    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Jawbone (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online. Got an email back within the first 3 days post submission. The recruiter was at least 40 minutes late for the call. Did not call/text to inform that he will be late. Still got a call however no apology what so ever. Interview questions were completely off, the recruiter did not review my CV prior to the call and had no idea that he is speaking to a senior level individual. Extremely unprofessional which left me with a very poor impression of Jawbone as an employer. When I have asked questions around some of the feedback on Glassdoor I was simply ignored. It's been months and I have not received any update regarding my application. Would never ever work for a company with such poor ethics! Hire recruiters that have less ego and more people skills. Probably one of the worst internal recruiters I've ever had an opportunity to speak to.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Jawbone (San Francisco, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Applied via jobvite (employee referral) on 2/22; 2 [1 hour] phone screens (3/10; 3/20) and an on-site 4/1 for the UP team [~5 hours + lunch]. Efficient interview process, everything moved very quickly and I enjoyed the overall experience. My interview started off with lunch since I was flying in from Seattle, followed by 3-4 in-person interviews afterwards. The questions were fair and I enjoyed my interview process -- the staff was super nice (receptionist and such), one of the gentleman even hailed a cab for me in the pouring SF rain. I didn't get to tour the office very much, but it seemed pretty open with large flat desks (mostly a Mac shop) with ample room to work with people side by side. I spent most of my time at the lunch table and in the conference room where my interview was; unlike some other companies I was able to take to break in between (not true for quite a few places I've also interviewed at). There were a couple of dogs running around which I think is awesome, unless you have allergies. Per the other interviewer, I disagree with the reimbursement schedule -- it took a bit of a emailing to get it back, but no more than other companies in the bay area.

    Interview Questions

    • I applied as a front-end software engineer and was asked pretty specific questions that tested breadth and depth of the web stack and then some (i.e. data structures, CSS, JavaScript, event handling, HTML, etc.). The questions were things you'd encounter on the job, pretty fair imho.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I knew someone in the hiring group and was invited to formally apply for the position. The process was standardized and fair. I completed a phone screen with the hiring manager. Since that went well, I came in to do in-person interviews with the hiring manager and representatives from the CX/UX group and the product teams that would be clients for CX/UX work. The process was handled well and I knew what to expect. My formal contact during the interview process provided clear briefing on the mechanics of the interviewing process as well as some of the thorny problems that the product groups needed solutions to. The questions were pointed and the interviews were cordial. Everyone was paying attention to cultural fit as well as technical chops. Ultimately I didn't end up working there, but the interview process was smooth and targeted.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Jawbone.

    Interview

    I submitted an application by email in response to a job posting for a Product Manager that I saw on Glassdoor. I received an email response that same day from a recruiter there interested in setting up a call later on the same day. It was a bit hectic as I tried to schedule a time to talk over the next couple of days, but I appreciated the quick response. When we connected she asked me a few questions about my background, and when it quickly became clear that I didn't have the necessary background for the position she offered to check for other jobs that might be a better fit within the company. When I followed up later she said she hadn't turned up anything.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Jawbone.

    Interview

    Phone screens, phone interviews, onsite interviews, more phone screens: They do a lot of poking and everyone wants to interview you but they don’t give any feedback, ever. They will tell you that they don't give out phone numbers or business cards, it’s because they don't want you to call them. Interview there only if you don’t care about any status or follow-up. They will not contact you after the interview nor respond to repeated requests for feedback.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Jawbone.

    Interview

    They were quick to get me in. Each interviewer was very late to the interview including the first person who was at least 20 minutes late - which spoke to their work environment. I wasn't given the opportunity to ask them questions. They were off to their next meeting. No post interview follow up.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Jawbone.

    Interview

    Was referred by an employee. Had a phone screen with an HR recruiter that went well. Had a non-technical phone interview with the hiring manager that mostly went well, though I stumbled on one of the hypothetical problem-solving questions. Was told I'd be contacted within a day or two, but it ended up taking two weeks to get a rejection. My interactions with the HR recruiter were excellent and I was told I should reapply after I obtain some industry experience.
