    Backend Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at 8x8.

    Interview Details

    I had applied to 8x8 through the career fair in my university and I got a call from a recruiter almost after 2 months. There was no telephonic interview and I was called directly for an onsite interview. I was asked to bring a laptop and it consisted of an hour long coding quiz followed by an interview with one of the member from the engineering team. The questions for coding quiz consisted of implementing an LRU Cache, Producer Consumer problem and one more question. I was not able to finish all of them in the given time. After an hour long code implementation, I was interviewed with one of the engineer. He asked me questions on the code that I had written and why I had written in a certain way. He asked me all basic java questions - threading, synchronization etc. His english was not very clear. So, at times it was hard to grasp what he was asking. I had to ask him to repeat the questions couple of times. But overall the interview was ok.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at 8x8 in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Attended their onsite interview. Was given 3 programming questions, an hour to crack them.
    1. Implement an LRU cache
    2. Implement BST traversal and search for a given node. If exists, print path to that node
    3. Producer Consumer problem

    Once done with the coding, was asked to mail them to the HR. This round was immediately followed by face to face interview with one of the engineers. Questions were mostly about Java
    - Difference between abstract class and interface
    - How does a heap work
    - How to implement connection pool etc

    Interview Questions
    • I answered all questions, the interviewer seemed happy. But got a rejection letter after a couple of days. No reason given. I think their system is to eliminate good engineers and keep the average/mediocre ones.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    The process took around 3 weeks. Initially got a call from Recruiter and scheduled a telephonic interview with Hiring Manager. It was a basic technical round o Java and Linux. After the interview he asked me to write a program on Word count and send it to him email. The next day i got a positive reply and recruiter scheduled an on-site interview. The On-site interview consisted of 4 face-face interviews. One was again a technical and behavioral round. One was a coding round where i was asked the following qns
    1. Height of a Binary Tree
    2. Find last n-th element in a LL
    3. Find two numbers that add up to a particular sum in an array.
    Third round was with a developer who asked me to write a program on producer-consumer and left the interview room. She came back after some 15 mins, took my paper and asked me to wait for next round which was with the manager.

    The final round was with the manager who asked me to write a code to remove duplicates in a string . He aslo asked some design qns related to projects i did.

    I was successful with all programming qns and was positive about the interview.

    Anyway i got a sorry lettter from HR after about a week.

    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at 8x8 in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    One of the best experiences I have had in recent history. I only got to the 3rd stage before I dropped out of contention for another position. The process involved an phone interview with the recruiter, a phone & in-person interview with the SVP of marketing. Although I dropped out after this point, the SVP was clear on the next steps (which was great) that included an interview with one of their agencies that the person would be working with an interview with 2 other team members and a quick interview with the CEO (The CEO wants to meet all their hires.)

    So like I mentioned earlier I dropped out of contention due to another job offer, however that is no fault of this company. They did all the right things, they look like their reputation on Glassdoor is improving and the SVP seemed like she would be a joy to work with; however, timing wasn't right and the company I ultimately choose to work for screamed through the interview process with me and gave me an offer in 4 days of the initial interview.

    Overall, I would recommend this company to any one that is lucky to get an offer. The process was pretty painless and the SVP of marketing would be a great pleasure to work with.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at 8x8 in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    1st off their recruiter is terrible. Talks to you on the phone gets you to send information in then goes radio silent. With a person like this representing this company, it makes you wonder why on earth you would want to work for them.

    Commissions Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at 8x8 in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    first had a phone interview with the hiring manager
    brought on-site to me with the hiring manager and his boss
    his boss kept on wanting to know why I picked my specific major and did not add an accounting minor. I had graduated 10+ ago from the same school that he went to. Is this really relevant to the requirements of the job?? that job does not require any accounting knowledge whatsoever. up to that point I knew that I would not get the offer. felt more like an interrogation than someone asking me about my qualifications and work experience

    UI Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at 8x8 in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    The overall process was typical. Meet for 30 minute time blocks with various persons in the company for whom the new candidate would work with. Some of the discussions were rather useless as the person(s) interviewing showed an extreme lack of disinterest. Unmotivated and not all interested in differing opinions or views on many subjects.

    Ok, I get it, some people are stubborn and strong willed. Others are open and invite new insights into processes, designs, thinking, technologies.

    At the end of the day, upon walking out after spending close to 3+ hours going through the motions, immediately new I was not a top contender. Ok with that as the there has to be chemistry for the team. But no response or follow up email / phone call really sends a clear picture about the people and how they run the company.
