    5 Interviews? In a single day, or across multiple days?

    Are you interviewing for the CIA?

    FAANGM companies take 6+ rounds ๐Ÿ˜…, maybe it was the similar case here?

    Although such a company would be much more punctual.

    @gogokun Again, define "rounds"? If you just mean TPS, HR, on-site, managerial, and then Comp/Offer rounds, then sure. If you mean 5 rounds of technical interviews in a single day, those aren't "rounds". If you mean 5 separate days of long technical interviews, that's absurd.

    It’s like 6 interviews around DSA. With increasing difficulty.

    Starting from verbal answers to writing some code in later rounds.

    With a couple others for HR or Leadership and stuff.

    @gogokun What is DSA in this case?

    @junon

    I don’t have first hand experience but from what I’ve heard from my ex classmates is that they usually start with some theoretical questions around common data structures.

    Then in later rounds they ask you to solve some problem. Sometimes it’s related to path finding, sometimes it’s something else.

    This is pretty much all I know.

    @gogokun What does it stand for though?

    Oww okay, my bad.

    DSA = Data Structures & Algorithms

    @gogokun Ah okay. That seems like a lot of interviewing without really finding much signal.

    I can't imagine this being cost effective.

    Maybe they just don’t trust engineers from my country(India). I don’t like thinking about it but it has more or less become a stereotype now.

    My current company had one technical round, one management and one take home assignment.

    @gogokun a Big Tech company (not FANG but similar) in SF only had one five-hour day of on-sites. That was the limit for which even I had tolerance for.

    That feels more reasonable, yea.
