    User Experience Designer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a weekinterviewed at WeddingWire.

    Interview Details

    I had a very pleasant call with HR, who then set up an in-person interview. When I got there, I was given a tour of the office and then was sat in an empty conference room where I waited for the first set of interviewers to come in (design leadership). They asked me a series of questions related to visual design, not much on the UX end. After that interview was over, I was interviewed by a QA analyst and project manager. The project manager helped me understand their process—the PMs do all the wireframing, flow definition and user research and then hand everything off to the UX team (which I thought was odd). I was then interviewed by a member of the engineering team, and then by the CTO, whose questions felt more like a quiz than an actual interview (asked me if i was familiar with a long list of apps, then what their function is, and how they earn revenue, for example). I received an offer within two days, which I turned down.

    Reasons for Declining

    The UX designers are not treated as UX designers—it's much more focused on visual design and light interaction design work in a distinctly waterfall process.

    Phone Interview that lasted twenty minutes. Basic walk me through your resume and telling the interviewer a little bit about yourself. The interviewer will also ask why you chose WeddingWire and what is it about WeddingWire that interests you. Another part of the phone interview included discussing why you would be a good fit for the job. Make sure you orient your past experience to sales particularly.

    Data Scientist/Statistician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at WeddingWire in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    There was a quick phone screen, followed by an email questionnaire to assess my familiarity and skill level with marketing data. I submitted my answers promptly then didn't hear back. When I followed up it turned out they had lost my application. Maybe this was a one time thing, but it demonstrates a certain lack of organization.

    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at WeddingWire in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted approx. one week later. Was provided a general overview of the job and requirements. Although I was not necessarily seeking a inside sales position, I went forward with the interview process (because you never know if another position may be offered or if it was more than initially thought. Plus, who doesn't like interview practice?). To put all in retrospect, I have been in sales for 4+ years and was just looking for new opportunities. Who wouldn't want to sell to wedding vendors?

    Interviewed with 4 managers. Very quick questioning with no connection/small talk (except for 1). I quickly got the vibe that they didn't truly care about me, my past experience or how that qualifies me for the position. I could imagine them saying, "Oh great another interview..." before walking in. It all felt robotic. Like they just wanted another warm body. The questions, for the most part, were horrible. I don't understand how you can judge a person and their qualifications based on the questions I was asked.

    Concluded the interview and sent follow up Thank You notes to everyone. I am surprised this company has such great ratings online based on my interview. Didn't receive an offer...which I would have turned down anyway.

    Interview Questions
    • "Love to win or hate to lose?"; "If you were a car, what would you be and why?"; "If I were to call your manager, what would they say you need to work on?"; and a cliche role play.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at WeddingWire in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    It is a very thorough interview process; do as much research as you can. I did an initial phone screen, did a Google Hangout with 3 managers, and a mock phone pitch. I'm not sure what they're exactly looking for - it might be sales reps with similar functions such as those from Yelp. Nonetheless, it is a tiring interview and at the end you're not even sure if you want the job - you just want the job because of how tiring it is.

    I followed up with Thank You notes and even contacted currently employees via LinkedIn for insight on the company. It does seem like a company truly invested in it's employees. I was interviewing for a position in Long Beach, so I'm unsure if this regional location has the same company culture.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you hate to lose or love to win? What would your manager say about you? When is a time when you didn't meet expectations? What actor/actress would star in your own movie?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at WeddingWire.

    Interview Details

    I first applied to WeddingWire for a sales position on a Friday. I was contacted by email on Monday for a phone interview scheduled for Tuesday. During the phone interview, it was assessed that I was more interested in a customer success role, which had just opened up. During that phone interview I was asked standard questions about my job experience, customer service and sales. An in-person interview was scheduled for that coming Friday. I arrived Friday morning and proceeded to have 3 interviews with 2 people at a time in the Customer Success division. Everyone was extremely friendly and interested in what I had to say. They all asked about my experience and each group pinpointed different elements on my resume that were relevant to customer service. I was contacted later that day saying they had an offer for me.

    Interview Questions
    • We did some sales/customer service role play.
      What is work word you would describe for excellent customer relations? (I said respect)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at WeddingWire in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the next day I received an email about setting a time for a 10-20 minute phone interview. The recruiter forgot about my phone interview and I had to email her to remind her that she missed our scheduled time to talk. After the phone interview, the recruiter asked that I come in the next day for an in-person interview. During the in-person interview, I interviewed with four different managers individually. Each interview was about 15-20 minutes long. Typical interview questions about my qualifications and why WeddingWire. One of the managers was very standoffish and seemed disinterested in our conversation, which was a huge turnoff for me. I was emailed the next day that after a review of my qualifications they felt my qualifications didn't match their requirements - even though my qualifications matched what one of the managers told me would be their ideal candidate. So i'm not really sure who/what they're truly looking for in their candidates.

    Applied online. A HR recruiter called for an initial phone screen. The questions were standard. Showing that you have done your research about the company is important. The recruiter asked me to scale 1-10 about several of my skills. The process took about 20 minutes.
