Paper exams are harder than interview question, really basic situational questions

29 Answers

Last year one of my 1st graders was screaming at another girl calling her a liar and tried to hit her. I separated her by having her sit in the back of the class. I got down on her level, held her hands at her sides so she wouldn't hit looked her straight in the eyes and told her that what she was doing was not right. The next day in line I sensed she was going to start fighting so I called her to come and stand next to me. Less

If a teacher faints and there is an assistant I will have the assistant watch the class while I help the teacher who fainted. I will have the teacher sit with her head down and when she says she feels not dizzy I'll help her to a chair and notify site coordinator then get her some water. If no assistant I'll appoint another student to go get site coordinator and say that the teacher fainted while I assign an independent activity to the rest of the class. After that I'll help fainted teacher to chair after she says she's not dizzy and get her some water Less

If two kids are fighting I will separate each one and have each one tell me their side. Once I get both sides I will ask the students what they could have done differently and have them apologize Less

How many snow shovels sold in the US last year?

18 Answers

There are roughly 400 million people in the US About 100 million people live in areas where having a snow shovel would make sense (NY and Pennsylvania are large) A snow shovel likely only needs to be replaced every 10 years 100/10 = 10 million The average home size is ~2.5 10/2.5 = 4 million homes each home likely has about 1.5 shovels on average 4*1.5 = 6 My educated guess would be 6 million (although my intuition is this is a little high) Less

Greater than the number of Tasers

All of them. Every single one that was purchased.

How many baby diapers are used per year in the UK?

11 Answers

a Sh***t load

None - because they're called nappies in the UK.

I could give 2 answers to this and both are correct: 1 - Twice half the number or 2 - Don't know. 2 would be my preferred answer and I have answered 'don't know' to a lot of interview questions. If I don't know, I don't know and I am not going to spout BS. Lets get onto the next question. Less

Out of my over 30 years in Sales I have lead the most successful teams even through 2008 to 2012 which were very rough and tough times here in the states. My team remanded ever dedicated and we came up with creative ideas to make it through that recession. Less

I am not sure if this company or offer is in the United states or England but open to travel and maybe even relocate with more understanding of the job, pay and benefits. Less

I work with several Rad Techs, CT and MRI techs. Managing their careers in the USA. While obviously as a Sales Professional and Motivational speaker I do not work with Siemens my candidates do and they are all top notch. Less

There are 9 identical looking balls, but one ball is slightly heavier than the others. If you have one scale, what is the least number of measurements one would need to identify for sure, which ball is the heavier one?

6 Answers

Place 3 balls on each side of the scale and leave 3 off. Next take two of the three balls from the heavier side (or 2 from the 3 left out originally if the balance is equal) and put one on each side of the balance and leave 1 off. If the balance is unequal you've found the heavy ball, if the balance is equal the heavy ball is the 1 you didn't weigh. Less

If a change in a product made Google less money over all and even would reduce the revenue of partners but might save money for the consumers should Google still do it?

6 Answers

>> seemed to want to base the answer on "doing something good for the world" as being Google's real mission. That is the right answer. If you read Google's set of values, it says there clearly - you dont have to be evil to make money. He was testing if you believe in that. Less

Let's start with what is it we are losing and gaining If we get more users If there is a better way of doing it, a competitor is going to find it out and that as always except for very loyal customers, the herd will move to the competitor. So it makes sense for Google itself to provide this offering under "doing something good for the world" and keep the business going and creating an entry barrier to the competitor. This will ensure the users seeing as a good will. Less

I would argue that Google has to stay in business to continue to do good if that really is still is their "value". The is NOTHING evil about having a sensible business model so you can continue to remain in business and serve your customers. So the feature has to be looked at in balance. I mean the logical extension is why not just have Google buy the thing for you! That would be great for the customer, but not a sustainable business model. My answer also included that when you look at the overall impact on the feature you may very well decide its a good feature if you believe the overall perceived value to the customer generates enough good will for Google to be worth the reduction in revenue to Google (good luck selling that to the partners though). So I'm going to stick with that interviewer needed to realize "doing good" depends on remaining healthy enough to continue to be able to do that "good". And there is nothing evil about that. Less

There aren't any truly hard questions. Very basic questions.

5 Answers

The written test was related to practical and on-the-job questions. I remember this one question asked how to respond when you have a student who is constantly misbehaving. They're common sense, so nothing to study pretty much. Less

if I have a student who is constantly misbehaving I will come up with an incentive to get them to behave. I am currently working with 2 sisters simultaneously where one of them is constantly fooling around. I came up with a strategy of 1 sticker for every 4 worksheets done. I timed each worksheet and since they came up with good descriptive words for a story character I gave them 2 stickers for 7 pages done. I plan to run the class around positive reinforcement with a clip chart giving surprises to the people at the top and talking to the ones at the bottom to create a plan to do better. If at the lowest point I talk to the parents and site supervisor to create a plan for behavior improvement Less

I will come up with an incentive to correct the behavior. I will have a chart from 1 to 5 with 1 being the bottom where the student was completely misbehaving and 5 where the student was really good in class. If they stay at 4 or 5 all week they get a surprise at the end of the week. Same if they are at the top two levels of the clip chart all week. If they are at 2 or at the next to lowest on the clip chart we talk to create a plan for how the student will do better. If the are at the lowest level on clip chart or at a 1 I talk to the parents and site coordinator on a behavior improvement plan. Less

What is the hardest thing in moving a team to Agile?

5 Answers

Personalities and level of comfort of the development staff. Some team members can resist change they don't understand. The key is in presentation of the core of Agile/Scrum and not in the buzzwords or trendiness - emphasize the minimized reaction to positive developments and test/missed Architecture or requirements, the daily standups being the only real hassle, etc. You pitch it to the team member's values and sense of worth, as being an improvement to empower the coder and add worth. The next hardest thing is convincing a skeptical management, PMO, Systems Engineering staff, and probably best to not mention it to the Customer for a release or two. Less

- New team (everyone is still forming, norming, storming) so hard to estimate and collaborate - Distributed team members (works best if teams are collocated) - Strong, individual performers. Agile is about team work. - Not having a product owner - etc. Less

It's the people. Getting them to understand the Agile concept, then utilize it. Some developers never get "Fluid Requirements". They want final requirements and that's it. Less

Given an NxN matrix of positive and negative integers, write code to find the submatrix with the largest possible sum.

4 Answers

Actually above answer is wrong...needs correction.

It really depends whether the matrix must be a A*A matrix or just can include the "relevant" numbers (i.e., only eliminate the "problematic" numbers) I asume the later is required. So - We need to go over the matrix and drop the "0"-s it will cost us O(n) We need to check how many negative numbers are there - we need a pair number so if we have an odd one we will drop the smallest one Now, the remaining numbers give us the max number. Less

Whatever your solution is, make sure it runs in O(n^4) time. If you get O(n^6), its ok but it is not what they want. The O(n^4) solution can reduce to O(1) in the best case. (I'm also kind of tired of typing my solutions in, figure it out yourself if you are interested). Less
