    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Grubhub (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The first contact was with the internal recruiter, who really impressed me with all of her in-depth questions about my background what technologies I have used in the past. The next step was a phone screen, which was 50% about my background and 50% coding. The problem was pretty straight forward.

    I was then invited to the on-site interview. One session was OOP design and algo. I felt the OOP was pretty open ended, but the algorithm question was quite challenging. I couldn't find the optimal data structures for the problem. The second session was another coding session. I should have been able to answer that question fairly easily, but still, I struggled. I guess I was having a bad day. Another session was a system design question which I found very interesting and fun to answer. The last session was behavioral, which was mostly about my background. The other reviewers are right, the interview questions are great because they are based on real problems that GrubHub has had to solve.

    Overall, I got a very good impression of the company. It looks like they have a lot of smart and down to earth people working there. And it looks like they are solving interesting problems with really cutting edge technologies.

    While I'm disappointed that I didn't get an offer, I totally understand why I didn't get one, and I would absolutely re-apply given the chance.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grubhub (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard. Applied online (also could have applied through my university's career fair) and that was followed by an on campus interview. On campus interview consisted of probably 30 minutes of typical behavioral questions followed by a coding challenge that I worked through with the interviewer. The next step was an on site interview day. There I had a more challenging algorithm design question and also an architecture design question. One thing I liked about the questions asked during the on site interview was they were related to the business itself (rather than just asking you to regurgitate Djikstra's or something).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Grubhub (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a staffing Agency for this role and after I submitted my resume soon the Phone screen was Scheduled. Phone interview was for 30 mins with a Director to know more about my Background and the projects that I had worked on. After that I was called for an onsite interview. The interview consisted of 3 rounds. Initial coding and 2 rounds of Architecture with Senior Manager and Directors. Everything was a positive experience until this point where in I got to meet very nice people who were polite and professional.

    After that I was again called for an onsite round to meet with a VP. This is the only time when I had the negative experience in the whole interview process. The VP arrived 15 mins late and did not even introduce him formally nor did he apologize for coming in late. He started chatting without asking me about my professional summary. While I was responding he was typing in his phone for initial 5 mins and was not paying attention. Then he asked me the question "Tell me what are you good at" and started asking very low Technical questions. He asked 4-5 questions and stopped after 20 mins with still 20 mins to spare. After a few days got to know from the Staffing Agency that they will be moving with another candidate.

    Senior Data Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Grubhub (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    A friend referred me for the position and a recruiter reached out to me. The recruiter asked me over the phone about my career path, goals, and technical skills. She told me a lot about the company. Then I interviewed with the lead for one team, and the role was more data engineering than business analysis and I think we both sensed that it wasn't a good fit. The recruiter reached out again and said the guy with whom I interviewed recommended me for another position. I interviewed with someone else, and I think it went better, but then the recruiter told me I would not receive an offer. Everyone with whom I spoke was courteous and smart.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Grubhub (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process took about 3 weeks all together. I applied online and then received an email from HR to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty basic and just went into detail about the position and asked about my interest in Grubhub. The HR woman was extremely friendly and personable. The next step was to complete an online personality assessment and then the same HR woman reached out to me to set up an in person interview at the office. I interviewed with two managers at the same time in a conference room. It was extremely laid back and felt more like a conversation. They were really nice and easy to talk to. I heard back a day later with the job offer and was more than happy to accept. The office is very cool/modern looking and the the people I have met so far have been great.

    Senior Data Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Grubhub in June 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted via Hired.com to interview for Data Scientist position. Did not apply for this position. Had three phone interviews to tell me that I am best suited for a Data Analyst position. Spoke with the team lead; interview went well. Team lead even said that I was considered for face-to-face interview, and should here about the details within a week. However, didn't here back from the recruiter(s). Had to email the recruiter twice to receive feedback. Eventually received feedback that they were moving forward with a "candidate that was more aligned to the team needs." Interview was a waist of time, but I was fully warned by the prior reviews here on Glassdoor.
