    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Major League Baseball (MLB) (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Was reached out to by a recruiter for multimedia engineering.

    Had a recruiter phone screen where he told me about the role and asked me about my background.

    A few days later I was set up for a technical screen. Not to bad, mostly data structures and a coding question or two.

    I was brought onsite and the process was fairly seamless.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Major League Baseball (MLB) (San Francisco, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online for the SF office and got an email from recruiter a few days later. I live about 2 hours away so she let me know up front there was no relocation package available. Phone conversation with her went well, she was very pleasant. Scheduled a phone interview with a senior developer, was asked core Java, Oracle questions. About a week later, onsite interview, 3 separate one on ones with developers, short coding exercises in Java on pass by value and recursion. I was asked questions about databases, did some whiteboard coding, asked to create a database connection. A week later, I'm emailed about setting up a time to talk to the hiring manager. In the phone call with him, he said they would be extending an offer and asked how much I wanted. I told him a number and he said he could get me to that and it might be a little less, and names his number. Then he goes on a long explanation about how I shouldn't split hairs over money because this would be a really great opportunity for me. I asked if they would offer any signing bonus since there was no relocation assistance and he responds "well you're not that good". A few days later, another recruiter contacts me out of NY, asks how much I want and goes through standard HR questions. I tell her the same number that I told the hiring manager. Another week later, she calls me up and says we have an offer for you, and it's (less than what hiring manager told me he could get me). I told her I had a conversation with the hiring manager and he had named a number which was higher, her response is "oh he told me this was what you wanted". I reminded her of our conversation and said I had told him the exact same number. The next day they send the official offer letter over, I respond saying I will move forward if they give me what he had previously suggested. At this point she responds almost immediately saying that my offer had been rescinded.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Major League Baseball (MLB) (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Around 1 hour long technical screen sharing interview followed by a 4 hour on site visit to NY. Sounds like an interesting position and a smart, friendly team. However, the interviews were poorly planned and communication afterwards was truly terrible. That kinda ruined an otherwise nice interview experience.

    Interview Questions

    • I would recommend studying OO design, scaling, databases lite, and to be prepared to discuss your philosophy on testing.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Major League Baseball (MLB) (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    One day, about 3 hours, met with 4-5 people. Each person had their own questions. Wasn't really any code testing, mostly just conversational about my experience and my career goals. Each person was from a different team.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Major League Baseball (MLB).

    Interview

    Standard interview process. Initial recruiter call, followed by a technical phone screen and culminating with several onsite interviews. You'll meet with other engineers and managers of teams that are interested in hiring you.

    The engineers there were are friendly and seemed collaborative.

    The negative experience comes from the recruiting team, the recruiter made an effort to emphasize that decisions and responses were made within a business day. However, in actuality, I never got any feedback

Then I was invited for an onsite interview which consisted of 4 hour long interviews, each with 2 people from the engineering team. The questions were a mix of technical questions and talking about projects, experience, etc. The people I interviewed with were all pretty friendly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Major League Baseball (MLB) (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The first step was a phone screen where I had to write Java and Javascript via Collabedit. The next step was a 5 hour interview, meeting with 2-3 people at a time for 1 hour each. The whiteboarding was generally high-level, and I wasn't asked many highly technical questions (aside from some Javascript syntax problems).

    I was told I should receive a response within 48 hours, when in reality, it took more like 5 days. It also took multiple emails and voicemails to get a response. I had offers from other companies on the table, so I did not appreciate being left in the dark.
