I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IXL Learning.
Interview Details – I met them at a career fair and gave a copy of my resume. I was contacted a week later for a phone interview. The phone interview was a fairly straight forward technical phone screen. I felt like I answered the questions well, but got an email the next week that they would not be moving forward in the interview process.
Interview Question – Nothing was very challenging. Questions just required basic knowledge of algorithms and data structures. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IXL Learning in December 2013.
Interview Details – I sent in my resume through my college's career center and was contacted for an interview through the college career website within a week. It was a fairly quick and easy process. After the one on one interview, I was sent a 3-question assignment about how I would design questions and explanations.
Interview Question – They asked me to answer a brainteaser about jellybeans. Answer Question
I applied online and interviewed at IXL Learning.
Interview Details –
I applied online after seeing their name at my college career fair. I applied in September and didn't get invited for a phone interview until November.
The interview was quite generic, and like a lot of other people said, it seemed like my interviewer was reading off a script, which made it harder to have a conversation. I think it's a bit hit or miss depending on your interviewer.
The first part was just him asking about stuff from my resume, and giving me a chance to ask some questions too. Then we moved to the brain teaser, which wasn't too difficult. They just want to see if you can explain your reasoning.
The interview's pretty short. It's scheduled to be 30 minutes, and we finished early.
Interview Question – The brain teaser probably requires the most thinking, since the rest is just talking about your past experiences, but it's not difficult and shouldn't be unexpected. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at IXL Learning.
Interview Details – I was introduced to IXL at a career fair. I had a good talk with the representative there, and waited about 3 weeks until I was contacted for a phone interview. When I did have my phone interview, the woman was nice, and I thought I provided good answers to her questions. Until the brainteaser came up, and although it was easy, I couldn't quite get it on the spot. I got an email a few days later telling me that my skills were not what they are looking for.
Interview Question – Asked about how you have handled challenging situations in the past. A brainteaser about three jars of jellybeans. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at IXL Learning in November 2013.
Interview Details – After submitting my application, I got a phone interview, which was pretty routine. I described my experiences, how I handled challenges, asked questions about the company and the position. I only felt put on the spot when I was asked what I would improve about the site, since I hadn't spent too much time looking around. That was followed by a job test, which had a pretty long written component. I came in for an in-person interview after that, which consisted in several rounds of answering questions (including brain teasers) and meeting people. After about five or six people (it was a long process), I was sent home. I got a phone call a few days later with an offer.
Interview Question – What would you improve about our product. There were also a few brainteasers, but those aren't that important. Just be quick on your feet and be able to think and talk clearly. Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IXL Learning.
Interview Details – Applied during a career fair. Had one phone interview and they asked me to submit java code for two questions. Got another interview after that. The interviewer seems running out of questions during the interview because I solved all 3 questions. Then they sent me an email saying that they would like to pursue other candidates.
Interview Question – Some programming questions more like brain teasers. View Answer

Interview Details – Applied through the Career fair at my college. After submitting my resume at career fair, I got an email for an on campus interview, so I went to the interview. The guy asked me a few non technical questions like why IXL, and then jumped right into the technical questions. The questions arent too bad, general algorithm and data structure questions. After that, you get a skills test online, which contains a couple more technical questions. Sent it back, and a week later, got an email saying that they will not be moving on with the interview.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IXL Learning in October 2013.
Interview Details –
I came across IXL Learning at a job fair at Princeton University. From this interaction, I was scheduled for a phone interview the following week. My experience from start to finish with these folks was efficient, professional and friendly. The phone interview lasted about 45 minutes (although a fair amount of that was chatting about the position, some company history, etc.) and this led to the next step. My one piece of advice at this point is to get clear on why you want the job. Obvious, I know, but something that's probably not thought about as deeply as one should.
Next, I was asked to complete a couple of tasks that, to my mind, served two very worthwhile purposes. First, and naturally, they want to see how well you perform. The tasks were examples of the type of work I would be performing. This involved writing the wrong answer solution to two different science questions for 3rd grade and middle school. The second purpose that proved very valuable for me was a chance to ask myself, "Is that was I want to do every day when I come into work?" So, if you get this this stage, I suggest you ask yourself honestly that question. For me, the answer was very much a 'yes'.
The on site interview was quickly accelerated for me because I happened to be in town for that week. I don't know how long the process would have taken if I hadn't been 20 miles away, rather than 3,000. For the on-site interview I met with 2 other product analysts, both of which left me with a very good impression of the company, the working environment, etc. Each had their own approach to interviewing, and each asked me to essentially do what I would be asked to do on the job. They also asked about my previous science research, and if I would pick something from science and explain it to a 7th grader. I then met with the person I had a phone interview with, and who would be my direct supervisor, and then, very briefly, with the VP of the company.
The types of questions varied. There are several standard interview questions, and a number of brain teasers, none of which I had seen on line before. Not going to give those to you- that would take all of the fun out of it! The point is to show your reasoning skill, so just go slow and reason things out. I took a dozen bad turns on those, so just relax and have fun with them.
I got a tour of their new office space, which was very slick and pleasant. I had read a bunch of reviews about the sterile, quiet and dull working environment. Not sure where those folks were coming from, or what they are looking for in a job environment. I just saw a bunch of people working. I suspect that with the stories of the work environment at a place like Google people sometimes expect to be playing basketball while working. It seemed fine to me.
Interview Question – I was asked to tell about a time when I had a conflict with a coworker. I had thought about that question, but the only example I have is a fairly one-sided exchange, with my co-worker simply being wrong about the way he handled the situation. I suggest picking one where there was some give-and-take in the resolution as the point of the question is to probe your ability to deal with conflict at work. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IXL Learning.
Interview Details – I applied through their online website. Had a phone interview which consisted of mostly behavioral questions. After that, I was asked to do a written response by playing around with their website and give feedback on what can be improved. They also asked me to design a feature and how to implement it on the website.
