    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Vudu in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was approached by an internal recruiter. Was a pretty standard process: phone screen, then a full panel interview that lasted over 6 hours.

    Their location was hard to find, and they didn't provide proper lunch. Just snacks and colas. That's Wal-mart for ya.

    They showed me their digs: very small cubes, almost claustrophobic, drab wall colors.

    At the conclusion of the meeting, I asked what were next steps: another full-round of grilling. Well, my mind switched off on them when I heard that. Very picky people.

    I was told about a week later that they're still talking to other candidates. I guess they couldn't come to tell me I'm not what they want. Oh well.
