Entretien

It was easy to get a phone interview. The interview was a technical interview. The questions went to an extremely fine level of detail about nuances of software behavior. The interviewer did not simply assess whether I knew the answer, or knew the answer but couldn't quote the exact syntax at that moment (developers look up syntax all the time and every developer knows this!).

Questions d'entretien d'embauche

  • The most difficult part of this interview was that the interviewer, who spoke perfect English, had an extremely strong foreign accent. I could not understand a great deal of our conversation. Combined with the extremely technical nature of the conversation, and the already-difficult communication by telephone only, that was a huge disadvantage to me. I feel that because of this the interview was not a fair assessment of my skills. I mention this here because I have encountered it before, as many software developers have strong foreign accents.   Répondre à cette question

    Entretien

    One phone screen, one on-site.

    Parking for on-site interview is a major pain. There are 2-3 hour free public parking, which may be very difficult to find during the lunch time (since it's in Palo Alto downtown), and you have to leave in the middle of the interview, if it takes longer than 3 hours, to re-park your car to another place of a different color zone.

    Their office sits on the 2nd floor above Walgreen. Almost everybody works in the same central area, except a few with offices on the sides. There was a birthday celebration when I arrived and the area was kind of noisy, which might be distracting if you care about a quieter work environment.

    One of their interview questions was quite difficult, asking about internal implementations of Java's ExecutorService. I did not answer that question well, but I doubt how it could be used in their applications.

    They cut my on-site short, and emailed me on the next business day saying that I was not a good match to their position.

    My overall interview experience with Houzz was okay but not great. Later on I got offers from Apple, Google and Twitter, so it guess it was a good thing that I didn't get their offer.

    Regarding parking when interviewing at Houzz: If your interview may last more than 3 hours you can arrive early, park in the parking garage, and Houzz will now provide an all-day parking pass that... Voir plus

    I got a phone screen from houzz. They asked me two questions. How would you find if an element with A[i] = i exists in a sorted integer array with no duplicates. I solved it right away. Second, question was how would you detect a cycle in a DAG.

    Entretien

    The interview lasted for two and half hours. It was supposed to last 4 to 5 hours, but after the 3rd round interview, the recruiter told me to go back and said that their engineers have to attend a meeting so the interview has to stop. And she told me to wait till next week to get the feedback. After 5 days, I got a call telling me that I didn't get the internship.

    Entretien

    Started with recruiter reaching out to me. Then setup the first phone screen where I answered both Coding questions correctly on coderpad. I made sure the code gave correct outputs for various inputs and edge cases. Interviewer was impressed but then I received email from recruiter to take a second phone screen for some reason. I didn't mind so I said I'm fine taking a second phone screen. The second phone screen interviewer first called 10 minutes late. He seemed unprepared and asked me a coding question. I suggested a bunch of solutions and he didn't seem to give feedback so I went with the most optimal solution. I was talking all the time while coding but I believe he was doing something else. In the end, he just said we are out of time and then he just blurted that I didn't provide an optimal solution and then we ended the call. I noticed he ended the interview 5 minutes early. Recruiter reached out after a week and said won't be moving forward. Such a waste of time even after you do answer their questions correctly. Avoid interviewing here if you don't want to waste your time.

    I applied online, and recruiter contacted me. I passed the initial two phone screens, and was offered onsite at their Palo Alto downtown office. It was great to see the internal decoration of houzz. Interviews are regular coding questions, but they also require full stack. I may not have mastered full stack techniques.

    Phone interview with an engineer. The engineer had trouble speaking english, and was very defensive when I asked them to speak more clearly. Asked database specific questions, some of which I did not know the answer to. When I did not know the answer, the engineer told me in a very condescending tone that "I lack understanding". Fast forward to the coding interview - midway through my solution, the engineer decided I could not do it on my own, and proceeded to complete the code for me. Probably the most unprofessional and worst coding interview I've ever experienced. Culture is SO important in a company, and Houzz showed me that they hire engineers that do not respect this.a

    Brief HR call, then a 1on1 with one of the engineers. The interviewer asked a general question but expected a very specific solution which he had in front of him.

    Technical onsite coding interviews and some computer science knowledge. Got passed the technical ones and had another one with the VP. Then got rejected after that.. The company is not very new-grad friendly, prefer someone with more experience.
