I dont get how people get medium/hard questions on phone screens. Basically every company I’ve interviewed has been LC easy (for phone screen, rest of interview is a different matter). Is it only at FNG?

Did TS/Citadel/DRW/Palantir/Amazon recently

    How did you get LC easy at Citadel and TS? I got game theory DP hards that I was told to convert to tail recursion.

      Did it get much harder from there? That's almost aggressively easy

      I interviewed for Software Engineer role as well. I guess I was just unlucky. Also, can you provide some background about yourself? Current company? TC?

  • For me, Citadel Securities gave an LC hard level question for a phone screen (still, it was not an SWE role).
