WePay Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Customer Service Representative Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at WePay in April 2013.
Interview Details – Took 2 days. Interviewer was very rude and caustic. Did not enjoy. Would not recommend this company. Also interviewer seemed like she didn't have time for me. Didn't call me on time either
Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at WePay in April 2013.
Interview Details – Was asked questions related to data structures, algorithms, and designing a system. Be sure that to test your code after writing a solution. Also, I think I gave some answers that were functionally correct, but may not have been the most optimal solutions. Some solutions have faster running times or use less memory.
Interview Question – I don't it's right for me to describe a specific question. I think a good way to prepare is to review data structures and algorithms. There are also websites with example interview problems. Definite practice lots of problems before coming to the interview. Answer Question
Engineering Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at WePay in October 2011.
Interview Details – I applied online, and received an email regarding times I would be available for a phone interview. After a few emails back and forth, a phone interview was setup the same day. The initial phone interview lasted approximately an hour and I was invited to interview on-site the following day.
The on-site interview started with lunch, and then moved into a series of one-on-one interviews with various members in the development team, lasting a total of five hours. During a break, I bumped into the CEO and had a brief conversation with him. He was very nice, and reflected the laid-back work culture I observed.
Very Difficult Interview
Customer Service Interview (Negative Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at WePay in December 2011.
Interview Details – I applied on-line and was given what sounded like a very positive phone screen. I was then emailed about coming in for an in person interview a few days later. The interview was pretty intense. I was given some training and told to respond to customer service scenarios. I later spoke with a person who just came back from being out sick (I fell ill a couple of days later). All in all I was there for over 2.5 hours. Never offered water. I was so parched (and in need of a bathroom!) that I stopped at the first market possible for water. I was told that they would get back to me within a week. It's been about a month now and I'm still waiting for a response. My emails have been ignored. Is it that hard to say "no"? I used to be a big evangelist for them, not anymore!
