    Interview

    One round on campus after career fair and two rounds on site. On campus's result was given the following Monday and then scheduled Friday's onsite. The recruiter is super helpful. First on site interviewer was a little intimidating and misleading. The second was very kind. Overall average interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Tableau Software (Seattle, WA (US)).

    Interview

    Typical interview process. Had some depth questions, had a single coding question. It was on the verge of being too easy. I felt more experienced than the people that interviewed me. Similar to microsoft.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tableau Software (Seattle, WA (US)) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I found the Tableau interview process challenging but very positive. The interviews consist of background questions, and then some technical whiteboard problems. There are normally two engineers that work as a team in the interviews. They were all personable and kind. Normally one of the interviews is with some of the senior technical management. What struck me most about the interview process is the passion and enthusiasm that they all have for their work, environment, and product.

    A technical recruiter works with you all of the way, and clearly explains benefits available. I had a question about the benefits. The recruiter found the answer and replied that same day.

    Download Tableau and experiment with it before your interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tableau Software (Austin, TX (US)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen by HR, followed by engineering phone screen with some fairly simple knowledge questions. Next a 1 day take-home test designing a simple algorithm.

    Next was fly-in to corporate, with half of day engineering questions and the rest personality interviews. The data structure/algorithms questions were fairly difficult, but everyone was quite pleasant and happy to answer all the questions I had.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tableau Software in July 2013.

    Interview

    Started with an HR phone screen for possible fit. 2 rounds of technical phone screens [ Basic OO concepts, DS, basic algos and S/W Engg practices]. On-site : Though it was a great experience, it was interview overload - 9:30 am - 5:00pm (on the pretext of candidate being able to meet team members). 8 rounds of 1:2 interviews(so, you would need to solve 2 questions in 45 mins, discuss the implementation and leave some time for Q&A). Nothing stood out as being extremely difficult but for the duration.

    I was brain dead by the last round, and it looked like they had kept the best for the last! Was asked to come up with design and code solution to a DP problem in the last round...the best I could do was stare at the white board.

    I wish the on-site loops were shorter.
