    UI Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Zynga in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process was very pleasant, but that situation probably has changed now as the company was at the very height of its prosperity when I joined, and since then has changed dramatically.

    The hardest part was once the Zynga recruiter contacted me, I just had to stay on him with lots of continued contact to keep him pushing the process forward.

    I learned that having a company recruiter contact you is the 2nd best way to get employed somewhere (having a personal contact working there is the 1st).

    Interview Questions
    • None really. Most was straight forward. The company seems to enjoy those who have a variety of skills rather than mastery of just one.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I initially asked for a lot more than what my previous job paid, but they met me more in the middle, but as a bonus gave shares of stock... which at the time seemed like a good deal with a lot of potential... I wouldn't take stock at this point.
