    Consulting Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MongoDB in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    2 phone interviews followed by 3.5 hour long series of Skype and in person interviews (4 in all).

    The process was quite pleasant and the office had a very informal feel to it.

    And of course, you should be prepared to work 50-60 hours a week which includes travel time (flying out of town 50-60 % of the time).

    Overall, they have a a very good team and I think it would be an enjoyable place to work at.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at MongoDB.

    Interview Details

    Their recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn. He gave me great info about the job and explained how the consulting team fits into the company. He ended up scheduling a second round with the Director. They ended up passing on me but the recruiter was professional and even took the time to call and explain why they decided to pass when I emailed him...which I did not expect.

    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    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

    Interview Details

    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 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.

    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
