    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chegg (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    I had a great phone screening with the HR Recruiter, then hiring manager and was brought in to meet with 4-5 people. Here's what really bothered me that I wanted to share: The VP was the very last person to meet with me. She took one look at my resume (it seemed to be the very first time she saw my resume) and said "Oh you don't have X Skill. We can't have someone w/out X Skill fill this position". Needless to say I didn't get an offer which is fine, but if they knew this would be a requirement from the VP, I wish they hadn't wasted my time (and theirs) by bringing me in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Chegg (Santa Clara, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screens from HR and hiring manager
    SQL test. The questions are straightward
    On site (Meet with 4-5 people), in which I need to give a presentation
    They could possibly verbally grant you an offer during on-site, which I think is just to hold you before you move forward with other companies. Eventually nothing official came out and no one even responded to your followups.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chegg.

    Interview

    I had a phone screening with the recruiter. It was very short and definitely felt like she was just following a checklist. I didn't get a chance to ask any questions. She said she wanted to get me in front of the hiring manager and I should hear by a certain day. When that day came and went, I followed up. She was apologetic and said she would get back to me later. Same thing happened again. In the end I heard nothing either way - no interview and no rejection.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chegg (Portland, OR) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick and straightforward. I appreciated the efficiency and directness. I was contacted on a Monday and had a phone interview two days later. At the end of the phone interview, we scheduled a Skype interview for the next day. I was then contacted after the Skype interview and an in-person interview was scheduled for one week later. I was called with an offer the day after the in-person interview.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Chegg.

    Interview

    there are three rounds of phone interview with a data scientist, hiring manager and tech interview. All three rounds went well and then they brought me on site. However after meeting with the hiring manager again, she told the HR that I am not senior level data scientist, but a junior although I was told this position is junior level.

    The hiring manager asked basically same questions as she did over the phone interview, I gave similar answers/examples. She also asked how I would resolve a question that they are working on. These questions could be asked during phone interview and screen me out. It is unprofessional, but seems like happen often by reading other reviews on glass door.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Chegg in August 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR, then two phone interviews with managers. The interview was really easy and really straight forward. Overall the whole process took 11 days from the time I submitted my application. Once I started talking to HR/managers, everything moved very quickly. This was by far one of the better interview processes that I have gone through in my career.

    Javascript Engineer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chegg (San Francisco, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty standard tech interview process ala 2016. First a phone screen with a company recruiter, then a take home test, then onsite. The take home test was supposed to be done in 3 hours, but in reality I doubt anyone could finish it this quickly and up to standard. The onsite interview took 4 hours and was pretty friendly, although I didn't get to tour the office or meet anyone else besides the few people who interviewed. Aside from that, I think it obvious that they're seeking (and holding out for) the rare unicorn who is off the charts both in computer science, knows a language or two outside of Javascript, in addition to a deep knowledge of front end/UI development itself. Apparently, they have been trying to fill this particular position for 1-2 years. All in all, I feel like my time was wasted because I let them know from the beginning what my strengths/weaknesses were, yet the interview mainly focused on the weak parts.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Chegg (Santa Clara, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The worst interview experience, I wonder how Chegg is recruiting.
    They have to change, rather then selling books they have to read books now.
    The interview I attended did not relate with the roles and responsibilities mentioned for the job description.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chegg (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Most rude interviewer I've encountered: after talking to me on the phone for less than 10mins, she hang up without saying anything at all. I called right back, didn't wait a second, and asked whether she had a bad reception/signal. She acted like she didn't know who I was and what we'd talked about. I was very clear: " hi, this is [my name], it seems we just got cut out, do you have a bad reception on your end?" She paused for few secs, I thought she would hang up again, she said nothing about the hanging up or whatever else it was on her side, and wrapped up the "conversation" in about 3 mins, saying that I'll hear back from them if they decide to move forward with an in-person interview.
    She mentioned nothing about whether she was having trouble hearing me on the phone or anything like that, nothing about ending the previous discussion we were having on one of my past projects. Rudest person I've spoken too, and I hope she gets fired for such behavior. If I knew who her supervisor is I'd would have contacted them directly.
