    Associate Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Criteo.

    Interview

    I was referred by a current employee.

    I began talking to recruiter in January. Formal interview process began in March. I had a phone interview, took their analytical test, and had an "in person interview" via video conference call due to distance. All interviews went really well, I was highly interested in the position! After video interview I was asked to send my availability to fly to Boston to do a sales pitch.

    I followed up to thank those that interviewed me, asked a few questions, and sent my availability. They gave me a date that I would hear back about when i needed to come to Boston, when I didn't hear on that day I emailed the recruiter I had been working with. When I didn't hear after a few days I emailed again and called the office.

    I never heard from recruiter or anyone else in the company after that.

    Terrible communication and extremely unprofessional!

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Criteo (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    1 Phone/Screen Sharing
    4 Rounds of Onsite
    The recruitment team was super nice and probably the only silver lining in the entire process.
    The team was extremely rude so much I did want to walk out. I took up the issue with the co-ordinator during the break but seems like it backfired.The rest of the rounds were even more hostile where I clearly got the feeling that they ganged up against me once the recruiter voiced my concern.There was a small electronic gift which was given to me which I had left in the interview room during the break. When i come back, I see the gift was smashed on the ground trampled with feet.This is the height of nonsense and most unprofessional set of folks I have ever come across in my career.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Criteo (Boston, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly extensive, but the recruiter I worked with was highly responsive and extremely helpful from start to finish.

    The process included four steps:
    1) Screening call
    2) Media math exam
    3) In-person interview
    4) In-person case study presentation

    The process was just under a month, which is quick considering all the steps. Overall I had a very good experience interviewing and was excited to accept the offer.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Criteo (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by recruiters at Palo Alto. We decided to skip the phone interviews since i am local and kinda have a schedule. This is one the best interviewing processes I ever had. The recruiter is very friendly, flexible, and caring the candidate. I didn't feel it was an interview, more like a discussion between friends. Everyone i met was super friendly.
    World-class engineering team, very interesting and promising products, nice office space and location, Great perks. Due to my personal reason (go to a diff area), i didn't move forward; but Criteo is like a hidden gem in silicon valley. Highly recommend.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Criteo (Boston, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I went though the first four steps:

    The first consisted of a 30 minutes chat on the phone about the position and about my background, the company and my motivations with HR.

    The second was a online test. I had to do research on all the formulas used in online marketing, they're very specific. The math is not hard though.

    Third was a 30 minutes talk with a leading member of the the data analyst team I applied for. It was about my background and how I would be a good fit as well as my understanding of the company and some technical questions.

    The fourth was in two parts. I was sent a case study to go through and make into a presentation. It consisted of an excel file full of data, and the prompt was to find something interesting about it and prepare a presentation describing your findings, the method you used and so on.
    The following interview consisted of an hour of brain teasers and math/programming questions. The second hour was about presenting the case study followed by a Q&A session. Then there was another half an hour of questions, more personal and motivational, where I got a chance to ask questions of my own.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Criteo in March 2017.

    Interview

    I received a phone screen one week after I applied online. The recruiter was very nice. She mentioned that she would contact me later next week. But she never reached me back after the interview. I found that there were some other people have the same experience. So if you are not selected, they won't let you know later.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Lengthy interview process that took a month. It consisted of a phone screening that went amazingly well, and a couple of weeks later an in person interview,. After that I was given a home assessment test (a few marketing materials to produce) and a week later there was a video conference to discuss such test.

    I was definitely overdressed compared at my in-person interview compared to my interviewer who was in jeans, t-shirt and timberlands. That set the tone and feeling so self-conscious, I thought I totally blew the interview. They asked questions that were specific to their product and operations which I thought was a bit unfair for someone who is not yet familiar with their company structure. However I did get the assessment materials emailed to me 5 days later. About a week after that I discussed the materials I produced via video conference with the same interviewer. When I didn't hear anything after a week I emailed them. I heard back a few days later with a rejection.
