I've got a big time interview tomorrow that I'm nervous about. I went to the career services center here at tech and found it really helpful but I want to get some more practice and get a better idea of what to expect.

So what questions have you all been presented with in interviews?

most of my interviews have been behavioral based where they ask you a question like "tell me about a time when _________ and how did you _________"

the only job interview I've ever done bad in was when I interviewed for Chevron, and they had this gay ass "S T A R" format you were supposed to answer their questions in, which meant "Situation, blah blah blah, Response"

It's just like ... ask me a fucking question, I'll give you a fucking answer, if you like enough of them hire me, if not oh well.

It was gay.

What type of company are you interviewing with? If it's a regular company they'll ask you regular questions. If you're interviewing for Google, you're going to have to explain how to mathematically solve a Rubix cube verbally.

Yes?
