    Brand Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at AdRoll in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was quickly put in touch with the hiring manager after applying online, and appreciated not having to go through a typical HR interview which I find is often times not very meaningful. However, the interview process was mixed, in which the company expected you to basically do work for them as part of the interview around. I strongly believe in having some type of assignment to show one's ability if questions are not able to gather that, but I don't believe in doing it for the company that you're interviewing for. So for example, I shouldn't be doing an assignment on AdRoll as there is already a bias of the company with more information than what you have. I also found the follow-through to be suboptimal with multiple exchanges that did not end up anywhere positive.

    Interview

    Initial call with recruiter. Then a coderpad challenge. 1 Skype call with remote folks and finally on site interviews. On site consisted of white boarding and also coding on laptop. Overall, all the people seem pleasant and passionate about their work. Of course, all of them were very bright. My experience was positive although I didn't get offer.

    Solutions Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at AdRoll (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The process took about 4 weeks. It was quick, painless and the technical recruiter moving me through was completely transparent and open the entire time. Very friendly and respectful.

    First step was a technical phone screen with the recruiter. Some technical questions were asked on topics of my choosing. Next, I spoke with the hiring manager who asked about my experience and more technical questions on similar topics. I was invited onsite shortly afterwards and met with several folks from the SF team via hangout in the NY office. Technical questions around SQL and Javascript were asked in the onsite. Found out I received the offer less than a week after!

    Machine Learning Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AdRoll (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen then onsite with 4 team members. Interviewing with Adroll was an extremely efficient and professional process: everyone was extremely bright, fun, and enthusiastic, and the interviews felt more like conversations with colleagues rather than being grilled on the spot. There was a mix of both technical and non-technical questions.

    The recruiter (P. G.) was very prompt in giving feedback and coordinating meetings, and from the whole experience, it's clear that Adroll makes it a priority to take care of their people. Although I ultimately decided not to take the offer due to personal reasons, it was a great experience and would very much reconsider if the future permitted.

    Senior Commercial Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AdRoll in February 2017.

    Interview

    I felt that I was late to the interview process because the job had been posted for a month and a half already, but the General Counsel let me go through the interview process. I first did a phone interview with the paralegal (hit it off great with her!) and then moved to in-person interviews (on 2 separate days).

    Everyone in this small legal department was fantastic and super nice and I felt very comfortable talking with them. The General Counsel, to my mind, works hard to create a legal team of people who are down-to-earth and kind. They are also self-starters and not afraid to roll up their sleeves to do what they need to do to get the job done.

    I also interviewed with non-legal people at AdRoll and they were very kind as well. It's clear that they work hard, but it's a friendly atmosphere.

    I definitely recommend this company and if you get a chance, I recommend applying for a position in the legal department if one comes open. A++++

    User Experience Research Lead Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AdRoll (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    This was the most efficient and painless interview process I have been through. Everything moved fairly quickly, and there was always a clear picture of what next steps would look like. There were four interviews before the on-site, but one of those was to connect with people who would not be there in-person for the visit, so that seems like a reasonable number. The recruiters are the most responsive and friendliest that I have dealt with; there's no doubt that working with them was a highlight of the experience. They also very kindly offered to have a call with feedback after they declined to make an offer (but essentially of their feedback was positive, so I'm not sure how much I could glean from it; still nice of them to offer).
