    I worked at Chegg as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    As a summer intern with little prior experience in the Technology sector, I grew immensely during my time here. Regardless of the day, there was always something to contribute to and learn from.

    Compensation is competitive.

    Maintaining a good work-life balance was relatively easy to manage.

    Leadership is transparent and constantly communicates across the company.

    Coworkers are smart, hard working, ambitious and most of all, nice!

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chegg Chats are wonderful! Free lunches and summer bike rental are much appreciated!

    I would have enjoyed professional training workshops or modules (either on site or virtual) for technical as well as soft skills.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Chegg in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and I thought I would never hear back. But they did take a month to respond after which I had a phone interview with the head of the internship program. After a couple of days, she said I got through to the next round at which point I had a phone interview with two people who I would possibly work for.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was around 45 minutes long and it was fairly straightforward, nothing I didn't expect. I was well prepared and had done a couple of interviews before so it helped me prepare.   Answer Question
