Hey all 👋
I am back with another article, this time it’s Netflix OA for SWE Summer Internship for California, US.
Result Status : ✔️
Test Experience: ✔️
I was successful in clearing the Online Assessment Round, however the team had already hired desired candidates 😔. As per the mail, the team has saved my profile for future internships. I am not sure if that actually works…
How I applied ?
I applied online through career portal with NO referral. If you have read my previous articles, you might be knowing that I never apply using career portals, but this time it was unplanned.
I actually had no intention of applying to Netflix that too California 😆 However, one day I was working on my resume and wanted to build a resume that would be shortlisted by companies even without a referral. So, I was using different resume text formats and applying to different international companies, just to verify my resume 🙈
This is how my resume got shortlisted by Netflix.
After applying I received a mail from Netflix to update my resume and few details. I suppose this is a step everyone who applies to Netflix has to follow as I applied for 2 different positions and received a mail to complete my profile for both the profiles.
After 1 day of screening I received the link to the Online Assessment.
Duration: 70 minutes
Total Questions: 4
Difficulty in terms of Leetcode problems : Easy, Medium, Medium, Hard
However, irrespective of the difficulty, every question had a score of 300.
Score Distribution and my Score
Problem A : 300/300
Problem B : 300/300
Problem C : 300/300
Problem D : 10/300
Code Writing Skills : 68/100
Problem Solving Skills : 57/100
Speed : 75/100
Besides, I had actually written the correct code for D problem as well. However, I couldn’t run/submit it on time. So I have considered the score of my submitted attempt in this report.
Improvements Required: The Recruitment process could be a lot quicker. It took the team 2 months to send me the mail.
It was a well designed test. 70 minutes might seem difficult, but they are appropriate for the questions.
