    Sofware Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies.

    Interview

    Submit resume and three essay questions, Complete coding challenge, Phone interview with coding challenge, 3-4 in person interviews with more coding challenges

    Overall obsessively long process. No wonder they have diversity problems. They ask questions which only top universities teach students the answers to, and the number of in-person interviews weeds out students who can't afford to travel back and forth to DC

    Interview Questions

    • Unnecessarily difficult interview for an internship. Asked to solve a problem a professional with many years of experience should be solving. This coding challenge felt like I was taking a college/grad school admittance exam.   1 Answer

    The coding assessment was three questions on typosquatting, which is basically asking string variations on different domain names. The other two questions were just add-ons to the first question. aa aa

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Simple phone screen with popular leetcode question. Interviewer proceeded to try to optimize my code in the middle of me solving the problem. I have no idea why an interviewer would not just let a candidate work and instead force minor modifications in the middle. Easily the worst interviewer i've ever had. Please step up your training

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies in September 2020.

    Interview

    I first spoke with a recruiter who was very helpful and kind. The first actual interview was with Karat, which made the interview a bit weird - she did not seem excited to be there and was not very helpful, differing from interviews with engineers at other companies. She asked 3 run time questions and 2 leetcode-y questions, the second being an optimization of the first.
