sql question: another random table on shopping carts - find the most recent rows/transactions that use type 8, not type 9; only pull the amount.

1 Answers

Super confusing question. He didn't offer any feedback as I was writing the query - it was a pretty confusing question to begin with. I even said I would have thought most recent would have only meant 1 transaction, but he alleged that there should be two rows in the result. I just said here's the query I'd start with. No idea if it was right. Less


python: write a function that would allow you to type the function(n) to get the number within the Fibonacci sequence.

1 Answers

Needed to use recursion, which I never use. I hardly ever even write functions - this is fraud data. you're analyzing data to find useful rules and the impacts of potential rules. The python I use is namely like pandas, and numpy, some scikit learn stuff, but I am by no means a pro and python. I told them I'd be wasting their time trying to write this function. could have just googled it quicker but whatever. Both of these guys were like people on the other team. They don't want you, they don't want to talk to you, they're too cool for anyone, they're not friendly, they're not anyone I'd ever want to work with. Less

1 Answers

My rank() function skills are rusty - I rarely use this function. I hate when interviewers ask questions that are designed to trip you up. Like outer joins, rank, running totals - who uses these on a regular basis? Maybe you would in a finance role, but not a fraud role. Less
