    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Xoom (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had read that several people thought the interview process was overly lengthy or difficult, I must disagree. Yes it was 3+ hours, but considering the size of the company and the fact that you get interviewed by several leaders of various teams I didn't consider it unreasonable at all, plus they hooked me up with snacks :)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Xoom (San Francisco, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    This was the first time I worked with a 3rd party recruiter that actually was a help. Padraig at CV Partners is awesome. Had a phone interview with the hiring manager then came in for 6 inperson interviews with members of different areas of IT. All were really pleasant and while it was a long 3 hour process it gave me a good feel for the company.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about database security which was out of my scope of experience. No specific questions other than what would I do to improve DB security. Wasn't really a screening question other than to see how I think.   Answer Question

    I was able to tell Padraig what amount was a lock.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    The interviewing manager was quite friendly, but extremely unprepared when she called me for my first and only interview. After exchanging greetings, she apologized for being late to make the call and then asked me to wait while she reviewed my resume! She said she needed to recall what questions she had planned to ask.

    • Once organized, she proceeded to ask very specific questions about a project I had worked on almost ten years prior.   Answer Question
