    I worked at Care.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Care.com is an all round great place to work, mostly because of the great people that work there and solid leadership team. The company manages to find a good balance between focusing on their financial goals and their drive to be a socially responsible company, which many other organizations find hard to do.

    Cons

    Some work can still be done to improve career progression within many of the teams and developing/coaching new leaders.

    Advice to Management

    As the company scales, focus a little more on empowering every employee and teaching them to have "bias for action" so that nothing gets in the way of the amazing things that you continue to do.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Care.com (Waltham, MA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewing at care.com was quite off-putting. It was clear from the phone screen and the initial
    interview they had no interest in my work experience and they offered no information about the position.
    HR provided general information about the company during the on-site interview. For the engineering
    managers its all about what esoteric Java language features you know, none of which, they admit their
    teams ever use.

    For my phone screen there was no information provided about the position or the company.
    They asked about my current position but it was clear they had no interest in the information.
    They could not get to their technical questions fast enough. Once they finished asking their
    questions there was no opportunity for me to ask questions. The phone call ended abruptly.

    At the in-person interview, again no information about the engineering position. No interest in
    my work experience. No information from 3 of the 4 (technical) interviewers about their role in
    the organization. We jumped right to the technical questions and once the interviewer finished
    his questions, he was out the door.

    I was able to rangle the last couple of interviewers to ask about the position, the architecture,
    their tools, how the teams interact. Unfortunately none of them were able to articulate a
    comprehensive view of the work and architecture or engineering organization.

    So study the esoteric Java language features. Be prepared to write code for typical things like
    the mouse-find-the-cheese, tree searches, managing N stacks in a single array. And ask your
    questions before the interviewer starts their technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Write a class to manage N stacks. The stacks reside in a single array.
      The init method parameters are int arr_size, int num_stks). arr_size is the
      lenght of the single array. num_stks is the number of stacks to create from the array. Write the push and pop methods.   Answer Question
