senior engineer interview questions shared by candidates
Why are manhole covers round
There is no right or wrong answer here. The hiring manager is trying to understand the thought process you go through to answer a question.
They're round because, given that they have bevelled edges, that shape makes it impossible to drop the cover down the hole.
They are round because the shaft that you descend into, after removing the manhole cover, is round.
I did not have difficulty with any questions, as the interviewers were already convinced of my qualifications. The most challenging part for me was to think of something useful to ask, as I know this to be a crucial step in making a good impression in an interview - to show that you are interested in the company and have taken time to learn about them before the interview.
