    1. Software Engineer Interview

      Anonymous Employee in Singapore
      No Offer
      Negative Experience
      Difficult Interview


      I interviewed for 4 different roles (2 frontend, 2 backend), failed all of them. Felt like I wasted my time because I was deemed not to have enough experience for 2 roles only after the final round, which should be something that is noted early during the resume screening.

      The interviews are very team dependent. For backend interviews, for most teams in the first 2 rounds, expect to be asked many CS fundementals topics in the first 30 minutes. To prepare, revise everything such as concurrency, networking, caching, programming languages that you state you know in your resume, etc. The last 30 minutes, expect to be asked to solve 1-2 LC medium questions. For frontend interviews, expect to be asked questions related to JavaScript, TypeScript, React, networking, any other FE library/frameworks you mentioned in your resume. Most of the coding questions for frontend interviewers wasn’t typical DSA questions. Go to leetcode and filter questions by “javascript”, those are the types of questions you will be asked to code. The hiring manager round for both backend and frontend was resume deep dive and system design.

      Tiktok is okay with candidates interviewing for another role anytime after you fail the interview for a current role. They are pretty desperate in hiring due to their infamous high turnover rate, contact any recruiter via LinkedIn to get a referral so that you can possibly skip the Online Assessment. I never had to do a single Online Assessment for any of the 4 teams I interviewed with.
