Senior Business Analyst Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Tough Mudder (Brooklyn, NY) in July 2013.
Application: Submitted resume, cover letter and answers to short answer questions through online application and also had a friend of a friend follow-up. Interview process: 1) Pre-recorded video questions, 2) HR video skype, 3) 2-on-1 video skype with people from different departments, 4) 1-on-1 video skype case about new market entry, 5) phone call with strategy manager with several tough mini case questions, 6) final round in Brooklyn office that I had to pay for travel myself from Chicago. Got a pretty basic rejection email that said to keep in touch but have not gotten any responses to the two emails I sent to follow-up, so obviously they didn't mean that. It was a very drawn out process with little to no feedback or information along the way, so it's not worth applying if you don't have the time/patience.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Tough Mudder in April 2013.
The hiring process is lengthy and they require you to meet with 3-4 different groups of people. The first portion of the interview is a "culture" fit while the later portions are a mix between culture and position specific questions
- There were some brain teasers and some case study questions that were a bit difficult, but nothing too crazy. The hardest questions to answer were questions around "would you fit in with our culture" as you have no idea what their culture is. I would suggest doing a fair amount of research on how they run their business and what it's like to work at tough mudder so that you can answer those questions a bit better. Answer Question
I didn't really negotiate. I got the offer I wanted.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Tough Mudder.
This was the first time I've seen this: recorded video interview (not a live interview). Essentially, it was 6 questions that were pre-recorded and asked via video. You record your answer via webcam and submit. It was very impersonal, some tech glitches, I'm very surprised they're using this. The questions were not all that difficult, but you only have 10 seconds to come up with a response. I'm honestly blown away that a company like this is making hiring decision based on recorded webcam responses. They'll probably end up hiring a bunch of actors.
