    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Maxpoint Interactive.

    Interview

    They are looking for buzzwords in the initial call. Say the word Python and Hadoop. They will like you. The person who makes the first call doesn't know much but just listens for these buzzwords. I'm sure I did very well but they never followed up, which is shocking considering how well everything went. I had no trouble with anything and they seemed genuinely interested, but just haven't heard anything. They really don't have their stuff together over there. Bad HR department.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Maxpoint Interactive (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    This company is not serious about what they want. If a recruiter 'forgets' phone appointments or there is always some crisis that pops up, you have to wonder how on earth they get any hiring done. This company has many open positions. I wonder if there is a reason...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Maxpoint Interactive.

    Interview

    The phone screen was not too bad. I was asked what sort of experience I have with projects and was asked to go into detail about those projects. From there I was asked general conceptual questions about different topics such as web development and Object-Oriented Programming. I now have an on-site interview with some of the staff engineers and managers.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was probably the ones about a few frameworks I worked on at a past internship because I had not looked over those frameworks in several months so I was very rusty on the details.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Maxpoint Interactive (Morrisville, NC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Submitting my resume online. Received a phone call from HR shortly after asking general questions about my resume. Describe yourself, what is your favorite project, etc, etc. What followed was an one hour long on-site technical interview at the Morrisville location about general Java knowledge, and some basic whiteboard coding. One week later I was asked to come in again, and this time the interview round consisted of four back-to-back interviews with engineering managers / developers from both Morrisville and in Austin (through Skype). These interviews weren't as technical but rather a bit more behavioral. Questions like what do you like doing most? Do you have experience with this technology? I think basically trying to find a team that would fit your personality, skill-set within the company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Maxpoint Interactive.

    Interview

    Interview process began with lunch with UX Manager, then two 3 hour long interviews with Product Managers, other designers, and developers. It was a fairly long process. They value fit with the culture which is why it takes so long.

    Reasons for Declining

    I'm just leery of explosive rapid growth companies. I'd rather see sustainable growth over time. Something about the company just didn't sit well with me, too much kool-aid.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Maxpoint Interactive.

    Interview

    Interview process overall was very positive until I had a chance to meet the President/CEO. Very rude and disrespectful person. Not the impression you want to see from a leader and before you get hired. This experience stopped any desire to continue pursue employment with MaxPoint.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Maxpoint Interactive (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call from HR. One of the worst interviews I have ever attended. Total waste of four hours. Interviewers have very high opinion of themselves and were playing with their cell phones during the interview. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone. If this was the experience potential employee I cant imagine how they would be treating their current employees.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    My initial contact was via phone interview. It was fairly routine. I was asked to interview in person about a week later. A few days ahead of time I was given a very open-ended case study to prepare. My interview began with me presenting my solution to about a dozen people. I felt very comfortable presenting and they asked reasonable and appropriately challenging questions that focused more on the general approach than on technical details. I spent a few more hours in one-on-one or small group interviews. Overall my experience was positive and the interview was very balanced in terms of me answering questions and me learning from them about the company. I felt the interviewers were engaged and giving me their full attention, unlike some experiences others have related.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted after a week. A phone interview followed by a onsite interview. The WORST interview experience I ever had. They have a very rude attitude . I know they make the rules, however that is still no excuse to be disrespectful and rude to interview candidates. Respect is a two way street and the rudeness gives you insight as to how that employer is possibly treating their employees and I certainly wouldn't want to work with such disrespectful and rude people.

    • Nothing in particular they were busy playing with their phones and sending texts to each other.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Maxpoint Interactive in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online, set up a phone interview a couple of days later. The phone interview was absurd; I'm sure the interviewer had made up her mind before I answered my phone. Very disinterested and condescending, I would imagine she was just trying to hit her quota. 2 months later the job is still open, so I would imagine that I wasn't the only person she did this to.
