Interview

Hiring team fails to inform you throughout the interview process and doesn’t reply to emails. Very unprofessional for a company of that size. They completely ghost on you to inform you of anything.

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

Overall the process was great. I appreciate that they don't purely test you on leetcode problems and also value your debugging and system design skills. Interviewers were all very nice and the problems were interesting.

Smooth and well-organized. Not very difficult in terms of technical problems but very long. Could have better team matching but nothing major. Very flexible in terms of dates and times.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Yext in Oct 2022

Interview

1 hour on-campus technical interview (1 coding and 1 debugging problem) 1 hour virtual technical interview 20 minute virtual behavioral interview The technical interviews were a reasonable difficulty. I think they were looking for your thought process more than you having a fully working solution at the end. Behavioral interview was pretty short and easy

Interview

The interview process involved an architecture review and security depth questions but not technical coding interview. The process was quick and the recruiter was ambitious with the offer soon after the interviews were done. Overall the interviewers were professional and the recruiter was respectful of my time and considerations. They even allowed me to set up follow up meetings with the team before making my final decision on the offer I received.
