Very Difficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Lynda.com in September 2013.
Interview Details – The interview was tough, but that's because they hire the best of the best. They don't rush into making decisions when it comes to hiring, which (if you think about it) is a very smart thing to do. You spend weeks/months getting a good deal for a house or a car, why not do it for your source of income and education?
Interview Question – I was asked to go on a white-board and write a recursive function to reverse a string. Easy enough if you have a computer, but to come up with that answer without the internet... it's hellish View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was going through Josh Stomel for this great company, and he kept me informed on the daily.
I applied through other source and interviewed at Lynda.com.
Interview Details – Phone Screen and an In-House loop
Interview Question – Can you tell me the difference between Big-endian and Little-endian? View Answer
I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Lynda.com in July 2013.
Interview Details – These people had me calling them back and forth for 4 months and finally had me travel to them for an in person interview. I felt insulted the whole interview and spoken down to. I took the job only to be laid off months later after moving my family.
Interview Question – They hardly focused on my background but instead socialized with me...very cult like environment. Personality test!!!! Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lynda.com.
Interview Details – Lots of random people interviewing me. I was confused and did not understand why management hardly interviewed me at all, mostly employees. Some lady asked me if I was married and if I could speak Spanish, which was not listed in the job requirements. And it's against the law to ask someone of they are married.
Interview Question – Well, probably the one about if I was married or not and if I spoke Spanish. I thought it was a joke but she was serious as a heart attack. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They sent an e-mail, I did not like the package they offered so I requested a better deal, they were insulting but finally offered me what I was requesting. You can get 3 weeks off if you demand it.
Interviewed at Lynda.com
Interview Details – The interviewing process at lynda.com was extremely unprofessional and inefficient. The process extended over 2 months. I participated in 5 separate interviews, all of which were remote. They were scheduled as Skype interviews, but more times than not, the lynda folks could not seem to operate Skype. There was an obvious lack of coordination and communication amongst the lynda employees. I was asked the same questions over and over and two of the interviewers spent most of the time talking about themselves. One even spent time reading the company's catering menu. Perhaps she saw this as the company's strongest selling point.
Interview Question – The questions were very straight forward. "Tell me about your experience with X" or "Describe a professional failure and talk about what you'd do differently." Nothing too difficult or unexpected. Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Lynda.com in January 2012.
Interview Details – I was recommended for the job by a current employee whom I used to work with. I was asked to apply using Jobvite. I was then contacted by a lynda.com representative in order to arrange a phone interview. On the designated day/time I waited for 30 minutes; no phone call. I checked my email later and saw an email arrived one minute before the interview was supposed to take place. The person said she had her daughter with her and would like to re-schedule. I followed up with a nice email saying I hope that all was OK with the daughter and would be happy to re-schedule. The following day I received an email that was addressed to somebody else, requesting a phone interview in less than two hours. I responded immediately to the email asking if this was meant for me or for some other candidate. I never heard back but, 15 minutes after the time she had proposed in this last email my phone rang. I was on my way to a meeting but arranged to talk the next day. At the end of the interview she said she would be giving my resume to the VP and director. I followed up with an email. Then, waited a week and sent another email inquiring what the time frame would be for the next step. Never got a response. Sent one more email and again not even a response. These are just the highlights. A total disaster, waste of time, and completely disrespectful especially when it was an internal recommendation, they came after me initially, you would hope they would learn to treat people with just a little bit of respect for people's time.
Interview Question – Nothing technical, other than questions about my technical experience. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lynda.com in January 2012.
Interview Details – Applied online on JobVite. I was contacted within 2 weeks and had an initial phone interview with in-house recruiter. I was then scheduled to have another telephone interview with the hiring manager a week later scheduled for 9am. A week later, as scheduled,I received a phone call promptly at 9am, however, it was the recruiter calling to reschedule as the hiring manager wasn't available. I was rescheduled for the following Monday, same time. I received a call, again, promptly at the scheduled time. I interviewed for an hour with the hiring manager where I was sold on the company, it's accelerated growth, the perks of working there, the responsibilities of the job and asked at every step if that was acceptable to me and what I could expect in the next phase of the hiring process until, the hiring manager said truthfully, they had already filled the position the preceding week and that they felt badly about having to reschedule the interview and so interviewed me anyway. Huh? Very confusing!
