to scrape html but how can we extract anything without "any programming"?
Were there any data-structures/algorithms questions?
I have used YQL (Yahoo Query Language) in the past to extract data from html pages.
Not difficult, per se, but unexpected: one interviewer asked me to name several different sorting algorithms and rank them by their computational complexity. Unexpected because I've never had such a discussion with a customer, no matter how technical; the question would have been more appropriate for an engineer being hired into their kernel group but the interviewers didn't seem to know the difference.
He kept asking if I could go back and redo my answer what would I change. Asked that at least 4 times. Asked me if i was starting a parachute company for blind solo skydivers, how would I sell it and what special features would it need? Also asked me to explain rugby ( my college sport) to him. Asked em to sell him on my favorite hobby.
