    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo in August 2013.

    Interview

    Talent Manager was super charming and did a great job of selling the position/company. She also provided a very clear picture of what I'd be walking into. The rest of the interview panel had a good understanding of my background without me having to tell too much - it was clear they knew the industry/function well.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    There were 4 steps in this process in the following order: a phone screen, an online aptitude test, an in-person interview and an in-person mock sales pitch. Overall, the process was manageable and the person I interviewed with first on the phone screen helped me out throughout the entire process which was a big plus. Looking forward to starting my career here!

    Application

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

    Initial phone calls w recruiter (Tess was incredibly helpful throughout the interview process). Online test (easy if you look over the material beforehand). Interview with two Criteo employees. Flown out to Boston for a presentation. Pitch the Criteo product to 5 employees. Incredibly difficult last round.

    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!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First a phone call with a hiring manager, then an analytical test on different digital marketing terms and metrics. They give you plenty of material to prepare for the test, can only really see it being difficult for someone not comfortable with numbers. After I passed the test I had Skype interviews with two of the sales directors. Pretty easy conversations just looking to get to know me on a personal level of sorts. After I passed those, they flew me out to Boston to do a presentation. The presentations is essentially just a pitch of the Criteo Value prop to a random company of your choice. They give you plenty of material to prepare with and the presentation is for 4 people at once who are listening and bouncing questions off you. Got the offer a few days later and I couldn't be more excited! Great people and excellent recruiting process.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Criteo (Palo Alto, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process was very swift and ended in a week and a half. The recruiter reached out to me and spent enough time in giving insight about the company and offered documentation explaining the forthcoming process and what to expect. It starts with a Skype interview covering CS fundamentals and a coding question, followed by onsite interviews, 2 technical, 1 design and 1 HR. Each interview is an hour long and necessarily covers one of your projects listed on the resume for the first quarter.

    The interviewers were friendly enough and would work on the solution with you instead of condescendingly posing them. The questions that you ask about the team and company at the end are noted to evaluate your interest in the company which apparently drives a positive culture.

    Interview Questions

    • Pick the project that you found most interesting to work on, drilled on its details and then why did you choose this project.

      Design question was challenging and very comprehensive   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (Palo Alto, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Overall interview process was okay. Not too bad but still startup style which is not well organized. Interviews were fairly normal. It's not difficult. You can solve all of them if you ever checked interview books or leet code.
    I got an offer after interview. It took ~1 week.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Initial offer was funny. They offered way lower salary than my current job. Base salary was ~20k lower than mine. RSUs were even lower.
    I thought recruiter was making a joke. I heard later, apparently, that it was not a joke.
