Software Engineer Intern Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo.

Interview

Was contacted by a hiring manager after submitting my email during a campus career fair. Sent application and was soon asked by the hiring manager if I was available for a remote technical interview. Agreed on a time for later in the week. Come that time, I wait 15 minutes after I should be receiving a call before I contact the hiring manager asking whether the interview was still on. Hiring manager tries to say that we agreed on a different time all along despite our very clear email trail confirming and re-confirming our set time. Luckily I was available for the time that she claimed we were set for, but it left a very bad impression of unprofessional handling of the situation and disregard of my time (who doesn't apologize for their obvious mistake?).

Finally, during the actual interview, was paired with a current software development employee. Had a conversation portion in which we discussed my interests/experiences/etc. and then a technical phone portion where I was asked about various sorting algorithms and runtimes and then moved onto a google-doc esque environment where I was asked to implement mergesort.

The phone interviewer seemed very pleased with me and was suggesting I would be moving forward, but never heard from them again.

    Interview

    Applied online and had an interview scheduled a few weeks after. The software engineer interviewing me asked a few behavioral questions and some technical questions regarding language specific elements. I had a second follow up phone interview that was more technical in nature and I was then sent an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    The process was slightly disorganized, but overall it was enjoyable. The process consisted of three interviews. The interviewers were all very friendly, and communicated clearly for the most part. Programming on Collabedit is the main part of the interview. One question focussed only on developing an algorithm, and another focussed on object oriented design.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yahoo.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through the job fair of my university. I got the email of the first interview after more than one month.

    For the first interview, I was asked some general questions about how to design a problem using different kinds of distributed and parallel tools, like Hadoop, Hadoop PIG, and MPI. I think the reason is that I have previous related projects. No online coding.

    After the first interview, I got the email of next step within only 2 hours.

    For the second interview, the interviewer is a system architect. And we only discussed several question of Hadoop and HDFS. Also some general questions about OOP. No online coding.

    Then the next day, I got the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • How to find the k largest number in a distributed environment through a frontend tool. I am quite unfamiliar with frontend tool, so I just proposed a method which is more like a joke, and the interviewer also laughed about it.   1 Answer
