    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NextRoll (San Francisco, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Sent an email to the recruiter who responded quickly. We arranged an interview with an engineer over skype, and I was asked questions about my side-projects. Afterwards I was asked two technical questions. The entire interview lasted for one hour. That's all there is in the interview for interns, short and quick.

    Interview

    Initial call with recruiter. Then a coderpad challenge. 1 Skype call with remote folks and finally on site interviews. On site consisted of white boarding and also coding on laptop. Overall, all the people seem pleasant and passionate about their work. Of course, all of them were very bright. My experience was positive although I didn't get offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NextRoll (San Francisco, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Very straightforward - screening with recruiter, then onsite with team. They really made an effort to get to know me as a candidate and what I would bring to the team with thoughtful questions and prompts. They clearly care about culture and fit and it shows in their employees and interview process.

    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NextRoll (San Francisco, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I was refferred internally from a recruiting event but also reached out to one of the exec managers through linkedin. We set up a phone call to discuss my background, the position, and direction and needs of the company. It was a pretty standard screen call and I was told they would be in touch. I was contacted approx 3 weeks later for an in-person interview at the office where I would meet with the executive management team (CEO/founder and Head of Accounts/Co-founder). This second interview lasted about 2 hours. I was asked to send writing and creative samples and did so the following business day. I was invited back to the office for a third round with two other members of the management team (CFO and Dir. of Product) where I spent approx another 2 hours in interviews. After assuming that I was in the running as a top candidate for the position, I waited approx 1 week to follow up on a decision. I was told that they would know in another week. I was never responded to the next week and was left confused. After leaving voicemails and sending emails, I was responded to approx 3 weeks later via email that I would not be a final candidate at this time. I found this unprofessional and the most dissapointing part of the process as I had other opportunities I was interviewing for and ultimately missed out on waiting for them to respond.

    Everyone at the company seems like smart, good people but they are still a start up and may not know exactly what they are looking for in this position (Online marketing manager? MarCom/PR?). They are growing rapidly and possibly may be moving to another office space which are all good signs. The office seemed typical of a SF start up stocked with snacks, games, and a beer on-tap. They seemed to mostly have male employees in most positions but appeared to have a good working culture.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at NextRoll in May 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email for a phone interview within a week. However, the entire phone call was finished within 4 minutes - including my own questions for them - and gave me the feeling the interviewers were only going through the motions of holding an interview. Couldn't even catch their names, and wasn't told their roles or anything about the company/position. They launched straight into questions after I picked up the phone, and asked exactly 4 questions:
    1. Tell me about yourself.
    2. Explain what we do in a sentence or two.
    3. What is retargeting?
    4. Do you have any questions?

    Interview Questions

    • What is retargeting? (apparently they didn't want a literal explanation of what retargeting is?)   Answer Question
