Interview Questions

  • Given two words (beginWord and endWord), and a dictionary's word list, find all shortest transformation sequence(s) from beginWord to endWord, such
        that:
    Only one letter can be changed at a time
    Each transformed word must exist in the word list. Note that beginWord is not a transformed word.
    Note:
    Return an empty list if there is no such transformation sequence.
    All words have the same length.
    All words contain only lowercase alphabetic characters.
    You may assume no duplicates in the word list.
    You may assume beginWord and endWord are non-empty and are not the same.
    Example 1:
    Input:
    beginWord = "hit",
    endWord = "cog",
    wordList = ["hot","dot","dog","lot","log","cog"]
    Output:
    [
      ["hit","hot","dot","dog","cog"],
      ["hit","hot","lot","log","cog"]
    ]
    Example 2:
    Input:
    beginWord = "hit"
    endWord = "cog"
    wordList = ["hot","dot","dog","lot","log"]
    Output: []
    Explanation: The endWord "cog" is not in wordList, therefore no possible transformation.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process was very unorganized. The first person to interview me was late and didn't find out she was interviewing me until a few minutes before interview. The interview process was a total of 2 hours. I took a group tour first. Pay attention to everything they are showing you during the tour. Then they split us up into groups according to job you're applying for.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VMware (Atlanta, GA (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through university recruiting, and was invited for an on-campus interview a few weeks later. The interview consisted mostly of questions about the state of mobile computing. They are really interested in people who are passionate about mobile and stay up-to-date. He asked what AirWatch does, which surprised me, since usually they just tell you what the company does. A few days later I got an invite to go on site. I scheduled it for a few weeks later.
    The on site consisted of a tour, PowerPoint presentations, and two interviews - technical and non-technical. On the non-technical side, it boils down to passion. They are looking for people who are seriously into mobile, security, or cloud. Technical was typical QA stuff.
    Ultimately I got an offer, but declined. I was under the impression that this was a coding job (like SDET), but found out during the on site that it is not. So it wasn't what I was looking for.
