    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Bankrate.

    Interview Details

    I submitted for the position online. I was contacted by HR and set up an interview. I met with HR and then a couple of managers from the department. The interview was fairly simple and straight forward. It lasted maybe an hour or so. I was offered the position very quickly and I accepted.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked if I could spell the word "mortgage" because that's about the only skill you need for this job.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. They told me the range of salary for the department and they offered me the max.

    Interview Details

    interview process dragged on for two months. Was initially interviewed by recruiter, then a bankrate employee in NYC. The latter had me complete assignment after assignment, week after week, and droned on endlessly about himself during a phone interview. the job is still open, six months later.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bankrate.

    Interview Details

    Technical phone screen:

    Technical questions are asked and if pass then they will ask you for an in person interview the following week.

    In Person:

    First part of interview with polished empathetic manager introducing himself spending 45 minutes asking questions about background and understanding the candidate.

    Second part of interview with developers white board exercises asking comprehensive, conceptual walk through scenarios.

    Third part of interview is an ambush. Two narcissistic inexperienced architects asking pointed questions, questioning credibility of candidate, and not wanting to know if the candidate can do the job, but satisfying their own egos at the expense of the candidate. What is really demented, is they seem to enjoy themselves, relishing in the candidates uneasiness. There is another candidate on this site that states they answered a question correctly but was told they were incorrect. I would assume by these two architects.

    Fourth part of interview. Follow up with manager.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Bankrate in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I always demand feedback, before starting any lengthy tech test. Bankrate reneged on its promise. I should be glad that I only wasted 1 weekend on their behalf. They have a polished show, but some things did not add up.

    Interview Questions
    • The only challenge is the time that their tech test takes. The only unexpected part, is that you are not to ask questions, once the test is sent to you, so ask ahead of time.   Answer Question
