    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Mozilla in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an excellent interview experience. My recruiting coordinator did a very great job at follow-up, and made sure I was very well informed. I was asked to come in for an on-site interview, and had a great time speaking with the whole team. The only part of my interview experience that did not go as well was when I interviewed with one of their senior recruiters. At the end of the interview, they had mentioned that they will move forth with me. The next day, I received a rejection email. I don't mind not receiving the job, but it was a little disheartening thinking that I had received the job, when in fact I was still in the selection process.

    Recruiter Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Mozilla in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    A phone interview followed by a 2.5 hour face to face interview. I was asked to meet with a separate team as there were two available roles. Although I felt the interviews went well as I was well prepared, I could tell one of the managers did not like one of my answers and thought it too 'recruiter-y'. The role description was vague and the team was also a big vague on what they were looking for. All interviewers were very friendly albeit a bit unorganized.

    Editorial Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Long interviews and very detail oriented. Asked for ideas several times during interview so be prepared. Digs deep into your past positions and seeks to see how they relate to the job at hand. Sometimes questions about other hobbies or interests may come up. Some of the team is based internationally so you may need to schedule phone interviews early in the morning or later in the evening. Pleasant interview experience.

    Web Developer Internship Interview

    Interview Details

    I applied online, then emailed a recruiter who's email I got from a friend. They responded within a week, then scheduled me for an interview via Skype. This interview was mostly just basic web questions, with a bit on my personal projects and why I made the decisions I did. After that, I was asked back for a second interview, which was much more focused around my projects, which decisions I made, and why I made them. The last part of that interview were technical questions regarding the programming language I would be using there. Finally, I talked with the team lead, which was very laid back, and I got to ask a bunch of questions about the company. A few days later I received an email with offer information.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions I had were related to why I made certain design decisions in my projects, and what I'd do to improve them.   Answer Question
