    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Prosper.com in September 2015.

    Interview

    This was for full-stack developer position. The first round was pretty good. The interviewer asked relevant questions related dynamic programming, ruby, middleware. He was respectful and answered any questions I had. The second round interview was with a senior software engineer who was rude when I was able to answer few questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Prosper.com (San Francisco, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    One telephonic technical interview 1 hour long, asked 2-3 coding q and a bunch of java core questions like garbage collection, type of exceptions, string manipulation question, they love questions related to the binary search tree.

     After 3-4 days I got a call for an onsite interview, 5 rounds 45 min each. The interview was pretty intense. In each round, at least 3-4 coding questions and REST APIs. A couple of SQL queries, make sure to prepare for REST APIs and SQL, it won't be written in the job description but this is really important for them.

    I did not find office culture very attractive but the location is great.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Prosper.com in February 2017.

    Interview

    After receiving a phone call with the recruiter, I got an online assessment on HackerRank. three medium level algorithm questions plus 5 technical selection question within 1 hours, that is insane, even phone interview with facebook or google, they will let you just finish at most 2 medium-difficulty algorithm questions. No feedback from the recruiter and I feel like I am just been used as a tester for their recuiter platform.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Prosper.com in February 2017.

    Interview

    Their recruiter is very unprofessional.

    Here is my experience:

    1. Cancel Phone screening 5 minutes in advance:
    After I submitted application, one recruiter sent an online question (hacker rank) to me. I passed and was contacted by the recruiter and scheduled an phone screening.
    On the day of phone screening, the recruiter called me 5 minutes before the scheduled time, told me that the phone screen is canceled. Then, I received an email asking me to complete another online test. But I was never given link for this new online test.

    2. Phone interview without any prior scheduling:
    A couple days later, I received an unexpected call and it is phone screening, which I was not given any notice of. I managed to complete it gracefully.

    3. Onsite interview canceled when you want to confirm the schedule with them:
    Another couple days later, the same recruiter approached me and asked whether I can come for onsite interview on a specific day. I said yes and the recruiter said great she would get back to me very soon, which never happen.

    Two days before the tentative interview date, I emailed the recruiter to confirm the onsite interview schedule. 10 Minutes later I received the rejection email.

    Interview

    Onsite interview was well organized - I met with five people at various levels of the hiring team, all very knowledgeable and enthused about their p2p lending business. Questions were all well thought out and relevant to the position I was applying for. I also liked how they used a combination of case study and brain teaser to assess my potential rather than technical questions only. I was given an offer after a little over a week of my interview. Overall it's been a great experience, but I had a better offer on hand so had to decline this one. Also to my surprise they've shown a great deal of transparency about the recent layoff. No dodging around my questions on that at all.

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter then with Hiring manager who was very confrontational. Company is looking to acquire borrowers via channels that make them better credit risks (say airline frequent flier) since apparently they don't trust their credit algorithms as much as publicly claimed. On the plus side HR was really fast in rejecting me after the hiring manager call, since I didn't even have time to write them that I no longer wanted the position.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Prosper.com (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The recruiter was extremely disorganized. The date of the interview changed numerous times, A response took longer to receive than they originally said, and finally I was given the wrong information about how the interview went. Most employees agreed the recruiters lied about the status of the company and even the benefits package.

    Interview

    Phone screen and then onsite. Phone screen was pretty easy. Onsite was scheduled for 3.5 hours but went until 4.5 hours leaving me very exhausted. The panel was technically strong. I liked their questions. I was surprised that the director also wanted to conduct a tech interview. I really wish the interviewers gave some breaks or checked if I needed drinks/snacks considering the fact that the interview was so long. I had to cancel other interviews since this one left me exhausted. Felt I wasted time/energy since I did not get offer anyways.
