    Great Interview! All of the people were really nice and the questions were mostly behavioral. I like the culture but the company was too big for me. I thought their process was a bit dated: not a lot of analytical questions or practical walkthroughs

    IT Support Lead Interview

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by HR of Indeed to set interview. When received phone call from HR who was 5 min late. Who asked me why do I want to work there? I have just mentioned few bullet points from job description and that I respect role that Indeed provides to people. I mentioned that I would love to assist doing so. Then I got question how much do I expect to be compensated in response I have asked what is the budget for such role and got that it is confidential. After that I only got to ask a question that this is a basic role and what does it differentiate with IT Support role responsibility wise. (Because I am overqualified for both of them.) I got interrupted in a middle of sentence and in response I got that I am not a good fit for a culture but way stronger technically that they need and bunch of other stuff. It was put in ultimatum tone of voice and I almost got yelled that I may not be happy in such role and will be highly successful somewhere else without me be able to respond. HR person I spoke was most unpleasant and unprofessional person I spoke during interview over course of my career. Why to call overqualified person and than yell at them? All interview lasted less then 10 minutes. I am not a person who writes reviews period but this one stand out so much...
    Highly unpleasant experience.

    Interview Details

    Did two back-to-back 30-minute interviews on campus after talking at a career fair. Five minutes of behavioral questions, then a technical question. Basic data structures and algorithms, mostly. One was string manipulation, and the other was an unmemorable hashmap question. Did not get past this round, but I believe they to on-site interviews for interns after this step.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Indeed.

    Interview Details

    The hiring manager sounded really apathetic. Previously a recruiter talked about the position during a phone interview, but I still hoped that the second interview would go in depth about the position and the expectations. Instead, this manager mostly asked weird, distracting questions that seemed way off-topic. She asked me to describe my background, but she didn't seem very interested in what I had to say. I almost feel like she already decided that she wasn't interested in me before this phone interview, so I'm not sure why she wasted her time.

    Interview Questions
    • There were questions that had NOTHING to do with the job or even the field, but I was told that my thinking process was being evaluated. Seemed unusual for this type of job.   Answer Question

    Associate Country Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Indeed.

    Interview Details

    I applied and got contacted by an HR rep about 2 weeks later asking me to complete a writing exercise. We set up a time through email, and about 15 mins past our agreed time, they sent me a Word document containing the following questions (listed below). The instructions were to complete the questions and send them back within an hour, which I did.

    1. Answer in English:
    What are the 3 improvements Indeed could make to its site to better serve job seekers and why?

    2. Please translate the text below into XXX:
    How seriously do we take site simplicity at ZipRecruiter?
    So seriously, we have on multiple occasions REMOVED wholly built features because they weren’t receiving wide enough adoption by our customers.
    Therefore while it may seem like a no-brainer to add LinkedIn and Indeed Apply buttons to the site, we took nothing for granted.
    After a two-week A/B test last February, we reached statistical significance and concluded that adding the two apply buttons increased the overall volume of applications by 5%.
    That was against a run rate of 200k+ applications, so a 5% lift was an additional 10k applications per month.
    To put the magnitude of that win into perspective, were ZipRecruiter to try to buy enough traffic to generate 10k incremental applications it would cost us between $20k -$30k. This was a big win.

    3. Answer in English
    What is your favorite app and why?

    4. Answer in XXX:
    Write a brief follow up addressed to HR rep in XXX explaining what you will bring to the Indeed team.

    The next day I was contacted by the same HR rep asking to set up a phone interview. On the day of the interview they called me on time, and the interview lasted for about 25-30 mins. Nothing too complicated, questions were very specific to the role (whether I knew certain programs,etc)--no behavioral questions were asked. The rep seemed nice and polite; however, I couldn't help but notice his/hers demeaning manner of speaking. I had a very sour feeling after I hung up the phone. Even though they assured me that they would respond in 24 hrs, no response was received. This overall interview experience left quite an unfavorable impression about the company and I wouldn't be inclined to accept an offer or apply again.

    The salary they are offering for this position is in low 40s.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Indeed in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met them at a college career fair, and then was invited to interview with them on campus. In this initial interview, they asked a fairly difficult question regarding strings that took almost the entire interview time of one hour. After this interview, I was invited to take a coding challenge on hacker rank. This coding challenge was 75 minutes long and had two coding questions involving determining if parentheses are balanced with a stack, and another question regarding adjacency lists and minimum spanning trees.

    • The adjacency list and minimum spanning tree was fairly difficult. You're given a list of prisoners that are handcuffed together, and must use this to determine how the prisoners are grouped.   Answer Question
