    I have been working at OpenTable full-time for more than 3 years


    Really great culture at the company, with a nice overlap between working hard to bring wonderful products to the world of dining and also having fun, with lots of free food and drinks and fun times together.


    Recently bought by Priceline, so wondering what that will mean for the company. But all seems great so far. I think Priceline understands the value of the Opentable culture and will let it continue to flourish.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at OpenTable.

    Interview Details

    Initial call from recruiter, then technical phone screen, then in person 4-5 people over 4-5 hours. Culture is apparently changing but still a lot of negativity in the air, most of the interviewers complained about something related to their job. A tour of the office told me everything I needed to know. They emailed the next day with a decline.
