    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bazaarvoice (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Weeks after applying, finally received a call from the sourcer/recruiter. From there, had multiple phone screens with recruiter, team members, manager, etc. Then a several hour onsite interview with multiple people, followed by another phone call from the recruiter and coordinator. There were weeks between the first and second face to face interviews that required a lot of follow up on my end to get any answers (moving forward, not interested, etc.) Finally, heard back and was called in for another several hour onsite interview with more people. Most candidates are likely to be required to give a presentation as well.

    Interview Questions

    • They wanted step by step instructions/examples of Excel formulas and system procedures.
      They also asked a lot of faux-cultural questions - like do you enjoy dressing up and putting on shows for Halloween, etc.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bazaarvoice (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I dropped off my resume at a career fair. They got back to me after a day asking for a soft copy of my resume. I sent the email and after a week they scheduled a non-technical phone interview. After the screen i was told to wait for the next step of the process and that I would be contacted through email to schedule a technical interview. After a week I heard back from them saying that the position was filled and they won't be persuing anymore candidates. They did wish me luck!

    Software Engineer Interview

    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Met at university career fair and was invited to an on-campus interview shortly after. Interview was conducted by one of software engineer who was at the career fair and was pretty generic (think algorithms, data structures). Next, recruiter set up a second round interview over the phone with another engineer. This interview was quite short (I think this was mainly the interviewer's preference) but about the same difficulty as the first. Offer was extended after that.

    Interview Questions

    • Prefer not to disclose the full question but it boiled down to simple a simple OOP problem and then the interviewer extended it to include some math and we discussed the solution afterwards.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bazaarvoice in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied though the company website. Received an email from the recruiter the next day wanting to set up a call. After a 30 minute call with the recruiter she set up a call with the hiring manager. Then I was asked to come in for a face to face with the team, 4 members for 30 minutes each. Everything moved quickly and the recruiter was informative of the process and next steps. The office and staff were very professional, setting a great example of what may come.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a request for an interview with HR about 2 weeks later. The HR representative was good but didn't follow up to provide feedback when she said she would. I had to continually follow up to find that there was a change in hiring managers causing the delay in the process. It appeared to be a great company to work for though and I would apply again.

    • Standard questions about my experience and my interest in the company.   Answer Question

    Recruiter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bazaarvoice.

    Interview

    The interview process was short and sweet. Had a 30 minute phone screen with the hiring manager which led to an in person interview that lasted four hours. This is fairly long for recruiting interviews. I spoke with the entire team during the interview.

    I will say that the coordinating was awesome. I had a detailed interview plan sent to me. So I was fully aware of what was going on during the whole interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • Everything was fairly normal regarding the questions that were asked.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was tough and took a little while. I was also asked to give only a week's notice to my previous employer. I had to negotiate to get a week and a half. Did not feel it was fair at all.
