    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fuze in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    a few interviews in person with engineering leaders. CEO did not know what to ask but questioned my commitment to his culture. Was trying to figure out my age and asked me twice about my age. That was a turn-off.

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Fuze in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter reached out to me with an opportunity to interview. We talked a little bit about my goals and interests. Afterward I spoke with my current supervisor about the company and its goals. During this first in person interview I was asked to talk about my previous work, views on User Experience Design and what apps I considered "good design." Next I completed a design challenge and then had another in person interview to go over my design process with the design team. In the final interview, I had a QA session with the CEO.

    The process was fair. Nothing surprising. But at the time I think the team was developing their hiring process, so I did feel like some of the questions were redundant. I guess that goes back to "how you say things" is more important than "what you say."

    Interview Questions
    • After completing my design challenge I thought the conversation would revolve around that. Instead the team asked me to go over an older project. I've been involved in later hires and this hasn't happened again.   Answer Question

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fuze in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I loved everyone I met with, but the interview went a lot longer than I had hoped. However, I can't complain because I met the CEO, all the other executives, and individual contributors. It's clear the people were smart, but they didn't know how to run an effective interview process. It was pretty disjointed. That has changed since then because they have a real recruiting team now. The questions were pretty standard for a Recruiter interview, and they wanted to get a feel for how I've worked with managers in the past and what sort of best practices I would bring.

    Interview Questions
    • None stood out. It was a pretty standard Recruiter interview. The part that I appreciated was that they were thorough in evaluating me. A lot of other companies I interviewed with didn't spend nearly as much time with me.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fuze in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    very difficult company to get selected to join. They hire only "A" players. They only want the best and they hold people accountable. I love it because it's a team of people who have drive and who make things happen. You have to get through at least 7 managers to get accepted. any one manager can vote no and then you don't get the job.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fuze in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview was scheduled by my recruiter. My first interview was with the VP Sales in person at their office. She also had me interview with the Director of Inside Sales that same day. The VP Sales works very closely with and I would say has a mentor/adviser type of relationship with the Director of Inside Sales. You want to be on both of their good sides. They work very closely together. I had another phone conversation with the VP Sales to dig a little deeper into my past experience and more strategy discussion. The next step was an interview with the CEO (VP of Sales is married to the CEO). This is not something that was disclosed until I accepted the position but I feel is something they should tell you in advance. The CEO interview was making sure you understand the vision of the company and his expectations of you. Basically he meets with you and then gives the final yes or no to the VP of Sales before she makes an offer. I received an offer letter via email from the VP of Sales. I received it on a Friday and was given until close of business the following Monday to accept or decline.

    I did have a couple of questions and she did not answer my calls or respond to my emails in a timely matter that day so I accepted the offer as-is. I would encourage you to be diligent and even if she is not responding I would wait until she acknowledges you have questions before accepting an offer.
