Product Associate Interview

Product Associate

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at FindTheBest.com in May 2014.

Interview Details – The whole interview process seemed as though they were trying to gauge personality traits. I applied online and was reached fairly quickly through email about different times and dates to schedule the interview. The actual Questions weren't tough by any means. I had 3 rounds over the phone,each by employee's in the product management area. I received an email a few days after the third round from an intern saying they were going to go in a different direction.

Interview Question – Nothing was really too tough. They asked what are three things you think the company does well, and three things they need to improve.   Answer Question

Product Associate Interview

Product Associate
Santa Barbara, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at FindTheBest.com.

Interview Details – 4-5 interviews which were a mix between behavioral, some technical and your past experiences. I recommend knowing your resume well.

Interview Question – All questions were typical: Why do you want to work here, What do we do.
By far the most challenging question was to find 3 things that FTB does well and 3 things that they need to work on. But they are very receptive to your critiques, as long as they are intelligent.
  Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Not enough financial incentive to make it worth living in CA. After doing some quick numbers, I would be working to just bring home $500 after taxes, rent, food and transport costs.

Data Engineer Interview

Data Engineer
Santa Barbara, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at FindTheBest.com.

Interview Details – It starts with a take-home project that you have to complete in a week. The project is pretty simple but they will appreciate if you add something of your own and still respect the deadline. If you pass that, you get a phone interview which is sort of technical. They focus on your projects and interest in the company.

After that, you'll have 4-5 on-site interview (including the CEO). This is a really cool experience since this is a mix of technical, behavioral and general aptitude questions. All interviewers are very nice and friendly. Office location is nice too.

Interview Question – Nothing terribly difficult. They want to see if you are actually passionate about what you do or not. This is slightly different than other companies which strictly stick with DS and Algorithmic questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations. Take it or leave it!
