    Senior Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    interviewed at Chegg in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The HR recruiting folks were very helpful and pretty reliable in terms of the timelines, getting back to me etc. The interview process was pretty clear and fairly efficient: one detailed phone screen with HR, one detailed technical phone screen, and then on-site interview. They notify candidates on whether they'd make an offer by the end of the on-site interview. So, overall, a very efficient process.

    Interview Questions
    • What was most unexpected was that most of their data scientists are coming from non-computational and non-statistical backgrounds (geography, political science etc.) but they are very particular about e.g. detailed SQL technical questions during on-site interviews.   Answer Question

    Designer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Chegg.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn first. The position looked interesting, so I decided to pursue the process. However, when I replied to the recruiter, it seems that he didn't even remember he reached out to me first. That was the first time that I had a bit weird feeling about this company. After the initial screen, I had an opportunity to speak with the design manager. He was really nice, and passionate about what he's been working on. We both had a great time, and he told me he wants to bring me in to the next round on-site interview on the phone. A week after, I visited the Santa Clara office. I did design presentation and met a couple on people 1:1. The atmosphere during the presentation wasn't that great. I felt a lot of pressure, and they asked me a bunch of questions before I explain the thing, which was distracting. Overall experience was okay, but during the interview I already had a feeling I'm not a great fit. Because what they are looking for and what I've experienced and been expecting for next role is completely different. I wrote thank you email and my impression frankly to the recruiter. At the end, he didn't even reply to my email. It was really disappointing. Overall, I don't think it's worth to spend my time on this opportunity.

    First, HR emailed me and a couple of days later I had a phone interview with HR about 30 minutes. Then a week later I got a phone interview with principle designers at Chegg about 30 minutes as well. Most questions were based on my portfolio. I not only show them the results of my design but also tell them about the whole process.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Chegg in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to Chegg, but not through an employee. I sent our family friend my resume and then I got a call from the intern manager about a week later. She was super nice and we discussed my resume and my career interests. We scheduled a formal interview via phone and she called me back a week later. The interview was about 30 mins with her giving me an introduction of Chegg, asking me questions and then letting me ask her questions. She then said she'd follow up with me. About a week later she called me with a few options of internships in marketing that'd I'd be good for. I gaveher my opinions. Then a week after that I was offered a marketing internship. I was so excited and accepted on the spot!
