    Interview

    The phone interview was quick. However, the design exercise requested wireframes, a design specification guide, and a detailed, visual mockup of the homepage and mobile version of one of their sites. Big red flags.

    Interview

    The interview process took more than 4 hours and I met with multiple recruiters and the VP. Their compensation is extremely low. They kept emphasizing how the dress code was casual so I am supposed to take a pay cut just because I get to wear jeans to work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Internet Brands (El Segundo, CA).

    Interview

    Met with a pair of payroll clerks (might've been clerk 2), a payroll manager, and a hr manager in a total of three rounds interview.

    It was pleasant for the most part, the asked me questions about my resume, strength/weakness, normal questions.

    The HR manager dug and pressed for answers to personal questions that had to do with my unemployment that I wasn't comfortable giving. It turned me off.

    Manager of Software Development Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Internet Brands (El Segundo, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by one of Internet Brands' recruiters. I had three interviews with them. The first interview was an HR screen over the phone. The second interview was a technical screen performed over the phone with one of Internet Brands' developers. I passed the technical screen and had an in person interview scheduled.

    When I went to the in person interview, they had me meet with 2 of the developers from the team I would be managing. The conversions went fine I thought, but somehow it was decided that I shouldn't interview for the Manager of Software Development position I was supposed to be interviewing for. This was done even though I never even spoke to the hiring manager. I had only up to that point spoke with 2 developers and an HR person while at the Internet Brands office.

    They then decided I should interview for a different position, which I clearly wasn't prepared for, since I was interviewing for a management position. The portion of the interview went poorly, plus I was tired by that time since I had been there for 4 hours already.

    Obviously I never heard back from them.

    Interview Questions

    • I had to submit a code sample using google docs during the phone tech screen. I believe I had to write a for loop that would update a value in the middle of a function call.   1 Answer

After completing and sending the case study back, they took half a week to reply back. They were prompt and courteous when replying to emails.
