    Senior Product Owner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DraftKings (Boston, MA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn and I had a phone screen with the recruiter. I then had another phone interview with the Director of Delivery Management. Within a week, I was brought in for a onsite interview. I met with a number of people who were friendly, laid back and made me feel comfortable. Everyone I met was helpful and asked me different questions (which I found is not always the case when companies do these types of interviews). Unfortunately, the hiring manager was on vacation that week that I came in so I had to come in the following week to meet with him. However, I had received positive feedback from the recruiter between the initial onsite and the follow up and he phrased it as "we want to make sure that you like who you will be working for and vice versa" which I appreciated. Since this was the beginning of the summer, it took about another 1.5 weeks to get an offer and another few days following to negotiate and get the paperwork signed. Overall, great experience and the interview process was the reason why I accepted the job.

    The overall interview process was pretty good. Recruiters and interviewers were friendly and very responsive. It took about 2 months for the whole process. Didn't make it to the end though.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DraftKings in April 2020.

    Interview

    A phone call from the recruiter asking about the agile process and what roles and responsibilities after that I was asked to do a technical phone screen which I believe I did very well and explained my code to the interviewer. I solved all the parts of the coding challenge in the stipulated time which is not easy to do given that you have to wrap around your head to problem statement and at the same time come up with a solution.

    Contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn, had a phone screen then he sent me a HackerRank coding challenge. Hardest coding challenge I've had by far including FANG companies. Impossible for me to complete in 1.5 hours.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DraftKings.

    Interview

    Hands down the most organized interview I've had. A recruiter reached out out to me the day after I applied on LinkedIn. There was a screen call then followed up with a 2 hour onsite interview (met with four people). They asked standard industry questions and followed up with a few open ended ones. The vibe was casual and everyone on the loop was welcoming.

    The team reached out to me a few days later and sent an offer. Everyone involved in the hiring process was efficient and attentive.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening. Great professional conversation. I thought everything went very well until a question of future sponsorship was raised. I think they were looking for someone who is not seeking sponsorship.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    1 Hour Coding interview. Moved on to the next round and they flew me out to HQ in Boston. 1 hour of whiteboarding, 30 minutes of interview over stuff on my resume, then lunch for culture-fit interview. First two interviews were pretty average, but the culture-fit interview was poor in my mind because I was stuck with someone who couldn't really hold a conversation if it wasn't about the Android libraries he was gushing over at the moment. Got a call a week later saying I would hear back in a week and that they were impressed with my technical skills. Didn't hear anything for a month so I emailed and they responded saying it would be another week. Got an email saying I was a rejected a week later. Not a fan of this process.

    Lead Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DraftKings (Boston, MA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Was given college level coding challenge assignment (some classes that supposed to reflect the user's management system), finished successfully; the assignment has raised the question what did they try to test? For the person with my skills and experience that was frustrating.
    After the coding exercise interviewer did not come to the call twice. Every time I had to contact recruiter to ask what is going on? was getting e-mail with an excuse in 40 minutes or so.
    I still do not understand why it was so difficult to shoot an e-mail and reschedule the meeting in advance?
    Withdrew the application; IMHO the company could have improved the basic business culture.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DraftKings.

    Interview

    Bad. I have to say that the HR is really UNEFFICIENT. I got the feedback of onsite the interview after a month... after I emailed him three times! It's really unfair that other's question is the restaurant design but for me, a new one!!! The employer was late for ten minutes, and he found the question for another 10 mins. So there are just 40 mins for me to solve the OOD. That's ridiculous!
