    Digital Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dealer.com.

    Interview Details

    Contacted me a few days after I submitted my online application. Total process consisted of a first round of interviews and then a more selective second round. During the first round, I was interviewed by 3 gentlemen from their digital advising team. During the second round, I interviewed more with the Director of Talent Development over conference call with the Vermont office. The HR staff and digital advising manager sat in with me and observed.

    I thought the overall process was pretty pain-free. It was really nice to not have to dress up in a suit and tie.

    Copywriter Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dealer.com in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received an email outlining the salary range to check that it was within my range. After that, I had one phone interview with an HR rep, which consisted just of basic get-to-know-you type of items. Very informal and easygoing.

    Immediately set up a second interview with the VP of the division that was hiring for later that week. Interview was cancelled the day of, due to an unforeseen meeting and never rescheduled. Received a cold call from the VP a week later, as some lines of communication got crossed, he offered to reschedule, but we performed the interview anyways. Pretty straightforward interview about my management style and ethics. Really informal and pleasant.

    Waited a few days and got an email that they were interested in flying me into town for an in-person series of interviews. Flew in the following week and interviewed again with the VP (even more pleasant and enjoyable than on the phone), and interviewed with two additional team managers, as well as the HR lead that initially contacted me.

    They were very hospitable, as they put me up in a great hotel, gave me a grand tour and fed me a delicious and healthy lunch. I left very impressed. Flew home on Tuesday, had an offer by Thursday and a generous counter-offer was accepted on Friday.

    With exception of that one miscommunication and some confusion on the travel arrangements, the entire process was great. This is a super-busy company, so things move a mile a minute, so some mistakes are expected.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dealer.com in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through LinkedIn process and the HR thought I was a good fit for the position. The first screening process is to solve 2 java programs offline. The code has to be written, well documented and share the unit test cases in the form of JUnit cases. The questions were easy. First one was a palindrome question on strings. Second was to count the number of keys in a given file and the count of each of the keys.
    I cleared the first round without much difficulty. The second round was set up with a lead developer and senior developer over Google Hangout. They asked me about my technical experiences and projects. I went about this in details. As for hands on programming, there was only one simple question. A data structure will be given which we have to make use to print the web site links. I immediately guessed it was an n-ary tree traversal with recursion, and wrote the whole program.
    Datastructure is something like this.
    class Node {
    ArrayList<Node> children;
    String info;
    } You will be given the head to start the traversal and not print the head's info.
    The interviewers told me that I had to print the level at which leaves are. I modified my program to print the parent and children and the level at which I am printing the leaves. The interviewers agreed the solutions suits the requirement.
    The interviews were not giving any feedback while I was talking. I was doing all the talking It was not like a conversation at all!
    I promptly heard from the HR 2 days later. To my surprise he said I did not clear the technical interview. Well, I still do not have a clue I did not get selected. For others who are interviewing for this position, this will help.
    Always the same questions are asked! So, be prepared for the above programs(both rounds)The salary is not top notch.

    Java Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Dealer.com in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through LinkedIn, was contacted by the recruiter after 2-3 days to schedule an initial phone screen. The non-technical phone screen was just "getting to know you" call, where I was asked about my interests and past experiences. The same day, I was given a take-home assignment to solve, where the questions were: 1) Given (key, count) file, sum up all counts for every key 2) Detect if a given string is a palindrome. I was given a week to solve these, and after I submitted, I was asked to write Junit test cases for the same.
    A week later, I was scheduled for a video interview (on Hangout).
    One Sr. Developer and an Architect conducted the interview. Right off the bat, they asked me to give them my 'Elevator Pitch'. Then, they asked about my background, work exp. and projects. Next was the coding question, where given an n-ary tree, was asked to output the contents in a format which is easy to read (Hint: Directory structure in Windows). I started working through the solution, with some hints and discussion. After I wrote the code, was asked to enhance the appearance of the output with tabs/spaces. Although, halfway through that they asked me to wrap it up. Then, I was given a chance to ask them a few questions.
    A day later I was informed that I had performed below par on the coding question, and hence they are not continuing with the process.
    Overall, the experience was very good, especially the recruiter was very helpful (he spoke to me a couple days before the interview and gave me a crash course on do's and don't s, which was nice).
