    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at RetailMeNot.

    Interview Details

    I had an hour long on-campus interview the day after the career fair that they called and invited me to the morning of. It was a technical interview and they only asked one question, but every time I got it a new twist was added to the problem to make me change or expand my answer. Coding was done on paper, not pseudo code.

    Account Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at RetailMeNot.

    Interview Details

    Only got as far as a screening call from the HR person. She was fairly abrupt and not super friendly. They were looking for someone with very specific management experience (having managed a team of 8+) and she ended the interview immediately once realizing I didn't hit the 8 number. I appreciate being clear on the need for the role, but I also think from a relationship standpoint, and for future hiring, they'd want to learn about their candidates and maintain a positive experience.

    Quality Engineer I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at RetailMeNot.

    Interview Details

    First I had a phone screening and was asked questions about how web works. HTTP commands, DOM, SQL and other basic tech questions. Was also asked some basic behavior questions and questions relating to my resume. After the phone screening I was asked to come in and do an on site interview.

    Interview schedule was sent to me and had a series of 1 on 1 interviews. Was asked similar questions which were basically trying to gauge my general testing strategy. Each member of the team had a different question for me that related to testing. "How would you test X?" They looked for my priorities and general strategy. Some questioned why I prioritized certain aspects of the object/app and I was expected to explain it.

    Application Details

    Interview Details

    The interviews themselves were not too challenging. The communication from the hiring managers, however, was very terrible. There was an extreme lack of communication early on and throughout the process. Hiring Managers (or whatever the job title) should be very responsible regarding feedback and next steps. At RetailMeNot though, they don't seem to be doing there job very well. I ultimately gave up on the interviewing process because of the extreme lack of professionalism and wouldn't recommend this place to anyone in my network.

    Very nice and respectful interviewers with a lot of knowledge. A large component of the process was to determine cultural fit. The on-site interview included a tour and overview of benefits.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at RetailMeNot in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The company contacted me via linked in and i responded. I got a call with an HR rep within the week, who then set up 2 calls with a manager and director. Both calls were pleasant. They wanted to get to know me but also asked questions relevant to the position. After the calls i was sent 2 assessments/case studies to complete. I emailed those to them and within a few days they reached out to me about going to the office for an in person interview. I'm from out of state so they flew me out the week after and got me a hotel, all compensated, as well reimbursement for food and taxis. The office was amazing, walked to the receptionist/barista and waited to interview with 4 separate people (4+ hours total), including each member i would work with, a director and a VP. All interviews went well, no real difficult questions. They were all related to the position. After i flew back i got a call the next day and accepted.

    They offered more than i currently make, so there was no opportunity to negotiate. I even asked, but they reiterated that the benefits were 2nd to none, which is completely true. They even helped with relocation and were flexible with start dates

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at RetailMeNot.

    Interview Details

    After giving them my resume I had an initial on-campus interview. Once I passed that they invited me to their main headquarters in Austin, TX. There I had 4 separate interviews each lasting around an hour. All 4 of these interviews were technical, covering topics in basic data structures. I believe I was asked a question on networking as well.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at RetailMeNot in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview following on-campus career fair then offered on-site interview in Austin, TX offices. On-site consisted of 4 coding interviews with various questions ranging from string comprehension to bit-wise manipulation. At end of interview day, mentioned to interviewer that I had another offer which I had to respond to by Friday of that week and was told that I would be informed of my decision by then. On that Friday, I had still not received any response and called the offices to speak to recruiter. Recruiter was not available to speak and also did not receive any word for multiple weeks. Seemed very unprofessional to me to not respond in a timely manner when I was told I would hear back. Another friend who had interviewed with me had a similar experience but he was at least told he did not get an offer whereas I received no response.
