    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ask.com in December 2015.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews, and then zero communication. Both interviews seemed to go well. What I found frustrating however was the lack of follow up by the recruiter. I sent two follow up emails to the recruiter with no response. Other than that the scheduling was easy, didn't really ask any deep technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me about how I would explain technical topics with non-technical people.   Answer Question
