Salesforce kulani 1 hacker rank challenge. 2 LC hard in 1 hour. Got dominated

Aug 10, 2019 4 Comments

Did well on the sales force phone screen (interviewer said so himself) and proceeded to the next round which is a hacker rank challenge. Phone screen was pretty easy. It was a mix of real world java programming examples with questions related to each one. Coding exercise was a LC easy (implement queue with stacks)

Hacker challenge was 1hr. 2 questions BOTH leetcode hard. Wow.

Didn’t have enough time to solve in 1hour so it’s GG at this point. Game over. I would have been able to solve if I had more time. I’m not that fast with LC hard I usually need 45-1hr per question for hard. Some I don’t get at all and need to research topics. Easy and medium is where I think my time is good but not hard.

I thought the target time for LC hard is supposed to be 45min. I’m real skeptical that they have that many people passing this.

    Why would someone have a hackerrank after a technical phone interview? That's just weird.

      Very odd.

    Do you know it's a leetcode hard or are you assuming it's a leetcode hard?

    If you know it's a leetcode hard, why didn't you just copy paste some submission?

    If you're assuming it's a leetcode hard, you may wanna reverify just in case because Salesforce doesn't ask such stuff in my experience. If they did, it's an unfortunate event

      I’m pretty sure it is LC hard. Requires a segment tree to solve efficiently. 9/10 leetcode questions tagged segment tree are hard. 1 is medium.
