      Average Interview

      I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FactSet (India)


      I gave 3 rounds of technical interview first round was purely into javascript based algorithm questions, although the job posting was for a fullstack role , I was mostly asked on the backend and very minimal on the frontend technologies. second round was with the manager who sits in US, it was again a technical design interview mostly concentrated on programming concepts rather than on any specific technology third round was with technical manager with few basic DSA questions. overall interview difficulty was medium, the process was smooth

      How do you implement removal of element from linkedlist using javascript. Write a pseudo class to implement a sample rest API which does GET,POST,PUT operations
