    Software Test Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Luis Obispo, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Luis Obispo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MINDBODY in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I went through four interview processes: phone, on-site with a panel of 3, a second on-site with a panel of 3, and a last on-site with a panel of 2. Everyone was friendly, welcoming, and had great sense of humor. They made me feel at ease while at the same time challenging me with their questions. The entire process took about a month from the day I applied to my last interview--it was long but when they kept bringing me back for more interviews, it made me feel good knowing they were still interested! As many have mentioned before, the interviews felt more like a conversation which really put me at ease and enabled me to answer without letting my nerves get the best of me. During my last interview, I was tested on my technical and thinking skills. Overall, it was the most fun I've ever had interviewing, that's for sure!

    Implementation Coach Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at MINDBODY.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position in November on JobVite and didn't hear anything until the beginning of January. I'm not a fan of posting job openings if you aren't hiring, but grateful for a call back no matter how late. I scheduled (on-line) a phone interview and then was told I made it to the next interview on the phone. I went to an on-site interview with 2 women who made me feel very comfortable, not nervous at all. Then I was e-mailed 2 days later that I got a final interview. I went to the office and met with the manager of the department. I really enjoyed my interview and felt very confident when leaving. I got my e-mail with the offer 4 days after the final interview. All in all it was a very positive experience and the people I came in contact with throughout the process were fantastic and made me want to work there even more than I already did. It was a long process though. From application to job offer it was about a two and a half month process. It was quite the ordeal but well worth the wait.

    Product Manager Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at MINDBODY.

    Interview Details

    A little strange. Flew from Vermont to California for the interview. Met with hiring manager in a group setting. Given how far I'd come it seemed strange that I wouldn't have a one-on-one meeting with him. He was supposed to come to lunch but didn't and never sent word or apologies for not making it. The whole thing put a bad taste in my mouth.

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at MINDBODY.

    Interview Details

    After applying, I received an email to schedule an interview, and the recruiter was very professional and friendly. There was a small miscommunication about the interview time, as she had said it would be at 1PM, but the Google event request indicated 4PM. I was initially worried that she had the times wrong, but then read that it was at 4PM Atlantic time, so I encourage anyone else applying to make sure that their Google date and timezone preferences are correct.

    The first interview phone call began promptly at 1:01pm (longest minute of my life - I was just excited/nervous) and she made me feel at ease by explaining what MINDBODY did and asked me why I wanted to work there. Not a hard question - I had been thinking about it for a long time. She told me that she loved working at MINDBODY and enjoyed the work environment. She then asked me what my work history was and how it related to UX and she pushed me further and asked what I was doing now as a front-end developer to try to remain "user-focused". All of her questions seemed to be constructive, and it made talking a lot easier. All of the questions were normal, and did not delve deeply into UX specific questions. The interview lasted around 20 minutes, and was definitely more of a preliminary interview, as my next interview was with one of the managers.

    He was also extremely friendly, and introduced the interview by telling me about himself and his work experience, and how he appreciates the team structure at MINDBODY. He asked similar questions from the first interview, "tell me about you" type of questions. I showed him some current work and exactly what my thought processes were, and he was very receptive and even gave me some great feedback on what I could think about to make it even more user-friendly. He asked very specific questions about UX processes and skills, and I tried to include them in my descriptions of my work. He asked me if I had any questions, and I asked about the work flow process within and across teams, about the software and the differences between the mobile software, as well as the business-view and client-view software differences, and his answers were very informative. We ended up speaking for an hour, maybe because I had a million and a half questions, but I didn't realize that we went over 30 minutes.

