I said friendly because if there was a delay on the food but you were friendly they would be willing to wait where as if the service was fast with no interaction with the customers then it wouldn't give the restaraunt a good loom. The manager understood what I meant and he said its better to have a bit of both. He said whilst working in mcds you'll learn how to balance this but some people are still get to learn.
The problem solving exercise was to suggest improvement measures for a small town divided by a heavily trafficked main road which is flanked by an ecologically sensitive area and a river with limited crossing potential.
The exercise bears a strong resemblance to a previous Jacobs project and whilst the obvious solution may well be the best solution the real test is in your ability to justify and communicate your response. The interviewers didn't seem to want to catch you out and would ask questions for further points of clarification if you missed anything in your initial response to the question. Also, the answer need not just be about civil engineering but also peripheral issues such as socio-economic impacts.
Thank you for sharing. I am wondering would you tell me a little bit more about the interview as got a java interview in weeks time. What is kind is the pair programming, something like solving problems(like question on codility.com) or basic data structure implementation? Is the pair programming with other candidates or their interviewer? Second part: is that questions about concept in OOP and java? like inheritance, interface, etc? or anything else? What is the question like in third stage?Is there any question specially design for betting?As I know little about betting/gambling... Much appreciate!!
