    Software Engineer New Grad Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Step 1: Coding Assignment

    Step 2: First Interview -- this was a phone call, and not too difficult -- it's to see how well you logically solve through a problem.

    Step 3: Second Interview -- this was another phone call, and a much harder data structures question. I am not sure how I answered, but it was definitely dynamic programming. Practice with Leetcode or Cracking the Coding Interview.

    Step 4: On-site Interview -- they fly you out to Seattle, unless you live there. Several interviews are conducted to see if you fit in the role you are specifically applying for.

    Overall, they are very transparent throughout the process and flexible around your time schedule.

    Interview Questions

    • Array Hopper, Dynamic Programming question, String question, HTML/CSS & JavaScript assignment, and Fullstack Drawing Board Question.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whitepages in June 2017.

    Interview

    I am very let down by the process. I applied online and got a response 2-3 business days later with a link to a Hacker Rank challenge that everyone else in the Glassdoor reviews has been talking about. The important part here is that I got a response mid-week. I haven't had time to do the coding challenge during the week so I had to push it off till the weekend. During the weekend I diligently spent 4 hours doing the coding challenge. Even though I roughly knew what to expect, there were a few curveballs in there. Biggest one of them actually being the HackerRank interface - that thing is a pain to work with. Setting up the I/O for the problem alone took me 20 mins of googling. Long story short is that I persevered and nailed the question. Two business days later I get a generic template email saying that the position has been filled and that they won't be moving forward with the process.

    Think about this for a second - if they filled the role two business days after I submitted the coding challenge, that must mean that they have already extended an offer to someone when I applied and was sent the coding challenge. They were already waiting on a candidate to agree to their offer while still piping more people into their recruiting funnel. I get that the companies always want to keep their funnels moving but in this particular situation, I feel particularly screwed over. They did say that they will reach out "if a new candidacy opens" but I doubt that means skipping the coding challenge and going straight into on-sites etc. Plus how often does the timing of those things actually work out?

    My advice to Whitepages - be more organized and don’t place applicants in the funnel when you are already waiting for someone to sign an offer for the same position. I personally do not see that as professional and to me it is a sign of a disorganized recruiter / organization. Additionally, over-communicating is always better than treating your applicants with generic template emails, especially when it’s really, really obvious that you messed up.

    Thanks for wasting my weekend night Whitepages. Applicant beware.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whitepages.

    Interview

    Received a coding challenge through HackerRank. I made sure I passed all the test cases and checked against a lot of custom test cases as well just to be sure that I had handled everything and the code was working perfect, very efficiently. But received a reject in just 2 hours saying it did not pass all the test cases. I am pretty sure that was not the reason. I had checked against all the test case there could possibly be and the code ran just fine.
     So if you guys are not serious about hiring - please do not waste the candidate's time by sending online coding challenges.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was smooth and very informative. It begins with a phone conversation with a recruiting coordinator to discuss Whitepages and the available position. The second interview is over the phone with the hiring manager, where you learn more about the team and how your background may suit the position's requirements. Finally, there is an onsite interview loop that takes up most of the day. During the onsite interview, there is a sales exercise that you have a day prior to prepare. Ultimately, every interviewer is professional and friendly. I heard back in a timely manner after the interview process concluded. Great job to the Whitepages recruiting team for making this an amazing experience!

    I applied online, the recruiter reached out within two weeks and we had a phone screen that was mostly conversational and informational. Then I didn't hear from them for about two weeks, then we scheduled a 45 minute screen with the hiring manager. After that, they scheduled me for an in-person half-day loop + a presentation. Overall, the process took about a month.

    Fraud Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    One of the better interview processes I've been through. My recruiter, Connor, was great- super responsive, hospitable and timely. Office downtown is beautiful. 16th floor and a really modern office- open layout, snacks, beverages.

    They bought me lunch for my interview considering I was there from Noon to 5pm. Met with head of operations, head of finance, manager and team members. Everyone was incredibly welcoming and was more of a good discussion rather than "tell me about a time xyz happened". Talked a lot of the business and how the fraud team is a newer addition to the company and different challenges that comes with. Seems like a really great and collaborative company. Relatively quick decision process. Interviewed on a Monday, heard back on Wednesday or Thursday.

    Interview Questions

    • What are things you look for when looking for fraud?   Answer Question
    • Role playing- had me look at various transactions and give my best guess (with the knowledge I had of the company) of which were fraudulent transactions and why I thought so.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer New Grad Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whitepages (New York, NY).

    Interview

    did not get past the initial coding screening. the real interviews were after the screening. was generally ashamed that I didn't get past the initial screening. From scouring their website, it really does seem like a great place to work at. I had seen the question on leetcode and passed all the leetcode test cases. I used very similar code from code I used on leetcode, so I was naturally confident, but I guess they had some edge cases I had forgotten to check for. Other companies I've applied for have directly told me where I went wrong, so the generic rejection letter they replied with kinda irked me a bit.
