    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Question about sql skills, past projects and learnings, some basic modeling questions in a tool which I used before   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Giving an interview for a Data Science position is an extremely tricky task that requires very skillful interviewers. It is very easy to go down the wrong path and miss good candidates. People at Chegg seem to be nice people that they definitely need some work to do in their interviewing skills. Not getting an offer from the people at Chegg did not worry me at all. It seems that they are still in the process of figuring things out for themselves.

    Business Operations Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chegg (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Had a great experience with Chegg. I initially applied to be an Inventory Analyst (contract) role. Had a phone interview, and was invited to come on-site. When I arrived on-site, I interviewed with 3 managers who all ask fairly standard questions. They asked about my background, some situational questions, my skill set, and my future goals. Towards the end, they asked if I could stay an extra 45 minutes to take an Excel test.

    The next day, I received an offer from another company and I notified Chegg. They called me within an hour or two and told me they could have a response by tomorrow, and asked if I could do one last phone interview with a Data Scientist at Chegg that same day. Had a great conversation with the Data Scientist - he was very engaging and we discussed my passions and my goals, as well as my skill set. He asked some challenging questions about problem solving and predictive analytics. Around this time I asked if I was still being interviewed to be an Inventory Analyst and they said they were now considering me for the Business Operations Analyst position.

    They offered the next day.

    Overall a very positive experience. All my interviewers were professional, welcoming, and intelligent. People at Chegg are passionate about what they do and they have a great vision.

    Interview Questions
