Lead interview questions shared by candidates
How would you handle a "biting situation" in the toddler room?1 Answer
Make sure that the child who was continuously biting was given age appropriate teething toys. Also be sure that the child was busy and engaged in an activity. If biting persisted, I would redirect child and try to engage fully in a new learning center.
What would you do if management asks you to approve a release with critical defects?2 Answers
Decline to release and ask if I can have time to fix the defects
No, We should not release the application with critical defects. Make sure the management team how the impact of the critical defects in the application without fixing and quality of the product not guaranteed.
How do you handle multiple tasks that all have a deadline.1 Answer

room, desk and car which do you clean first22 Answers
desk room car
My reply to the interviewer would be: It depends on where I am spending the most of my time and which would have the greatest visibility to visitors or customers. If we are talking about work desk, then that gets cleaned first. If it is simply a home office desk versus the living room, the living room gets it first. If I use the car to often transport customers, then that gets my attention first. I want to try to make sure first impressions are good ones.
What makes you think any of the three are not clean already?
Are these things mine or someone else?
Depends on where i am now.
Room-need to sleep well to do well at work.
Car - in case interviewer walks me to mine after the interview. Although, if the interview is at my place of work (especially my home office), the desk & the room get equal attention - the car is hidden in the garage. Context does matter
Actually, I would clean out a closet first, so I would have room to store all the stuff I want to save out of my room, desk, and car.
This depends on your level of priority. If you let me know which is more important to the company then I could answer that question.
Me: Car, at least I can remember a time that it was clean and work my way back to it.
1. Depends on what you need to be cleaned first. Period. 2. I just cleaned my car. My room and desk are already clean.
Depends on which thing requires what amount of time, choose the task first, you can do in less time, so you can say you've accomplished something if asked some time later. Desk first, then room, then car.
This question is designed to test the divergence of your thinking. They never mentioned the size or the material from which your stapler was made from. Maybe the stapler is 50 feet long and made of gold? Perhaps made of copper? Notice the repetitiveness of the answers posted. Expect the same in interview sessions from one candidate to the next. Always answer in a way you know they wouldn't expect you to answer. That'll leave your mark.
ALL these oddball questions are designed to test the divergence of your thinking (to throw you off guard, see how well you think on your feet, etc) It truly is a chance to make your mark... how many times do you look back and say "oh, if only I had thought to say..." These questions are SO much more fun to answer anyway, and give you a chance to be a bit humorous, unexpected, or even serious - but it helps you to approach even the standard questions (asked by inexperienced and uncreative interviewers) with some new life!
Depends on which day of the week. If it's a Friday, I would clean up my Desk before I leave the office, so I get a clean desk on Monday morning. Then my room and on Saturday or Sunday my car. If it's in the mid of the week, then, my room, car and Desk.
1. desk - I get in regular contact with it with my hands. It also makes logical sense to clean it before the room since some dust/debris may fall on the floor. 2. room - I either spend most of my time in it or sleep in it. Enough said. 3. car - It doesn't get dirty fast because I don't eat, drink, smoke or store junk in it. Floor cleanliness does not adhere to the same standards as the house since it's being entered from the outside.
If they were ever dirty (highly unlikely) my first thought would be to start with whichever one was closest to you at the time you needed to clean it. Probably your room. If you clean your room, you'll have clean clothes for work and can find what you need to take to work (or your interview). If you clean your car next, the clothes you put on the next day for work (or your interview) will stay clean and you will have a place to put any of the things you take with you so you have easy access to them. So room comes before car. Now comes the tricky part. Did you just get hired? If so, the desk would come last, the minute you get to it. If not, the desk comes first. Clean it before you leave for the day so it is ready for you and looks spick and span for the company.
whichever is the dirtiest and whichever is more likely to be seen by an outsider....
Taking assumptions: Room- my office room where I spend 8 hrs. of my life everyday Desk- my work desk inside my office room Then my order would follow like car-room-desk B'coz I sit inside the car everyday to go to my office, then enter to my room and sit on my desk infront of my computer to work... I feel cleanliness and how you keep your surrounding area reflects your personality and working style. If you can't keep things in-order and in-appropriate way then how can one expect you to work in timely and orderly manner..!
Room, desk, car
The operative word is Clean. Having the need to clean implies having not maintained the original state and would also imply a lack of attention to the need to maintain the original clean or new state. A lack of periodic attention to the detailing of ones Desk, Room or the Car might imply being lazy or lacking in detail. Apply the Desk, Car, Room to any aspect of your daily responsibilities.
Car first, then desk and finally room. Why? Because anything removed from the car will end up in the bin, on the desk or in the room. SImilarly, stuff on the desk will end up in the room so why clean the room first when it is going to end up with the dirt from the other places and have to be re-cleaned
Most of the technical questions focused on power supply design. For this position this is a one of the more difficult tasks so they want to know how switching regulators work and different trade offs involved.5 Answers
can you please post the questions?
Number of different questions regarding power supplies such as: Describe how buck regulator works? What effects efficiency? Describe effect on output when step response on load occurs.
Buck regulator is easy to design. A switch, a diode and an inductor with bypass/decoupling capacitors at input and output Efficiency = load power/ total power Effect of step on output will be overshoot, ripples, before it settle down to actual voltage level. What were your answers? Was there any other questions asked regarding digital design?
What you said is correct but they are more interested in you showing that you understand how those work togeather - ie how the currents are fllowing and what actually effects efficency. For the switchers they use in there design they are using syncrounous switchers in polyphase designs. These are concerned with getting every last bit of efficency out of a design at the minimum space usage and lowest cost. Your efficency will be dictacted by your choise of mosfets (rds vs gate charge), switching frequency, inductor loss and copper loss. The most important thing is to demonstrate that your understanding all of this like it is second nature.
Thank for the response. What kind of questions were asked regarding GPU's and/or PC architecture?
2. Swap the two values (int A=5 and int B=3), w/o using a 3rd attribute(so you cant use the 3rd attribute to store the value as a temporary storage).3 Answers
first you do A= A*B, next you divide B=A/B and finally A= A/B.
A = A+B B = A-B A = A-B
Both previous answers are theoretically correct, yet buggy. 'A' could potentially overflow due to (A+B) or (A*B). Therefore, the best method is to use the 'xor' operator. A ^= B; B ^= A; A ^= B;
None. HR could not answer ONE question.3 Answers
How much money were you asking for?
10% more than I currently make. Very reasonable considering 20% is common. The position also required a lot more in terms of support for 4 campuses and 24 hour and weekend on call. What did the HR person offer as a benefit or highlight of joining NYP? That Dr. Oz works there -- not kidding you.
You can look at the salaries for IS Project Lead here ( there are 7 posted). I think that should give you an idea of what the pay range for the position is.
