Failed an Uber everything nyc interview last fri
So it’s a small enough office maybe someone might see this and could pm me and give me feedback on what I need to work on. Recruiter “was not allowed to give feedback”. I have 15 years experience but really only got good after being at bbg the last 8 years.
I haven’t been interviewing in 8 years when these design questions were NOT popular and when leetcode questions were there but not ubiquitous. I of course did study a lot and did about 75-100 leetcode/ctci/hackerrank over about 6 months.
There was only one coding and three design and I thought I nailed the coding. However I had to ask questions and think out loud, and of course had some bugs to correct.
Design I probably could have been better, however I did a gainlo design and got 4.5 / 5 on it so I thought I was good there. My only thought is that it may have been judged by the standards of a junior level and not a senior level position.
I just want to know what to improve on since I’m clearly out of the game. Walking out of an interview and thinking I nailed it then finding out I don’t get it is a problem - I need to know where the goalposts are to be able to hit them.
