    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by an in house recruiter. He walked me through the process and was extremely helpful in answering my questions and addressing my concerns.

    I then spoke with the hiring manager out of their Austin office. He gave me an overview of the company and we discussed the companies needs for the position. Overall it was a very positive and relaxed conversation.

    A week later I had a phone interview with a small group where we discussed my experience/skill sets and answered java specific questions. We went through a coding exercise where we worked on an optimization routine relevant to the companies domain.

    Lastly I was scheduled for an in person interview at their Phoenix offices. Travel was taken care of by the company and was painless for me. The interview process was several hours with multiple groups. Each group asked varying levels of questions about my experience, preferred work environments with a final longer technical interview where we whiteboarded several solutions (pseudo code and architecture/design). I was treated to a lunch with the team and had a chance to get to know them on a more personable level.

    The entire experience was enjoyable, exciting, and relaxed. I felt like I was being welcomed to a family!

    Interview Questions

    • General java data types, collections, service communication.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Austin, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was contact for an initial phone interview with a recruiter from RetailMeNot. That went well so I was immediately scheduled for a phone interview with a hiring manager. That went well also, so I was asked to come into the office the following week. I was living out of state, and RetailMeNot took care of all the arrangements to fly me down and have me stay in a hotel. After interviewing with members of the team, I traveled back home. The hospitality from RetailMeNot was outstanding, I felt very welcomed and everyone I interviewed with was super nice! I can see why it is a great place to work, because the people make it great!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    This was for a new grad position for graduating Spring 2017.
    I talked to the RetailMeNot engineers and recruiters at my school's career fair and was scheduled later that night for an on campus interview later that week. During this first interview I worked through some problems with two of their engineers and received good feedback. I was asked to do an onsite interview and was flown into Austin for a few days. The on site was the whole day and consisted of multiple technical interviews with the engineers, one with a VP, and one with an HR rep. I was able to answer all of the interview questions without too much difficulty, and enjoyed learning about the culture at RMN. Everyone seemed to be relaxed and enjoyed where they were. We had lunch and dinner as well with the other interviewees and some full time employees. Afterwards they gave us a google cardboard and some delicious cookies as a thank you.

    Unfortunately I received a call two weeks later that I would not be getting an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Seattle, WA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I got a call from a recruiter after the career fair. Set up my on-campus interview the next at my school. It went pretty well in my opinion. However, I never heard a single word from the recruiter since then. After a month, I emailed the recruiter and asked if there was any update from my interview. She sent me a reply a week or two after saying that I need to complete a coding challenge. I was really confused because she had told me on the day of my interview that the next step would be onsite. I lost interest immediately. The recruiting process was just too painful. To have me wait a month without any update and then told me that I have to do a coding challenge was just odd. I never received any update from my interview - whether I passed or didn't. Nothing. I was just dropped. Not a reject or offer. (But I had to choose one so I just selected no for the offer for glassdoor)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at RetailMeNot in September 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume at the career fair and got a call about two days later to come for an on-site interview. The interview itself was one-on-one; I was put in some hot, crummy room, which made me a little sick when I began to do the whiteboard coding questions.

    Also, after giving the whiteboard question, I asked the interviewer for some examples. One of his examples had the wrong answer, which tripped me up because I couldn't find a pattern to construct an algorithm. As a result, it took almost the whole interview for me to come up with a solution.
