    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Major League Baseball (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Typical questions over the phone. Interviewer was in production.. and was extremely condescending because I was a woman. I think he assumed that due to my gender I knew nothing about baseball. Overall it was a very dissapointing experience. I wouldn't recommend this place.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Major League Baseball (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    You will start with emails and phone call to their internal recruiter. From there it's one or more technical phone screens. The onsite process is to meet with someone from HR - it's not clear what this person is looking for other than that you are a "person" and can speak. After that it's one group after another - different developers with different backgrounds. Some very helpful and will answer questions about what they do, how they do it, talk about the company both pros and cons - others will have a major ego trip that you will have to deal with and will have an attitude with you immediately as they walk in the door. Overall they will make a decision quick and you'll be able to tell if you're in or not. They tell you at the beginning when you arrive how many interview sessions you will have and if you get to "the end" and you have not had the number of interview sessions you were told then you are out. I had one more session to go after spending four hours onsite and while waiting for this last session there was a very long wait where I was sitting in a small conference room doing nothing. Then someone comes in and says "okay we're done." They obviously huddle and make a decision during your sessions to cut-off the process if they feel you're not worth it. Unfortunately, like many interview cases, I think the one person who feels negative about you has more clout than anyone else so you have to impress every single person to be considered. Despite the negatives during this interview it seems like a great place to work. One of the few places that I have interviewed at where I did not get an offer but really wished I had.

    One interview, and I related well to everything they were trying to achieve. My work history and the direction I wanted to move was exactly on par with where they wanted the position to go. I explained some short term and long term goals of myself and potential coworkers as well as my personal longterm goals.
