I have a technical phone screen scheduled in a couple of weeks.
What kinds of questions should I expect and prepare for?

    Former employee here. Be comfortable with refactoring, and maintaining/cleaning code as you go along. Be prepared for changing requirements as the interview progresses.

    They are trying to get a signal on a few things; how well you communicate, your code velocity and how quickly you can adapt to changing needs, writing robust and readable code, and just overall how great you would be to work with.

    Good luck!

  • What kind of technical interview? There’s a million different IT / Tech related fields and questions for those fields.

    I just got one of their glassdoor questions. So I’d recommend just looking through all of those.

    You may or may not get one of those of course

      For the phone interview at least, yes. The onsite is technically pair programming but the interviewers are a lot more hands off.

      Hell no! Some people pair program from time to time, but entirely their choice. If you don’t want it, there is no expectation for you to do so.

    Just did one and will move to on-site. Was kinda hard to judge performance since it's so different from LC, but basically problem solving and writing test cases. The email makes a big deal about setting up your IDE and screensharing, but it's easier to just use Coderpad.

      Does the code need to be executed, or is it just looked over?

      It will need to run/compile, tho they set you up with good stubs, so it's mostly application logic.

    It's not tricky LeetCode, they care more about debugging and your writing a clear solution quickly
