    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Initial phone interview followed by a technical interview that was split into two smaller sections. The technical interview took several hours with a break for lunch in the middle. The technical interview was done with several of the engineers so I got to meet many of the people who worked there, which was nice.
    Interview

    I was asked to talk about Big O notation, among other basic programming concepts, like arrays and matrices and maps.
