    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process at RetailMeNot was amazing! I applied online after seeing a job posting on the corporate site. I was contacted by a recruiter a couple days later to set up a phone interview. We discussed my background and the basic responsibilities of the position. The recruiter was very well-versed in everything RetailMeNot and made me feel very comfortable about moving forward. After this call, I was asked to speak directly with the hiring manager via phone. The call lasted approximately 30 minutes and was very conversational. I dove a little deeper into my background and experience. The hiring manager seemed generally interested in what I had to say. Following this call, I was asked to come in for a half-day of 1-on-1 interviews with members of the RetailMeNot team. While this may seem daunting, the time actually went by very quick. I met with about 5 people, including the hiring manager whom I had spoken to a couple days prior. Each employee was deeply passionate for RetailMeNot and what I had to offer the company. I can't say enough about how nice everyone was. Following the half day of interviews, I was given a tour of the office (the campus is super cool btw). I was told they would be following up with me regarding next steps. And they actually did! They called a couple days later with an offer. After a little negotiation, I signed on the dotted line. When you combine the top-notch perks/benefits with people that are truly passionate about what they do, it's a win-win. Thank you RetailMeNot for a great recruiting experience and best of luck to those interested in applying!

Now that we've grown into a more mature company, it's harder to make a 'big splash', but generally if you're hired and you're doing well, after about 1-2 years you'll start to take on more and more responsibilities, and from there you can only go up - but it's essential that you seek them out and not get discouraged, and you take that first 1-2 years seriously...it's almost a litmus test. But once you get that first promotion, the doors start opening wider. Also, Networking and building a positive reputation, as cliche as it is, really helps. Everyone knows everyone in a company of 350 (350 in TX at least). Friendly atmosphere, and people who are really trying to do well. Work life balance is excellent. Good culture and values, supported by personal beliefs.” – Full Review
