    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wealthfront.

    Interview

    Onsite was hard leetcodes, and a chat with a hiring manager plus vp. One of the questions required a clever trick, but it’s one of those you see it or you don’t kind of gotchas. Didn’t really like that question. One interviewer was very nice and enthusiastic about the work, and also took time to explain what Wealthfront was working on in detail. Would definitely want to work with him if our paths ever cross. The other interviewer just seemed pretty out of it. Didn’t get the sense she really liked her job.

    Interview

    Great Interview Process, extremely unique and different. Had a awesome conversation with the VP of Engineering. Afterwards an 2.5 hour long interview with engineers. Disappointed with the end result, because the company fits my interest profile.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wealthfront (Palo Alto, CA) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Chatted with recruiter on the phone first - recruiter was super knowledgeable and friendly. Because I had another pending offer, company sped up the process and everything was done within a week. Had a technical phone screen with some theory and algorithm questions and then a full-day onsite - all pretty standard process.

    Interview

    I applied to the position on their website. I received a code challenge after 7 days.
    The code challenge has 2 tasks, the first one is very easy, and the second one is medium.
    Java was the only language that you are allowed to write code in.

    I highly recommend that start with the second task, keep the first task to the end.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wealthfront (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    - Phone screen (1hr)
    - On-site (4hrs)

    The phone screen was IMO the hardest technical question. There were two more onsite technical questions which were pretty easy. I was nervous the first hour on my on site and didn’t do well on the first question :-/ oh well.
    Everyone was friendly, charismatic, and would’ve been a dream job for me!
    If you’re a false-negative like myself, then please please practice mock interviews and make sure you’re not nervous! This is a legit company to work for and you don’t want to ruin your chances like I did :-)

    Interview Questions

      The questions were simple, and relatable to rl coding. No fancy graph questions, and make sure you know your JS fundamentals well!   1 Answer
