    Associate Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pocket Gems.

    Interview

    Did a '3-4 hour' take home assignment that really took 5-6 to complete. Then spoke on the phone to the team where they asked math questions that I thought didn't relate to the description and just humiliated me when I couldn't figure them out. Not fun.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Pocket Gems in January 2018.

    Interview

    Online Assessment followed by 2 phone interviews. The Online Assessment consisted of 2 questions (easy-medium level) and the time given was 45 minutes. I got an email from the recruiter in a few days asking me to schedule a phone interview. I passed the first one even though it didn't go so well. My second interview went very well, I was asked two 2 questions and I was able to solve both of them completely. The Chinese interviewer, however, sounded more like a robot than a human. But, I received a generic rejection email in 2-3 days. I emailed the recruiter asking for feedback, but she didn't reply. Entire waste of a month!

    Interview Questions

    • OA - 2 Easy-Medium questions (Don't remember them)
      Phone interview 1 - Maze, lock and Key problem. Maze(square matrix) has several door locks(a...z) and keys(A...Z). Find shortest path from source to destination after going through all doors
      Phone interview 2:
       1Q - Find the length of the shortest subarray such that if you sort that subarray, the entire given array is sorted
      2Q - Find the length of the largest BST in a Binary Tree   Answer Question
