    PHP Web Developer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Red Frog Events (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a message the following day to schedule a phone interview with a current web developer. I scheduled for the following week.

    The phone interview was with one of their current developers. He began by discussing some of my experiences, what frameworks I had used, what I loved about web development, etc. He then moved on to culture fit questions, such as how would deal with a difficult co-worker. I was then asked a lot of questions about what I do outside of work, what I liked about Red Frog, and more general culture fit questions. We seemed to get along.

    The following day, I was invited for an on-site interview. I traveled to Chicago (I lived in a city close by) and sat down with a recruiter and the web developer I spoke with on the phone. I got a tour of the office before being led to a conference room. They asked more specific questions about my work experience, PHP, and the Laravel platform. There was a lot of comparing and contrasting the different technologies I used in my career. The recruiter also asked many behavioral questions, such as what my biggest accomplishment was. I was told I would receive a decision and possibly an offer within the next week.

    At the end of that week, I was asked to schedule another on-site interview. I requested a video chat instead, which was accepted. I was also given two basic coding projects to do the week before my interview. While they were not too bad and fair, it was difficult for me to devote the time needed to produce a 100% quality product considering I had family issues at the time and was a full-time student. I sent the code sample on the day of my interview.

    The video chat consisted of me presenting my solutions to a team of 3 developers and explaining why I made the decisions I made. I then had more behavioral and general technical questions, such as why I liked web development, what I was going to school for, etc. Some questions from the previous interview were repeated, I have a feeling as though they were testing to see if I had further researched what was discussed in the last interview. Following that, an HR representative came in for the last 10 minutes and did a lightning round of situational "Tell me about a time..." questions.

    Two days later, I received a generic rejection message from Jobvite, which I considered unprofessional considering how much personal interaction I had with my recruiter during the process. I do not think I would apply at Red Frog again.
