    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CBS Interactive (Louisville, KY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    My interview was pretty laid back. I was asked a few general programming questions and general interview style questions (i.e., Where do you see yourself in 5 years). No coding questions were asked.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CBS Interactive (New York, NY) in May 2008.

    Interview

    Phone interviewed before going on site. One day interview at their offices in NY. Coding challenge that was trivial -- I also had to present on any subject i wanted, several questions were asked afterwards. Technical interview was easy (C++, SQL, Pel). For C++, reading "effective C++" by Meyers suffices, Perl stuff was pretty easy too, so was SQL.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CBS Interactive (Brentwood, TN) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I've had the best interview process with CBS Interactive. My recruiter reached out to me the next day after I submitted my application, and she was very prompt on scheduling my interviews. The whole process took around 3 weeks. The interview process consisted of 3 stages: a phone screen with a recruiter, a technical phone screen with a manager, and a technical on-site interview with a manager and several other interviewers. They were also extremely helpful in preparing me for each step in the interviewing process. It was a really great experience.

    Interview Questions

    • There were couple of short coding questions to make sure you actually know how to code.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CBS Interactive in March 2016.

    Interview

    I went through two rounds of interviews. One was a phone screen with the hiring manager and the other was a Skype interview with two engineers on the team. Both instances questioned me about my experience, projects, and past positions. A majority of the interview was behavioral. The technical side of things was basic (but essential, of course).
