    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at MongoDB.

    Interview Details

    Was referred by a friend, but took over a month to be contacted by an internal recruiter. Internal recruiter did not have a great bedside manner, and was difficult to work with. I gave him my availability for an onsite and then he never responded to me - I just got an email to confirm my interview from a coordinator 12 hrs beforehand. Experience with recruiter really turned me off to them. Also, the job description changed 3 times throughout my process with them - they had no idea what they wanted!

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked very straight forward questions about how I would go about solving a specific problem (eg: how would I approach audience segmentation and communications for email marketing).   Answer Question

    Behavioral and technical phone screen. Followed by 3 back to back onsite interviews. First onsite is more behavioral, second and third are technical. The interviewers are very friendly and the questions are not too difficult, but stay calm and talk through your thought process.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MongoDB in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by MongoDB recruiter after submitting resume through their website. I was set up with an initial call (HR Screen) and then phone interview with two engineers about a week after that. The phone interview had a coding component on a collaborative editing website. I was notified of rejection by a very nice voicemail message from the recruiter. Will apply again next year.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at MongoDB.

    Interview Details

    Phone screening:

    interviewer asks questions about resume. She seemed to only say yes to any of my descriptions, neither agreeing nor discussing why. I asked for feedback on my interview to no avail. Hopefully, they can start doing a better job on interviewing. I heard they ask brain teasers which can be quite a turnoff for many interviewees

    Interview Questions
    • She didn't ask any technical questions. Only behavioral questions. Seems they want someone familiar with their product and who can hit the ground running.   Answer Question

    Software Engineering Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MongoDB in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was nice and quick. I applied at the career fair after getting an invite from the recruiter. I was then approached for a 30-45 min phone chat with someone from HR. After getting through that which involved a basic CS question, I got a call from an Engineer. This interview wasn't technical either and focussed more on my work and interests. These two interviews took about 2 weeks. Then I was contacted the same week for another on the phone interview in 1 week time. This interview would be technical and I would be writing code on an online collaborative editor. This interview went well and after clearing this stage I was invited to MongoDB's New York office for a final round. The final round was very relaxed and chill. We enjoyed lunch with new graduates and other employees and then I had 3 1 hour interviews back to back. The day ended with a 10-15 chat with the recruiter. I received an email asking what was a good time to talk on the phone the following week and was later told that I had been offered the position.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview questions relied on Algorithms, Data Structures and objective thinking more than anything else. Interviewers were very accommodating and took you through the process in a supportive and helpful manner. They expected you to know basics about the way code runs on a machine and errors that can arise based on the approach you take.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I received a more compelling offer from another firm.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at MongoDB in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got contacted initially by the college recruiter. We set up a time for a quick 30-min behavioral screen and what followed was a phone coding interview. If that had gone well, there would have been an onsite.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of questions about database choices. Know what NoSQL is, what MongoDB is. Got eliminated after a really easy phone interview question - this is one of my first interviews and I did not know what I was doing.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Met at a career fair. One week later had an initial phone screen with HR and then one week later a technical phone interview with an engineer. The initial phone screen consisted of standard behavioral questions (What are you interested in, why do you want this job, etc.). The technical interview was also just standard resume questions followed by some algorithmic questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at MongoDB in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter so I set up a phone interview. She asked me a lot of questions about MongoDB's software and whether I had ever used it before. She also asked me about SQL. She asked me what kind of projects I am interested in working on. I wasn't really interested in MongoDB so the interview process ended.
