Customer Care Interview

Customer Care
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Squarespace.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume on their website and heard back within a day or so (they were extremely prompt throughout the entire process). I was asked to do a video Q&A/v-log type thing, where I was asked to record myself answering three questions (Why Squarespace? What is hospitality? Favorite 90's Jam?). Each video gave you 30 seconds of prep-time, then 30-60 seconds to record your answer and you only get one shot at it.

A few days later I was asked to come in for an interview with two people, both of whom were really great. They mostly just wanted to know about you as a person, things like your skills, your hobbies and interests, that kind of thing.

Less than a week later I received a call back with an offer, which I was absolutely thrilled to accept.

Interview Question – What did you find the most difficult when you were using Squarespace?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, they tell you what the pay will be ahead of time.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Squarespace in May 2014.

Interview Details – The process started with a video "interview," in which I had to record answers to several standard interview questions. A week later, they followed up with a typing test and several written questions. A week after that, they invited me into the office for an in-person interview. It seemed to go well, and they promised to get back to me within a few days. Finally, after one more week went by, they sent me a form e-mail "declining to proceed" with my candidacy.

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Squarespace in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and received an e-mail the next day with more information on the position and an opportunity for a Skype interview.

My interviewer called my phone instead, which wasn't a problem, but it was slightly confusing, as I had been waiting for 20 minutes on Skype. After the phone interview, I moved onto an online skills assessment. From there, the recruiter offered me an opportunity to interview in person at the office. Unfortunately, they rescheduled twice because of conflicts on their end. It's understandable that things come up, but I had to wonder if the whole process was unorganized or if this was just the case for me.

During my in-person interview, I met with the person who had interviewed me via phone as well as one of his colleagues. He asked nearly the same questions in-person as he did on the phone, which surprised me slightly, as I'd already gone into great detail on the phone. He didn't seem to remember anything that we chatted about on the phone. I know he must interview a lot of people, but in the future, notes would be helpful.

A week after the interview, I received an e-mail saying that Squarespace had decided no to move forward with my candidacy.

Interview Question – What makes you unique? With which breed of dog do you most associate? What is your favorite holiday and why? As you've been at your current position for such a short time, what makes you certain that you won't leave us after only a short time?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Squarespace in May 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online in March and they reached out via email to let me know that they were interested, but their Portland office was in the process of getting set up. A month later I was contacted to do a video interview. The vlog was three questions with 60 seconds prep and 30 seconds to answer the questions. A lot harder than I expected it to be. Not the questions, but the talking to no one and recording yourself part.

After a couple of weeks I was asked to take an online assessment. I was familiar with Squarespace, so it wasn't too difficult. Many questions and scenarios regarding how you would solve workplace disputes and then a section on using the platform itself. It was about a week and a half later that I was contacted to schedule an in-person interview.

The workplace is super casual. My interviewers were in denim, khakis, a t-shirt, and a casual button up. Definitely speaks to the tech culture. Regular interview questions asking about my customer service background followed up by a more casual section. It went really well.

I was contacted by the end of the week and have accepted the position.

Interview Question – How do you know that you have been successful in your current position?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Hourly wage was non-negotiable. Was actually stated in the email before my in-person interview.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Squarespace.

Interview Details – The company seems to be growing pretty rapidly and are currently undergoing a mass hire. I found their ad on Craigslist and sent my cover letter and and resume via Jobvite. I received a response via Jobvite asking to do a video interview. I logged on and answered three questions. I should note that this wasn't a Skype interview, it was similar to creating a vlog. About a week or so after that I received an email from someone at Squarespace asking to me complete an online assessment due in 24 hours. It took me about 3 hours. They generally want to see how much you know about the product and how you would interact with customers and potential co-workers. I then received an email a few days later asking to come in for a face to face interview. I met with one of the training coordinators and the scheduling coordinator. They asked basic interview questions, followed by more personal questions, such as "What's your favorite genre of music?" " What was the last album you listened to in it's entirety?"

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Squarespace.

Interview Details – My experience began with being contacted by a recruiter. We had set up a time to interview and I was told I would be contacted by phone by someone in that department. When the time for the interview came, I never received a call. I then followed up the recruiter and attempted to reschedule. I never received a response. I waited until the next week and followed up a second time and received a reply to set up an interview with the recruiter instead. Once on the phone with the recruiter, I was told several excuses for why I never received the first call from the original interviewer which I felt was very unprofessional.

The interview went very well. The recruiter I spoke with was very nice and provided a lot of good information about the company and the industry.

Once the interview was over I was told we would set up an interview with the original interviewer at some point in the next 2 weeks if they decided to move forward. I followed up 2 weeks later after not hearing back, and got no response. I waited another week and followed up again, and finally got a response saying they were not going to move forward with any additional interviews.

Interview Question – All questions were very general interview questions. Nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

I applied online - interviewed at Squarespace in January 2014.

Interview Details – A week after sending the CV, I was asked to tape a video interview. Two questions of 1 minute each ("Why would I like to work with them?" "What does customer care mean to me?") and a third question of 15 seconds: "what's my nineties favourite pop song?". It's been a week and I haven't heard from them. Let's hope for the best!

Interview Question – It wasn't difficult. They have asked all the basics question and also some behavioral questions.   Answer Question
