    JSFiddle session over the phone as well as some general questions about javascript. I was asked to create a simple html layout and to make a function to alter it. Pretty easy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Playboy.

    Interview

    Interview process included phone interview, sample content assessment, and in person interview. The entire process took about 1 month. Everyone was very kind and accommodating leading up to and during the interview process, and the office seemed to have a very family like culture. Biggest complaint is that I never received a response, even after multiple attempts to contact from my end.
