Excited and very interested to work with your company

Alpha EMC

They seemed put off when they found out. the project I currently work on pays about 2 .5 times what they were offering . I mentioned that I get 0.54 cents per mile to and from work since my company doesn't have a local office to provide me a truck. They say they reimburse gas and pay for oil changes and allow $ 500 per year for tires. I don't know what kind of tires you can get for that price. My F-150 uses tires that start at around $800 a set. Questions led me to believe that this is another bad company trying to find people who are desperate for work . I have worked for at least three contractors who promised such reimbursements , none have ever honored their agreement.

I just told them about previous work that met their requirements.

I used a company credit card at the other companies. Often they don't work because someone athe company put the wrong pin in more than once and locked everyone with a company credit card out for sometimes as long as a day. At least that is what these companies claimed when the card was declined. They all say to keep receipts and fax or send photo of bill with your phone for reimbursement. Still waiting on quite a few gas and hotel bills to be paid nearly one year laterin some cases. Less

In regard to company HR response .

1000 small cubes are made into one cube and painted and now taken apart then how many small cubes don't have paint on all three sides?

2 Answers

512 without paint

Question asking how many small cubes without paint on three sides = the answer is 992. The big cube is 10 x 10 x 10. Only the small cubes at the corner (8 corners) get painted on three sides. Rest are either 0, 1, 2 sides painted. In sum, 1000 - 8 = 992 small cubes have less than 3 sides painted. Less

I was asked if i was single or had a boyfriend?

I actually said i would prefer not to say as i felt it wasnt necessary. The interview was nothing to do with the role and the two managers interviewing me, made me fell very uncomfortable. Less

Totally inappropriate, and illegal.

Schrödinger

Describe your knowledge related to the position? How can you use your knowledge to address the problem. Why to you want to work here?

2 Answers

I did good. I am an expert on the subject coming from the materials science department at Argonne National Lab doing cutting edge research in this field. I had every qualification they where looking for in terms of energy storage expertise and simulation ability other than mastery of machine learning. They still did not give me even the 3rd level of interview. Less

I might add that if you apply be cautious about revealing to much about exactly what you are researching and how you would solve their problems. It is possible interviews are being conducted with no intention of hiring. Protect your hard earned knowledge! Less

Not so much difficult as unexpected - he wrote down 4 2's on a piece of paper and asked what you could do with them to make the largest number.

3 Answers

2^(2^22) is bigger than all of those

If you only get two 2's I don't see what you could do other than 2^2...? I would really like to know what the answer to this is if anyone has ideas. Less

Maybe take (2 x 2) ! = 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 ...? Is that even allowed? I don't know.
