    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bodybuilding.com (Boise, ID) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Received a recruiter screening call weeks after applying. Recruiter set up an interview with the hiring manager a week later who seemed disinterested in interviewing me. Received a follow up email a week later from the recruiter with some homework. After emailing the homework back I received a call from the recruiter that they were lowering the job classification and that I was over qualified but it felt more like a hard salary negotiation tactic.

    Android Dev Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bodybuilding.com.

    Interview

    Don't do their code challenge without talking to them! The interview was to do a code challenge, with 2 activities, a listview, restful services, unit testing. They packed it to the brim with small requirements that will take you lots of time. Sorting, dynamic pulling, popup fragments, you name it. In the end I had a solid 2,000 lines of Java code alone, spent days on it. A pretty steller application for a prescreen. All they could say was, eh not enough. I'm a professional Senior android developer years experience and a solid work experience at fortune 50 companies. I honestly found it pretty insulting that they had such disregard for my time. They have no investment to talk to you after you finish the work, and apparently the social aptitudes of moles. It was such a complete lack of professional curtesy to the point its baffling. Also I realized doing their app that you have to be really comfortable staring at naked bodybuilder roided men all day. By that point I had already been very turned off. Talk about body dysmorphia..

    Don't get me wrong, I do code challenges all the time. Usually they take 2-3 hours and are at most 500 lines. I spent some serious time on their app, 0 lint errors, you name it. Even bothered with peer reviews for people with 20-30 years engineering experience. I wont make the mistake of not talking directly to the company before spending my time again. Course needless to say I wont be wasting my time with jokers like these in the near future.

    Sad part was all they asked for was stupidly easy, just too much stuff for a screen. Bodybuilding, seriously, I HAVE a job. Where am I to get the time to do all that work? Do you write 2000 lines of java code a day? Seriously guys.

    • not one question. They wasted days of my time and refused to talk to me directly. Very unimpressive to hide behind your recruiting firm.   Answer Question

    Internship Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bodybuilding.com (Boise, ID) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a brief phone screening after which I was asked to come in for an in person interview. The interview process was very interesting, we had a short group project at the beginning where we worked with other people applying for the internship to sell a product to the hiring managers (we were selling it to all hiring managers not just ones for our respective department). After this we ate lunch and waited to be called to a one-on-one interview. This interview was fairly low key, I was asked questions about my experience, the classes I had taken, why I was interested in the position, etc. The people were friendly and it seemed like it would be a great place to work. Be prepared to stay there for several hours if you interview for an internship position, but don't worry, they provide lots of snacks and lunch! While I didn't get an offer the company was very transparent and communicative throughout the hiring process which was appreciated!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bodybuilding.com (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from a recruiter a couple days later. I know I did good on the pre-screening and was perfectly qualified for the position. However, I never heard back from the recruiter even after sending an email. It would have been nice to get some feedback or at least a reply back from my email.
