    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Peanut Labs.

    Interview

    After initial contact with the recruiter through email, scheduling a phone interview with the hiring manager was a mess. After giving my available times to speak with the hiring manager, silence followed for the next few days. Next time I hear back from the recruiter, the proposed phone interview time was within 2 hours. This process repeated itself for over a week.

    The Hiring Manager was late to call during the Phone Interview. We went over my background, and what I did at each company listed on my resume. The call itself dropped several times, possibly due to Hiring Manager calling from his personal mobile number, and stepping into the elevator multiple times.

    All in all, not impressed with their interviewing etiquette.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Peanut Labs (San Francisco, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Completed a challenge on CodeEval, and the next day got an email asking me to come for an in-person interview.

    When I got there, the hiring manager asked me a few usual interview questions, and then gave me a piece of paper with a programming question on it and left the room. The first question was to build a JSON parser and do some fancy output. That took about 3 hours, and I didn't quite finish. I then spoke briefly with another co-worker about my answer to the problem, and was given a sandwich. Then they gave me more paper, with yet another problem on it to build a survey creation tool using HTML/Javascript. I told them I didn't know javascript, so they gave me an internet connection and left the room. After about 4 hours, I had the basics down, but again did not finish.

    They asked me to then finish up both problems at home, and if I did so, I would be invited for another interview.

    The entire process took 7 hours, plus the time to do the initial CodeEval problems, and the several hours to complete the problems at home. I didn't get much time to ask questions about the position.

    I was invited for a second interview, however, given the fact that I was a student, and they wanted yet another 7 hour interview with me, I just didn't have the time to commit to the process so I declined.

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Peanut Labs (Sandy, UT) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I had an interview at the company couple of days ago. I was asked to solve and code for a problem involving encryption and hashing. There was no time limitation and it took me an hour to come up with a code.
    but he said I got a wrong answer so I could not pass for the next round. The guy gave me a problem was pretty cold and never gave me any hint. it was a pretty bad experience

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Peanut Labs (San Francisco, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I get one phone interviews. In the phone interview, they asked me a lot questions about PHP and JAVA
    Because I have a lot of experience about Java programming. They ask me something about projects I developed before. They also asked something about general idea of programming such as what program is considered to be good program.

    Interview

    Interview process was fine. Interviewers seemed all over the place and unprepared. One of the interviews, the second one out of three, I met with several other employees who were supposed to talk to me and gauge how well I would fit in the company. All kind of awkward to be honest.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Very little room for negotiation.
