    I have been working at Chegg full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Still feels like a collegial start up, great leadership- dynamic CEO. Really really cares about its employees

    Cons

    Hyper-growth: building the plane while flying it. Exciting- but hard work!

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about people. Keep developing them. Listen to them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Chegg (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on glassdoor and a recruiter calls me a day or two after and sends over a coding challenge. I took the challenge and they said I did great, then get a 45 min phone interview. The interviewer had a hard time getting out his question, I think he made it up on the spot, and the next couple of days I get a rejection email.

    Interview Questions

    • 3 hr coding challenge which was easy and I still don't know what he was trying to ask in the phone interview. They need to have a definitive question ready rather than making something up on the spot. If they didn't make it up on the spot it surely seemed that way.   Answer Question
