    Writer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Addepar.

    Interview

    To begin with, the process was fairly routine and went smoothly. The initial phone screen with HR was easy and led to a second phone screen within a week. The second person who interviewed me was professional, polite, and asked the standard questions for technical writing interviews. Unfortunately, Addepar seems uninterested in filling the role. They eventually sent me a rejection letter stating they had decided to hire another candidate. This was obviously misleading since as of this day the role remains unfilled. I recently met another applicant who encountered the very same issue with them regarding a different job. Human Resources should exercise better judgment when responding to job applicants and avoid creating confusion.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Addepar.

    Interview

    Applied online, contacted for a first round phone interview in mid-October. Interview was scheduled for early November. During the interview, I easily passed the question and the interviewer complimented my performance as being better than most other people. Got a rejection email a few days later saying that it was a tough decision but they had decided to not move forward. Still very puzzled about their decision, and they wouldn't provide feedback either.

    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Addepar (Mountain View, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. Four days later, I did a phone interview, which was a standard first interview that I don’t remember much about. I was invited to interview on campus two weeks later, and they scheduled my in-person interview a week after that. All in all it took less than a month from when I applied online until I received my interview results. I appreciate that they hustled.

    The onsite interview was a kinetic day where they wanted demonstrations of my capabilities. It started with a 30-minute product demonstration, then five 45-minute sessions where I wrote new feature documentation, edited UI text, translated bug fixes into everyday language, and edited with another technical writer.

    Here’s what they did right: I liked their kinetic approach. You can’t tell a lot about how people work just by asking them questions, so I was happy to demonstrate my professional abilities. They also had good, ergonomic chairs and sit-stand desks for every employee. They had all kinds of free drinks and lunch was catered. They even had mouthwash in the restrooms. I got the impression the company cares about their people’s needs.

    Here’s where they could improve: They seemed disorganized. I didn’t have a good sense of when an interview was supposed to start and when it was supposed to end. I prefer punctual meetings with a clear start and end time. I wish they built breaks into my schedule. I could take a bathroom break between interviews, but I would have to excuse myself while the interviewer waited, which was awkward. I had to answer "tell me about your current role" for every single one of my interviewers. I could tell they were still working out the role of a technical writer in their organization. Everyone here seemed young (40 or under). Hire some old timers because they have good ideas too.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Addepar (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email within a day to set up an initial phone screen. After that I had another call with a member of the team and was then invited to an on-site interview. The interview lasted about five hours, including lunch and a product demo. I was able to speak with most of the members on the team and was interviewed on technical skills, finance knowledge, as well as behavioral based questions. As a start-up, there was a lot of interaction with other team members to most likely assess fit with the culture. Shortly afterwards, I was informed of their decision.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Addepar (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me through LinkedIn for a first interview. It was a phone interview to assess your life plans within 5 years and get to you better, no technical questions. On the second round, I was interviewed on the phone by someone in the Client Support team and he asked more technical questions. He was very dry and intimidating over the phone, it felt as if he wasn't even listening.
