Coding JavaScript Interview Questions and Answers


It’s not all coding!

You will face JavaScript coding interview questions in a JavaScript job interview.


That’s not your only hurdle.

Here’s a tip from Sam Gavis-Hughson, founder of coding interview prep site Byte-by-Byte:

“Coding-specific questions are common at smaller companies, but big companies like Google and Facebook tend not to ask language-specific questions.”

Unicorns want well-rounded pros. They want full-stack, great, smart employees who know computer science back-to-front.

That said, you can’t walk into that JS jobs interview cold. Sharpen your coding chops with these advanced and basic JavaScript interview questions and answers:

JavaScript innerHTML Interview Question #1

Q: What will this innerHTML code output? Why?


function MessageA(){

document.getElementById('myMsg').innerHTML = 'Nice hat!';


function MessageB(){

document.getElementById('myMsg').innerHTML = 'Looks good on you though!';



<input type="button" onclick="MessageA()" value="You sir">

<input type="button" onclick="MessageB()" value="are a menace!">

<p id="myMsg"></p>

A: The output will be two buttons. One called “You sir” and the other “are a menace!” If we click the first, “Nice hat!” appears. If we click the second we see, “Looks good on you though!”

innerHTML JavaScript Interview Question #2

Q: What will this code output? Why?

var a = 2;

function outer() {

var a = 3;

function inner() {


var a = 4;






A: The output is “4” because the inner function logs its own a variable.

Typeof JavaScript Coding Interview Question #1

Q: What could go wrong when using typeof demo === "object" to check if demo is an object? How can we avoid the problem?

A: Using typeof demo === "object" will tell us if demo is an object. But null is an object. So the following code will log true to the console:

var demo = null;

console.log(typeof demo === "object");

If we know this, we can check if demo is both an object and null:

console.log((demo !== null) && (typeof demo === "object"));

JavaScript doesn’t classify functions or arrays as objects. To include them in our search, we can amend the code like:

console.log((demo !== null) && ((typeof demo === "object") || (typeof demo === "function")) && (! $.isArray(demo)));

Or in JQuery we can say:

console.log((demo !== null) && (typeof demo === "object") && (! $.isArray(demo)));

Typeof JavaScript Interview Question #2

Q: What’s the output of the code below in the console log? Why?


var x = y = 7;


console.log("x defined? " + (typeof x !== 'undefined'));

console.log("y defined? " + (typeof y !== 'undefined'));

A: The output is:

x defined? false

y defined? true

You might think typeof x and typeof y are undefined.

But that’s only if you think var x = y = 7 means:

var y = 7;

var x = y;

But actually it means:

y = 7;

var x = y;

In this case, y is a global variable. It’s in scope outside the function that created it. But we created x with var, so it’s a local variable. It’s undefined outside the function.

However, if we use strict mode, we’ll get a runtime error:

ReferenceError: y is not defined.

So—strict mode is our best bet for avoiding bugs in this case.

JavaScript Convert String to Number Interview Question

Q: Convert the string “8675309” to a number.

A: To convert a string to a number, we can use the Number() function:

var x = "8675309";

var y = Number(x);

JavaScript HTML Textbox Interview Question

Q: How would you get the value of an HTML textbox with JavaScript?

A: With the document.getElementById() method:



<script type="text/javascript">

function workWithTextBox() { var myBox = document.getElementById('MYBOX'); // perform action ... }




<input type="text" id="MYBOX">



=== vs == JavaScript Interview Question

Q: What will this code output and why:

console.log("87" === 87);

console.log("87" == 87);

console.log(false === 0);

console.log(false == 0);

A: The output will be:





In JavaScript, === means same value and type. But == tries to convert the values to the same type before comparing. In the first line, “87” is a string and 87 is a number, so it’s false. In the second, == converts “87” to 87 before comparing them.

The last two lines are more confusing. Of course false ===0 is false. But in the last line, == will convert both 0 and false into a false boolean.

For more on this confusing anomaly, see this SitePoint post.

