I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Hulu.
Interview Details – I originally applied for the position by talking to a recruiter at a university career fair and giving him my resume. About a week after that, I was contacted by email by a recruiter requesting that I schedule a time to try their coding challenge as the next step in the application process. I could request to start the coding challenge at any time, and I was allowed up to eight hours to complete the challenge.
The coding challenge was interesting and fairly challenging. I spent several hours working on my solution, and I was pretty happy with the result. After I submitted my solution to the challenge, I was contacted about a week later by a recruiter saying that my solution impressed their engineers enough to move me to the next round of the application process.
The next and final step in their application process was a one hour technical phone interview with an engineer from the company. The questions in the interview primarily dealt with data structures, system design, and algorithm design. I was asked questions where I had to explain verbally how I would implement a solution, and I was asked questions where I had to write out code on a shared document for a solution. The questions asked were only moderately difficult, but I took a fair amount of time to answer each one and didn't explain my thought process out loud very well to my interviewer, so the interview didn't go that well for me.
After that interview, I got an email the next day letting me know that they were not going to give me an offer.
Interview Question – None of the questions were really that difficult or unexpected if you have good knowledge of data structures and decent coding ability. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Hulu.
Interview Details – Met at college career fair, scheduled an on campus interview the following day. Had two rounds of interviews. The first was a fairly easy identify what this algorithm does question. The second question proved to be more difficult. Unfortunately could not proceed into the next stage of interviews but did receive three months’ worth of Hulu Plus.
I applied through college or university - interviewed at Hulu in October 2011.
Interview Details – This was the most positive interview I have ever experienced, despite not getting hired. The interview process was about two hours long as I met with about six different people. In the interview room, they had "Welcome" written on the white board with my name on it. Everyone I spoke to was very positive and communicative. They were very informative about the outlook of the company and their workflow practices. They were very engaged and genuinely interested in seeing what I had to offer.
Interview Question – From what I can remember, the most challenging part was defending the possibility that I would not be able to afford completing my degree. It's not an issue now, as I have completed both degrees I set out to earn. Another challenge, I think, was winning over the last person I spoke to. He was making weird faces as he looked at my design document and wireframes. I guess I understand, as I have done way better work since then, and can see how he might have not been impressed at the time. Of course, I was still in school, which was why I was applying for an internship. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hulu in September 2013.
Interview Details – There was an initial interview which was HR round.
For the second round they have given two codes and discussed the outputs in the actual interview. Code complexities and how to improve the performance was discussed.
For the third, they gave me a situation, and asked what data structures would be best for such a case. Then spent time to improve the complexity.
Interview Question – A logger which contained job ids, job categories and time to complete in random fashion. The output desired was top three job categories. View Answer
I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hulu.
Interview Details – Given a technical phone interview asked questions about code sent 20 minutes prior. Got invited on site - long interview, many questions with 5 different engineers.
Interview Question – write a program that plays word search Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at Hulu in September 2013.
Interview Details – Few days after I applied online, I got an email that my resume seemed interesting.
Then I was supposed to have a phone interview with an engineer, but I was out of the country, so I was given the 8-hour programming challenge instead. The 8-hour challenge was extremely engaging. It was an open-ended problem where one can use lots of creativity, design skills, and some algorithmic knowledge. The 8-hour challenge made me want to work for Hulu very badly. I am now waiting to hear the response. Wish me luck!
Interview Question – 8-hour programming challenge. View Answer
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Hulu in August 2013.
Interview Details – I first applied online and within 30 min, was contacted by a recruiter to schedule a time to talk over the phone. This was the FIRST PHONE SCREEN. The call lasted 15 min. After I "passed" the phone screen, my information was passed over to the Day Porter Manager for a SECOND and final OFFICIAL PHONE SCREEN. This one lasted 30 minutes and went into more detail about the position than the first.
Finally, I was called in for an interview 2 days after for an IN PERSON INTERVIEW with three members of the "team" for about 2 hours total. The lady who i spoke to over the phone comes in to speak with me again about the position, which i believe makes this an UNOFFICIAL SCREENING. They each had an allotted period of time to talk with me. No question was out of the ordinary. Pretty much, why are you leaving your current job, why Hulu, what are your long term goals, etc.
At the end, I met up with the Recruiter again and she "guides" me to the elevators for me to leave. I ended up not getting the position because of a candidate who "simply had more experience", which is funny because I spent next to no time actually talking about the job experiences on my resume -_____-

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Hulu.
Interview Details – I uploaded my resume to Hulu through their Jobs section on their website.
About a week later, a recruiter contacted me that they wanted to schedule a conversation with me over the phone. It was essentially a screener, mainly asking about my background. After the screener, he explained that their process was to have two 1-hour long technical interviews over the phone and then an on-site interview.
My first technical interview went pretty well. Twenty minutes before the phone call, they sent me a .pdf file of code samples, which I they asked me a series of questions about: What does this program do? What would you name it? How is it's performance? How would you improve it? We then did a coding exercise and then a design question.
My second technical interview did not go as well. I was asked to write a function that would take a CSV file as input and then print out a hierarchy tree based on the values in the file. I was kind of nervous, so I think I spent too much time on that question and did not produce an optimal result. They emailed me the next day, saying they did not have a spot for me at this time.
Overall, the recruiters and interviewers were responsive and polite.
Interview Question – Given a list of employees and their bosses as a CSV file, write a function that will print out a hierarchy tree of the employees. View Answer
