    Technical Architect Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dow Jones (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contacted by email first, exchanged with a few emails, took an online interview where coding test played the majority role. The questions were very difficult for non-top-coders. Completed the first question with great difficulty, then failed at the second one. It should be a genuine position for professional programmers and I have a lot of respect for that.

    Customer Service Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dow Jones (Princeton, NJ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter called and set up a phone interview. After the phone interview went well, I was invited for a very long in person interview. It was about 5 people you had to have separate interviews asking the same exact questions. At the end you had to met with another person for some sort of ridiculous personality assessment. The whole thing was aggravating due to the long process for such a low paying position.
