    Average Interview


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


    Applied online and contacted about 3-4 weeks later for phone interview with the manager of the team. Phone interview was standard questions, topical overview of the role. Received an email to schedule on-site interview. This was extremely difficult and took over a week to schedule. The HR contact was not very responsive leaving a smaller window available for the 4 hour interview. The 2nd HR contact who was supposed to reach out and give information on what to expect from the interviews never reached out. On-site met with 4 people from the team for 1 general interview, behavioral interview, case study interview, and wrap up with manager again. Again, the 2nd HR contact was supposed to call to recap, but never reached out.
