- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Trulia (San Francisco, CA) in July 2015.
Connected with the recruiter on LinkedIn. Two phone screens, followed by the onsite. It seems like they were searching for a specific person, like Senior Software Engineer in Search with specific set of skills. I clearly mentioned that I am not a senior engineer, but their questions were more focused on the experience with Solr.

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Trulia (Centennial, CO) in July 2015.
It was very quick. First a phone interview and than an in-person interview—all over about 4 days. The job description for the position was incredibly vague and full of buzz words, which made me nervous, but I took the interview out of curiosity. The process itself was alight. They put me in a room and one guy came in and asked a few questions. He left and then another guy came in and asked nearly the exact same questions again. They seemed very hurried, and I found out in the interview that they were doing a massive hire for this position (like 30 people). I felt a little duped because the job was essentially a call-center job. They never use those words, but they knew and I knew that was what the position essentially was.

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Trulia in June 2015.
Applied Online through glassdoor . Got a call from a recruiter who asked about my background and common HR stuff. Setup a phone interview the very next day. I had a technical phone screen with 2 Sr Developers. They asked me basic questions about my experiences and some problems I had solved at work . Then I had a coding question that given a file with lists query find the top 10 slowest queries . I could code this easily using heaps. The only problem was I was coding in nodejs at work hence my java was a bit scrappy where I continuously declared ints by vars. Got a reject from the recruiter the next day saying that the team wanted someone with good current Java capabilities.

Met with several lead engineers and reviewed various architectural scenarios.

Helpful (4)No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Trulia.
Recruiter contacted me through LinkedIn and had an initial chat. Then a tech telephonic interview was scheduled. It had a mix of Java coding, SQL, mapreduce, questions on collections and concurrency. It went fine. I was invited for an in-person interview. There were 5 rounds of interview, including high level design and architecture, questions on Cassandra, HBase, then followed by low level concurrency questions, was asked to code a map reduce program and then finally a simple programming puzzle. Though I thought I did fine, I had couple of issues. I was told I was not fluent in whiteboard coding ( I know it was that puzzle) and as well did not show lot of enthusiasm. The best part of the interview process is the team was very friendly. Though I did not get the offer, I was never made to feel bad. The team was very respectful and encouraged me throughout the process.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Trulia (San Francisco, CA) in February 2015.
Applied through recruiter, followed by a phone screen. Phone screen went well and recruiter said she'd move forward with the hiring manager. Similar to other reviews I've read, I sent two emails for follow-up and with no response. It would be professional if the recruiter could simply reply or give a response. Not sure who's running the recruiting team, but they need to get their act together.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Trulia (Davis, CA) in February 2015.
They emailed me about 2 weeks after I met them at a job fair for a phone interview. The interview had basic screening questions and took about 20 minutes. Afterwards if you pass, they send you to an on-site interview for a hackathon like interview. My friend who was accepted was contacted the day after. My interview was a Wednesday and was rejected the next Tuesday.

Phone screen with college recruiter around December. I was told there would be further rounds later on, but did not hear back until nearly 2 months later. It was a group on-site with around ~20 people, and they split us into groups to work on a presentation. They asked us technical questions as we were presenting.
- A lot of high level design questions Answer Question
Flat hourly rate, but the rate is very generous.
