    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Chegg (Palo Alto, CA).

    Interview

    Referred by a friend. Whole process took a week. Initial phone call with Head of Talent Acquisition going into experiences and why I'd wanna be a TS. Invited onsite the next week. Met with Head of Talent & 2 recruiters. No offer as they were made changes to the role after interview.
