    Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Classmates (Seattle, WA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Did a tech interview with a non-techinical recruiter which involved answering questions that were clearly provided by someone more technical, then did a phone screen with one of the engineers. The phone screen involved fairly specific questions on particular technologies like Spring and Hibernate and was pretty short, with the interviewer not providing any time for me to ask questions about the work environment. Decided not to continue the process based on this and the published salary ranges.

    Program Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Classmates (Seattle, WA) in February 2008.

    Interview

    I found the job myselff on their web site and applied, received a call back from their recruiter the next day. they have a very good recruiter and she is easy to work with. Once I made it through the recruiting interview they set up a time for me to come in during that time I had three interviews first with a group of PM's (sometimes they do this other times it's one on one). This was followed up with an interview with the hiring manager and once it looked like a hire there as an interview with the SVP of the group. Overall if was quite an easy process as interviews go.

    - Phone screen by recruiter, two phone discussions overall
    - Group interview with 5 Program Managers at once. Fairly easy process (1 hour)
    - 1 on 1 interview with hiring manager ( 1 hour)
    - 1 on 1 interview with hiring manager's manager (1 hour)

    Interview Questions

    • No really difficult questions, just standard ones about PMLC, SDLC, waterfall, agile, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiated extra 10k in salary above their normal salary ceiling. Negotiated extra week of vacation in first year (off the books) since their first year vacation allowance is a ridiculous 2 weeks.

    Marketing Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Classmates in June 2008.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview with the internal recruiter, followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager, and finally an in-person interview with a handful of peers and the hiring manager again (45 mins each). Recruiter was unorganized - forgot she pushed the start time 1 hour and evidently forgot to tell the interview loop, so everyone's schedule got messed up. Not impressed with the team - mostly C players.
