    Customer Success Associate - Spanish/Portuguese Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Needham, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TripAdvisor (Needham, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had a GREAT experience. I originally applied for a position in their Boston office. A rep from HR called and wanted to talk to me about that position and another one that she thought would be a good fit. I had a phone interview with the supervisor of the Customer Success Associate position in Hotel Solutions the next week and was invited to their office in Needham the following week. Upon arrival, the staff was really nice and welcoming. There was some confusion about where the interview would be so I was able to get a pretty good tour of the building. The interview had 3 parts. The first was with the team lead who offered honest opinions and feedback. The second was the supervisor. The third was with the head of a different team. The third interview was a mock phone call in Spanish which was nerve wrecking but the employee was really great and offered constructive feedback.

    Interview Questions

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TripAdvisor (Needham, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Had two phone interviews, one with HR and one with a Manager. All very nice and respectful people, showed lots of interest and made sure I was comfortable. I was then invited into the office and met with three people in the Finance Department. They asked fairly general questions about my experience and resume and were all engaged and made sure there was time for me to ask questions. Didn't end up getting the position but was very satisfied with the process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TripAdvisor (Needham, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through university. Was contacted by recruiter within a week, asking me about my background, and set up a telephonic interview with one of their engineers. This was followed by a take-home coding assignment which was supposed to handed in within 48 hours. The next day, they called to set up an on-site interview, which consisted of two technical rounds, and lunch with one of their new hires. I did well in the first technical on site, so the second one just kept grilling me until they deemed me not good enough.

    Interview Questions

    • HR screen: Tell me about a project; why TripAdvisor;
      Telephonic: Basic String/Tree/Array related questions
      Take home: Want to see how well you design the solution of a problem
      On site: Again, revise your fundamentals. medium-hard level problems   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TripAdvisor (Boston, MA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had a technical phone interview, followed by a coding challenge. For take home interview the question was pretty straight forward. Basic CS fundamental program on collab-edit. The phone screen also included some questions about OO and algorithms. The interviewer was very friendly and he explained the position to me in detail.

    The coding challenge was very interesting. I got 48 hours to work on it. I made sure that I wrote a very clean code, created README.md, wrote more than 14 test cases, Junit tests, noted my assumptions and provided them with the zip of all of these along with the source code. I did not receive any feedback on this up to 14 days. After that I got a reject. I was extremely disappointed that after so much of effort on writing a clean code, and submitting a solution professionally, I got a reject.
