    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yext.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Yext (Durham, NC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Very reasonable. Talked to Yext at a college career fair and was reached out to by the company. Met the recruiter and several developers at a dinner they invited me to. Was interviewed the next day on campus. Was given two technical questions, and was given time at the end to ask questions of my interviewer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yext (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screening which lasted a standard 15-20 minutes. Standard question about why Yext, why sales, personal qualities that would help, and name a time when you have had to sell something. Then they brought me into the office for a full interview. First thing to do was read a script into the phone talking about the product and giving a pitch. I then met with three different managers of the sales teams for interviews lasting around 20 minutes each. It was a mix of fit questions regarding personal attributes and qualities, some more specific sales questions, and explaining the role, the company, department, and pay structure.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yext (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had an on-campus interview and an on-site, 4 round interview. The first interview was a 30 minute behavioral interview, the 2nd was a debugging interview, and the third and fourth were the usual coding interviews. HR was pretty nice and accommodating. 2 of my four interviewers seemed like stereotypical , unsociable tech guys while the other two were rather nice.

    Interview Questions

    • On campus: Given two strings determine if there is a one to one mapping between each letter in the string. On-site : Debug Conway’s game of life, snake key pattern of a matrix (the problem was a disguised diagonal traversal of a matrix), word break (see LeetCode), and find all possible words given a telephone number.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yext (Charlottesville, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Not bad. Resume drop, and then in-person behavioral interview. They held a cocktail hour the night before to get to know the interviewers, but I ended up talking to a new person. They don't have specific recruiters, so it is just regular employees.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    One hour phone coding challenge followed by an onsite with two 1 hour technical interviews and lunch. I didn't do well on the second onsite tech question so they short circuited the interview.

    The people were nice and their office space is maybe the best I've ever seen. I think Yext might be one of the best companies no one has ever heard of.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yext (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online and the recruiter got back to me relatively quickly to schedule a phone call. The phone call went well (we discussed which start day would be better for me) and scheduled an in person interview with management. Throughout the process I was told they liked my enthusiasm, my work experience and that I was asking great questions. Needless to say I was not offered the position. I would like for the recruiter to reach out to those who didn't get the position instead of the generic email they send out. I'm not asking for a detailed written email but I would have appreciated some feedback.

    Interview

    Easy interview - they are looking to lure young kids to make 4 hours of phone calls to business owners and scam them out of 500 bucks. If they want to hire you take personal offense because they are looking for people that are lured by candy and ten bucks seamless with no career goals.