JavaScript Array Methods Interview Question #1

Q: What’s the output from the code below and why?

var array1 = "sean".split('');

var array2 = array1.reverse();

var array3 = "brown".split('');


console.log("First array length is " + array1.length + " and surname is " + array1.slice(-1));

console.log("Second array length is " + array2.length + " and surname is " + array2.slice(-1));

A: The output is:

First array length is 5 and surname is b,r,o,w,n

Second array length is 5 and surname is b,r,o,w,n

Because the two arrays are the same:

['n','a','e','s', ['b','r','o','w','n'] ]

That’s because:

  1. Calling the reverse() method returns the letters in reverse order. But it also reverses the array (array1).
  2. When we use the reverse() method in line 2, we create array2 as a reference to array1, not a copy of it. So when we use array2.push(array3) we affect array1 too. That’s because they’re both referring to the same object.


When we use the push() method to push array3 to array2, we add the entire array3 to the end of array2. We don’t concatenate the two arrays. (The concat() method does that.)

Array Methods JavaScript Interview Question #2

Q: In the following code, if the array is too large, we’ll get a stack overflow. How would you fix this without removing the recursive pattern?

var array1 = processBigArray();

var newArrayEntry = function() {

var entry = array1.pop();

if (entry) {

// do something to the current entry...




A: We can avoid a stack overflow by changing the newArrayEntry function:

var array1 = processBigArray();

var newArrayEntry = function() {

var entry = array1.pop();

if (entry) {

// do something to the current entry...

setTimeout(newArrayEntry, 0);



That code eliminates the stack overflow because setTimeout(function, 0) clears the call stack before moving on to the next iteration.

JavaScript Convert to String Interview Question

Q: What will the code below output? Why?



<p id="x"></p>


try {

bar("Hi there!");


catch(error1) {

document.getElementById("x").innerHTML = error1.message;





A: The above code outputs: “bar is not defined” The catch block catches the error and displays it using the innerHTML() property.

JavaScript Hash Table Interview Question

Q: What is a hash table? Implement a simple one.

A: A hash table is a way to identify objects based on keys. We can implement a simple hash table like this:

var a = new Object();

a['first'] = 2;

a['second'] = 3;

a['third'] = 4;

// show values

for (var b in a) {

// filter keys

if (a.hasOwnProperty(b)) {

alert('key: ' + b + ', value: ' + a[b]);



Singleton Javascript Interview Question

Q: What is a “Singleton?” Implement a simple one.

A: A Singleton is when a class has one instance only, with a global point to access it. We can implement one with an immediate anonymous function:

var my_Single = (function () {

var iteration;

function createIteration() {

var obj = new Object("This is the iteration");

return obj;


return {

getInstance: function () {

if (!iteration) {

Iteration = createIteration();


return iteration;




function run() {

var iteration1 = my_Single.getInstance();

var iteration2 = my_Single.getInstance();

alert("Same iteration? " + (iteration1 === iteration2));


Javascript FizzBuzz Interview Question [Modulo Operator]

Q: Write code to print all the numbers between 1 and 100. But in place of multiples of 3, print “Fizz” and for multiples of 5 print “Buzz.” When a number is a multiple of both, print, “FizzBuzz.” (Solution from CodeBurst.)

for (var i=1; i < 101; i++){

if (i % 15 == 0) console.log("FizzBuzz");

else if (i % 3 == 0) console.log("Fizz");

else if (i % 5 == 0) console.log("Buzz");

else console.log(i);


That FizzBuzz question is among the most popular JS interview questions employers ask. All it really does is test if you know the modulo operator %.

Pro Tip: Not sure if your JavaScript interview question code will work? Try this nifty online JavaScript tester. Plug in your code and watch it fly. Keep it open in a window for remote JavaScript interviews.

Non-Coding JavaScript Interview Questions

Prep for non-coding JavaScript interview questions or you’re cooked.


Well, picture this—

You drill 50 JS interview questions until you’ve got them cold.

But then the interviewer asks a bunch of general non-JavaScript coding interview questions.

What’s an abstract class? Is JS thread safe? Is it pass-by-value or pass-by-reference?

Uh, I don’t know. I can do it, but I can’t explain it.


Let these JavaScript basic interview questions get you exception-safe before the interview.

Basic JavaScript Interview Questions and Answers [Non-Coding]

Q: What is innerHTML and what is it used for?

A: innerHTML is a JavaScript property used to set or get HTML content in an element node. For example, it can change the text in an HTML element from “Hello” to “World” based on some user action, like a button click.

