Data Analyst at Capital One was asked...

Nov 8, 2010
 Case interview: basic business problem (if product X costs Capital One \$4.00 per unit, with a \$800 sunk cost, and we charge X amount of dollars along with a \$10 annual fee, how many do we need to sell to break even, etc). Followed by a longer discussion of more complex problems that the situation might entail.7 AnswersMostly algebra, basic economics, and common sense.total cost= 4x + 800 total income= x^2 + 10x to break even: 4x + 800 = x^2 + 10x solving for x by evaluating the quadratic equation above, x ~= 25.45 To break even, 26 units must be soldWhy is x^2?Show More ResponsesErin - it probably shouldn't be. The Revenue side should be (unit price + 10) * number of units sold. Dapo has assumed that unit price and number of units sold is the same since the letter X is used to describe both variables. That might be correct, but it would be an odd quirk of the question - I'd bet that you can ask what the unit price is.very good if all 3 of you are interviewing, I can get the position. It doesn't say the annual fee is per product, so you have to assume or ask if it is the case, and if not the # of customer and potential customers estimation. And that x^2 Dapo, did you pass the online test?How is it possible to answer this without knowing the selling price per product? # of quantities to sell in order to breakeven depends on how much the selling price per product is? Since the selling price says X, you can sell it for \$790 and breakeven by just selling 1 product (\$790 per product + \$10 annual fee (assuming it's per product)). But I may be misunderstanding the information provided. Any feedback?Actually, to correct the above response, if the selling price for 1 product is \$794 (to cover the cost price of the product itself (\$4) ), only 1 quantity needs to be sold. (\$794 + \$10) = (\$800 + \$4).

Front End Web Developer at Bloomberg L.P. was asked...

Feb 23, 2010
 What is a JavaScript callback function?5 Answers5 vote down star 4 I understand passing in a function to another function as a callback and having it execute, but I'm not understanding the best implementation to do that. I'm looking for a very basic example, like this: var myCallBackExample = { myFirstFunction : function( param1, param2, callback ) { // Do something with param1 and param2. if ( arguments.length == 3 ) { // Execute callback function. // What is the "best" way to do this? } }, mySecondFunction : function() { myFirstFunction( false, true, function() { // When this anonymous function is called, execute it. }); } }; In myFirstFunction, if I do return new callback(), then it works and executes the anonymous function, but that doesn't seem like the correct approach to me.I don't think Bloomberg is a very good company. I am an excellent web developer and have gotten multiple offers from other companies with big names, but was rejected by Bloomberg. They are too demanding during the job interview and it becomes a game of how well you can interview as opposed to how talented an employee you are and how much you can contribute to the growth of the company.A callback function is a piece of JavaScript code that executes after the main function that the callback is attached to executes successfully.Show More Responsesudaykanth, I would say that a .forEach() would be the most common and most basic use of a callback function. I'm just writing this to help anyone that might have a hard time thinking up a quick example if the come across this question themselves. Example: var numArray = [ 1, 2, 3 ] ; numArray.forEach( function( i ) { console.log( arr[ i - 1 ] ) } ) ; // logs out // 1 // 2 // 3Is there a front end role at bloomberg. I guess your position must have been labelled software dev right? altho ur a dront end dev

Customer Service at Wells Fargo was asked...

Mar 20, 2009
 Pretend I need to buy a pen, and your company sells pens. Why should I buy your pen?3 AnswersI described the look and feel of the pen. How it was about the same price as the competition, but it was a better quality and would last longer and therefore save them money in the long run when they wouldn't need to replace it as quickly.While this pen is slightly more expensive, it is of higher quality craftsmanship. It will not blot or leak like other pens tend to do and is most comfortable in your hand.Because you need one
