    Interview

    This was on campus placement drive. There was one written test of 30 questions consisting of quant, verbal, software engineering, os and was asked to find output of some programs. After this there were 3 face to face interviews. 2technical and 1HR. In the 1st technical interviews they mostly asked about the projects i have done in academics and some details abt it, and about some sorting algorithms also they asked about interests and hobbies. Then in the HR round some common questions were asked. Then it was followed by the 2nd technical round in which they mostly asked about the java concepts also asked to write some queries. The questions about java were mostly on threads, java reflection, executor service class, Object class, mutex and semaphores.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mediaocean.

    Interview

    A waste of time. I initially spoke with the director recruiting at the beginning of November. Our conversation seemed to have gone well however I never heard back. A month later, another internal recruiter reaches out as if it's the first time I've been contacted re this role. I'm told to take two different assessments before even speaking with the recruiter. I take the tests and set up an initial phone screen with her. She mentions the hiring manager saw my resume and wants to speak with me. Great. This however can't take place until I retake the math/comprehension test AGAIN, via Skype just so they can make sure it's me. What a joke. Thereafter, I'm not finally able to speak with the hiring manager. First, she was very cold over the phone and not friendly. Second, after about 4 minutes, she asks about my traditional experience and I tell her it is limited. My resume CLEARLY shows my experience is in Digital yet after speaking with the hiring manager I'm now told the role pertains mainly to traditional media. This wasn't even made clear in the job description because if it was, I never would've applied. All in all, complete waste of time.

    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mediaocean (New York, NY (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    They have you take a aptitude test and a personality test with the application, and then retake the test in the first interview. First interview was over Skype, this was much more of a "get to know you" type interview. The recruiter gave a good rundown on the company, the job, the training process, and the hiring process. Second interview was about a week after the first, this was the technical portion. The recruiter takes you on a tour of the office, then you sit down with a dev in the Chicago office and talk with him and a New York dev over Skype. Basic technical interview questions, no real curve balls. After this, there's a talk with one of the execs in NY over Skype. Basically, he's looking for a personality fit at this point.

    I got an offer literally on the drive home. The whole process was pretty low stress, and amazingly quick. Everyone I dealt with was very nice, and very relaxed, they definitely put you at ease.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mediaocean (Atlanta, GA (US)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume on LinkedIn. Had an interview with the Director of Customer Support.

    Was told that the company had a large number of potential growth opportunities available.

    Asked me about my background as they read it off my resume. It seemed like the Director had not looked at my resume until we sat down for the interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Mediaocean.

    Interview

    The interview process is long, it consists of 4 rounds including one written aptitude test.
    But it is worth the time and efforts.
    For aptitude and first interview I had to go to their office. Third technical round and HR discussion were telephonic.

    Negotiation

    They agreed to pay what I asked for. It was easy negotiation. HR is very supportive.

    .NET Developer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mediaocean (Chicago, IL (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    After applying I received an email prompting me to take a timed personality and cognitive test. The cognitive test got harder over time. The questions were primarily math word problems, pattern matching multiple choice questions, and English language based multiple choice questions.

    From there I was told I would need to schedule a Skype webcam interview where I would take the cognitive test again and then talk about the position. The interviewer was very friendly and cordial. They asked about 3 straightforward questions, then allowed me to ask questions about the job. They then told me to contact them after a certain date to find out if I would move on to more interviews.

    I was told after contacting them that they had gone with an employee referral. Overall the process is somewhat slow moving at first, but it was not a bad experience.

    You have to take a cognitive test- twice. Once when you apply and again during a Skype interview so they can monitor you. Long interview process. If you make it until the end, you have 3 interviews total. Very nice interviewers. Great experience.
