    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies in October 2019.

    Interview

    I submitted the essays for the path internship and was selected to complete the coding challenge. I was able to complete most of the challenge and was invited to an onsite in Washington DC.

    The onsite was very fun and they had a travel agency take care of everything. In addition, they put all the interviewees in a nice hotel nearby. I was able to answer most of the questions (they were at a challenging, but approachable level) and had a great time talking with all the employees. I was rejected the week after.

    I am a little disappointed by the "path" program. From what I understand, the program is for students who have not had a traditional path into CS; ie minorities and students new to CS. However, most of the students at the onsite were not minorities and were from the top and ivy universities. I was rejected on the basis that they wanted to see more out of my technical skills, even though I am strong in my abilities and was able to do a pretty good job in the interviews. It doesn't add up that I got rejected for not being perfect in coding skills for a program to help students that are not as experienced. So beware, they are not completely transparent in what they are advertising.

    Both the coding challenge and technical interviews comprised of a technical question, a question where they provide a new topic and you have to show that you can learn the topic and apply it, and an open ended question. They also sprung a surprise phone screening in there before the onsite, where they asked some hard questions about "why I would chose Palantir over other companies" and similar uncomfortable questions. They also added an additional technical interview after the 3 scheduled technical interviews onsite. It was a lot.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies (Washington, DC (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, then got an email for the HackerRank. After hackerrank, I got an email for an onsite interview at Washington DC. Flew all the way to Washington DC and did 3 rounds of interviews. One coding, one learning, and one software decomposition, behavioral questions were mixed in before each interview. Mid-interview they escorted out half of the candidates, while the other half continued on with interviews + the facility tour, I found this to be pretty BM.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Palantir Technologies (Washington, DC (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    There were 3 essays to submit and then I got a hackerrank after a week or so. Passed 3/5 on the hackerrank and was then invited for an onsite. Onsite had 3 interviews, one coding interview, one system design, and one just a general interview where they taught you SQL and asked you questions. I didn't do so well so they didn't schedule any more interviews that day. Pretty good experience overall and the engineers were really professional and enthusiastic to have you.
