    Marketing Technology Specialist Project Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Logos Bible Software.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for this position and let me tell you it was the most pulled out interview I've had.
    First I applied with a cover letter and a internal referral. I was then asked to come in for a group interview with the Marketing Technology Team (8 people or so). It was an open format interview in which I explained my experience and fielded any questions. The interview went well and I was asked to come in a separate time for the following timed tests.

    -market knowledge test
    -basic html test
    -wonderlic test

    That seemed to go well so I was then asked to take at typing speed test and to put together a technology detailed report comparing and contrasting a leading analytics platform. After that I was then asked to come in and interview with the promotions team. I didn't click with the promotions guy at all. After that interview I didn't hear anything from Logos. 9-12 hrs of time was spent to get to that point...I guess it made me a better interviewer.

    Interview Questions

    Content Innovation (Department) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Logos Bible Software.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was fairly standard, with only a few unique aspects. In particular, I was given a skill test to measure my abilities in certain tasks. This was unique, but not overly difficult. Overall the rest of the hiring process was good, though communication took a long time between emails and interviews. The whole interview process took about 8 weeks to complete (submission of application to accepting the position).

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked specific questions from the skills test that related to my specialization. If I was not an expert in the field I would not have been able to answer correctly. In the interview they had a current employee present who had the same specialization as myself. This individual also participated in the assessment.   Answer Question

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Logos Bible Software in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Actually applied for Desktop Support Analyst role, was pushed into this role "as a better fit" by recruiter. Interview process as expected: phone screen with Department Manager, then Skype call with 2 of the team leads. Third interview was "road test" style. I was exposed to the company's major systems and asked to create solutions from thin air. This would not have been a problem, but systems were heavily customized to the company's standard, and would take at least a day to get comfortable with. I was eventually told "thanks for coming, but we are no longer hiring" by the recruiter. So, I am out gas for 115 miles and 8 hours of a work day for no return.

    • Questions were not difficult, being asked to create solutions to issues with non-standard software was difficult.   Answer Question

    Marketing Communications Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Logos Bible Software.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume, cover letter and two writing samples as requested on the job posting on Craigslist and received a response within about a week of applying. I had one phone interview with a "team leader," which went well. We discussed my general experience and skills for about 30 minutes.

    A few days later, I was asked to complete a "Marketing Assessment" to gage my knowledge of their business and basic marketing principles. I also had to complete an online typing test. Within a week after submitting the assessment and typing test results I was scheduled for a panel interview the following week.

    The face-to-face interview was with the team leader, marketing director and a third man who had only been with Logos for a couple of months. The director did most of the interviewing and was pleasant. The interview only lasted for 25 minutes and was not structured. The director did most of the questioning and didn't write or refer to anything during my interview. He also mentioned they just hired a dozen new people on their team, which made me wonder why so many hires in such a short period of time?

    I followed up with the team leader two business days after my interview and was told they were still "weeding through" applicants and that the coordinator would be in touch about next steps. I emailed the coordinator two days later to follow up on the status of my application and within a couple of hours received a standard denial email.

    Interview Details

    Emailed Resume and cover-letter got a replied email within a week. Had a Skype interview for 30 minutes. It went well. The interviewer wanted to make sure the people who are interested must have a desire to move to Bellingham, Wa and who are willing to make 80-100 phone calls a day. After the initial interview, they send me a test via email. It consist of four tests. One on biblical knowledge, the second is two math problems (very difficult), and the last two test you on your email etiquette.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Logos Bible Software.

    Interview Details

    I first contacted Logos by e-mail. I also asked a friend who knew a Logos insider to e-mail a recommendation. After a long wait, Logos contacted me for a phone interview, which consisted mainly of technical questions to test my knowledge of programming languages, algorithms, and data structures. Apparently it went well, since they offered to fly me to Bellingham for an onsite interview.

    I read and watched everything on the Logos website about the company's culture and products, including the founder's ominously titled book "Fire Someone Today". Anyone interested in working here should do this!

    The on-site interview included a panel interview followed by lunch with several developers and a one-on-one with the CEO/founder. I get the feeling the one-on-one would have been canceled if the group interview didn't go well. For the panel interview I was asked to solve several technical problems on a whiteboard, and asked a wide range of questions about my experience and how I would solve various technical problems. There were no weird psychological questions. In the final interview I asked several questions about the company's culture, ownership structure, and future plans. I liked the answers.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Logos Bible Software in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent a resume, cover letter, and a few examples of websites that I have worked on to logos. They responded fairly quickly and we set up a skype interview. The interview was with two developers. They asked a few behavior questions: tell us about a time when you had a problem, or how you debug something, just general things. They weren't too difficult. Then they moved on to some more technical questions and asked me to describe solutions to a few problems they gave me and asked me to code one solution. This being the first interview, the technical questions were a little unexpected for me.

    • They asked me to describe how I would implement a solution that would find the top ten most occurring strings in a text file.   Answer Question

    Marketing Team Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellingham, WA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Logos Bible Software in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Prior to coming on-board I had known a management team member for some years prior (we knew each other virtually and had met face-to-face a couple times). As a result, I got fast-tracked into a meeting with the Pritchetts fairly quickly. It all started with an email, this led to a couple phone conversations with the director of marketing, this led to a face-to-face interview on-site,which led (that same day) to a team meeting with both Pritchetts in the meeting. After a few follow-up meetings by phone, I was offered a salary.

    I understand, from conversations with coworkers, this was unusually fast. In some ways, I wish the process had been more drawn-out so I could have come to some more accurate conclusions about management and corporate culture. It would have saved me a great deal of heartache.