Q: What is JavaScript typeof and how is it used?

A: We use the typeof operator to get the data type of an operand. Typeof tells if a function, variable, or object is an object, function, string, boolean, or undefined.

Q: How can you use JavaScript to set or get the contents of an HTML textbox?

A: With the HTML DOM input property getElementById().

Q: How can we find JavaScript string length?

A: With the string length property (syntax: var new_variable = old_variable.length;)

Q: How would you handle a list with JavaScript?

A: We handle lists in JavaScripts with arrays, set up with the syntax: var array_name = [entry1, entry2, ...];

Q: How many JavaScript array methods are there and which are the most useful?

A: There are 30 JavaScript array methods. Among the most useful are:

  • toString()—JavaScript array to string
  • pop() and push()—remove the last element from an array or add one to the end
  • shift() and unshift()—remove the first element or add one to the beginning
  • splice()—add or remove array items
  • concat()—merge arrays
  • slice()—slice out part of an array and put it in a new array
  • forEach()—loop through array
  • filter()—create a new array with chosen elements
  • map()—make a new array based on a function
  • sort()—rearrange the array order

Pro Tip: Could you face “how does the internet work” as a JavaScript interview question? Yep. Bone up.

Q: What’s the difference between == and === in JavaScript?

A: Javascript has two equality tests: === and ==. The first one, === is strict equality. It checks if both the data and the type of are equal. If yes, JS returns true and if not, false. Meanwhile, == is loose equality. It tries to coerce the type before it checks. So, if we check 88=='88' the answer will be true, even though one is a number and the other a string.

Q: Is JavaScript thread safe?

A: JavaScript is single-threaded. Each execution thread finishes before the next starts, so JS has no thread safety issues.

Q: What is strict JavaScript and when and how should we use it?

A: JavaScript’s strict mode was introduced in ECMAScript5. It’s a way to opt out of “sloppy” JavaScript. It cleans up a lot of issues with non-strict code. Some browsers don’t support it so it must be used with rigorous testing. We invoke it by adding 'use strict'; to the start of a script.

Q: What’s the HTML DOM and how does JavaScript interact with it?

A: The HTML DOM is the Document Object Model. It’s the interface that lets JavaScript access and change the content and structure of a web page. JS uses different methods and events to dynamically change HTML, including document.getElementById() and innerHMTL.

Q: How do we print to console with JavaScript?

A: The JavaScript console object has methods that let us write directly to browser’s debug console, eg. console.log(). Debug console also lets us enter JS code directly into it, for quick testing.

Pro Tip: Have you got GitHub projects? Asking to talk about them is a favorite JavaScript interview question, so be ready. Review your favorites that fit the job.

Q: How would you change an array into a comma-separated list?

A: Use the array.join() method. To change the commas to a different separator, put the new separator between the parentheses.

Q: What’s the difference between && and || and ! in JavaScript? What are $ and !==?

A: The first three are logical operators meaning and, or, and not. The next, $, is a JavaScript identifier like any letter of the alphabet. It’s often used as an alias by JS libraries like JQuery. The last symbol, !==, means “not equal value or type.”

Q: How would you find a value in an array?

A: You could use the find() method to find the value or findIndex() to find the index of the element. Use Array.prototype.indexOf() or Array.prototype.includes() to find position or if an element exists.

Q: What is a memory leak in JavaScript? How do you detect one and how should you release memory?

A: A memory leak is a resource leak in JS. It happens when a program manages memory allocations incorrectly so unneeded memory isn’t properly released. We can detect them in Google Chrome by hitting F12, then using the memory tool’s Record Allocation Timeline feature to check for leaks. In JS, memory should be released by setting unused global variables to undefined or null so garbage collection can remove them. We can do this with an array called my_large_array with my_large_array=null.

Pro Tip: Does the company use React? Get ready for advanced JavaScript interview questions around how React uses higher order components or render props.

Q: What’s an abstract class? How is it different from an interface?

A: An abstract class is a class with an abstract method or methods. They aren’t standard in JavaScript, though we can implement them. Interfaces are programming structures that let the computer pass properties to an object (class).

Q: Does JavaScript support multiple inheritance?

A: No. Each object in JS has a single “prototype” object. However, we can add behaviors to classes with mixins.

