    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Simply Hired (Sunnyvale, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process starts with a 30-45 technical screen with a member of the engineering team or an Lead. The Engineering lead I spoke to was very friendly and told me about the projects they work on and the team structure. After that your then given a coding exercise. The Eng lead gave me some hints here and there and I was able to solve the problem. I was told I'd hear from the recruiter for next steps.

    After that, I was immediately contacted by the recruiter for an onsite interview. In the onsite, I met with 3 engineers and again it was all technical questions. What stood apart for me was that everyone that I met, was personable. I've been on interviews where the engineering team have been rude and even arrogant. It's not the case at Simply Hired.

    After the first round, I was called back in for a final round to meet with the VP of Engineering, CEO, and Sr. Director of HR. I was nervous but I was asked basic questions on what I can contribute to the company and why I want to work here. (These interviews I wasn't asked to do any coding exercises.)

    After that, I heard from the recruiter that they would like to give me an offer. All in all, the process was faster than most other companies that I interviewed. I really just loved the energy of the Engineering team and the fact that everyone that I met seemed passionate about the work they do. I've been working here for a couple months now and I feel like the work I do here is meangingful!

    Sales Enablement Marketing Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Simply Hired (Sunnyvale, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    2 shorter phone interviews (~15 min.) that led up to 1 longer in-person interview (2 hours) where I met with the 3 people that I would be working with upon getting hired.

    Interview questions were relatively easy and straightforward; nothing came up that I hadn't prepared for by practicing my responses and by researching the people who would be interviewing.

    There was 1 skills test involved where I was put into a scenario that I would often face on the job. The test involved analyzing data, preparing the information into a PowerPoint and then giving a talking script to be used by a sales team individual.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Simply Hired (Sunnyvale, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    very low key, a single phone screen with a senior manager, and a five-person on-site interview; after the in-house recruiter told me they were interested, it took them three weeks to schedule the first telephone interview, which gave me a bad impression; however, once that was complete, the rest of the process moved fairly quickly.

    Interview Questions

    • easy questions related to web development; one was about reducing memory footprint in a key-value store   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Simply Hired (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online. A few email exchanges for the first phone screen. Afterwards I got called into their main office. Short tour after I arrived. During the in-person interview I met with all the team leads--it wasn't really a dialog and felt really rushed. The drill is this: Lead comes in, gives a short introduction, you give yours, then you get an algorithm question. It was a little frustrating because my experience had little to do with the interview content.

    Interview Questions

    • Just algorithm questions; bubble sort, time-tallying from a log file, substring/position matching (without using built-in functions)   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Simply Hired (Sunnyvale, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Dropped the resume and been contacted by their recruiter for a phone screen. The interviewer asked me two coding questions over the phone, which I solved pretty quickly. The screen finished in ~15 minutes. I thought I would be denied but I got an onsite. I met an engineer, the hiring manager, the director and their CEO in the morning. In the afternoon, they extended an offer to me, but the package is below what I expected.

    On site interview was delayed for an hour for a 2 hour time slot which they apologized profusely. One interviewer was late, rude, unprepared and seemed irritated that his morning was interrupted by an interview. Not everyone was like this.
