    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Bloomingdale's (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    A single, 30-minute phone interview followed up by a 90-minute in-person interview three days later.

    The hiring manager walked in to the office in which I was waiting, handed me his computer and told me to solve a problem pre-formatted in a JSFiddle page on his machine. He then proceeded to do some work on another machine in the room while I got to work on the solution. Thirty minutes later, I was finished, we were done, and it was clear that this wasn’t a good fit for either of us.
