    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sunrun (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Getting an Onsite Interview is pretty easy. The screens before that is just to make sure you're not crazy. Once you're there they are pretty standard questions. I would definitely know the technologies they use and what sunrun does and possibly how it differs from other solar companies.
    It was annoying that they would not tell me if I got an offer or not and kept on postponing telling me until I pressured them in to giving me some sort of update.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sunrun (San Francisco, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Phone call followed by onsite. The interview was from 10-2. They made no effort to provide lunch. I asked one interviewer about lunch and he (in front of me) asked the next interviewer to take me to lunch. Not only did she not take me to lunch, she asked me a really hard problem - epitome of a hostile interviewer - seems she did not like me from the start and made sure I wouldn't get the job on two counts (hunger and difficult problem). This was a good read on company culture.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sunrun (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    HR screen, followed by a same day technical phone screen. Onsite interview the next week was well organized and enjoyable. I had an assigned room, with a rotation of interviewers from various teams and roles. Everyone is friendly - not a hostile interviewer in the bunch. I did get thrown off by a few questions on technologies I haven't worked on, but most of the questions were softballs for any experienced developer.
