    Marketing HTML/Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Danville, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Trov (Danville, CA) in December 2019.

    Interview

    These were mostly phone or zoom interviews, taking place in rapid order. They started with an HR screening then moved on to the manager and team I would be working with. There were many interviews but all were short and closer to introductions. It took longer than expected but only because of a string of holidays toward the end of the year.

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Trov in September 2017.

    Interview

    Flow was Culture fit phone screen, technical phone screen then an onsite interview with 4 people.
    The devops team reported to the COO which was strange. I heard different things from each phase about what the job responsibilities were.
    Very advanced tooling and orchestration made a strong case for their team and stack. Very dynamic and open workflow.
    Didn't like that 100% of the development team was remote.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Trov in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back fairly quickly. I was asked to answer a couple questions via email, which I replied to quickly as well. A few days later, I was contacted to schedule an interview. I interviewed on Google Hangouts the following week and was told I should hear something back within a couple of weeks. It's now been over a month and I have not heard a single word. I've sent several emails and have yet to receive an answer to any of them. I'm willing to accept that I will not be offered the job, but I'm incredibly disappointed in the way this has been handled.

    Thank you for taking the time to post this review. I am sorry to hear that this has been your experience. One of our expectations in the recruiting process is timeliness and consistent communication. It appears neither were your experience and for that I apologize. We will definitely look into why this occurred. Thank you for considering Trov as a place you might have wanted to work.

    Application

    I interviewed at Trov in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process started with a 1 hour phone call with Team Lead. There were questions about clean architecture, previous projects and experiences. This was followed by a coding assignment. It had no deadlines. Once I submitted this, it was followed by two interviews both based on the coding assignment.
    The final call was with the Chief of Staff at the end of which the offer was extended.

    Web Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hammond, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Trov (Hammond, IN) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty standard; applied via online form, followed by initial tech screen, code exercise, follow-up tech screen and culture fit interview. Interview process took longer than expected (~2 months), but I don't think is representative of their process in general.

    Interview Questions

    • Surprisingly (and thankfully) the interview didn't really contain any "trivia" questions, more of a general discussion about front-end tech.   1 Answer

    Web Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Danville, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Trov (Danville, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    My interview process at Trōv was probably a bit unusual. I began talking to them in May 2017, when I had my initial Google Hangout interview. After that, I was given a take-home coding challenge. I was told that I could complete the challenge in any stack I wanted, so I built an app via the given prompt using Ruby on Rails. After I handed it in, I was told that I did a good job, but that none of the team really knew Rails that well, so I was asked to re-do the assignment using a JavaScript framework, such as React/Redux. At the time, I had no experience with JavaScript frameworks at all (I barely even knew JavaScript!). Therefore, I told them that I would need some time to ramp up on React. I took the entire summer to learn JavaScript, jQuery, and eventually React, and Redux, mostly utilizing online tutorials. Once I was confident in my JS abilities, I tackled the take-home challenge again using React and Redux. After I handed it in, the team said they were very impressed, and handed me back to the Technology Chief of Staff, who conducted my final interview, again via Google Hangout. The last interview was a bit technical but very conversational and pleasant overall. I was given a verbal offer at the end of that interview, which I accepted a week later.

    Thank you for sharing your experience. We definitely learned a lot from your experience and have tailored the coding challenge to specific code and not just anything the candidate wants to use. Thank you for your patience in this rather lengthy process. We are glad you decided to join the team!

    Server Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Danville, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Trov (Danville, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    1) Application - this had a lot more questions than what I'm accustomed to in an application, which I found initially offputting. As I progressed through the interview process, though, I appreciated having had the time to think about my answers and write my responses rather than having to improvise during an initial phone screen.
    2) Phone Call with Hiring Manager - This felt like a "get to know you" and "let us tell you about the company" call. I'm still not sure what they were evaluating at this stage.
    3) Take-Home Coding Exercise - They gave me an exercise to do at home and asked me for an estimate on when I'd finish it. I submitted a link to a repository with my code for them to look at after I was done with the exercise.
    4) Technical Interview via Video Call - There were two people interviewing me for about an hour. It felt like a pretty standard technical interview - there were some technical questions, I wrote code to answer them, etc. The thing that most stood out to me was that I had an opportunity to watch how two employees of the company interacted with each other. That was one of the best data points I've ever gotten in an interview about what a company is like to actually work at, which I thought was pretty neat.
