    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at New Relic.

    Interview

    - screen by recruiter
    - one hour screen by manager. Here we spoke about expectations on the take home. Manager said it is expected to turn it around within a couple days and in Java. I mentioned I hadn’t done Java and I’m concerned. He said it’s no big deal and I’ll still breeze right through the take home.
    - take home. Did not breeze through. Had to acquaint myself with locks, sockets, and lower level Java apis. Did not get any feedback on project aside from that it didn’t run to meet exact runtime expectations.

    Did a similar type project in a language I’m familiar with for a different company and got called back. Lesson learned- don’t agree to learn and do any complex take home project in a language you haven’t touched before. I read on here that someone else had run into the same thing and didn’t heed the review so I hope this review helps anyone that’s just not familiar with Java or whatever your hiring team uses.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at New Relic.

    Interview

    Fine - could have been better but ok. They moved very slowly which was annoying as I had other offers. The company seems to have a lot of change in management lately which scared me a bit as well.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at New Relic (Portland, OR) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Call with recruiter, 1 hour call with hiring manager, take home coding challenge (~3 hours), 7 hour video call interview with team including a few more tech/coding challenges. Overall it was a great experience. The process was quick which was great because I was interviewing at multiple companies. The 7 hour team interview was probably the best interview experience I've ever had. The team was warm and welcoming and made me feel at ease which allowed me to truly showcase myself and my capabilities!

    Senior Technical Trainer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at New Relic (Portland, OR) in April 2020.

    Interview

    This was an overall positive, very thorough, very well organized process! End to end, this process took just over 4 weeks from the first phone screen.

    1. First, I applied, actually for a different position, but that position was under the same hiring manager. I was contacted by a senior technical recruiter via phone to learn more about me and my interest in the company, who asked if I would be interested in this position as well. We had a great conversation, I was asked some questions about my experience, but mostly just learned about the culture, etc. The recruiter was very easy to talk to and very knowledgable.
    2. Next, I had a BlueJeans video interview with the hiring manager. He asked me questions about my experience, asked me about my interest in the company, and took the time to explain both roles to me. It was very nice to hear more about the organization and how these 2 roles I was interviewing for fit into the organization.
    3. I was asked to complete an assignment for the Senior Training position. The assignment was given on a Thursday and I was asked to return on the following Tuesday. I was also asked if this was enough time (how courteous!)
    4. I returned my assignment. Then, I was asked to complete another interview with several people on the hiring committee for the Senior Training position. This interview was scheduled for 9am-12pm. The interview began with my presentation, which was a presentation of the training assignment. Then I met with pairs of interviewers and was asked many behavioral style questions.
    5. Finally, I was contacted by the recruiter and told I was the top candidate for the Senior Trainer position and needed to complete one more interview, with the VP of the department I would be joining.
    6. I completed the interview with the VP and shortly after this BlueJeans video interview, I was called and verbally offered the job, which followed with a written offer.
