Anonymous Interview Candidate
I applied online. I interviewed at Chess.com in Oct 2023
A quick phonecall with a recruiter, and then a few weeks later a 1:1 call with a design lead. Standard design interview questions, good responses to my questions. I was told I would hear back about next steps in a few days but it has now been almost a month. I suspect I have been ghosted by this company.
- What is your least weakest link in the design process?
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berlin
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Chess.com (Berlin) in Aug 2023
It was a good interview, but the compensation is pretty low if you are outside of the US. This was the main concern. There are three interviews 1. Recruiter 2. Interview with engineer or team lead(no coding challenges) 3. CTO interview
- Tell me about yourself and your experience
I interviewed at Chess.com
The interview process consisted of answering an Intern Questionnaire, which is a mix of Behavioral and few Technical Questions. No Whiteboard Coding when you meet with the team manager. Chill process.
- Question about SQL and Stored Procedures.
I interviewed at Chess.com
Great interview process, especially for a lover of chess! The interview was conducted in a few different stages, after I sent in my application, a recruiter got in touch with me and we had an introductory call after which I was given a task which was reviewed and followed up on by the Director of Business Analytics who I then spoke to as well! I then had brief calls with the VP of CRM, the CEO and the CTO who eventually offered me the job!
- They asked me to complete a data-based task which I could complete in either SQL or python
