    Professional Services Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Brightedge Technologies.

    Interview Details

    Two preliminary phone calls. They then set up a 2 hour long Skype interview where you interview with 4 different team members for about 30 minutes each. They ask the typical interview questions along with one or two "outside the box" questions that are supposed to gauge your thought process on analyzing complex problems.

    Waited 2 weeks to hear back from the Skype interview. Finally got a brief email saying they were going to continue seating other candidates.

    It was a waste of time in terms of not getting the offer, but the challenging interview gave me some good interview experience moving forward. I just wish they hadn't left me waiting for 2 weeks... they probably knew they weren't going to hire me right after the Skype interview.

    Enterprise Business Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Brightedge Technologies in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at my university's career fair in late October, which helped me to establish my initial contact with the company. I was contacted a month later by a recruiter to have an informal 20 minute interview. Since I was interested in working in their Chicago office, I was then put in contact with the manager in Chicago, where I was interviewed after Winter Break specifically for a position in the Chicago office. I was then prompted to take an online assessment to test my knowledge and basic understanding of sales/SEO. After satisfactorily completing the assessment, I was invited to a career day in February.

    All and all, the interview process was sloppy. The recruiters dropped the ball a couple of times on scheduling interviews for me by scheduling them on days and times different than the ones we agreed upon. Furthermore, the scheduling of my career day was botched once before a successful scheduling. I eventually flew out to their Chicago office, instead of the usual visit to San Mateo. This made for a peculiar career today, as this event that was normally supposed to have lasted most of a day turned into a mere 45 minute interview. This was irritating since I had flown out to Chicago and back to have an interaction that could have just as easily been done via Skype. Contact with the recruiters to arrange this career day was difficult and it would often take days for them to respond.

    Enterprise Business Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Brightedge Technologies in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I had a first round phone interview, then quit the application process. Communication was poor and the structure of the process that was supposed to be followed was not. It was definitely indicative of the poor culture that has been alluded to in other Glassdoor reviews. There was, however, a substantial and useful amount of information provided about the company and the position itself, which was not actually outlined particularly well in the advertisement.

    Interview Questions
    • "Why Sales?" and "Why Brightedge?" I was then essentially just asked to talk through my resume, experiences, and qualifications. It was incredibly straightforward, and the interviewer definitely did most of the talking in an attempt to articulate the nature of Brightedge.   Answer Question

    SEO Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Brightedge Technologies.

    Interview Details

    Got a call from recruiter, spoke with hiring manager, came in person, 3 hours- 4 people, heard yes the next day in morning. Process was quick but recruiter didn't share all the facts about company and team and work culture. I also didn't look at Glassdoor before starting here (my mistake). Check the facts with hiring manager.

    Negotiation Details
    I din't negotiate. Offer was good and I didn't had any other option at the time.

    Interview Details

    One round of on-compus interview, one on-line code challenge, one round phone interview (behavior), and one final on-site interview. The on-site interview involves 2 interviews and one code-challenge. The whole process takes around 4 weeks. The process is a little depressing, and you can feel the competition between you and other interviewees.

    Interview Questions
    • The on-site interview involves 2 interviews and one code-challenge. It involves JDBC and web scrawler. The code challenge is not that hard, however, the interviewer's request is not that clear.   Answer Question