Q: How would you find the intersection of 2 arrays of integers with JavaScript?

A: With Array.prototype.filter and Array.prototype.indexOf, like this: array1.filter(value => array2.includes(value))

Q: Is JavaScript pass-by-value or pass-by-reference?

A: JavaScript is always pass-by-value. Changing a variable’s value doesn’t change the underlying string or number. However, with objects the variable's value is a reference.

Q: Will console.log(0.1 + 0.2); produce 0.3? Why or why not?

A: No. It returns 0.30000000000000004 because JavaScript treats numbers with floating point precision.

Q: What are the six kinds of JavaScript exceptions?

A: They are:

  1. EvalError: eval() function used incorrectly.
  2. RangeError: Numeric variable exceeds the range allowed.
  3. ReferenceError: Tried to access non-existent object member.
  4. SyntaxError: Incorrect JS syntax.
  5. TypeError: A method expected a different type of value.
  6. URIError: Happens when we use the decodeURI() or encodeURI() functions incorrectly.

Q: What is a closure?

A: A closure is a JavaScript feature where an inner function can access variables of the outer or “enclosing” function.

Q: How does “this” work?

A: In JavaScript, “this” disambiguates our code by pointing to the correct scope of the variable. It’s a kind of shortcut to a variable. It’s undefined until the function it’s defined in is invoked.

JavaScript Programming Assignments

Heads up!

They might not ask any JavaScript coding interview questions.

At least, not like the ones in job search articles.

Instead, they might give you a few programming assignments.

These next few advanced JavaScript interview questions for experienced applicants will validate your JS skills.

Task #1

Design an algorithm that normalizes a string containing a URL. Our URL list has become corrupted so the URLs have double dots (..) and triple slashes (///). Use JavaScript to remove all extra characters from the string.

Task #2

Create an algorithm that multiplies two very large numbers that wouldn’t fit into ordinary data types and are given as a string.

Task #3

Design an algorithm that uses JavaScript to shuffle a pack of cards.

Task #4

Using JavaScript, write an algorithm that finds and displays a user’s ZIP code.

Still worried you can’t ace basic JavaScript interview questions? Don’t sweat it much. Seasoned developers remind us that ignorance of one programming language usually isn’t a deal-breaker.

Big fish like Amazon look for “fungible” developers. That means they want engineers who can work across the stack, are smart, and can quickly pick up on new things.

Fundamental computer science concepts matter most. Brush up on data structures and object-oriented programming concepts like inheritance, polymorphism, abstraction, encapsulation, and recursion.

Pro Tip: Don’t know the answer to a JavaScript coding interview question? Think out loud. “I’d probably try this and if that failed I’d do some Googling and testing. It’d take me about twenty minutes to get it right.”

What makes you special? Yep, that’s a legit JavaScript interview question. See our guide: How to Answer What Makes You Unique—Samples & Interview Guide


Math and Logic Questions for JavaScript Interviews

They’ll probably give some math and logic puzzles with their JS interview questions.


To see if you can make a reasoned estimate based on logic and available data.

In other words, are you smart? Or do you just know how to code?

Use these math/logic JavaScript interview questions and answers to prep for inevitable curve balls.

Q: How many gas stations are in the United States?

Why they ask: To see if you can make good estimates based on available data. You might see variations on this JavaScript interview question.

A: Well, I grew up in a town of about 20,000, and I’d say there were about 20 gas stations. That means about one station for every 1,000 people. So if that holds true for the rest of the country, and the US population is 330 million, we’d have about 165,000 gas stations. (In fact there are 168,000.)

Q: You have 10 bottles with 100 pills each. Nine of every 10 bottles have pills that weigh 1 gram, but one in 10 has pills that weigh 1.1 grams. How could you find the heavy bottles if you could use a scale only once?

Why they ask: To test your math and problem-solving skills.

A: Take one pill from bottle #1, two from #2, and so on for a total of 55 pills. If they were all light, they’d weigh 55 grams. But if the heavy pills are in bottle #1, you’ll have 55.1 grams. If in bottle #2, 55.2 grams, and so on.

Q: How would you find a specific book in a large library with no cataloguing system?

Why they ask: To see if you can make good decisions in the face of open-ended problems.

