    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BuzzFeed.

    Interview

    Pretty easy. Spoke to a handful of people in management, always over the phone. The whole thing took about a month. Found it strange they were happy to just talk to me over the phone. I know we were in different countries but I was expecting at least one Skype video call -- the closest thing to a face-to-face interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard. My work history, etc, etc.   1 Answer
