    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Quantcast.

    Interview

    The phone interview I had with the recruiter was a bit strange. It seemed like she was not listening to me, in fact, in seemed that she did not review my resume before talking with me.

    At least I received a rejection email versus never hearing back.

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Quantcast.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from a Recruiter in San Francisco about a month later. We scheduled a quick phone screening. She was very nice and professional - although, they ended up saying they only wanted the hire individuals with experience in the ad tech space. Not sure why she scheduled interviews with candidates who don't have a background in this space if they're not willing to give them a chance. Overall, it was a positive experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quantcast.

    Interview

    The first step in the process is a 3+ hour technical challenge. I personally don't like these challenges because they are timely and usually in the end, they don't give any feedback. I think it's just a way to weed out people. I rather do a short phone interview then an onsite.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Quantcast (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Summary - I was targeted and courted by their recruiting team. I was rejected because I don't have the "background/experience they are looking for". I wouldn't recommend this company to my friends because of my interview experience there.

    The initial recruiting process was pretty well thought-out: I was invited to a big event with dozens of people. A while later, without me following up, I was asked to attend a smaller event with fewer prospects. The recruiters are nice, efficient and professional. I have nothing but admiration for them.

    After the second event, there wasn't a phone screen, just an invitation to onsite. On that day, I thought everything went really well until I was interviewed by a manager in their SF office.

    I was given an "open question" where there is no "bad answers". It turns out that was a large project that the manager worked on in a previous job. And it was anything but "open": every assumption, alternative I put on the table was quickly dismissed. Among the few left standing, one was meant for me to prove it wrong myself.

    I have been given those types of questions before but never felt so entrapped. I don't think the interviewer meant it. Nonetheless, I'd say, if you don't want to work with someone, day in and day out, who has superiority complex, do not accept their invitation.
