    Arduous personal background check. Had to go to Notary 3 times since HR didn't know how govt. forms should be filled out and each worker in HR had a different idea on how to accomplish the task. My folder has 3 W9 forms.

    Director of Data Warehouse Interview Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Glendale, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Glendale, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at LegalZoom.com in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    First spoke with the HR person then with two engineers over the phone. Got invited for an in-house interview. Spoke with 4 developers and a product manager. Did not have a chance to meet any senior leadership like a VP or a Sr. Director. Whole interview took 3 hours and was quite intense. The overall feeling: either they are picking your brains on how to tweak their MS db engine into a normal EDW or to report that they exhausted all local candidates so that they can bring someone they really want on an H1 visa from overseas. No managerial or leadership style questions. I agree with the other candidate: something does not look right here.

    Director of Data Warehouse Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Glendale, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Glendale, CA

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at LegalZoom.com in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was very apparent during the interview that the people at Legalzoom do not know what they are looking for. They are a MSFT shop that needs to move to a more advanced platform (Oracle, Nettezza, etc.) When ever I provided a solution they were taking notes and very soon I was under the impression they were picking my brain for information rather than conducting a serious interview. Later I found out that I was participating in the fourth round of interviews. Apparently that already interviewed over 40 people (fourth round of interviewees) and never made an offer. Do not take this client seriously. They are simply picking your brain for information and have no intention of hiring you.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at LegalZoom.com in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Received an email for a phone screen. Spoke to the recruiter on April 17th. Seems the interview was one sided where I asked most of the questions. The only question the recruiter asked is what do I know about the company. No feedback after I sent weekly reminders.

    Business Customer Care Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at LegalZoom.com.

    Interview Details

    Was hired through a placement agency. Was told to be expected to go from temp worker to permanent hire within 3 months. Ended up actually being a year before LZ made me permanent. (My placement agency had no idea why it took so long, especially since my employee evaluations were excellent. Possibly it was because the company was spending a lot of money on the new Austin location and new Glendale relocation. Hopefully that is no longer the case.)

    Interview Questions
    • Your typical interview questions. Such as "Describe a situation when you went above and beyond for a customer."   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    What was weird was that I had a great interview but was initially not offered a position through my placement agency. Then 3 months later, I got a call back that LZ did want me after all. The few people who were hired over me in the first round of interviews actually ended up being let go a few months later, so I'm not sure why they made the cut first over me.

    Customer Support Manager Interview

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

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at LegalZoom.com in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Strangest interview I've ever had. The hiring manager interviewed me for over an hour and I only got out a few sentences. She talked almost the whole time about what a horrible place it had become to work and how frustrating and incompetent here directors, VPs and other manager were.
    Being unemployed, I took the job. She was absolutely right. What a nightmare of a work environment with incompetent and uncaring Directors an VP level managers.

    Negotiation Details
    I gave a salary range and explained that at the low end I would expect options and a bonus. The offered below my low end wit no options. I laughed and they came back with a token number of options and a bonus plan. After getting the offer letter, no bonus was mentioned. I was told that the bonus could not be put in writing.

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took a day - interviewed at LegalZoom.com in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Received word through my staffing agency that they needed to interview some people for a customer service job. Was told that I'd speak with at least three people, then take an English proficiency exam. Interviewed with one manager and then was told to take the exam: ultimately I thought I had failed the interview. As it turns out they liked me off the bat and didn't want to waste any more time seeing if they liked me or not.

    Negotiation Details
    I went through a staffing agency, so all financial matters were handled through them.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at LegalZoom.com in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted within one day to setup a telephone interview for later that day. During the telephone interview I was told that my resume would be passed on to the manager of the department and if I qualified I would then have a 1:1 interview. The next day I was contacted for a formal interview. I had two interviews back-to-back. The process was the usual.
