Pros

Yext's product suite is interesting and constantly innovating, so there is always interesting work coming down the line. Company culture is friendly and fairly extroverted. Even during COVID,

Cons

The company has grown very quickly, so roles and responsibilities for teams often must adapt. This fast pace can lead to some confusion over teams' responsibilities among employees and clients

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yext (United States) in Mar 2021

    Interview

    Applied online
    1. Intro call with the recruiter
    2. Call with the manager, 30 mins, behavior questions
    3. Take home excel assessment, you're allowed to use google to help
    4. Super Day: 45 min conversation with the hiring manager, 45 min conversation with another manager, 30 mins to do a live excel assessment (much easier than the take home)
    The whole process took around 3 weeks, recruiter was super friendly and always available whenever I needed to ask questions. Everyone who interviewed me was super friendly and it felt like a conversation of them getting to really know me. Overall very quick and efficient, and most importantly responsive!
