    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Pandora Media.

    Interview

    A recruiter talked to me and asked a bunch of questions including technical ones which the recruiter probably didn't understand. It was all VERY positive with talk about how the process was going to move very fast on a positive note. Two days later I get an email saying they are going to look for someone closer to their technical core.
