Easy Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at New York Times in Jul 2022

Interview

Interview process is super easy (coding part at least), but the people who does the technical leads in the interview are bad at what they do, repeated questions in multiple rounds. No offer at the EOD and even I would have rejected after the interview process

Interview

While waiting the last round of interview, they said the position has been filled. It's not fair to cancel the last round of interview and hire someone else. People make sacrifices and transfer their time and knowledge in this process. You should show some respect to applicants.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at New York Times

Interview

Everyone was really nice and transparent. Three rounds of interviews. One with HR, one with the hiring manager, and one that's a mega day of back-to-back interviews with various team members. The first two rounds were great but the third round seemed disorganized. I found myself being asked many of the same questions by multiple interviewers and repeating myself many times and it would get very tedious.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about yourself Tell me about a time when you received pushback for a project How do you work on a team?

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at New York Times in Apr 2022

Interview

I was ghosted by the recruiter, despite giving them a great deal of my time, and getting positive feedback in the interview process. After my final interview, no one contacted me to let me know the outcome. There was a fair amount of arrogance, and conceited behavior. It was Multi-day, Multi-hour interview process. Three Technical interviews, behavioral, algo and Systems design. Technical interview was easy/med difficulty code exercises, like from Leet Code, systems design was an open discussion - they asked me how i'd design an app like Medium.

Interview Questions
  • How would you design an app like Medium.

It was a 6 interview process. Mostly behavioral questions, and at the end, with the Head of Industry, which seemed she wanted to have a casual conversation. Terrible, because they said they'd reach out and just ghosted me even after the follow ups.

  • Why the times? Why sales? Tell me about a time you had a rough time with a client and how you managed it at the end Tell me about a time you had to be creative with a project
