    Interview

    Initial communication was with a recruiter at a job fair who pushed me to apply online. I was selected for an on-site interview soon after where we also learned about the company as a group. (Most candidates were UCSC students.) Company culture was very diverse as they mentioned they hired people of all ages and it showed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at 8x8 (San Jose, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    First screening call with recruiter and than telephonic coding interview using collabedit.
    In the screening recruiter said that I am great match for the job position due to my experience in the field and they were exactly looking for my kind of skill-set.
    In the coding interview with hiring manager over collabedit, I was able to code exactly what was required (can say text book answer) and gave answers to all questions that were asked. There was no moment in the interview where the manager had to give hints or said that I had to correct something.
    Still, on the next day I received email saying that we are looking for specific kind of skills and not moving forward with the application.
    Really,,? Are you CONFUSED people??? Why did you waste my and your time?

    2. Call with recruiter
    3. Phone screen with engineer

    Interview
    Interviewer was rude. No 2 way communication or discussion regarding the question he asked or solution I provided.

    Asked me 2 programming questions, went silent, putting me on hold. Cut the interview short, without providing any clues, after I was struggling at one point.

    Glad I did not get any further in the process as I would not have liked working with such colleagues!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at 8x8 (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interviewed with management in three separate meetings across about 12 weeks. Came back and met with the same group on two separate occassions. The meetings were cordial and informative. The more I met with the team, the more open they were about how they saw the role fit into the overall business.

    Interview

    recruiter and hiring team seemed to be out of sync the entire process. passed phone interview. continued onto on-site interview. seemed to go well as they indicated they wanted move to the next step of meeting with a VP. made lots of effort to schedule this next step, but they kept stalling and making excuses. ultimately, they passed with no apparent reason why...had poor experience with entire interview process - the recruiters are not very professional and timely with their follow-up - wonder if its a reflection of their leadership and engineering staff...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at 8x8.

    Interview

    I reached out to a senior manager and had a great conversation. He indicated that he will have a recruiter contact me for next steps. Rest of the process was pretty typical - late or no follow-up, lack of communication and knowledge of the role and process, no respect for the candidate, and no indication of where I stand in the interview process. They have changed the job title 3 times in the last 2.5 months and keep on re-posting the job with the same description.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at 8x8 (Sunnyvale, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very loose and comfortable. Culture seems really nice, but not sure about managing style. May be a micromanaged postion. Everyone was friendly from the girl up front to the management team (that I met)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at 8x8 (San Jose, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with hiring manager, asked to assess website and give a presentation in person during next on-site interview. Then was asked to put a marketing plan together. Came back and presented to a few of senior staff. They liked it and asked me to come back again to present the same thing to other executives. Went in, everyone was happy, even met the CEO. After that, they asked for me to dive deeper into the plan to tell them how I would go about executing it. Absolutely ridiculous. I'm not up for free consulting. I pulled out of the interview process.

    Interview

    Great process. Got a call from recruiter who did a phone screen (15 mins). 3 days later first onsite interview with 2 managers. Went over my resume and asked fair questions, nothing tricky. Very transparent. 5 days later met with higher executives. Had a very natural conversation. Very smart people and fun to talk to. No presure if you know what your doing and are able to hold a conversation. 2 days later asked to submit background. 5 days later, got an offer and was given a chance to give 2 weeka notice. All in all, very good process from start to finish.
