    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Monster Worldwide in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied summer intern position online in Feb 2014, got interview request email after about three weeks, then a phone interview and a onsite interview during the next week. Generally speaking, experience is great, people there are friendly and nice. There are not any hard interview questions (technical) in the interview. Got offer from HR in the next day. Although they didn't ask any hard technical questions, you 'd better still get preparation. For Software Engineering, being familiar with advanced/ data structure, algorithm(all kinds of sorting), OOD and coding techniques are fundamental. Don't be nervous if you dont know answer of questions, that's how interview should be. Just express yourself- let them know how you solve hard problems. Always be desired to learn

    Software Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Weston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Monster Worldwide (Weston, MA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I am a first year PhD student in Mathematics. I was looking for an internship related to data analysis and/or mathematical modeling. I handed in my CV at a school career fair. The representative told me that he would refer me to the data science team. A few days later, I received an email asking me to schedule a time for phone interview. The interview was about 20-30 min. Mostly, the questions were related to my past experience. I feel like they were just trying to get an idea of what my experience level was. The phone interview also contains some standard questions such as "why do you think you are a good candidate for the internship" and "what was the most difficult part of your experience at xxxx and how did you overcome it." After the phone interview, they moved me to the final round, which is on-site interview. At the end of March, I went to Monster's office in Weston, MA for the on-site interview. First, we were given a short tour of their new building followed by information sessions given by the HR and people from the engineering department. During the session, they asked us why did we want to apply for the internship. I don't think it was considered a formal question as part of the interview process. But people who were going to interview us were also in the room listening to our answers. Then we moved on to in-person interview. I was interviewed by two people from the engineering team, one of them was the person who phone interviewed me. It was not a technical interview. Nothing very technical was asked. They were trying to figure out what I want to get out of the internship and tried to match me to a suitable position. They also asked about my past experience in more details. The most difficult question was: give an example of a correlation you can draw between two categories of data that Monster collect. They gave me an example: suppose Jack was applying to Job A. Mary, who applied to Job A also applied to Job B. So it is likely that Jack would also want to apply to Job B.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Monster Worldwide (Boston, MA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    1. Met the Recruiter at my school career fair. 2. Got an email from the recruiter to setup an initial phone screening with the hiring manager. Very professional in setting up date and time. 3. The phone screening went really well. 4. Heard back from the recruiter that I was selected for the final round of in-person interviews, asking for availability. They have a really detailed process. 5. I sent my availability but did not hear back for a few days. On following up again, I understood that they had held off the in-person interviewing. Very weird!

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Monster Worldwide.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted a week later by a recruiter to come in for an interview. First interview was with 2 managers who asked normal STAR type questions, "Give an example of a situation when...." "How would you handle an irate customer"... interview was about 20 minutes long. Got a call back about 2 days later by the same recruiter to come in for a second interview. This was with 2 other managers, one being the department manager for which I applied. Same type of questions along with questions about skills I have used in past jobs and my degree. Weaknesses and Strengths... Questions come from a booklet of questions made up by corporate. A couple days later, the recruiter called with an offer and information on when to start and information on the position. Overall, not a difficult interview.

    • Scenerio questions will put you on the spot but using the STAR technique will help you sound more appealing while telling your story.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation... they flat out told you what the starting pay was, which was nothing great, but it was something.
