    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waterloo, ON
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Square (Waterloo, ON) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Hour long "pair programming" sessions with square developers. They give you a simple programming task and you implement it in the language of your choice. "Pair" because some of them will sit with you and point out typos and let you bounce ideas and be helpful, while some will work on other things and hardly pay attention.

    Interview Questions

    • Find shortest uniquely identifying prefixes on a set of words. Eg "pineapple" "pinetree" "pill" has "pinea" "pinet" and "pil"   1 Answer
