    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yext (New York, NY) in July 2013.


    Applied at the Uncubed NY event and later online as well, got a response and a phone interview about 2 weeks after. Was later called in for an onsite interview. There were 4 technical interviews with a lunch in between. Some interviewers gave hints, while others sat in silence while you work on the problem.
