    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at IXL Learning in December 2017.

    Interview

    The other interview reviews are right -- they are just using people for free work. I had a really nice conversation with one of the other math curriculum designers. They then sent me a task to write an explanation for a solution to a problem on their website. It also included a task that had me fix another explanation that already existed. I'm convinced they are just trying to get new ideas from people without hiring them.

    Interview

    The Recruiter setup an interview with a designer from IXL Learning. I spoke with the designer with basic background questions. I passed the phone screen, so they had me do a design challenge. They gave a week; more if you needed additional time to design 3 mock-ups. The thing that I do not like about this request is they don't pay you for your time. Other companies do. It's ridiculous to ask for 3 mock-ups. One mock-up would be fair for your free time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IXL Learning in November 2017.

    Interview

    This is really bad and disappointing from the recruiter.
    I cleared the 4 coding questions on hacker rank followed by a phone screen.

    The interviewer even mentioned after the phone screen that he would call me to the onsite. In addition he followed up next week by calling me to find out about my visa status, nearest airport and other details that are necessary to make travel arrangement and 1 week later they reply saying they are going ahead with more suited candidates.

    Way to go people , way to go !

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at IXL Learning (Santa Rosa, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    hackerrank, then from what i've read on the other posts here i'm assuming its tech phone interviews with an onsite in the end. I literally passed all test cases with plenty of time to spare (questions were very straight forward), yet I got my very standard rejection email. It would've been nice if they could at least give some feedback, yet no response afterwards. Continually ghosting candidates and giving no feedback is precisely why IXL is getting more and more bad interview reviews.

    Curriculum Designer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IXL Learning (Raleigh, NC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    For the phone screen, I spoke with a person who is a curriculum designer of the same discipline I was applying for. She asked mostly about my experiences, why I would be a good fit, and a couple of situational questions. She said it would be a couple of weeks before I heard about the next steps, so based on these reviews, I assumed I didn't pass the phone screen. About an hour later, I got an email with the job test. I had a week to complete it.

    I felt the job test was an accurate task suited for the position, and I enjoyed working on it. I have experience working for a company that is a competitor, so I believe I was on the right track with my responses. Sure enough, about a week later, I got an automated email saying they were not pursuing me further. I've spoken with people in the EdTech field recently who have confirmed the rumors Glassdoor are true.
