    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bristol, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, CT
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ESPN in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    A few phone interviews then fly into Bristol for a day of interviews. Similar questions to other sofware compaines. Not as difficult as amazon/google/other silicon valley big boys, but tougher than software consulting firms. Some sports questions as well to gauge interest in sports. Dont fake your way through the sports questions, much better to admit if you dont care about sports, its not a big deal people just dont want to work with a fabricator. I didnt do any negotiating with the offer
