    What sort of questions do interviewers ask you when your applying?

    Anyone that has went in for a interview for programming or computer science, what kind of questions should people be prepared to answer?

    I have heard that people get turned down because they couldn't code a application in a language they said they had experience with. Has anyone encountered this?

    This varies a great deal depending on the specific discipline youre aiming at. As far as questions they like to hear.... shit about "how is the culture here?" lol

    Do some research on who you're applying for and what exactly they're looking for. Know who you're working for.

    Google it. There are many premade interviews where you can test your talking skills.
    Never lie though, you will get caught eventually.

    Depends greatly on the company, the position etc. In general, questions which test your fundamental knowledge may be asked. Languages generally dont matter. Eg. I was asked the best solution to find the the ball whose weight was different than the other 99 balls, from among 100 balls.

    Where do you see yourself in few years?
    This one is often used anywhere. Be ready to answer as a "hard working" and going up. Otherwise they might start thinking you're here only for a while as they usually need someone for looong time.

    Hiring Managers generally are interested in situational issues. How do you handle issues?

    "Someone isn't doing XYZ, what do you do?"
    "What was a time when you didn't deliver something?"

    etc

    Avoid trying to paint yourself as unflawed. Give good answers but don't paint yourself as weak.

    Awful: "Whenever I miss deadlines, it's because someone else hasn't delivered something"
    Bad: "I've never missed a deadline"
    Good: "I occasionally miss deadlines, usually when bigger issues pop up"
    Great: "I'm by no means perfect, I try to keep on schedule, but I will miss things occasionally. When I do I'm sure to let my manager know ASAP, if needed."

    When it comes to coding problems (white board interviews) think out loud and don't be scared if you don't know the answer. They are looking for smart, hard working people that are good at finding a solution. No employer will expect you to know everything, but you are expected to try and solve whatever problems are thrown at you. That is because coding is that, solving problems it's not knowing the answers to everything.
    Also if you don't know something just ask. You will most likely be working in a team and will be expected to communicate with one another.
