    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sumo Logic (Redwood City, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    2 phone screens followed by one on-campus interview with multiple technical people. Recruiters were phenomenally efficient and accommodating, and the technical folks were great as well! Overall, the process was a pleasure, though certainly quite challenging technically.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sumo Logic (San Francisco, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Two easy rounds went perfect. After the second round got a generic resume reject email. The process is highly disorganized. Both rounds were on coderpad. Duration 1 hour. 20 minutes discussion.

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sumo Logic (Redwood City, CA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Interview was pretty standard-phone screens with recruiter and hiring manager and then they bring you onsite to meet a few of the team. There were three separate on-sites which were pretty inefficient and could be cut down to two. It made the interview process a lot longer than it needs to be. My biggest issue is that my last interviewer for the THIRD round was double booked and cut the interview short by 15 minutes (30 vs 45) for the last round--just basically disregarded my part of the interview to ask questions and left a bad taste in my mouth. Your interviewers prepare and wait weeks in between rounds, you'd think he'd have the decency to be respectful of time allotted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sumo Logic.

    Interview

    I came in for a series of interviews. I interviewed with five different people. Each interview was about 30 minutes. Each interview was different and not receptive like most are. Each interview was also a culture fit test. When I was interviewing, there wasn't a thousand questions being asked of me. I was more of a comfortable flowing conversation. Less like an interview and more like a friendly conversation. I received "the call" the next day. I started the following week. The entire process was smooth and pleasant.
