    Pros

    Working with the other developers. People helped each other and I've learned from the other engineers. Forio managed to hire smart, motivated people that are great to work with. Not much office politics and things were pretty transparent.

    Cons

    On-boarding wasn't as smooth as it could be. Management did not backfill positions after there was employee turnover. I was paid pretty well, but the company's benefits package was weak.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Forio (Pittsburgh, PA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I applied to this job on our university's career board. A few days later, their HR called and asked some general questions about my resume. She specifically asked about my experience with JavaScript.

    A few days later I got a technical phone interview. The interviewer was one of their senior web developers, who was really nice. We used an online coding board (I forgot the name) for the interview. At first I was asked to write some basic CSS (for example to let a div align horizontally on the page). Then I was asked to solve an algorithm question in JavaScript.

    Interview Questions

    • I was expecting some JavaScript questions related to DOM manipulation, instead It was a pure algorithm and data structure question: Revert words in a sentence. For example given "hello world", you need to return "world hello". I was so nervous that at I first I reverted the entire sentence character by character. I was able to correct it in the end but obviously he wasn't very satisfied as it eventually took me a long time to solve this problem.   Answer Question
