three php programmer interviews in two days

I’m exhausted!

Yesterday I had an interview and had to take 3 (three) tests on PHP, MySQL and Javascript. Then this morning I had another interview and had to take another 2 (two) tests on PHP and MySQL, both extremely difficult!

The PHP test taken yesterday was the easiest of the 5 (five) tests. I got a 90% on it.

Then I had the third interview earlier in the afternoon at 2pm, and was tested by 2 (two) programmers who had me solve various logic and coding problems by writing them out on a white board! That last interview took 2 hours.

Has anyone been tested on this problem before?

Yes, now I’m feeling the exhaustion…… this is what I get for submitting my resume to Monster.com! πŸ˜‰

    So how are going to choose the jobs ? Based on the salary or based on how tough the interview questions were ? πŸ™‚

    Sounds promising, 90% sounds great to me! The last programming I did was in assembly language, none of that higher level stuff! πŸ˜‰

    Pat: I took assembly language when I was finishing up my 2 year Certificate Degree at Grossmont College.

    Assembly Language “kicked my butt”. No wonder it was the last programming language. It was by far the toughest. and now I think I’ve forgotten it all…

    Developer: Well, I’m not jumping to conclusions. And not getting my hopes up for nothing. But if so, maybe based on the interview with the tough questions… if they offered me the position. πŸ™‚

    Ah, Assembly Language is just a state of mind. Moving bits around, XORing, pushing/poping the stack, counting machine cycles, ah, the good ol’ days!

    pat: sounds like you remember more than i did regarding assembly. i did get an ‘A’ in the class and my final project was creating a ball that bounced around in the computer screen, the edges of the screen were the boundaries. but i think i forgot it all. i need to read my assembly book just to recall everything.

    will: thanks, man.
