    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Millennial Media (Baltimore, MD) in January 2012.

    Interview

    It was fairly easy. Initial phone screen with HR, second phone screen with the hiring manager, and an all day in person interview. Overall, the interview was fun but I really don't think it gauged my capability as a candidate. I talked with my boss^3 during the interview which was nice but she was a little strange and we just wandered around the office.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Millennial Media (San Francisco, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen with a HR person then a week later went in for an in-person interview with 3 people. Everyone was very nice and asked challenging but not too difficult questions. Unfortunately I was never contacted by HR to inform me that I didn't receive the job, which I thought was unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Millennial Media (Baltimore, MD) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was an employee referral and was supposed to meet someone from the top management. I waited at the reception for almost two hours but no one showed up. At first the receptionist told me that she didn't know the lady I was supposed to meet and therefore was having difficulty in locating her. After sometime she told me that the lady was in a meeting and that there was a message from her asking me to wait.

    After two hours, a lady from some other department came looking for me just as I was about to leave. This lady informed me that the lady from the top management was on leave and that I should meet her instead. I had travelled from far and didn't want to make multiple trips to Baltimore that's why I agreed to talk to her.

    All she kept telling me was what my job responsibilities will be and how happy the company was to have me on board. She asked me to check my email for the letter of appointment that would come from the HR. I waited but no one got back to me. I followed up with this lady I met, however, she never replied to me emails.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Millennial Media.

    Interview

    Millennial Media went to my school. The first round is on-campus. It lasts for 30 minutes, and the questions are pretty easy. Questions like hash tables, and simple algorithm. One week later, they told me I have an on-site opportunity. The On-site opportunity has 3 rounds, each about 45 minutes. The questions are not hard but very general. They will ask almost all relevant skills from your resume. Algorithm questions they asked are pretty easy. Just simple hash table, array, and binary tree questions.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Millennial Media (Baltimore, MD) in January 2014.

    Interview

    1 phone and 4-5 on-site rounds. Phone round was pretty basic. on-site rounds were not hard either. Pretty haphazardly maintained office under the guise of maintaining a start-up culture. Interviewers were all nice to talk. The area around is pretty shabby and junk too. Would not liked to have worked there for sure. Gave an impression that a developer spends lots of time in writing test cases (since they don't have a QE team).

    Application

    interviewed at Millennial Media (Boston, MA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I first had an on-campus interview, which was largely behavioral. The interviewer asked general questions about my past experiences and what I wanted to contribute to the company. I don't think I did too well, but I must not have completely blown my chances because I got called back to do an on-site interview. This round consisted of three 30-minutes sections: the first was with the senior recruiter, the second with an engineer, and the third with the vice president of engineering. The first two were quite similar to the on-campus interview, but the third was technical, and the questions were not very difficult -- a few about data structures / algorithms and one coding problem.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was too difficult. The coding question was just to find, within a list of integers, the longest sequence of consecutively increasing numbers.   1 Answer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Millennial Media.

    Interview

    The hiring and interviewing process is pretty informal and the employer takes time to get to know you. You will interview with a few different people in the department you are interviewing in and have a chance to talk about your experience and ask any questions you may have

    I negotiated a little and got my request.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Millennial Media (Baltimore, MD) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The first interview was an HR phone screen followed by a hiring manager phone screen. Both phone screens were relatively polite and informal. Typical background questions. There was also time for me to ask questions. Both interviews lasted for approximately an hour. I was scheduled for an onsite, but it was cancelled – it was bad timing with the hurricane and all.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren’t any major curve balls or unexpected questions. Typical questions related to advertising, in particular online and audience targeting. The toughest question was explaining my current compensation structure during the HR screen. This position was somewhat outside of my core area of expertise, which is why I did not receive a job offer.   Answer Question
