    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Princeton, NJ (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Dow Jones (Princeton, NJ (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and it was downhill from there. I had the worlds most useless company recruiter. She would:

    Respond late
    Not respond at all
    Give wrong information
    Forget to send files
    Randomly call me
    Go on vacation without saying anything
    Forget me (I had to contact my future manager to ask where she went and what was going on)
    Didn't send me a benefits package before giving me an exploding offer on a weekend
    Extended the process by 5 weeks due to her complete incompetence
    She would text me (dear recruiters: texting is weird, email or scheduled phone call only, thanks)

    Lets step back: I applied, had a phone screen, then had a call where I wad asked behaviorial and light tech questions. I was then taken onsite and asked random coding questions, some not relevant to the position, simply because they were somewhere on my resume. Overall the process was too easy and any developer with a brain could have gotten hired. This happened in a few weeks.

    Then the awful recruiter just left me in the dark.

    Eventually weeks later, after going around her, she mysteriously surfaced (AND DIDNT APOLOGIZE) and I received a sudden offer on a Friday at 530pm when I was living my life. I had to accept it by Sunday. She made this experience painful to say the least.

    I should have seen this as a warning sign of things to come, but I'll write that in an actual review.

Be patients I got a call few weeks later when I applied I didn't even remember that I applied for that position. Even after the interview I had to call HR to follow up. It's a union place so ask lots of questions before accepting the job.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Dow Jones (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    They require a video submission, an essay, and multiple interviews. Be prepared to put effort into your application. This is not a position that you can submit your resume and tweak a generic cover letter for. The actual interview questions are pretty standard, but it takes a while to get to that point.
