    Staff Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ann Arbor, MI (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (Ann Arbor, MI (US)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    There were three interview phases after I submitted my application.

    First I was called by a local talent management person (aka recruiter) and we set up a half hour interview in which he talked me through what Criteo did and asked some basic questions.

    Next I was invited to a video coding interview. This was done on Skype but we used an online code collaboration tool for the coding. It was basically a text editor since they were testing my ability to think and talk about algorithms. No compiler was used to check my code.

    The final stage took 4 hours in the office: two 1 hour sessions of whiteboard coding, 1 session of system design, and then an interview with the hiring manager. I also got a nice guided tour.

    The overall process was very smooth. It took longer than expected because of the Christmas holidays. The people I talked with were amazingly helpful throughout. Check out their web site since the process is well documented there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo in August 2013.

    Interview

    Talent Manager was super charming and did a great job of selling the position/company. She also provided a very clear picture of what I'd be walking into. The rest of the interview panel had a good understanding of my background without me having to tell too much - it was clear they knew the industry/function well.

    Associate Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (Boston, MA (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First a phone call with a hiring manager, then an analytical test on different digital marketing terms and metrics. They give you plenty of material to prepare for the test, can only really see it being difficult for someone not comfortable with numbers. After I passed the test I had Skype interviews with two of the sales directors. Pretty easy conversations just looking to get to know me on a personal level of sorts. After I passed those, they flew me out to Boston to do a presentation. The presentations is essentially just a pitch of the Criteo Value prop to a random company of your choice. They give you plenty of material to prepare with and the presentation is for 4 people at once who are listening and bouncing questions off you. Got the offer a few days later and I couldn't be more excited! Great people and excellent recruiting process.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Criteo.

    Interview

    I was referred by a current employee.

    I began talking to recruiter in January. Formal interview process began in March. I had a phone interview, took their analytical test, and had an "in person interview" via video conference call due to distance. All interviews went really well, I was highly interested in the position! After video interview I was asked to send my availability to fly to Boston to do a sales pitch.

    I followed up to thank those that interviewed me, asked a few questions, and sent my availability. They gave me a date that I would hear back about when i needed to come to Boston, when I didn't hear on that day I emailed the recruiter I had been working with. When I didn't hear after a few days I emailed again and called the office.

    I never heard from recruiter or anyone else in the company after that.

    Terrible communication and extremely unprofessional!

    There were 4 steps in this process in the following order: a phone screen, an online aptitude test, an in-person interview and an in-person mock sales pitch.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Criteo (Boston, MA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Shortly after applying for this role, a Criteo recruiter reached out for a phone interview. A few days later she then followed up to schedule another over the phone interview with two Account Executives, and then came an in person, mock sales pitch. I had expressed to my recruiter that I had deadlines for other positions and she assured me that their team would let me know their feedback as soon as possible (sometimes even day of). Not only did Criteo keep their word, but everyone in the office also made me feel extremely welcomed and relaxed throughout the interview process. This made the process not only efficient, but also enjoyable.
