    Front End Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Evernote.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was selected and scheduled for a phone screen. The interviewer called 10 minutes late and her first question was, did you apply or did I reach out to you on hired? This was a red flag. The interviewer barely bothered to read my resume. Then, when my years of experience did not match her expectation, the interview was immediately ended. She apologized profusely because my experience was clearly expressed on my resume and she had failed to read it.

    Customer Support Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Evernote (Austin, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    1. Had an initial phone screening with a Senior Recruiter (30 min).

    2. Phone interview with the hiring manager (30 min).

    3. Invited to an onsite interview which was divided into 4 segments: meet and greet with the office manager, 1st round with 2 senior managers in the support department, 2nd round met with the hiring manager whom I spoke on the phone with and the training and implementation manager, 3rd round was a written test asking "Describe how to make a PB&J sandwich?" (2 Hours total)

    3. After this onsite interview I was told by the Senior Recruiter that he would reach out to me with their decision but he never did. After a week went by I had to send another follow up email requesting to know if they had decided to move forward with my application. They then proceeded to respond with a generic email saying I didn't get the job. I'm perfectly fine that I didn't get the job though I was disappointed. Only thing that rubbed me the wrong way was they sent me the incorrect generic email. The email they sent me thanked me for speaking with them on the phone... Huh? We spoke onsite! Sent them a follow up email thanking them for letting me know but recommended they be more courteous of people's time and let them know of their decisions rather than leaving them in the dark. As well when you send a rejection email at least do your due diligence and make sure you send the correct generic email.

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Evernote (Redwood City, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    - Phone call with recruiter
    - Phone call with hiring manager
    - 2 hour onsite to assess fit (2 sessions)
    - 3 hour onsite with team (4 sessions)

    There were two main themes:
    - I was given a problem / challenge associated with the product and asked to go through the process of how I would solve it
    - I was asked situational / behavioral questions

    The interview was pretty straightforward, no curveballs. It seems that Evernote is no longer asking candidates to prepare a presentation. I enjoyed meeting with the team. Everyone was extremely professional and the interviews themselves were more conversational, so the entire process was low stress.

    The Evernote recruiting team is top notch, and were extremely helpful throughout the entire process

    Advice: Make sure you use the product and try to empathize with the users. Approach each session as if you were in a work meeting with a coworker, as opposed to providing robotic answers to an interview question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Evernote.

    Interview

    A debugging round with a real life bug in a real life system, a system design round, a deep dive round talking about previous projects. Very disappointed that they don't reimburse local candidate travel expense to/from the interview site - I wouldn't have interview if they told me before the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Evernote (Austin, TX) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Very smooth interview process! Initial phone screen with questions about your work experience and what you’re looking for. Next was a phone interview with the Sales Manager with similar questions. From there, I had a video interview with a team member abroad, an on-site interview and then a video interview with the SVP of sales. The process took about 2.5 weeks. This company has an awesome culture that translated well through everyone I spoke with.

    Software Engineer (Data) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Evernote (Redwood City, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Two phone screen followed by onsite interview. 4-5 round on-site interviews. The process took 5+ weeks (online application -> result)

    All the interviewers I met were nice and friendly. This goes for the h.r as well. Well arranged process at most levels.

    # Interviews
    Easy-Mid level leetcode questions in phone screen rounds. Onsite interview consists of System design, two rounds of coding (mid leetcode), a round of debugging and ends with a chat with the CTO.

    #Result
    I got a reject, even though the interviews had gone good. They need people with more experience in 'xyz'. Another thread in glassdoor mentions similar reason. Sucks to go all the way and know this after on-site.

    Overall it was a good experience. Met few great guys and will probably apply to other teams someday.

    Though if you are planning to apply(data) and have <5yr experience, please clarify the expectations well in advance. Can't stress this point enough
