    Easy Interview

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at TripAdvisor in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied in career fair. Got an email scheduling a Skype technical interview after 5 days. Then it took them 10 days to get back to me, asking if the next day worked. Then until 45 minutes before the interview, the HR sent me the link to an online whiteboard I would do all the coding on. My interviewer is pretty nice and overall the interview is very casual. I got one data structure question and one coding question. After I finished coding, the interviewer suggested a better algorithm.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TripAdvisor in June 2013.

    Interview

    Two phone interview, then onsite interview at Boston though my position is based on palo alto. Most interviewers are nice and friendly, but one is impatient and a little bit rude. After I finished the code, I didn't explain it clearly at first. Instead of trying to understand me, he insisted my solution is WRONG and tried to teach me his solution.

    Interview Questions
