    Interview

    It was a standard Hiring and Interview Process for a web developer in a contract position. I respond to ad, then submitted a resume, then went in for a technical interview, followed by a business interview. Also got a tour of the office, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Overdrive Interactive.

    Interview

    The interview with Overdrive was somewhat quick and painless. I met with 4 different employees and was offered the job on the spot. This should have thrown a red flag up immediately. Overdrive will hire anyone and "Throw them against the wall to see if they stick". Be very wary that this is a place you want to work!

    Interview Questions

    • They actually asked one of those ridiculous critical thinking questions "How many gold balls could fit in a bus?"   Answer Question

    Interview

    they grill you on technical details and also ask tough questions. the other interviews i did were just as tough. Not an easy process at all. There were a lot of times that they rescheduled I had to have 5 interviews in order to get the offer, which I ended up refusing

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Overdrive Interactive (Allston, MA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I was first asked to answer some rather generic questions via email about search marketing, along with two out of a possible 25 more detailed questions. Second round consisted of creating a hypothetical search campaign for a client of my choice.
