    On-site. Face to face communication always trumps online communication in terms of quality.

    Shouldn’t even be a question. You’ll get to see the place, talk to people face-to-face, see what it’s about.

  • I just had same decision, chose onsite. Never done a whiteboard interview, so I figure it will be good practice. Have a Google onsite the week after too, so I thought it would be a good test run for dealing with nerves.

    Onsite but make sure you have adequate time to prepare.

    If you're asking about if there's any difference in difficulty or problem, the answer is no.

    The rest is up to whether you prefer having a face-to-face interaction versus making the trip. I know some people who thought it was easier to communicate and express their ideas on the board versus phone/coderpad, but it's up to you.
