    Former Contractor - Data Entry Clerk in Emeryville, CA

    I worked at Gracenote as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Commendable staff, laid back dress code, always busy with projects, conveniently situated near a shopping center and good restaurants, outstanding compensation, flexible scheduling, patient when offering constructive criticism, thorough training.

    Cons

    Did not seem like there were many promotion opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider less meetings. Staff often met while I was there and you could tell it was a little irritating. Otherwise, keep up the great work.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Gracenote.

    Interview Details

    Saw direct job posting, and applied online. Got a call from the recruiter a bit later. Did a phone screen with another senior dev and they moved right into the in-person. Multiple members on hiring "panel" weren't available that day and the usual litany of whiteboard questions followed with the ones who were there. Most having to do with large file data import problems. One was a question about how to structure the database for a television listing service.
