    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at AOL (Dulles, VA) in July 2016.

    Interview process was rigorous, yet pleasant. I was interviewed first by the SVP of the department, then by the Technical Director, both by phone. After that, I was invited for an on-site, in-person interview with everyone from SVP down to my future team. Everybody was incredibly warm, welcoming, open and honest. Aside from the obligatory questions about experience and culture fit, expectations were made clear in a friendly, "These are the deliverables that we are hoping to receive from your position."

    All-in-all, the interview process was outstanding. I had a great time, and was glad to be accepted onto the team.

    Full Stack Developer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at AOL (Dulles, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The process was quick. Friday the Recruiter told me about the opening of a new position at AOL and after a technical screening with the project manager in the team I was called in for a 4.5 hours in-person interview on Wednesday with 6 people all separately.

    The interview had 3 technical people and 3 behaviorial analyser people. The technical people asked very general questions about basic HTML, CSS, Javascript and PHP questions and a few performance and troubleshooting technique questions. The non technical people asked about the experience and how I handled different situations at work,

    After going through all the interviews with flying colors (in my opinion), they call me on Friday to tell me my java script skills were not enough for the role though they enjoyed talking to me. They had almost no questions related to javascript during the interview and they said I was not strong enough in Javascript. I guess they were just trying to find reaason for not accepting me in. Anyways nothing but time was lost for me.

    Looked great for a work place. Everyone over there who interviewed me have been working for over 10 years at AOL.
