    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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whitepages.

    Interview

    Really quick and seamless process. I was contacted by the recruiter via Linkedin. We got coffee and chatted about that role and in the same week, I came in for my onsite interview.

    For the onsite interview, I had to prepare an exercise that they sent over the day before - I really appreciated this part because I was able to get a peek into the day in the life of an RC and the responsibilities they have. I had several rounds of interviews with people on the team I'd be working with, presented my exercise, and met with the recruiter at the end. Everyone was friendly and I was able to get a good sense of the culture that exists here.

    Received an offer early the following week. The recruiter was in constant contact with me, providing me updates as they occurred so I appreciated the transparency.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Whitepages.

    Interview

    Hackerrank and recruiter call-- My advice, don't bother wasting your time on the test. Its a hard problem and doesn't matter if you answered right, they'll reject you if you're not based in Seattle.

    I'm not sure what prompted the rejection based on a pretty standard(going over resume and what I'd like to do) recruiter call.

    Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Whitepages (Seattle, WA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    One Phone Interview with HR ( background, role and how you would fit in). HR was pretty cool.

    Second video Call ( hiring manager)

    My experience with Hiring manager was not good. He seemed to be very arrogant with his reply. I might not know what you have asked but be humble, don't show wrong attitude. I feel blessed not to get hired here. I applied coz ppl working at WP has great reviews. but my interview exp was aweful. Instead of open discussion I felt as if interview id more boasting about his knowledge in front of me.

    I applied through my school's career fair. A few days later, they sent me a code challenge . it was like the jump game, so it wasn't too bad. I used a greedy algorithm to solve it but they said my solution didn't need their expectation, so I don't know what was wrong with it.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Was very excited to interview with them especially after seeing such high ratings and good reviews on Glassdoor. Unfortunately my experience with them was horrible:

    - took almost two weeks of emailing to schedule an initial phone screen (very slow response)
    - on the day of the phone screen, HR texts me 10 mins after our call was supposed to start to say that she's stuck in a meeting and can't make it. asked to reschedule but never heard back
    - received an automated email the next day saying the position is closed
    - wrote a thank you email to them and they responded saying position is open again (wtf?)
    - scheduled a call, actually got on a call this time. call went well for 30 mins until literally the last question she had to ask: do you require sponsorship?
    - I answered that I did and the interview ended there. No where on the job listing or application did say that they wouldn't sponsor for this position. If you look at public records of H1B applications you will see that they have sponsored in the past.
    - so why did you wait 3 weeks to get on a phone call with me to tell me that you don't sponsor? what a waste of everyone's time
