    Junior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spokeo (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screen with a recruiter, then a call with a senior PM. I then flew to LA for the final round interview. I had 3 interviews with different PMs, and then met the founders. I was told Spokeo would follow up within a week, and the recruiter never got back to me. After learning more about the company and meeting team members, I wasn't very interested in the culture or the company, but I still think it says a lot about a company to not bother to follow up with a candidate after flying them out for an interview. Very happy I did not end up at Spokeo!

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spokeo (Pasadena, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The entire process took 2 weeks.(Actually more than 2 weeks but there was Thanksgiving in the middle). I would say the entire process was a little rugged but the final result is quite pleased for both me and the company.

    I applied online and get email from HR in a few days. The first phone screen happened next day and I chatted with HR about my background, experience and a few basic technical questions. Since everything went well so we scheduled the next technical phone interview really quick.

    The second phone interview was the one that made things a little rugged. 1) Scheduling error happened at the company site then we rescheduled it. 2) The day I was supposed to have technical phone interview, I got a "rejected email" from company, which turned out to be a mistake message because I applied multiple positions. I was not quiet prepared when the senior engineer called me, but things still went well so I got an on-site interview.

    The rest was smooth. I met three groups of interviewers and they are so nice. I found the interviewers not only wanted to test my ability but also attempted to find out whether I am a good fit in the team. Asked questions are basic and on-topic which every qualified web developer should know.

    They granted me an offer next day, which was really quicker than I expected. By the way, the HR (Devin in my case) is a super cool and nice guy, he always get me response really quick with clear explanations. He can also pronounce my name like a Chinese guy, which really surprised me.

    No negotiation. I can hardly demand more from their offer.

    Interview

    Applied online and got an email responses within a week to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was with HR which consisted of a quick explanation of my background in software and brief technical questions. HR said they'd schedule another interview for me with one of their teams, but I later got a rejection email instead.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Spokeo (Pasadena, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    They had to reschedule the phone interview 2 times (after missing both). When they finally did end up calling they gave a brief overview of the company and asked some basic questions (what is a Hash table, difference between a Stack and a Queue, how to search for a phone number in some data). Then I asked some questions and they said they would be in contact.

    I waited a week and followed up and they said they were busy changing offices and would tell me if they wanted to move forward later (wtf). Then after another week I tried to follow up again and they said they didn't want to move forward based off technical questions (which, not to sound cocky, I know I answered correctly). Perhaps the experience was poor because I had to keep going through an outside recruiter but I found this pretty frustrating.

    There were 3 interviews. The first phone interview was mostly behavior and some general questions. The second phone interview was more technical with some basic questions. The last one was an onsite interview that last about 3 hours. The first part of the interview was mostly about front end development and second part was mostly algorithms.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spokeo (Pasadena, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Had a phone screen then they flew me out for an onsite. They gave me a rental car and initially told me the wrong address and time for the interview, so it was kind of a disaster since I was inexperienced with driving around in L.A. (especially with no GPS). When I finally got to the interview the place seemed really nice, lots of friendly people and they even gave me free lunch. During the tech interview I thought I did well on most of the questions, I struggled a bit on one but eventually got it. Afterwards I flew home and a few days later I got a generic rejection email. No feedback or anything at all. I assumed someone did better in the interviews and got the position based on the recent interviews posted here, but it really would have been nice to actually get feedback on why I was not selected.
