    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Chegg.

    Interview

    It was a standard process until I got to the first technical interview. It was a guy with a heavy accent talking on a poor cell phone connection making up trivia questions as he went along. By far the worst interview I have experienced. Totally unprofessional. I suggest you don't waste your time.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Chegg (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Hiring Manager contacted me and set up an initial conversation.
    Looked interesting for the profile they were hiring so I went in for a full-day on site.
    In my view the onsite went fairly well - not outstanding, but certainly not terrible.

    The unfortunate (and unprofessional) part came later - I did not receive ANY communication one way or another. I took a day off work to go interview with these folks when they had initiated the contact and called me in.
    Afterwards, I tried contacting the recruiter, the hiring manager, etc - nothing.
    The least Chegg could have done was send me a two sentence mail saying that they would not be proceeding forward.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Chegg (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Chegg (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    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!
