    Platform Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ontario, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wattpad (Ontario, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    A single phone call where I was asked specific questions about GoLang and very basic algorithms (iteration and loops). No questions were asked about my personality. All in all, it was really brief and they're probably pretty desperate for employees.

    Interview Questions

    • Create a loop in GoLang that does some function.   2 Answers

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wattpad (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Initial HR screening followed by a take-home test, and if all goes well an on-site interview. I didn't pass the take-home test round. Overall the HR was very professional and the engineer who reviewed my take-home test seemed to have put a lot of thought into it.

    Interview Questions

    • The take-home test was a very straightforward question which can be written in any language. I decided to write in golang.   1 Answer

    Data Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Wattpad (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got called in for an in person interview after 4 weeks. The interviewers mainly asked me about my experience, and they cared a lot about the SQL skills. They also asked what sort of databases I have used before. In addition, they gave some soft skills related questions, such as how do you present your data insight result when you know your superior is wrong. Just a heads up, the position is advertised as data analyst and says they do clustering, statistical analysis, but from the interview I think it's more focused on using SQL for business intelligence report.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you approach using SQL for a complex query?   1 Answer

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wattpad.

    Interview

    HR is slow, and unprofessional. Does not respond on the date she scheduled herself. It almost feels that they are delaying(prolonging) the whole process on purpose for some reason. Your time is not valued and respected.
