    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hatfield, East of England, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ocado (Hatfield, East of England, England) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I applied Ocado through agent. They asked me to send CV and cover letter. I was then asked to do an online test on Java. The online test was very difficult, and covered many concepts rarely used. Passed that and got onsite interview. The test consists of two questions, one is basically logical, you were given some basic operation, like increment, minus, multiply, and then you use these operations to define other operations, like test equality, nonequality, and so on. The other one is to finish an incomplete program. The program is about linked list, to test the size. Messed about this part.

    Interview Questions

    • Linked list. Base class and derived class. Complete the missing part about size test.   Answer Question