A: Without a cataloguing system, the only guaranteed way to find the right book is an exhaustive search. Assuming time is limited, we should look for storage patterns. For instance, we could check the first three books of every 15th row. If we still don’t see a pattern, we could vary our granularity and check every 5th or 30th row. We could speed the process up through parallelization (having friends search different parts of the library.

Q: Which way should a car key turn to unlock the door?

Why they ask: To see if you’ll waste time on insignificant problems.

A: The “right” answer is that it should turn right, since there are more right-handed people. But it’s arbitrary, so you shouldn’t waste a lot of time on it.

Q: You have to measure 4 gallons of water, but you only have a 5-gallon jar and a 3-gallon jar. How can you do it?

Why they ask: To test your math and logic skills.

A: Fill the big jar. Fill the small jar from it, then empty the small jar. Pour the two gallons from the big jar into the small jar. Fill the big jar again. Use it to fill the small jar to the brim. Now there are four gallons of water in the big jar.

Pro Tip: Vying for a job at CloudGuru? They use JavaScript (and particlularly Node.JS) heavily in their serverless web applications and courses.

“Tell me about yourself.” Ugh. The worst of all JavaScript interview questions. See our guide: Tell Me About Yourself: Interview Question & How to Answer [Example]


General Computer Science Questions for JavaScript Interviews

Why study general computer science concepts along with JS interview questions?

To quote Yoda:

Not ready are you.

“Full stack” means you’re not just limited to JavaScript. You didn’t just take some W3Schools lessons and fill out the application.

They want to know you’re three-dimensional.

Use these basic JavaScript interview questions and answers to prove it.

Q: What does “exception safe” mean?

A: Exception safe code follows guidelines to handle exceptions so the software explains its bugs and errors.

Q: In an object-oriented language, what’s the difference between “HAS-A” and “IS-A?” In other words, define inheritance vs ownership.

A: An IS-A relationship is based on inheritance as in “X is a Y kind of thing.” A HAS-A relationship is based on references, like “fish have fins” or “cars have wheels.”

Q: What’s a “priority queue?”

A: Priority Queue is a queue where each item has a priority, a high-priority element gets dequeued before low-priority elements, and elements with the same priority are served depending on their order within the queue.

Q: What does “dequeue” mean?

A: To remove or process an item from a queue.

Q: What is Big O and why is it important?

A: Big O is a notation for an algorithm’s complexity or performance. O(1) would be an algorithm that uses the same amount of processing resources no matter how much data gets thrown at it. O(N) algorithms take more time to crunch bigger data sets, in a linear relationship. O(N2) is an algorithm where the processing power needed is in direct proportion to the square of the data set size. O(2N) means growth doubles with every addition to the data set.

Pro Tip: Get ready for a few Node JavaScript interview questions. Brush up on the event loop, graphQL, and some general HTTP questions.

Q: What is polymorphism and why is it important?

A: Polymorphism is a tenet of Object Oriented Programming (OOP). It’s where we design objects with shared behaviors we can override in special cases. Polymorphism uses inheritance. It’s a core concept in OOP because it vastly simplifies programming

Q: What are the different OOPS principles?

A: They are:

  1. Encapsulation: Grouping data and methods in a single unit called a class.
  2. Inheritance: Passing on attributes and methods from one class to another.
  3. Abstraction: Managing complexity through hiding unneeded details from the user.
  4. Polymorphism: When different types of objects can be accessed through a single interface.

Q: What is inheritance?

A: Inheritance is when a parent class passes a property or properties to a child class.

Questions to Ask in a JavaScript Interview

They’re not the only ones who should ask JavaScript interview questions.

Ask the hiring manager some questions too. You need to show you know your stuff. But you also need a snapshot of what it’s like to work there. Try:

  • Do you use continuous integration?
  • What’s your testing environment like?
  • Do you write tests?
  • How do you handle peer review?
  • What’s your management style?
  • What’s your tech stack like?
  • What tools do you use?

If they’re happy to talk about this stuff, it’s probably a good company. If they get agitated, they’ve got monsters in the closet, so beware.

A Note About Frameworks

A lot of companies these days use JS frameworks. Their JS interview questions will be particular to whatever framework they use (eg Angular).


Before the interview, find out if they use a JS framework and study up on it.
