    Front End Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bazaarvoice in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by a friend and applied. The interview process itself was not bad(phone, test, in person) and one person was friendly enough but their ego seemed to get in the way. The in person interview at the company was the most revealing. If you still want to waste your time going through the process with them, the in person interview should have you running far far away and as fast as you can.

    Interview Questions
    • None. All questions we're very simple/basic including the test.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I talked to an employee and friend about the company and the company has problems. No individual growth potential for about 80% of it's employees. The company is not sure where it is headed and a very high turn over rate.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Bazaarvoice in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent in my resume and spoke to the Recruiter right away. After that call, I spoke to someone on the IPM team. After those two calls, I came onsite and had 3 interviews for 30 minutes each. The last step was to come back and do a mock kickoff call with the same people you interviewed with plus one more Manager.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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 Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Implementation Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bazaarvoice in October 2013.

    Interview Details

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

    Interview Questions
    • 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
