Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Yodle in January 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted by one of their internal recruiters. First there was a very long talk from the recruiter trying to pitch the company and then a mini technical screening with the recruiter himself, then a 45 minute interview with an engineering manager, and finally a few rounds of interviews on site.

Despite what the recruiter said, his technical background was not strong and it showed in the questions he asked. The regular phone interview with the manager was much more standard, covering my background and some average technical questions done through a shared coding site.

The on site was three rounds of technical interviews and one interview with a product owner. Yodle claims to want engineers to work close with product owners and to drive new ideas, hence the final interview. The technical interviews were straight forward, somewhat easy. I liked the people quite a bit, though. Product owner didn't really come across as interested or prepared for the interview.

In the end, the office space didn't impress me and the recruiter was very pushy. Once they decided to make an offer, I heard from him once or twice a day trying to get me to say yes. They were prepared to make a very good offer, though.

Interview Question – There weren't any of noticeable difficulty.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The company didn't excite me and the recruiter was way to pushy for my liking.

Marketing Consultant Interview

Marketing Consultant
Scottsdale, AZ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Yodle in September 2012.

Interview Details – I interviewed with 4 separate managers and they all appeared very concerned that I understand the role and had the requisite skill sets to be successful within the role. I was impressed that each manager actually wanted to get to know me a little bit and each represented a different marketing channel within the organization. That way each could weigh in on where my skills and experience may be best utilized.

Interview Question – One of the team leads asked me a word problem to see how I would react. He didn't really care if I got the answer right, he just wanted to see if I could handle a situation in which I wasn't prepared before hand.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was unable to negotiate but I would encourage others to do so. Their starting salaries for the associate and consultant positions are pretty low, I would say there is at least $5k worth of wiggle room provided you have the experience or education to back up the reason for your request.

Data Supervisor Interview

Data Supervisor
Austin, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Yodle in September 2013.

Interview Details – Numerous questions about managing even though the position is entry level staff and is not considered a "management" role. The role is tied to sales directly and has direct management duties towards sales and sales management. To say the lease you will be running the sales teams with data driven decision making while the sales managers baby sit the sales people and relay your findings making them the stars of the show with your work.

Interview Question – Nothing in specific, the interviewer is inexperienced in management themselves therefor the questions asked do not pertain to the position offered.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiations, zero they will not negotiate salary.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Yodle in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied Online and then received an email saying that they were looking elsewhere. Then, oddly, I was contacted by recruiter for phone interview. It was pretty causal and friendly. I suppose I did well because the recruiter then set up second interview with someone at the company for a couple weeks later.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you showed leadership   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – turnover rate is extremely high, not a fan of cold calling

Search Marketing Manager Interview

Search Marketing Manager
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Yodle in July 2009.

Interview Details – Three rounds of interviews. Started with members of the team and then with the VP of Search Marketing. These guys really put you through the grinder. I've interviewed with the likes of Google and Yahoo and these guys are worse. Worthless brainteasers thrown at you, problem solving questions that barely relate to the job. Lot's of questions and thoughts on Google algorithm, CTR, etc..

Interview Question – there's a duck and chicken on one side of the river and a goat on the other, you have a boat that only holds two people. get them across but can't leave the goat and the chicken, or something to that extent. so dumb.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I really didn't like the vibe of the people I interviewed with and the company in general.
