Software Engineer Intern Interview

Software Engineer Intern

Interviewed at RetailMeNot

Interview Details – First interviewed on campus, and was asked some easy problems about OO, and a simple problem about detecting duplicate items in an array.
Invited to Austin to get the on-site interview. I was not prepared well so I didn't perform well in the process. But the problems are not that tough. If you have some basic ideas on linked list, hashmap, tree,etc, I think you can handle that. Also, they focus on web development so they might prefer people who knows python and php.

Interview Question – Some problems on my resume but I was not prepared.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Partner Manager Interview

Partner Manager

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at RetailMeNot.

Interview Details – Process took several weeks. Phone interviews and on-site interview with Partner Management team from VP, Account Director, Partner Manager and Coordinator. You will have multiple individual interviews over several hours and then the team comes back together in a round table format to determine any next steps.

I'm not going to share any competitive detail about the company, team structure changes or salary except that if you want this job? ....Your resume is secondary. Lots of people can do the job, it's not hard. Don't spend all your time researching and educating yourself on the company, industry and role. Your passion for affiliate marketing is primary and you absolutely have to demonstrate that it excites you. ....and they have to like you and believe you!

Interview Question – There are absolutely no difficult questions.   View Answer

Easy Interview

Account Director Interview

Account Director
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at RetailMeNot.

Interview Details – Only got as far as a screening call from the HR person. She was fairly abrupt and not super friendly. They were looking for someone with very specific management experience (having managed a team of 8+) and she ended the interview immediately once realizing I didn't hit the 8 number. I appreciate being clear on the need for the role, but I also think from a relationship standpoint, and for future hiring, they'd want to learn about their candidates and maintain a positive experience.

Interview Question – There weren't really any difficult questions at this phase of the process.   Answer Question

Client Services Department Interview

Client Services Department
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RetailMeNot.

Interview Details – The interviews themselves were not too challenging. The communication from the hiring managers, however, was very terrible. There was an extreme lack of communication early on and throughout the process. Hiring Managers (or whatever the job title) should be very responsible regarding feedback and next steps. At RetailMeNot though, they don't seem to be doing there job very well. I ultimately gave up on the interviewing process because of the extreme lack of professionalism and wouldn't recommend this place to anyone in my network.

Interview Question – Nothing specific or overly challenging.   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Partner Management Coordinator Interview

Partner Management Coordinator

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RetailMeNot in September 2011.

Interview Details – I applied for the Partner Management Coordinator position. I was asked a lot of typical questions until she asked why I left a prior position so soon. I explained it simply was not a good fit and I decided to move on. I could tell she did not like that answer even though in reviewing her background she has done some quality job hopping. She also for whatever reason asked me if I knew Objective C and a bunch of other skills that my resume clearly did not reflect as I'm sure she was desperate to find people with those skills. Clueless HR/recruiter in my opinion.

Interview Question – Walk me through your resume?   Answer Question

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at RetailMeNot in April 2012.

Interview Details – First, I was contacted by the hiring manager for a pre-screening interview. She asked me about my skill set, work experience and what I studied in school. She said she would talk with the hiring manager and get back to me if I fit their qualifications. The next day she called me back, and scheduled a phone interview with the director of the division I was applying for. It was very relaxed and easy-going.

Product Manager Interview

Product Manager
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RetailMeNot in July 2012.

Interview Details – First off, They are looking for people who are self-starters, highly entrepreneurial, have great business sense, and good in technology.

It all started by applying to the website, within 24 hours they contacted me via email and set-up a phone interview with the recruiter. It was basically going over my history. I had a good conversation with the recruiter, and they set-up a phone interview with a Product Manager at the company for a few days later.

That phone interview was basically a repeat, discussing my history and why I was interested in Product management. After that phone interview, they set-up an onsite interview (I live in Austin) for about a week later. The on-site interview was with 5 people, a developer, product manager, business dev, Director of Product and Senior Director of Product.

In all honesty, the interviews didn't seem hard. It was basically a conversation of what they did, and what I have done. I came in well prepared knowing everything about the company, it's strategy, products, and even did background research on the people who would be interviewing me. I had about two pages of questions for each person interviewing me. I was also interviewing them. :-)

I honestly enjoyed the conversations, and perhaps this was one of the reasons I didn't get hired. I was so relaxed that we had great conversations that got a bit side-tracked on technology and innovation. See my post-moratum for details on that.

I left the interviews pretty confident.

The next morning I got an email from the recruiter saying thanks for my time, but I they decided not to go with me.

Interview Question – Honestly, the development interview was probably the hardest because I hadn't prepared for it. I come from a deep technical background, but wasn't in that mind-set during the interview, so took me some seconds to find the answers. They were actually very basic questions, that I made harder than they really were. I got the correct answers, and in a follow-up post-moratum interview with the Developer, he said that wasn't a problem, I passed the technical interview.

There were questions on how to improve the products and coming up with new products in their market. Honestly that's not hard if you ever used their products and spent 5 min on their site. It's full of opportunities to improve. They have bought many different coupon sites, so integration and innovation has a lot of room to improve.

Business Intelligence Analyst Interview

Business Intelligence Analyst
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RetailMeNot in July 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online for this particular position, and they were speedy in setting up a time for me to come in. Interesting bc they wanted to wait until the CEO would be in the office which pushed my interview back a few weeks. Very cool office in downtown Austin, and a great feel throughout the entire office

Interview Question – Pretty basic - Tell us about yourself, basically walking through your resume   Answer Question
