    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at AOL.

    Interview

    The college recruitment team was fantastic. They were very personable and kept me up to date on everything that was going on. I was originally bought in to interview for one position which I didn't get. However, after a couple of months, I was called up and asked to if I wanted to come back in for a different position involving software analysis and user-end communication. I obliged. Was bought in for one interview, where I interviewed with a few team members and a few days later was told that I had the job. They were very fast in all communications and helpful to me.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no really technical questions, mostly personable questions, and experience questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at AOL (New York, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview with HR, and then had two interviews from two different editors in person. There was nothing difficult about it. They were pretty clear about the job description. One of the editors was not very friendly but that's just how she was as a person. It was fairly casual, nothing to worry about too much.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AOL (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    It was arranged through our university and AOL brought in 30 students for interview yet only hired 2 people. We had a written test with stuff as easy as fizz buzz, basic syntax tests, basic SQL and HTML stuff. After the technical test, I had an interview with HR about my experience in teams and volunteering. I then had a technical interview where they had my test that I had done earlier. The interviewers were really friendly.
