    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at MobiTV in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    After finding the company in late September, the Corporate Recruiter emailed and called me about three days after to schedule an interview. I interviewed with the marketing specialist, the corporate recruiter on the first day, and then the Marketing Director a week later. It was fluid and fast: I applied and was hired in less than a month.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MobiTV in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    MobiTV requires a pretty rigorous interview process consisting of phone and in person interviews. As with any interview, it's important to do adequate prep work like reviewing the company website and any press. The office has a gorgeous lobby overlooking the Bay with actual office space made up of mainly cubicles and pretty quiet.

    Mobile Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Emeryville, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at MobiTV in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    My initial contact with the company was through a recruiter that found my resume online. An email was sent asking for day to have a phone interview. Before the interview, I brushed up on my programming languages (Java) and algorithms. The phone interview was technical. I was asked questions about the skills/programming languages on my resume and a few problem solving and algorithm questions. After 1 day, I received a call to schedule for an on site interview. The on site interview was a 1:1 interview with 6 different employees. Each interviewer had a problem solving question or an basic coding algorithm they wanted me to write. The questions were okay if you reviewed your programming languages and algorithms. Also, on the same day I did not get to eat lunch so they bought me a sandwich. This was nice of them. Overall the interview process was fast. I received a reply within a day after my on site interview.

    IT Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Emeryville, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Emeryville, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at MobiTV in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone screening was pleasant. The first person I interviewed was the Head of QA who I would work for in a heartbeat. He was clearly brilliant and very pleasant to chat with. The next person was with a VP (?), who talked more about industry including managerial politics and leadership I had at a prior company. He was also very pleasant nonetheless. Next person was a Senior Engineer who seemed to hold a grudge about my prior employer since he apparently interviewed but was not selected. I don't recall interviewing him so he probably spoke with my boss who had his own unique criteria for screening. I misspoke terabytes vs. pedabytes while discussing storage with him but I was nervous at that point with that particular interviewer. The third person was with another Senior SA who was very charming, technically savvy, and asked some excellent problem solving questions. The fourth person was someone who rose up from the "Op's" trenches and was very nice and asked a lot of textbook questions but not in an intimidating way. It was clear that I needed to refresh some web engineering skill sets I hadn't used for years. There was a postit note on the door when he and I walked out which made me assume we were done and I didn't make the "cut." All in all, it was a long exhausting process, but I needed the experience because I hadn't interviewed until very recently. The process has definitely changed since the "Manic Recession."
