    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at GoDaddy (Tempe, AZ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It was a straightforward interview. I was asked general questions. Math related or data structures. Cracking the coding interview would suffice. I was interviewed by a person who worked at Microsoft previously for 11 years and he said that the interview process is changing. Getting more difficult and he thinks it is moving in the right direction.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at GoDaddy (Tempe, AZ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied and within 10 hours I got an email back to do an online assessment. After I did that I got called within 16 hours and set up an over the phone i nterview. During said interview we set up an in person interview. Before I even did my in person interview they sent me their benefits and worded everything like I was already hired. I took a tour before my final interview and they made me feel like I was already apart of the team. They said they would call by the end of the day to let me know.
    I never got a call. I only got an email saying I wasnt good enough.
    I like godaddy but I dont like the way they act as if you're the chosen one. They gave me the employees benefits just to pretty much say "haha this is what our employees get and you get none of it" including everything they have within the building.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at GoDaddy in November 2014.

    Interview

    Scheduled interview for 1pm, sat in lobby till 2pm. Security guard was nice and amiable, seemed like some mixed communication between HR and interviewers. Upon interview, asked a lot about resume and briefly described their role. After seeing that my expertise was in Javascript, they only asked one technical question which was "What is a Javascript closure"? No further technical questions. Interview went well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at GoDaddy (Gilbert, AZ) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Initial application led to an email from a recruiter with a link to a testing site. This site did a small behavioral assessment and a 4 part customer call assessment. You have to listen to a call and choose responses from a list. The test allows you 30 minutes for 4 calls. About a week and a half later I received an email from a different recruiter who scheduled a phone interview two days later.

    The phone interview was about 20 minutes. The recruited explained the position, verified my ability to work any shift, and then asked several typical interview questions: why did I want to work for GoDaddy, what had I been doing recently, was I comfortable with sales. At the end of the interview he scheduled me for a face to face meeting two days later.

    The next step was a 3 part process. First I met with the recruiter who took me on a full tour of the facility and explained what the different areas were. Then he sat down with me in a private room and further explained the position and confirmed that I would be willing to work 3rd shift. He asked me details about the internet. Technical questions about DNS, POP vs IMAP, FTP. He also asked questions about how to handle a customer over the phone, how to figure out what a customer wants when the customer doesn't know himself. He wanted to be sure that I was comfortable working with customers that hosted adult websites. He then turned the tables and asked me what I wanted to know about GoDaddy and the position. He explained the benefits and training process and then handed me off to two hosting managers. This portion of the interview was about 30 minutes.

    The hosting managers went into more detail with the interview. They took turns asking questions - tell them about a time I owned a situation from start to resolution; when did I have to make a difficult decision that might end with a poor outcome; how do I set goals and accomplish them. During this time they also shared insight into the position and how they ended up with GoDaddy. They also ended with asking if there was anything they could answer for me. They walked me through the department and handed me off to the next hosting manager who was going to do an actual test of my skills. This second portion took about another 30 minutes.

    This portion of the interview should have been easy for me, as I have frequently done manual installs, but the pressure of doing it with someone watching, on an unfamiliar system with unfamiliar software was harder than I thought it would be. While they did give written instructions, they were not detailed, so you do have to know what you're doing. I will say that the hosting manager was right there and promised that I wasn't being graded on whether or not I could do it alone, and to feel free to ask questions. Which I did. When I finally got the install done, he had me close out the system. He then walked me through the rest of the building explaining a bit more about teamwork and the position. Then the interview process was over. In all, I was in the building for about 2 hours.

    They said they will have call with an answer, yes or no, within a week. Entire process from application to answer will take about a month.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at GoDaddy (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    First I successfully passed phone screening. Then they invited me to on-site interview. It was flight from San Jose to Phoenix AZ. I passed interview with 5 people which took whole day. After several days they contacted me and said yet another 5 people want to talk to me! This is unusual, I need to take day off. And then this is psychological pressure every interview. Ok, I agreed to pass this time over the phone. After several days they contacted me and said yet another two people want to talk to me! I said this is very unusual and instead of one hour per person 45 minutes! We assigned time, but I only one person called. Then they disappeared. I asked my recruiter to clarify this ridiculous behavior I got the answer that I am definitely in process, but they have delay. 3 months.

    Interview

    Did phone screen and every question was a behavioral question by some ditzy 20 year old as this was her first job it sounded like. Big waste of time as no questions regarding the position were asked or prior experience that relates to the position.

    Interview

    HR called initially to setup a phone interview with the hiring manager. After the initial round, I was given a case study to solve and then moved to 3rd and 4th rounds with the director and Senior manager. 3rd and 4th rounds were more about the job and how I would fit the job description.
