    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Baidu in April 2017.

    Interview

    Offered an online assessment of 10 programming languages concept questions and one coding test of implementing a calculator. I did not do well due to poor preparation on the concept questions, but the coding part was quite easy.

    Interview Questions

    • OA:
      1. 10 concept questions on the programming language you pick. As I picked Python, questions are like "difference between list and tuple", "what is _init_() for?", and "what is WITH used for?", etc. Must finish each one within one minute.
      2. Coding problems. Implement a function of calculator to output the result given an input of math expression like " 3+ 4 *5 / 7 ".

      Summarization: Not that hard, but failed. Maybe I did not do well in part 1, and part 2 also was a little bit short of time.
