    Pros

    This isn't your usual sports-media company. Bleacher Report offers the opportunity for young writers to showcase and hone their talent. Editors and advisers are always helpful. If you work hard, you can advance!

    Cons

    It's difficult to secure a full-time writing job with Bleacher Report. You might have to put in a lot of work for what seems like minimal gain.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more tools for writers to better develop arguments and theses. Opinion pieces drive Bleacher Report, but a lot of the content I've seen doesn't have much of an argument behind it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Bleacher Report (San Francisco, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    After a couple initial preliminary phone calls, I was given a coding exercise that was iterated upon during the rest of the interview process. After submitting my code, there was a phone screen where I was asked about the decisions I made, and how I would handle additional features. After that came in-person interviews including further iteration of the original code challenge and your customary culture-fit questions.

    Every step of the way kept to the original timeline set at the beginning of the process. I was always kept in the loop on the status of things, and ever set expectation was met or exceeded.

    As far as engineering interviews go, Bleacher Report's process was as practical and relevant to the role as I've ever come across. They are really interested in knowing if you are equipped to the job you are interviewing for, instead of just proving who is smarter. Top class!
