Program Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Bazaarvoice.

Interview Details – Submitted resume online through their website. After about 2 weeks I received an email from HR and had a subsequent phone call with the recruiter. Then another call with the hiring manager a week or so later, and finally after about another week I was brought in to meet the hiring manager and three other employees I would be interacting with. Almost a month duration from first contact to the office interviews. The interviews were professional and I feel they asked typical questions for the role. I was told several times during the process that my experience matched well and was "what they were looking for". However, I was told they went with another candidate with similar experience but with more exposure to their industry. I don't necessarily agree that industry experience would be a differentiating factor for this position, and it would have been helpful for them to state upfront if that was a potential deal-breaker. I was surprised, as they didn't seem that myopic during the interviews.

Interview Question – They were mostly interested in my background and past experiences, and had some questions regarding how to handle difficult situations and people. For this role there was no technical assessment required. Because of my experience, I think the on-site interviews were more about personality than whether I was qualified, because I was asked pretty much the same questions that I got from the phone interviews.   Answer Question

Technical Success Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bazaarvoice in November 2013.

Interview Details – First interaction was a phone interview with a recruiter, very straight forward no difficult or unexpected questions.
Next, was a phone interview with a hiring manager. I was asked mostly behavioral questions about situations I had been in and how I handled them.
I was then given a technical assessment. I worked with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and JQuery. It was straightforward and not too difficult, but it was timed.
Lastly, I was brought in for an on-site. I had multiple back to back interviews and the last interview administered a second technical assessment.

Interview Question – Using JavaScript, display a paragraph of content when a specific button is clicked.   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Bazaarvoice in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online, got an e-mail the next week for a position in NY.

Interview Question – It was a phone screening and I really hated the fact that the guy went straight into asking "What are you salary expectations?" Which to me is an insult since they are scanning for cheap labor instead on focusing first to see if I was a good match for the company so that we could agree on a salary much later in the process. Glad I don't have to work for those guys.   View Answer

Difficult Interview

Implementation Engineer Interview

Implementation Engineer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bazaarvoice in October 2013.

Interview Details – Started off with a phone screening with HR. This was followed by a timed test on HTML/CSS/XML.

After a week or so, I was contacted for a technical phone interview. During this phone interview, I was asked a number of HTML/CSS/JavaScript related questions ranging from easy to moderately difficult. Unfortunately, I did not study for this as much as I could have so I did not perform too well. All of the questions were fair questions.

Interview Question – For a product page, would you rather have a server loaded page or client loaded page?   Answer Question
