    Customer Analytics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Shutterfly in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, I was contacted for an initial screening with HR. This was done over the phone. They let me know they would schedule a follow-up interview at the end, this time with the person who would be the supervised in the position. That interview lasted longer and wasn't too technical. It was more about bigger ideas of the project. This was also done on the phone, and at the end, I knew a follow-up would be scheduled.

    The last interview was a one-on-one in person interview and it was more technical. The technical aspect wasn't what I was used to where it is like a test. It was more conversational. Overall, people were very friendly and even though I didn't get an offer, a positive experience.

    Interview Questions
    • This is hard to answer. Few questions had one right answer. So it was more like talking while trying to read reactions, which was a bit challenging.   Answer Question

    Special Projects Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Shutterfly in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview communications arranged through the staffing agency, and scheduled by email. Only two interviewers and a small panel of three at the end. My perception of the people who interviewed me was very good. Casual office atmosphere and work culture... typical high-tech cubical environment. Although the company was in transition of moving some of its operations to Charlotte, NC and with this some disgruntled employees who were undecided about their own move, made it difficult to work there. However, overall everyone was very nice.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Shutterfly in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted to come in for an interview. Originally I was scheduled to meet with 2 people and the manager. I met with one rep and the manager. I came in with a copy of my resume and the interview schedule. The representative I met with was professional. She had 5 interview questions on a piece of paper. I thought the interview had gone well until I met the manager. The manager appeared very unfriendly-she did not smile or make eye contact. The interview with her only lasted about 10 minutes. I got the feeling she decided not to hire me as soon as she walked in the door, even though I was asked questions like "This position will move very quickly-when can you start?". Subsequently I did not hear back from TinyPrints, even after sending an email to inquire about the status of the position, which is now marked as "closed" on the JobVite site. I would not recommend this company to others. Pay is very low and there was mention of having to work 7 days a week during the holiday season.
