    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at MeridianLink (Costa Mesa, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a reply within a day asking some general questions. I replied to those and then was sent another email the following day to take a basic troubleshooting timed test along with a Wonderlic test. Took that test on a Friday and was emailed back on Monday for a time for a phone interview with the Recruiting Manager. After an hour discussion of my skills and what the skills are needed for the job, I came to the conclusion that those did not align.

    Overall the process was VERY professional and positive.

    Software Customer Service Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MeridianLink (Costa Mesa, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    There was one 1-hour phone interview and another 3-hour in person interview. The phone interview consisted of basic questions going over academic history, interests, qualifications, and a 30-minute troubleshooting scenario. In the troubleshooting scenario I had to diagnose a client's printer issue over the phone. The in person interview was similar but with more focus on technical skills, first I was given two tasks in excel: the first being to format various cells based on their cell-value and the second task was to access data from a closed excel workbook without opening the file. After these tasks there was another troubleshooting scenario in which I had to diagnose a client who was having trouble sending an email. Finally, I was grilled pretty hard on my transcript and academic history, so be prepared for a discussion about any transcripts (High School and University) as well as SAT scores.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at MeridianLink (Costa Mesa, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It took a month and a half. Although I applied for a software engineering position they asked me to consider software support instead. I wrote them an essay answering a question about the challenges I faced and what I learned from it. Then had a phone interview while they asked me to trouble shoot a cellphone that the user had no experience with it before. In person interview took about 4 hours. My suggestion is to learn HLOOK and VLOOK from excel.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MeridianLink (Costa Mesa, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Starts with an e-mail exchange, then an assessment test and if you pass that you are scheduled for a phone interview. After a successful phone interview, you will then be scheduled for an on-site interview. I talked with a manager and a software engineer about the position, company and my experience. After talking, you are asked to take a test and then the on-site interview is done. Unfortunately, I did not get an offer. Hope this helps and good luck.

    Software Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MeridianLink (Costa Mesa, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    1. The first step, you need to answer a technical coding question online. You are allowed 1 hour to do it. This should not be difficult as along as you have some programming experience before.

    2. If you do well in the coding question, the next step is a phone interview with hiring manger. To be honest, it was the worst interview I have ever had. First, the interviewer called me half a hour late than the scheduled time. Second, the interviewer just went over a list of questions he prepared. I believed the interviewer was not a software engineer or developer because whenever my answer to the questions were not exactly the same as the answer he had on his paper, he would sound unhappy. For some questions he asked, I was very sure I provided the correct answers. However, I felt he disagreed with my answers. So, I asked him what were the right answers. He told me I should find out after the interview. Before the interview ended, I attempted to clarify a few answers to the questions he asked. He seemed not patient at all and stopped me again and again. Right after the interview, I searched the questions he asked me and discussed with my friends almost all the questions he asked which turned out most of my answers were correct. I applied the job position because I was very interested in it. However, the interviewer really disappointed me. Not everyone will memorize the answers from wikipedia if that is how the interviewer checks the correctness of the questions he asks. The only thing I feel good about the interview process was that the HR was nice and response quickly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MeridianLink (Costa Mesa, CA).

    Interview

    The whole process took quite some time, I applied around early June as a recent graduate. I received an email about 2 weeks after requesting my transcripts. About a week after that I received another email a week later asking me to do an online assessment, it was just a cognitive abilities test. Sometime after that I received an email scheduling a phone interview, the phone interview itself was very simple and short. The interviewer just asked questions about my resume and asked to me answer situational questions about working with clients. It only lasted about 20 minutes. After I received an email, scheduling an in person interview. The in person interview lasted about an hour, the interviewer asked me to go through every bad grade on my transcript, and give an explanation as to why it happened. They saw I had some programming experience, so they asked my to do some minor coding in HTML and CSS. They also spent time describing the company and position.
