The process took a day - interviewed at XS in June 2009.

Interview Details – Interview process was long and had several sessions, some with single people and some as panels. Questions ranged from basic concepts, such as defining classes from common physical objects, to basic database design (design 2-3 tables that hold this information), to intermediate level SQL queries (design queries for multi-table joins, cross-joins, etc on paper without a reference). Additional questions centered around cultural fit and an introduction tot he company.

Accountant Interview


I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at XS in July 2012.

Interview Details – The phone interview went well and I went for the face to face the following day. Management wasn't interested in talking about ANY of my work experience, they were more interested in how well I'd fit in. I was told employees are required to spend a lot of time after work together socially. It was emphasized that employees that are not interested in spending every waking moment with their co workers either wind up quitting or are fired.

Interview Question – Tell me about a personal experience involving building something and how you approached the process (or something along those lines).   View Answer
