    Hiring process was pretty good. Interviewing was pretty demanding but it shifts for what position you are interviewing for I'm sure. The HR process has been kind of crazy, but I hear they are working hard at the moment.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bazaarvoice in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process for technical positions at Bazaarvoice is fairly straight forward. There is a technical test and if you pass you get an interview. They are extremely protective of the culture at Bazaarvoice, so the face to face seemed much like a personality test. They also grilled me on a few questions from the skills test, but that was more like seeing if I was the one who took the test.

    Interview Questions
    • CSS, XML,HTML and Javascript, but they were pretty straight forward.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was pleasant and they were willing to negotiate on salary. I am very pleased.

    As others have said, it's a process that really tests how much you want the job. If you're excited at the prospect of joining the team at Bazaarvoice, then the process is invigorating and exciting. If not, then I'm sure multiple interviews followed by a presentation is a little daunting. I found the process to be very fair and it gave me the chance to put my best foot forward, vs. most interviews. My .002...look at the presentation part as a new prospect you're trying to land and put in the time needed to distance yourself from the pack.

    Implementation Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Bazaarvoice in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial call with their recruiter. Then I was setup with a 1.5 hour interview with 3 different people. I read all of the reviews here on glassdoor regarding what I should expect and they were very helpful. After I made it past that round, I was as asked to come back for a panel presentation. I was to conduct a sample kickoff with a new customer. The panel never took any notes, and it appeared that no matter what I did, their minds were made up. I was told that I did a great job, but wasn't hired because they felt that the experience I had didn't line up with what they were needing for the role.

    Overall it was a great experience. The people I interviewed with were awesome, but I did feel like I was just going through the motions.

    Market Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bazaarvoice in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a phone interview request to schedule a time. The phone interview was fairly casual with some general questions on experience, background, and any current knowledge I had about the company. I would say it helps to do a little bit of research behind the company so that you at least have a general idea about what they do.

    A few days after the initial phone interview I received an email stating they would like to proceed with the interview process. I was notified that the process would involve a couple stages involving a 1:1 with 2-3 directors, managers, and/or team members and a presentation/role-play test. The 1:1 interviews would determine whether I would advance to the second stage.

    My 1:1 interviews were 30 min with a director and 30 min with a manager. Once again, it definitely helps to be prepared. I didn't just skim over the webpage for info, I spent a good amount of time reading/studying their case papers, blog, and webinars. The more info I discovered, the more I felt Bazaarvoice would be a great fit for me. I really felt that the research paid off in not only showing my passion to work for the company, but also in giving me a little head start in getting up to speed once I got the job.

    In a few days I received notification I had qualified to move on to the final round and I was scheduled to come in about a week later. I was to bring in a prepared intro letter / email to a hypothetical director or VP of a potential client company, then I would role-play a phone call with said VP, then be given a few minutes to write a follow up email on the spot. This final process was the most nerve racking part! PREPARE, PREPARE, PREPARE! Solid knowledge of BV services/products and industry will help you overcome objections in the role-play.

    Everyone was very respectful and the overall work atmosphere on my visits seemed very cheerful and bright. The HR staff and recruiter were incredibly friendly, kept in good contact, and genuinely seemed to want to find the right fit for the job. All in all, I found the process to be challenging and exciting.
