    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Blue Nile (Seattle, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    1 short behavioral interview with HR, then a second more technical interview later that week. Asked pretty standard questions about OOP concepts and a little JS. If I didn't know an answer to a question, the interviewer would explain the answer before moving on. Both interviewers were friendly, nothing negative to say about the process.
