Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

Interviewed at The Zappos Family

Interview Details – I went through a full day interview process, with 2-3 people interviewing per hour. There were logic questions, coding on whiteboard (algorithms and SQL), and design questions. There were a couple slots where it was just general questions and talking about previous projects, which was a nice break from having to code all the time. They also throw in a culture interview with the HR rep at some point in the day as well.

Interview Question – Interesting unexpected questions to see if you're a "culture fit"   Answer Question

Analyst Interview

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process is quite lengthy. Almost two months after I first applied for the position, I was asked to take a virtual interview. There were only four questions and the ones asked were somewhat ridiculous and had little to do with the job for which I had applied.

Interview Question – Tell us something amusing about yourself.   Answer Question

Marketing Interview

Marketing

Interviewed at The Zappos Family

Interview Details – Be honest and be yourself. No BS! Zappos hires based on core values so you cant or shouldnt prepare for that. If the whole team is interviewing you thats a good sign, but they will all have to like you and think you will fit on the team. Honestly. its a win win. Most candidates arent a fit but if you are someone that wants to work there and they want to hire you, they will.. If you dont get the job you probably wouldnthave been a fit for the role and the team. Keep trying.

Interview Question – If you were a superhero what would you be?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Cant recall
