LogMeIn Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Software Testing Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at LogMeIn.
Interview Details – I traveled from one city to another city for an in person interview and did not get reimbursed for the trip. They agreed on travel reimbursement prior to the interview and no further communication after the interview. I wouldn't have spent time and money if I knew before.
In person interview was disorganized and facility had some problems though the interviewers were nice.
2 phone interviews prior to the in person interview - 1 with recruiter and other with hiring manager. Recruiter was new and couldn't answer general questions.
Interview Question – Nothing difficult Answer Question
Systems Administrator Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at LogMeIn in May 2013.
Interview Details – HR recruiter: knows the keywords about the roles he's looking to fill, beyond that good luck with anything in depth.
Spoke with another admin for an hour or so. He gave a test or quiz of sorts, answered all his question. The discussion was pretty technical and we agreed on many key issues. He passed on his notes to the next person I spoke with the Manager of the group.
Spoke with the manager of the group, not a very technical person, probably never been in the trenches. He was clearly more concerned about policies and procedures and how people follow them. I can hear he got a little irritated with my responses due to the fact that I responded to him that I follow industry best practices and standard SLAs. Perhaps they are not using BP/Standard SLAs. The next question, he got really upset about and what really got us into a heated debate was "If you are on 24/7 support, what do you do when your phone/pager goes off at 3am when you are sleeping?"
I responded "uh..pick it up?" I guess that wasn't precisely the right answer, we went off on a tangent about how important 24/7 support is and what to do if your sleeping. Honestly I have been doing this for 15 years, I know what 24/7 support is. We ended the conversation there and proceeded to end the phone screen. Never heard from them again, which is great or else I would not be where I am now.

Marketing Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at LogMeIn in March 2011.
Interview Details – They were an excellent company to interview with. A very dynamic phone screen with the hiring manager and invitation to interview in person. A team of four people from related cross-functional groups. A young, dynamic, intelligent staff who are both fun and pleasant as well as sharp about their business needs.
A lot of very challenging questions - but I thought they were excellent, pointed and well chosen; nothing 'run of the mill'.
The time they afforded me to ask my own detailed questions was excellent as well. I felt I got honest answers to tough questions and no koolaid which was refreshing.

Other Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at LogMeIn in January 2012.
Interview Details – Hiring manager specified that he would not consider any candidate whose work history includes a temporary or contract position. He also specified a a minimum length of time required in each past role. Not very well informed with regards to the job market of recent years (mergers, RIF layoffs, outsourcing, contracting),
Interview Question – Describe your work history. Answer Question
Lead C++ Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at LogMeIn in September 2011.
Interview Details – I found ad on the company's web. Applied on web - not working. Then googled up a mail address and sent CV: got call in a day, we arranged interview. Nornally there is also a written test, that was skipped for me based on vast experience (good point).
The interview was supposedly technical, some talk about past projects (fair), then to implement a library C function on paper (major WTF). Light questions on leadership, zero question on C++. The guy said I passed this, but they select from several candidates and expect call in 2 weeks to have just one other interview with VP. Gor mail in a week that not selected.
I'm put it at 90% chance the company is fake-advertiser, after the process I'm 100% convinced. Will check that ads will stay on for another year just as they were up for at least half in the past.
Interview Question – Implement function str_replace that replaces all instances of substring to other in a passed string. In just C. On paper. View Answer
UI Designer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at LogMeIn in July 2010.
Interview Details – First I talked to an HR girl who found my resume interesting. Then I had a 1x1 meeting one of the team leaders. It was a fairly informal conversation. No technical details were asked. Rather the guy talked trying to let me know what they do. There was some confusion about the process because I applied for a UI designer position, however my interviewer was looking for a programmer. They decided not to have me for the programmer job due to the lack of C# knowledge. They still wanted to go on with me for as aUI designer but I changed my mind because I also wanted to keep in touch with programming.
Interview Question – What client side frameworks did I use? View Answer
Operations Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at LogMeIn in April 2010.
Interview Details – This company comes across as very disorganized in the interview process. I was intitally contacted by the recruiter, had a phone interview for a position that had nothing to do with my experience. I later interviewed for a different position. Both people I interviewed with came across as being extremely arrogant. I did not puruse the opportunity any further
