    Great people. Great location. Doing good for the world. Good mission.


    Books are tough. Economics are terrible. Business model is questionable.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BookRenter.


    Called for a phone screen and then told to meet at the office. Located on a single floor of a multiple story building. Nice and clean office, as you'd expect from a start-up environment. Everyone I saw was friendly. Interviewed with 3 different people. The first person was the recruiter who I did the phone screen with, then two department managers. I was asked just basic questions at first (first person) and then mostly behavioral ones (not the best kind of behavior questions they could of asked, I felt). Interview was about two hours long, I recall.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain how you'd teach an ordinary person, who hypothetically doesn't know how to brush their teeth, how to brush their teeth . After that was answered, was asked the same question with a twist: explain how you'd teach them if they had no arms   1 Answer
