    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Quixey.

    Interview

    Not truthful about compensation. Told me one thing in an email, then a lower rate when I got to the interview. Don't bother to tell candidates whether they've got the job after the interview and several phone calls assuring me I was a lead candidate. I assumed I didn't, as I never heard anything again. The manager's one objection to me after an hour-long interview was that I was too old. (I'm in my 40s.)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Quixey.

    Interview

    Phone screen, followed by a round of technical interview. The interview questions were a mixed bag comprising of fairly standard (mostly on the easier) questions, that had some kind of gotcha. I am afraid, if these questions provide enough signal in making a hiring decision. The staff were either reluctant to share or weren't sure of all the software stack involved. Maybe, I had a bad day but the staff did not seem very promising and lacked a sense of direction.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Quixey.

    Interview

    The phone interview was relatively easy but it was fun to do. The interviewer gave great positive feedback rightaway. The onsite interviews were scheduled very fast. The interviewers were fun to talk to. The problems ranged from relatively easy to pretty hard. The people seemed a little quirky but cheerful and accepting. The feedback after the interview was quite quick and positive. The recruiter was good to work with. I was made aware of the situaton and where the delay might come from and what to expect.

    Interview Questions

    • Shoudn't say but one of the difficult questions was pretty analytical in nature.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't have to negotiate much. I set expectations before the interview and they met my expectations.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Quixey (Mountain View, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume, I was sent a questionnaire to fill out. Once returned, I had a screening phone interview with the hiring manager. I was then called in for onsite interview with several people across the organization. They asked for 3 references and proceeded to request them to provide their input about me via e-mail or by phone. That led to the offer.
    Overall, a reasonable process.
