    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yext.

    Interview

    I applied online to Yext and had a phone interview scheduled with someone in Recruiting. I was scheduled for a video interview to follow up the next week. After being sent a confirmation, I was never sent information on the video interview, which I emailed them about the night before. Nobody called at the scheduled time - I called the recruiting coordinator several times and sent a few emails asking for details but heard no answer. I got an email that afternoon saying they would reschedule, but they never reached out, and then two weeks later I got an email saying they went with an internal candidate. Very unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yext (Atlanta, GA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    First they do a typical 45 minute phone tehcnical interview. For the Partner Engineer position, there is an additional screening where you have to do a presentation exploring one of their APIs. I suppose its a way to test your technical knowhow as well as your behavioral skills.

    Associate Technical Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tysons Corner, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yext (Tysons Corner, VA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview was fairly straightforward to begin with, a lot of talking on the interviewers end which was nice and got a lot of information about the company. Strange logic question at the end that really threw me off, was surprised to get an onsite interview.
    On site interview was great, everyone on the team was incredibly friendly and the interviews/"presentation" wasn't easy but also wasn't too hard, definitely a solid challenge. What completely rubbed me the wrong was the attitude they seemed to hold on the exclusivity and competitiveness of their recruiting process. In the beginning of the day we were informed of the office's 1% hiring rate, and that there were only about 3-5 positions to be filled Personally, it just made me uncomfortable to start the day off like that especially hearing that while with 6+ other interviewing candidates. I'm agree with being highly selective for top jobs at top companies, but it seemed excessive to give superdays to 30+ people for only 3-5 max jobs at such a small office. That being said, the team at the office is great and I would encourage others to apply for jobs here, just be warned about the potential superiority complex held by management in terms of the recruiting process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Yext (Tysons Corner, VA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick. Applied through my school career portal and on the Yext website and was offered a phone interview within 12 hours. Following the phone interview I was alerted that I was being offered an on-site interview within 6 hours. After the on-site interview I was alerted of a decision within 2 business days. The process went by super quick and took about 2 weeks in total. The interview process was very laid back and was focused on company fit and your ability to be successful within the role.
