    Social Media Data Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Overstock.com (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn and was contacted a couple of weeks later for an interview using HireView. HireView is not a person-to-person interview process, but rather you record your own answers and they are sent for review. They allow about 2 weeks of time to complete the HireView process. After I submitted my interview questions, I was contacted a couple of weeks later with my response. I did not directly talk to anyone during the whole interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Overstock.com (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    It was telephonic followed by face to face. Company provides flight ticket, hotel and pick and drop from airport. Most of the people taking interview asked good questions and seemed neutral, however one or two technical person with hiring decision might be biased, preferring people who speak their language/nepotism etc. . Else I see no other reason for not getting offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Overstock.com in August 2019.

    Interview

    Referred by a friend, phone screen went well. Brought in for multiple hours/rounds of interviews. Grilled on random questions by members of the team - do this advanced algebra with factorials, calculate mortgage payments by hand, how many gas stations are in the US, etc. Wanted to walk out when I was being lit up while trying to calculate mortgage payments. This was the dumbest interview I have ever been a part of. Never heard back from anyone after my interviews. Glad I didn't get hired - looks like Overstock has gone to crap.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Overstock.com (Salt Lake City, UT) in June 2019.

    Interview

    It's employee referral. One phone interview and then they will call you for face to face interview with their expenses.
    In phone interview they asked basic Java questions like - What is object reference and why it is important in java? Why string is special in Java. About threads, how to create it. Some spring questions and most of them are hibernate related questions.

    Next day HR called for face to face interview and they book flight & hotel for 1 day, they almost spend $800.

    In onsite interview - first round is about testing your designing skills.

    In second round - they asked algorithms.

    Then they will take you for lunch in their cafeteria.

    Then its formal manage round - it is not technical. Then HR will take you for the office tour.

    Front End Developer II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Overstock.com (Midvale, UT) in June 2019.

    Interview

    They first sent an online coding test, which was a good challenge and not too time consumptive. Then a phone screen was conducted. In person interview followed and I got to meet the project I would be working on's dev team and then a separate interview immediately after with the project manager (seemed like a very cool team). The questions were average difficulty and I felt like they gauged my skills pretty well. I received a very good offer that was much more than I asked for, but unfortunately had to decline for personal reasons. Overall I was very pleased with the process and would definitely re explore options here in the future.
