Split them into three groups of three, weigh two to determine the odd set out, then split that stack of three into three sets of one, and weigh two to find the single one out, requiring only two scale uses.
The above strategy works only if you know whether the odd item is lighter or heavier. If you do not know how it differs, you will need more scale uses.
111-111-114 <--- By weighing any of two sets, you get 114. 1-1-4 <----- By weighing any of two, you can find out 4.
Being in sales you always have to overcome objective
How is the job going now? Is it worth the $8 salary? How are the comissions working out? I have a interview next week.
I no longer work at Comcast, however it was a cool place to work at many of the employees in the tele-marketing department are students. So the part time aspect of the department fit their schedules. If you are a decent sales rep you can easily meet your quota. and reaching your quota you will do good. Good luck Oh yeah they offer free cable and internet but I think its $5-$10 per month for the Phone.
this is your common software engineer white board question. If you are going to interview for ATT, Google all basic sort algorithms and they will hire you.
Um...if anyone asks me to do a bubble sort in an interview, I'd probably question their expertise.
Gee, everytime I need to sort something, I call a sort function. Better yet, if it comes from a database, my sql statement better return it sorted. I haven't had to write a sort since I had to worry about overlays on a PDP 11/74. Thanks for the update since I may try to get an interview with AT&T.
You have a problem employee that you must fire as soon as possible and you have to change the store out for a brand new promotion the next day. Would you fire the employee first or wait until the store closed and put up the new promotional material?
Always hard to answer as you know they want to know your process.
I won't waste your time, I cannot remember a time I could not meet a deadline. Meeting a deadline is crucial for the next process to begin so not making one is not an option.
They want you to be trutheful here, and give an example where you missed a deadline. The important piece is how you followed through after missing the deadline.

In the military my 40 roommates and I hated each other. We all had the same Alpha Male attitude. One day we were assigned to clean our room in approximately one hour. This also included our lockers,all for inspection. As you can already guess we did not complete the task at hand. We as young soldiers decided to focus on our individual lockers and not the room we shared. We spent to much of our time on ourselves not the team. This was at the beginning of training. The final week as a platoon we were given the same task however this time only 45 minutes. With hard work and team work, setting pride aside, we were able to finish the task at hand. This time we focused on keeping our wall locker clean throughout training in order to work on the bigger project, the room.
Fill the 3 gal jug up and pour 3 gal into 5 gal jug. Fill the 3 gal jug back up and pour into the 5 gal jug filling it up, leaving 1 gal in the 3 gal jug. Pour out entire 5 gal jug emptying it and pour the 1 gal from the 3 gal jug in the 5 gal jug. Fill the 3 gal jug back up and pour all 3 gal in the 5 gal jug giving you 4 gal.
Fill the 5 gal container up and fill the 3 gal container up using the water in 5 gal container. So far there are 2 gal water left in 5 gal container. Then pour all the water in 3 gal container and fill it again with the 2 gal water in 5 gal container. Finally fill up the 5 gal container again and use the water in 5 gal container to fill the 3 gal container. Then there are 4 gal water left in the 5 gal container.

Fill both buckets completely. Then dump half of each bucket. That gives you 4 gallons. 5+ 3 = 8. 8/2 is 4 gallons. Half of the 5 gallon bucket is 2.5 and half of the 3 gallon bucket is 1.5. 1.5 + 2.5 = 4.
Trick question. Just because each container CAN hold 3 gallons and 5 gallons, doesn't mean that they currently do. So, fill both containers to full. You now have 8 gallons. Throw half of each container away, leaving you with 1.5 and 2.5 gallons. Tip the 1.5 into the 2.5 and voila!
They gave four different answers and I had no idea. I think it would take more than one minute on that question to figure out the algorithm.
It's not that you're overqualified. You probably just aren't technical. I took the test. It's logical and requires some basic technical and mechanical knowledge. Not everyone, even those with very distinguished degrees, can pass that test. It's geared for a specific type of individual.
This was a relatively easy question but it was followed by difficult questions that required more than one minute to answer.
The correct answer would be the screw driver with the fatter handle
Yeah, there were a lot of easy questions that you can answer right away, giving you more time to deal with the more difficult ones. Part of what they are looking for would be how you manage your time when you have a deadline. If you didn't see that, then that could also be why you fail since you panicked once you realized it.
