      Did they ask you to differentiate between Fake News and real news ?

      @Pandora Tech/Engineering has nothing to do with Journalistic biases, but you guys seriously need to fix your buffering between strong and weak signal strengths!!

      @Amazon. You already know it all, significant experience at FANG. I won't be able to suggest with regards to your area of expertise, because mine is just Android, but as far as the role goes, I think I lost it because I did not present myself adequately. Leadership, Experiences, STAR techniques, Behavioral, I just didn't focus enough although that was explicitly mentioned by the Recruiter in their prep-email. Code Quality is High-regard. I had 7 rounds in total, 2 over the phone, and 5 Onsite. First Phone Interview was a breeze LC Easy (150), then Behavioral. Onsite was HM, then Code-Quality round, then Hands-on Android App Development round, then one White-boarding again LC-Easy (716), and finally a System Design Android App on the White-board. I did terrible in the Code-Quality, literally because I did not pay sufficient attention. Reach out to Recruiter, and take as much prep-notes as you can, and stay warm and affectionate. Overall, it was a helluva wonderful experience, and I'd love to work there some time.
