    Sorry in advance if some r*tard asks you a DP hard or a “more difficult kind of” hard. Wish we could control what people can ask as I have read some people get bummed (at Google) when they were asked by the recruiter that they shouldn’t be asking DP!

    That being said, best of luck, hope you get the job of your dreams :)

      Thanks. Judging by the poll answers, I’m getting nothing but hards tomorrow. There goes my dream of getting into Google.

      But if your dream is really Google, then you should have prepared the hards as well

      Lol people here are just trolling. Don’t form opinions of how your day is going to be based on the results of an online poll (especially Blind).

      Stay positive! Remember interviewers are humans, be good to them and moooostly they will reciprocate!

    I interviewed at Sunnyvale location in April 2019 and got a reject. It was my fault, the questions they asked were actually pretty standard. My prep just wasn't up that level - I was scared of Trie and got asked to implement Sentence autocomplete feature.

    Anyway, enjoy the interview. The interviewers are way more helpful than Amazon and FB, in my experience.

      Before going for Google onsite, I had done 180 LC problems, mostly mediums and around 10 hard.
      Before FB, I did 315 LC problems, 200 medium's and 45 hard, and was able to clear onsite.

    What is the bar for hard questions? Working brute force code at a minimum?

      Brute force = rejection from google and a PIP from your current employer.

      Please go back and read my first comment here. There are some r*tards who ask hard DPs and it can’t be helped. I’m sorry OP, still wish you luck in finding something you like.
