WET Design Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Manufacturing Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at WET Design in April 2010.
Interview Details – Over done. Way to complicated for the simple position I have. Questions were asked by non technical people and were not relevent. Some questions came from a screaming HR manager
Negotiation Details – None
Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at WET Design in February 2014.
Interview Details – Sent my resume 2 times, haven't heard anything for about a month until one day got a call from their in-house recruiter. After a brief phone interview got invited for an interview in the office. Was told to bring a presentation that highlights my experience, education and skills. Was interviewed by 3 people - CEO, Software Architect and a recruiter. They asked relevant questions about each slide. I also had all my questions answered and the interview took twice longer than expected (a good sign!). I think for this company personality and being able to fit is more important than going through a list of technical questions.
Got a call next day with an offer.
Interview Question – Name several companies I admire. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was not a negotiation part, since they asked me how much I want to make and matched my request.
Talent Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at WET Design.
Interview Details – I went through a 2 step process. First I met with my would be boss and discussed the opportunity. During the 2 hours, I began to fall in love, and by the end of the conversation, I was ready to say "I do". Second, I met with the Team, and for me, the deal was sealed. I immediately felt a warmth from the environment and this put me at ease. I almost felt like an honored guest that was invited over for an intimate dinner and cocktails, and received the "red carpet" treatment. During my interviews, I was also introduced to other employers and what impressed me the most is the friendly disposition everyone had and their huge smiles. Finally, the tour sent me over the top. If you drive by the building, one would never know the magic that takes place here... come for a tour and your will never want to leave!
Interview Question – I cannot think of anything that stumped or derailed me.... The level of passion and commitment that I had to join WET was so high, that it was not going to matter anyways. I knew that WET was my final career-destination and all I had to do is pass along this sensation/ emotion to anyone/everyone that I met with and burn them with my desire. Also, the fact that I had the right skills and character needed for the job, did not hurt either! View Answer
Negotiation Details – 5 minutes. They knew what I was worth and I did not have to "toot" my horn too much!

Designer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university - interviewed at WET Design in April 2013.
Interview Details – Came to my school graduation show. Met with the design director and one hr person. Gave me a call next day for an interview. Had an interview with the vp and a designer.

Interview Question – If i wanted to work at wet. - bc I have never heard of the company until after the interview. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Product Development Engineer Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at WET Design.
Interview Details – It was hardly an interview. At the time they were basically grabbing people off the street and putting them to work. I spoke to one person in HR, who basically just got my vitals and then one manager (although not my manager). I showed them a website with some of my work on it and that was it.
Interview Question – Again, there was very little screening. I probably could have told them I had no idea what I was doing and they would have hired me (this might explain some of the people I eventually worked with). Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Absolutely no negotiation, HR set the price and showed the door to the street and the door to the office.
Administrative Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at WET Design in February 2012.
Interview Details – There were several interviews that took place over the course of three weeks, as well as several writing assignments. Great communication was kept with the head of HR through email and phone; then was offered the position.
Interview Question – Most questions were fairly reasonable and related to the positions requirements. I was lucky in that aspect that nothing was from left field. Answer Question
