    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kirkland, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at THQ (Kirkland, WA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    A written programming pre-screening test, which was not difficult. The onsite interview lasted for several hours, with multiple groups, but was fairly informal with a mixture of reviewing my resume, standard interview "describe a time you did X", and white board style questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe the implementation of a pathfinding algorithm.   Answer Question
