- Google L6 InternZero. Never done coding practice for interviews and never will. Work isn't highschool and interview isn't a final exam.
- Yes. I am not recommending you don't you leetcode, unfortunately most companies, including Google, ask these type of questions, which in my opinion are completely useless in evaluating a candidate (with the exception of new grads). I also interview at Google but I don't think leetcoding is helpful in solving the type of questions I ask.
- Uber / EngDgoQ22About 10-20. You don’t really need to solve that many problems, just have to understand the general pattern and different question categories.
- No practice for when I joined google out of school. Admittedly internship interview isn’t hard.
No practice for Microsoft and amazon though. I feel like the hardest part is actually understanding what’s being asked. Once you get that far, the code is easy
