Paper exams are harder than interview question, really basic situational questions

Last year one of my 1st graders was screaming at another girl calling her a liar and tried to hit her. I separated her by having her sit in the back of the class. I got down on her level, held her hands at her sides so she wouldn't hit looked her straight in the eyes and told her that what she was doing was not right. The next day in line I sensed she was going to start fighting so I called her to come and stand next to me. Less

If a teacher faints and there is an assistant I will have the assistant watch the class while I help the teacher who fainted. I will have the teacher sit with her head down and when she says she feels not dizzy I'll help her to a chair and notify site coordinator then get her some water. If no assistant I'll appoint another student to go get site coordinator and say that the teacher fainted while I assign an independent activity to the rest of the class. After that I'll help fainted teacher to chair after she says she's not dizzy and get her some water Less

If two kids are fighting I will separate each one and have each one tell me their side. Once I get both sides I will ask the students what they could have done differently and have them apologize Less

How many snow shovels sold in the US last year?

18 Answers

There are roughly 400 million people in the US About 100 million people live in areas where having a snow shovel would make sense (NY and Pennsylvania are large) A snow shovel likely only needs to be replaced every 10 years 100/10 = 10 million The average home size is ~2.5 10/2.5 = 4 million homes each home likely has about 1.5 shovels on average 4*1.5 = 6 My educated guess would be 6 million (although my intuition is this is a little high) Less

Greater than the number of Tasers

All of them. Every single one that was purchased.

How many baby diapers are used per year in the UK?

11 Answers

a Sh***t load

None - because they're called nappies in the UK.

I could give 2 answers to this and both are correct: 1 - Twice half the number or 2 - Don't know. 2 would be my preferred answer and I have answered 'don't know' to a lot of interview questions. If I don't know, I don't know and I am not going to spout BS. Lets get onto the next question. Less

There are 9 identical looking balls, but one ball is slightly heavier than the others. If you have one scale, what is the least number of measurements one would need to identify for sure, which ball is the heavier one?

6 Answers

Place 3 balls on each side of the scale and leave 3 off. Next take two of the three balls from the heavier side (or 2 from the 3 left out originally if the balance is equal) and put one on each side of the balance and leave 1 off. If the balance is unequal you've found the heavy ball, if the balance is equal the heavy ball is the 1 you didn't weigh. Less

If a change in a product made Google less money over all and even would reduce the revenue of partners but might save money for the consumers should Google still do it?

6 Answers

>> seemed to want to base the answer on "doing something good for the world" as being Google's real mission. That is the right answer. If you read Google's set of values, it says there clearly - you dont have to be evil to make money. He was testing if you believe in that. Less

Let's start with what is it we are losing and gaining If we get more users If there is a better way of doing it, a competitor is going to find it out and that as always except for very loyal customers, the herd will move to the competitor. So it makes sense for Google itself to provide this offering under "doing something good for the world" and keep the business going and creating an entry barrier to the competitor. This will ensure the users seeing as a good will. Less

I would argue that Google has to stay in business to continue to do good if that really is still is their "value". The is NOTHING evil about having a sensible business model so you can continue to remain in business and serve your customers. So the feature has to be looked at in balance. I mean the logical extension is why not just have Google buy the thing for you! That would be great for the customer, but not a sustainable business model. My answer also included that when you look at the overall impact on the feature you may very well decide its a good feature if you believe the overall perceived value to the customer generates enough good will for Google to be worth the reduction in revenue to Google (good luck selling that to the partners though). So I'm going to stick with that interviewer needed to realize "doing good" depends on remaining healthy enough to continue to be able to do that "good". And there is nothing evil about that. Less

There aren't any truly hard questions. Very basic questions.

5 Answers

The written test was related to practical and on-the-job questions. I remember this one question asked how to respond when you have a student who is constantly misbehaving. They're common sense, so nothing to study pretty much. Less

if I have a student who is constantly misbehaving I will come up with an incentive to get them to behave. I am currently working with 2 sisters simultaneously where one of them is constantly fooling around. I came up with a strategy of 1 sticker for every 4 worksheets done. I timed each worksheet and since they came up with good descriptive words for a story character I gave them 2 stickers for 7 pages done. I plan to run the class around positive reinforcement with a clip chart giving surprises to the people at the top and talking to the ones at the bottom to create a plan to do better. If at the lowest point I talk to the parents and site supervisor to create a plan for behavior improvement Less

I will come up with an incentive to correct the behavior. I will have a chart from 1 to 5 with 1 being the bottom where the student was completely misbehaving and 5 where the student was really good in class. If they stay at 4 or 5 all week they get a surprise at the end of the week. Same if they are at the top two levels of the clip chart all week. If they are at 2 or at the next to lowest on the clip chart we talk to create a plan for how the student will do better. If the are at the lowest level on clip chart or at a 1 I talk to the parents and site coordinator on a behavior improvement plan. Less

What is the hardest thing in moving a team to Agile?

5 Answers

It's the people. Getting them to understand the Agile concept, then utilize it. Some developers never get "Fluid Requirements". They want final requirements and that's it. Less

1. Communication. Frequent communication from the developers to ensure problems are raised and solved 2. Team needs to learn how to ship products with low-pri bugs Less

- New team (everyone is still forming, norming, storming) so hard to estimate and collaborate - Distributed team members (works best if teams are collocated) - Strong, individual performers. Agile is about team work. - Not having a product owner - etc. Less

You have no extra time and no extra resources but is asked by the CEO to add 20 extra features, what do you do?

4 Answers

First, I will try to figure out how important these 20 extra features, whether some or all of them are 'must have', 'should have','could have' or 'nice to have'. I would totally rule out any 'could have' or 'nice to have'. A project/program manager must have courage and conviction to say 'no'. If some or all of those features are 'must have' or 'should have', then I will see what features in current project/program can be dropped in favor of the new features. use creative project/program planning or use overtime as much as possible without adding extra risk. If none of the above is true, then extra resources or time must be negotiated. Through analysis of the situation and clear communication is key to achieve this objective. Less

It's always about trade offs. Add the 20 requested features to the list - then sit with stakeholders (marketing, engineering, etc) and sort the list by priority and by ease of implementation. Customer must haves should come first and these hopefully were articulated when the core product was conceived and started. Include in the list the level of completion of the features. Completed ones are done, move them below the line. Review the remaining - which can be completed in remaining time with available resources and which have to be dropped. Be the strong project manager and present to management. If the company only wants yes persons with no critical thinking skills, you probably don't want the job anyway. Less

For SW projects, we have to freeze requirements, scope, they can not change after a certain phase. Else developers has to start the design phase. I will take the 20 items to my dev team and ask what can be accommodated with minimal changes to existing plan. Ultimately business needs over-write all others. Less
