    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Purch.

    Interview Details

    I applied after being referred to by an acquaintance. After emailing back and forth with the hiring team in Utah I met the team located in New York, since that was the office I applied with. The interview itself went very smoothly, I clicked with everyone in the room. I sent everyone emails that afternoon and felt I got a very positive response from the hiring team.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They asked me how much I was making at my previous employer, I responded, and asked how much they were offering in a round about fashion, they answered. There seemed to be little flexibility with the salary, since it was better than what I was receiving, I accepted.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Purch in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was a pretty easy process. I knew someone who worked there and she gave my resume to HR. I had two phone calls with my eventual supervisor, and then one f2f meeting with him and the head of HR. I was hired within a week after that.

    Negotiation Details
    I told them what I had been making at my last job, and he told me immediately that he could not match that. So I took a $10K hit because I liked the job.

    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ogden, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ogden, UT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Purch in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview is with the HR Director and the IT Director. This is a personality interview - very few technical questions at all. Low pressure - the interview is in the HR Directors office.

    If they like you, they will pass you on to the Development Director. This is the technical interview - you will be asked to use a whiteboard to show how to do some basic tasks (e.g, design a data model to do A, then modify it to do B). You will be asked about OOP techniques and Agile methods. Don't worry too much - you'll never get the chance to use them correctly once you accept the position.

    If you pass the Development Directors interview, you'll be asked to complete an online PHP and Javascript test. These are common - if you've done any serious interviewing recently, you'll probably recognize the questions.

    Negotiation Details
    They seem to pay people on a standard scale. If you're related to the CEO (too many people in Techmedia are...), you get a good salary. If not, you get an average salary.
    If you're considering an offer, do it from the basis of 'Do I need a job'. If you're looking for a career, with advancement and responsibility, look elsewhere.
