What people are saying about LinkedIn's interview

Check out some of the positive highlights that others have written about their LinkedIn interview experience on Glassdoor:

  • ”The interview process included 4 rounds with 7 interviews total that ranged from: Behavioral/Fit, Technical, and Case Studies. Overall it was a thorough and comprehensive interview process with different members from the team and cross-functional business units. The process kicked-off with a phone interview and then I proceeded to additional interviews that were technical, case, & fit - interview. Be prepared to have a clear & succinct story about your background/experiences, know how to translate to the role, and brush up on your case study skills ahead of time.”
  • ”First two calls from LinkedIn recruiter and a 1 hour tech interview on Collabedit. Was very responsive. Interview processes was good. Work on your algorithm, programming and JavaScript.”

And here are some of the negative experiences interviewees have reported to Glassdoor:

  • ”There were two questions asked. Solved both on time but the feedback was "asked many questions to understand second problem". Not sure if that’s fair especially for a phone screen where we understand the problem before coding the solution.”
  • ”One of the interview sections was described by the coordinator before the interview process as "contrived" and had a trick answer; they then cited my not getting that trick answer as a justification for not hiring me.”