    All in all, I really enjoyed the interview process, but was not selected. It was a very positive experience, which made being rejected so unfortunate because now I am left wanting to work there even more. I will definitely make my work portfolio better in the coming months, and try to develop new projects because I suspect that one of the reasons I wasn't selected was because I didn't have enough.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions felt too difficult, and if they were difficult I probably shouldn't have been applying for the job. I suspect that difficult and unexpected questions would have been during the onsite interview, had I gone further.   Answer Question

    Implementation Coach Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at MINDBODY in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I first applied to MINDBODY at the end of August (8/20/14) for the Implementation Coach position. I continued to follow up through JobVite & email. I attempted several times to go into the actual building to follow up on my application, but they weren't able to do anything in person, as correspondence with them was all electronic. After several attempts of following up electronically, I received an email for my first phone interview on 10/16/14. I followed up two weeks later to check n my application & was informed the two positions they were looking to fill didn't need filling anymore. I continued to apply for any and all positions I would have the qualifications for. I had another phone interview for Administrative Support on 12/15/14. Both phone interviews were fun & laid back. The phone interview is to get to know you & see if you're a good fit for the position/company. On 12/23/14 I received an email for an in-house interview for Implementation Coach. To prepare for the interview, you must prepare a statement as why you would be a good fit for the position, as well as give a brief demonstration on the software as if you're coaching a client in how to use it. They provided the links to the demo site & a link for a 'How-To' video demonstration. The in-house interview went well, the questions were more get-to-know you type questions as well as situation-type questions. I had asked what happened to the last person to hold the position, and one left to be with her boyfriend in San Francisco (she was waiting to find a job & just found one) & the other went back to her previous company because they offered her more money (This is most likely the reason why I didn't get past the first phone interview). The final interview was with the Implementation Manager on 1/7/15. He had his set questions, but presented it in more of a conversation rather that question/answer type responses. I received the email offer on 1/14/15 & my first day with the company is on 2/2/15. I am very excited to join the team. Even though the process took a bit of time, it was all well worth it as I have been wanting to work for MINDBODY for several years.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question for me were client/software related questions. I had spent some time researching & practicing on the demo site, but it was a bit difficult to answer a hypothetical client question when I didn't know all of the policies/procedures of the company. Do your best & say what you feel is correct.   Answer Question

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Luis Obispo, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Luis Obispo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at MINDBODY in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Started off with a 30 min phone call with one of mindbody's technical recruiters. We went over the basic questions like my experience, my current salary, target salary and why I'm looking to leave my current job. After passing the phone interview next up was the Skype interview with 3 of the employees from the software development team. I only spoke with 2 of the three scheduled (not sure what happened to the third but we never met) but the interview went very well and included some basic programming questions.

    For the next round, I was assigned a programming assignment which involved the use of their soap api and was given about a week to complete it. After completing the assignment the final step in the process was to do an in person interview with the director of product management and get a tour of the building.

    The interview with the director of product management went well and the tour was great. Mindbody has a great work environment and seem to promote a good work/life balance. I was very impressed.

    Reasons for Declining

    I didn't realize it at the time but apparently they viewed me as more of a Junior software developer than a senior. I'm currently a senior software engineer and have 4 yrs of experience (will be 5 in April of this year) and was told that their Senior developers typically have 5-7 years of experience. But I was assured that I would most likely move up after a year and a pay increase that would put me near what I'm making now. They offered me a software engineer role at $4k less than what I'm currently making which isn't a huge deal considering their excellent benefits package which would have made up the difference but losing my title in addition was a little to much for me to give up in addition to me relocating to San Luis Obispo. I felt like I was being asked to hit the reset button on my career. Sometimes you do have to take a small step backwards to love forwards but I couldn't do it. Also my case was a little unique in that I have kids and wife to worry about which complicates things a little bit. If it was just me I probably would have taken it as I'm unhappy where I'm at now. I told them that if they still have a Senior position available when I'm at the 5 year mark I would like to reapply. It's a great company and I think anyone who gets that job will definitely be happy. It just wasn't a good fit for both sides at this particular time.

    Interview Details

    I applied and was contacted for a phone interview about a week later. The interview was pretty simple. Then I had 2 in person interviews, the first with team leaders and the second, with my supervisor. Some practicing was to be done hands on with the software before the first interview but was covered briefly and is little indication of how well you will operate on the job. The interview with my supervisor was pretty casual and laid back, not bad to be a scary process
