Probably failed Facebook screen interview w/200LC what are my odds?
Have done about 200 LC. Haven’t interviewed in a long ass time and barely slept the night before due to nerves. I have been able to consistently solve 1 easy + 1 medium using the LC mock interview feature usually in 20-25min for Both so I figured I was good to go.
They gave an easy ass recursion problem but for some reason I mis understood the interviewer and got real nervous. Froze up a bit at the whiteboard. Wrote some code and had to erase it all and write it again. In my code I had an additional feature that I thought he was asking for and spent too much time going through examples with him about it. Finally realized he didn’t want that so I removed a coefficient from 1 line of the code resulting in the correct code. He then told me the code was good. This is the kind of question I usually bang out in 5min on LC but I was performing shitty and was massively off point mentally. Real pissed at myself.
We moved on to a LC medium (reorder linked list with O(1) space) but admitted we wouldn’t have enough time. I got a few hints on that, coded up part of the solution (reverse linked list) but ran out of time to code the rest. I gave him a description of the full algorithm and runtime.
IF didn’t F up and waste time on the first I would have had enough time to fully code that second question up. I froze up and couldn’t think straight at first.
What are my chances?
