    Relationship Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Goleta, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AppFolio (Goleta, CA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    The process is lengthy and you'll interview with several people. Often the questions are highly technical, even if the job doesn't demand that knowledge. They'll have you in to meet several people and you'll be starving by the time they release you to get out the door before asking you back to do it again.

    Interview Questions

    • When the instructions "make me a sandwich" were given. Why didn't sudo make the sandwich?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    very uptight, a lot of politics, management takes itself very seriously. Building is a storage box, no windows, giant hot box of a building and you just look at everybody across desks, no sense of your own space

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AppFolio (San Diego, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by the recruiter promptly after submitting application. This was for the MyCase team. I was asked about salary requirements and then scheduled for a phone interview which was technical in nature. It went smoothly and then I got the chance for an onsite interview with two of the senior engineers on the team who picked my brain on key technologies on my resume and also a technical design question. This also included a tour of the facility. Finally, I was selected to interview the rest of the team which included a principal software engineer and two senior engineers. This included a lunch, but all three asked in-depth technical questions in design as well as algorithm/data structures. A lot of chances to ask questions, and the process was very friendly the entire time. They really cared to hire the smartest and best engineers out there but they also care for their well being too. Unfortunately, no offer but the recruiter was friendly in offering constructive feedback.

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at AppFolio.

    Interview

    Applied online, then reached out to corporate recruiter on LinkedIn. 30 min. call with that recruiter. She referred me to another recruiter from another division. 30 min. call again.
    1 hour phone interview with Engineering Director
    1 hour Skype interview with same Engineering Director
    On site interview at local office: 1 hour with one engineer, another 1 hour with another engineer, another 1 hour with same Engineering Director
    1 hour Skype interview with Chief Architect
    On site interview at corporate office: 1 hour with another Engineering Director, 1 hour with Chief Scientist, 1 hour with Engineer, 1 hour with Executive VP

    Hiring manager and recruiters treated me with the utmost respect and sincerity through entire process and every single person that interviewed me was highly intelligent, reasonable, and fun to meet.

    Throughout this 1 month process, I don't think more than 36 hours ever went by without someone from the company touching base with me.

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at AppFolio in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online for the Software Engineer Intern position and within approximately a week I had a initial phone screen with a member of the HR team. She was very kind and after that she set me up with a one hour technical phone interview with a senior member of the engineering team. The technical phone interview lasted about 40 minutes and covered questions on my background as well as questions relating to sorting, data management, and object-oriented programming. I was rejected at the end of the technical interview, but the interviewer was very nice about it.
