    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Twitter.

    Interview Details

    It was a telephonic interview, Very monotonous.

    Interviewer was asking for pre-written standard questions without any further discussion. Looks like he was not interested from the start itself.

    One week later, I got the standard email

    Interview Details

    2 phone screen, and then went onsite. The recruiter is very efficient in setting up the interview process. Didn't ask too much machine learning questions. Most of them are coding questions.Have a probability question. Not only asking function implementation, but also the object-oriented knowledge.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Interview Details

    Two rounds of phone interview with standard questions. One of the interviewers was very inquisitive of my current projects at my current employer, to the extent that it made me uncomfortable. Besides that the rest of the interview was pretty standard. They also asked a few 'behavioral' type of questions.

    Interview Details

    Twitter is unique because they have you speak to the hiring manager before you speak to HR. Unfortunately, HR is unprofessional and unhelpful. If that's indicative of the way they run the company, I wouldn't want to work there anyway.

    Real Estate and Workplace Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Twitter.

    Interview Details

    Long...they have you interview with EVERYONE that you'd have interaction with, which means a lot of people without really clear direction of the position they are hiring for. I was flown out to their corporate office, took time off of work numerous times to just be left hanging because they wanted to find other candidates that they could match me with. Although the prospect to work for a company like Twitter is great the process of the interview and the lack of transparency throughout the process hindered the want to even become part of the team.

    Account Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Twitter.

    Interview Details

    This was by far one of the best interview experiences that I've ever had. The recruiter was kind, helpful, and always available to answer my questions. After my phone screen, I had a phone interview with one of the hiring managers, and then two round of in-person interviews. The process was seamless, and even fun. The team itself was also top-notch. At the end of the day I was told that my feedback was all positive, but the hiring manager chose to hire someone else based on preference. I truly appreciate that they were willing to provide feedback. I would consider interviewing for another opportunity at twitter simply based on their recruiting process.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Twitter.

    Interview Details

    Went through 2 phone interviews and an onsite loop, with a total of 7 interviews. All the interviews went fairly well. The recruiter called me after the onsite saying that she got feedback from everyone except one person and the feedback were all positive. For about a month after that, the only update from the recruiter was that they were just waiting for the missing feedback. After a month, the recruiter eventually told me that they had closed down the position! What a waste of my time.

    Legal Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Twitter.

    Interview Details

    Had an initial interview with HR, then another interview with the woman who would be my direct supervisor (both over the phone). Their interviewing skills are poor- it's clear they're reading from some sort of script, and the few times they do veer from it they pick something irrelevant to the job.
