How's Dropbox phone screen and on-site interview process?

Any specific areas to focus on?

How's working at Dropbox? WLB etc...

    The recruiter will say you should practice multi threading, since they like to masturbate over that stuff

    They have 10 questions and they are all on glassdoor. Just prepare for these in depth and be ready to code multithreaded solutions just like you would do a leetcode hard in 30 mins.

    Got DP on phone screen. I wrote the code, had a bug, fixed it. Then I didn’t solve the follow up. I got rejected. The engineer sounded really smart.

    Dropbox questions arent traditional leetcode questions. Sure you can find questions on leetcode or glassdoor but those posts don't really help much

      They helped me. Got asked almost the exact duplicate file question with follow ups.

    Just did an on-site there and all the questions I got asked were on Glassdoor. They did ask a lot about concurrency
