Stage 1: Phone screen with recruiter
Stage 2: Technical phone interview with hiring manager Questions on this interview include past projects, OOP concepts mainly related to C++, data structures and memory features about the relevant programming languages.
Stage 3: Onsite interview The questions in the onsite interview range from basic data structure and algorithms (such as different ways of implementing fibonacci number and its complexity, C++ STL sorting) questions to advanced problem solving relevant to the project that the team is working on. The interview sessions include whiteboard coding, problem solving, designing a data structure class, and some more generic behavioral and situational interview rounds.
Pathrise is a career accelerator that helps people land their dream jobs. We regularly place our fellows at top companies like Apple, Amazon, and Meta. Our mentors have experience at companies like Apple, giving fellows the inside scoop on interview and company culture in 1-on-1 sessions.
