    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Propeller (Portland, OR (US)).

    Interview

    The Propeller interview process was very thorough, including four different rounds of interviews. The first three interviews were each about 30-60 minutes and were via phone, video chat, and/or in person. The final interview was an in-person business case interview at the company's HQ in Portland, Oregon.

    The recruiting team was extremely professional and courteous during the entire interview process, including sharing important information about expected timelines for decisions as well as additional tidbits about the company as the interview process continued. I usually heard within one week of my interview if I was advancing to the next stage.

    At the end of each interview, I was given a chance to learn more about Propeller and ask questions of the interviewee. I really appreciated this extra touch to ensure that I would enjoy working at Propeller.
