    Average Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sprout Social (United States)


    Received a LinkedIn message from a recruiter that directed me to the careers page with more details on the job. We set up an intro call and I was told the next step would be an interview with the team if they were interested (but they were not). I received a rejection email about a week later.

    Asked broad, generic questions about my experience and how it was relevant.
