    I have been working at Mindspark Interactive Network full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They promote from within if possible, flexible working environment, smart leadership team. They do a lot for the employees-breakfast, events, ability to work from home, time off for the holidays and summer fridays. Generous benefit package and management has an open door policy.

    Cons

    Driving in the city of Yonkers can be frustrating, sick time is lumped into PTO. All in all I can't think of more cons!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it is a great company to work for. It would be nice if the management team made more of an effort to interact with the staff-attending events and getting to know the people that work for them.

    Android Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Mindspark Interactive Network in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview with an HR representative who was very nice and engaging just to gather information about my current situation and reason for my interest in applying for the position.

    A second phone interview was held with the software Engineering Director. Some basic java questions just to feel out my qualifications. Was a very motivated and engaging individual.

    The third interview was in the beautiful IAC building in NY. I met with two project managers who seemed very talented and capable. They wanted to get a feel for what it was like to work with me and how I would solve or at least plan on solving certain problems. Then I met again in person with the Software Engineering Director and he focused all his questions on Android material. Mostly questions related to specific Android Tools rather than algorithm solving and particular solutions. I was a little taken aback since the specific tools are not necessarily required to develop applications in Android and you could conceivably develop applications without them. He also used a lot of acronyms which I was not familiar with. Overall the process and the people were very pleasant and it seems like a promising gig.

    Interview Questions
    • The question that was most puzzling was not because it was difficult but it seemed very subjective and I perhaps thought about it much deeper than necessary. "How many items do you have in a control before it's time to decompose them?"   View Answer
