    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly informal, as it seemed to be somewhere in between a tour and an interview. As this was a fairly long time ago, I can't remember any specific questions that I was asked. I can say that there weren't any questions that hit me off guard, as they were simple questions with the intent to get to know the applicant.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Beverly Hills, CA (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Beverly Hills, CA (US)
    Application Details

    interviewed at MySpace in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a recruiter who were quick to set up the phone screen.
    Phone screen was about an hour long. I was asked questions about basic java concepts, multithreading, design patterns, hibernate etc. Overall the interview went all.

    Next I was called for an in person round, however it was just a coding exercise test conducted onsite. I was given a problem and laptop and was asked to code the solution in about 2-3hrs.

    The office building looked awesome, however the place looked very deserted, not sure if it's because not a lot of people work there anymore or because everyone decided to take off at the same time.

    Interview Questions
    • Mutex vs Semaphone, Multithreading, Transactions in spring, hibernate configurations, design pattern - builder, factory, abstract factory, TCP vs UDP, coding exercise on reading csv and xml and printing some data   Answer Question

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beverly Hills, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at MySpace in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    It was a one-week process, as they were in a high-growth phase and needed bodies quickly. There was one initial interview with the hiring manager, then two follow-up interviews with other staff members. Questions were straightforward -- no curveballs. Cultural fit and passion for the product seemed to be the top priority.

    Interview Questions
    • Really none to speak of. I was asked what 1-2 things I would do to improve MySpace, which was easy to answer at the time because the site was still popular/growing, so I had tons of ideas. But if someone were asked that question now... yikes.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Quick, straightforward. I think it was two phone calls over two days. The offer wasn't anything to write home about, but the site was so popular at the time that they had all the leverage. Didn't get them to budge much.

    Visual Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Beverly Hills, CA (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Beverly Hills, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at MySpace.

    Interview Details

    The whole process was fairly standard. Phone interview. In-person interview with a designer and person from product team. I crush the interview, my work was by far better than anything I've seen in Myspace to date. Ultimately I was led on by the recruiter and after several follow-up emails she didn't even have the decency to tell me it was no. What a joke and highly insulting.

    The offices seemed cool, great location but abandoned. Like a company that is loosing millions of dollars a year.

    Interview Questions
    • They told me Myspace is totally changing the direction of the company, vision and product but couldn't give me any details, at all. And with that they tried to ask me how I would redesign Myspace by looking at the current (horrible) site. I was interviewing for Visual Designer not Creative Director.   Answer Question

    Database Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Beverly Hills, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at MySpace in October 2008.

    Interview Details

    I had one phone interview, and one three hour in person interview. This was the most organized technical interview I have ever been on. The architect had three exercises for me to do. A batching exercise, a partition exercise, and something about service broker. The hiring process was fast, so expect a call within a few days after the interview if things went well.

    Interview Questions
    • I was not expecting to be asked about horizontal partitioning. They deal with quite a bit of data over there.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very straightforward. The offer was good, and I took it.
