Intern Interview

Intern

Interviewed at MySpace

Interview Details – The interview process was fairly informal, as it seemed to be somewhere in between a tour and an interview. As this was a fairly long time ago, I can't remember any specific questions that I was asked. I can say that there weren't any questions that hit me off guard, as they were simple questions with the intent to get to know the applicant.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself   Answer Question

Director Interview

Director
Beverly Hills, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at MySpace in January 2009.

Interview Details – It was a one-week process, as they were in a high-growth phase and needed bodies quickly. There was one initial interview with the hiring manager, then two follow-up interviews with other staff members. Questions were straightforward -- no curveballs. Cultural fit and passion for the product seemed to be the top priority.

Interview Question – Really none to speak of. I was asked what 1-2 things I would do to improve MySpace, which was easy to answer at the time because the site was still popular/growing, so I had tons of ideas. But if someone were asked that question now... yikes.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Quick, straightforward. I think it was two phone calls over two days. The offer wasn't anything to write home about, but the site was so popular at the time that they had all the leverage. Didn't get them to budge much.

Database Developer Interview

Database Developer
Beverly Hills, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at MySpace in October 2008.

Interview Details – I had one phone interview, and one three hour in person interview. This was the most organized technical interview I have ever been on. The architect had three exercises for me to do. A batching exercise, a partition exercise, and something about service broker. The hiring process was fast, so expect a call within a few days after the interview if things went well.

Interview Question – I was not expecting to be asked about horizontal partitioning. They deal with quite a bit of data over there.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very straightforward. The offer was good, and I took it.
