    Foundation President Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Bazaarvoice in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very informal process. Found out through a friend of a friend and then had a call that led to an interview. Since this is not an official position that is posted the process will be different from other job postings. Once there I interviewed with 3 different people independently.

    Interview Questions
    • None really. I believe the biggest issue was the lack of consistency between interviewers. It felt as they all had a different type of candidate in mind and different goals for that candidate. I believe they were not ready to move on a candidate for their newly yet to be formed Foundation.   Answer Question

    Fantastic experience; no "gotcha" questions. They use a really cool "take home" project to gauge your coding/scripting skills.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bazaarvoice in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Sales Director Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bazaarvoice in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    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 Engineer Interview

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

    Tech Services Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Bazaarvoice in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    For over a month and a half, I met with 13 individuals in almost every setting imaginable, including a presentation in front of a group of interviewers. Many of the vibes I received were negative. For example, two different managers told me, "You're not the perfect person for the job, but then again, no one is. We'll probably hire you, though, simply because we've waited so long and you're the most qualified person we've found." Way to get the relationship off on the right foot.

    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+ weeks - interviewed 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.
