    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Phone Screen (basic Java questions) -> Tech round (intermediate Java questions/data structures) -> HR round

    The tech team reads off a script of questions found here on glassdoor in the second stage.

    The HR round mostly asked me personal questions about my education (high school and college) rather than what I could offer to the company. No personal questions besides education, for the most part. Just where you got your degree/your high school experience. One of them also remarked that they thought my school was bad.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the difference between abstract classes and interfaces?
      Did you come from a public or private high school?
      Did anyone famous come from your school?   Answer Question
