    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Grubhub (Chicago, IL (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Since there are not many data scientist interview reviews about grubhub, I decided to write one for future candidates, hoping to improve grubhub's recruiting process as well.

    I applied online. Then a recruiter reached out to me, and then scheduled two phone interviews. I guess I did not pass, as there are no follow-ups after conversation with them.

    I want to write this review as I found their review process a bit different from data scientist position I interviewed.

    1. Recruiters seem not professional, as she/he is the very first data science recruiter who cannot even recognize key words related to machine learning and who thinks stats and machine learning are totally unrelated.

    2. The interview is not well structured. As now I recall, the phone screens are a mixture of behavioral, technical and case interview. I do not understand how one could achieve some goals in one 30-minute interview and indeed the first interview was overtime - the interviewer obviously did not finish what he wanted to ask.

    3. I do not understand the interview order either. I was firstly interviewed by someone pretty senior before the second more junior data scientist. I felt really honored yet a bit terrified to speak with a person with such seniority for my first interview, and at the same time confused about what exactly he is looking for.

    Enterprise Support Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grubhub (Boston, MA (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process is very well planned, first the phone screen with a writing exam and then the on-site interview where you get to meet most of the team. Everyone is very nice and make you feel comfortable, take your time when answering questions and help you if you are not sure what they asked.

    Enterprise Support Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Grubhub (Boston, MA (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Got contacted for a phone interview with the hiring manager. I thought it went pretty well, I was sure that my previous experience and background lined up for the position but got an email from the recruiter the next day saying they're moving on to other candidates. I'm glad they actually got back to me that quickly instead of dragging on the process. Maybe I'll get to work with the company in the future!

    Field Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grubhub (Portland, OR (US)).

    Interview

    Focused, detailed and professional. I had 4+ interviews and was happy that I prepared so diligently. Grubhub had done its homework on me and I did my homework on Grubhub. In the final interview, I was told a story and a couple of managers role-played with me to see how I'd handle objections and questions I didn't know answers to.

    Enterprise Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grubhub (Chicago, IL (US)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    First, I had an initial screening call with a recruiter. I had a great call with the recruiter and she quickly set up 2 additional calls with other enterprise account managers. My 2 additional calls also went very well. Then I was scheduled to have a video call with a director. After it was scheduled, they asked to reschedule it because the director was out on vacation. The interview with the director was over video, a method that I feel does not really give candidates a fair opportunity to really make a connection with a potential employer. I was also instructed to give a presentation, which I did. I knew that I wouldn't be connecting with this director within the first 5 minutes of interview. First, she did not have my resume...which means she knew NOTHING about me, even though I had already been speaking to Grubhub for over 3 weeks about the role. Then she asked really basic questions. This just showed me how unprepared she was and how this interview process was not a priority at all. I would fire people like this.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grubhub (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    Phone Screen - 4 in-person, 1 Skype

    The oddest thing about the interview was no one seemed happy to be working there. This was a really bas sign to me.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Grubhub (Chicago, IL (US)) in May 2019.

    Interview

    The first phone screen was a role-play scenario, then you will go in for an interview with two different sales managers. The sales managers are really nice and don't ask a ton of technical questions. You need to be prepared to answer a ton of logistical questions of the role-play, what's the fees structure for the restaurants, how does GrubHub work, those kinds of questions.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grubhub (New York, NY (US)) in May 2019.

    Interview

    20 minute phone screen, was told I would hear back by the end of the week and did not get any word. No rejection, nothing. Disappointing that companies don't feel the need to provide a response after hours of applying, preparing, and interviewing.
