    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, CT
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was set up with a recruiter put through a recruiter screening and then told I was going to have a call with senior software engineer to talk about my projects. When I got the phone call it actually was a technical interview which I wasn't expecting and felt unprepared for. If I had known it wasn't going to just be talking about my work I would have studied for the interview but it seems like they try to throw you off on purpose

    Two phone screenings and a face to face interview. They were very positive and upbeat about their department. If you match their excitement you should be okay. They are looking for what kind of equipment and programs you know how to use for the most part.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First, I received an email for a phone interview one week after I sent the application. After the phone interview, they scheduled an in-person interview at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, CT. Once I got there, they took me in a shuttle to the building where I was going to be interviewed.
    I was interviewed by two people. They asked about my experience, my skills with softwares, my sports preferences. Also, they asked if I have watched any of their channels and what I like about the company. Both of them were very polite and friendly and made it look like a regular conversation. After the interview, they took me to a little tour in the creative department where I sat with one of the workers and she showed me the softwares and projects she was working on.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had two rounds of interviews - one remote in person (about 30 minutes, pretty casual), one on-site in Bristol. They were VERY accommodating! Flew me in, rented me a car, booked a hotel, and everything was taken care of. The on site interview was very extensive, 5 or 6 hours of interviews non stop, even during lunch it was kind of an interview. Got a nice tour, overall was nice. Blend of technical and behavioral questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in September 2016.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews, then flew out to Bristol. Then I had to provide 5 professional references via some online survey service. The whole process took over 3 months and was horribly organized. At the end I had to email them twice before they called me and told me they gave the position to an internal hire. No wonder they are losing hundred of thousands subscribers every month...

    Interview Questions

    • Easy/typical questions until Bristol. The Bristol interview seemed more like an endurance competition than anything else.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at ESPN (Bristol, CT) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very short by phone and very generic. Once I got to the in-person interview. I think there was too much focus on how much I was getting paid and how much they couldn't afford to pay even though that wasn't my focus.
