    Associate Technical Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Yext (Tysons, 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.

    Associate Technical Consultant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yext (McLean, VA) in September 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was straightforward. However, during each round it was almost solely behavioral. More importantly, they ask the same questions over and over. This is concerning because although you spend a long time interviewing for them you share the same stories about the same projects/situations over and over and that's all they learn about you. I'm surprised they'd want to make a full-time hiring decision based only on this. Also, one of the executives was openly bashing other companies while pitching Yext to us, which was awkward for many. Also, it circulated around that one of the engineers had accidentally mentioned that one of the executives was bashing everyone interviewing in the Slack group. Openly talking about how poorly some interviews were going is deeply unprofessional, especially from leadership. Its deeply concerning and certainly impacted interviews after people heard this. Lastly prior to the interview many of us didn't realize how basic the position was. Its essentially talking to clients and inputting information into a database. Travel seems appealing but the position isn't stimulating at all if you're not an engineer. Concerning atmosphere overall from a place I expected an uplifting culture. I've never attended a final round before that made me not want the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yext in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied to Yext and the next week I received an email to schedule the interview. Throughout the process the recruiters were extremely quick and thorough. The first round was the technical phone screen, which was fairly easy. The interviewer helped me out in the end when I got stuck. Then I was invited to the onsite interview, which consisted of one whiteboard interview, one debugging interview, one data structures interview, and a behavioral interview. The onsite was fairly casual and most of the interviewers were really nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yext (Tysons, VA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    One Phone Screen + 3 interviews on-site.

    Interview isn't particularly difficult if you have at least a basic understanding of DS. 2/3 interviewers were very nice, but the other one was inattentive and completely unresponsive. Didn't seem interested and made the interview very one-sided.

    HR on the otherhand is top-notch. Really quick at getting everything together. Seems like a good engineering culture, but product and work doesn't seem particularly exciting.
