    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Button (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Did not pass the phone screen. There was no recruiter call or anything, they reach out to you, then once you apply, you are scheduled straight to a phone screen. You also do not get notified of a rejection either.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Button (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Phone screen and onsite round. Some other miscellaneous things. Really great experience. Stephanie is the best recruiter I've worked with and all of the questions were very well thought out. On the whole I felt like they presented a lot of fair opportunities to put your best foot forward while challenging you.

    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Button (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews, then had to complete an assignment that they say shouldn't take long, but it took a couple of hours to complete. After they received that they invited me onsite to meet the team. I felt like the interview panel wasn't aligned in what they were hiring for and what I was told in the phone interviews. Most of the team was prepared for the interview, but there was one interviewer that wasn't and after 5 minutes of talking he asked me if I had any questions and I had to fill the remaining 40 minutes and pretty much directed the conversation. It felt like a complete waste of time. The hiring manager was prompt in all communication though, so I appreciated that.

    Interview

    it was a phone interview. They want to know more of what you know about their company. Question were expected like: Why do you want to work here? what do you like about our company? tell me about a project you've done? The call was around 15 mins as I remembered.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Button (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It's certainly a long process, but looking back that's truly a positive sign. Button invests so heavily in the interview process to ensure that everyone brought onto the team is not only a right fit for Button, but that Button is the right fit for them. It's also great to meet with every person that you will be working closely with so there are no surprises when you start. You'll typically have two phone screens/short interviews, be asked to complete a case study, and then one, longer on sight interview where you chat with everyone that you will work closely with. Again, long process -- but a necessary one to ensure the team continues to grow with the right people that can bring a key area of expertise to help Button scale.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Button (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to Button towards the end of June 2016 and a phone interview was scheduled. I was interested in two positions: Front End Engineering and Developer Evangelist. Stephanie was extremely nice, professional and I could tell she was genuinely curious about my experience and how I could add value to the company as it grows. The interview questions were the standard "Why do you want to work here, tell me about yourself and experience, what development stack/technology do I work with, etc." While I was not offered an on-site interview or position, I was impressed by her professionalism.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Button.

    Interview

    Invited to set up a phone screen by a recruiter. The recruiter was unresponsive to emails and I had to send her followups to schedule. We agreed on a date and time and on the day, she cancels after our scheduled time has passed. We ended up rescheduling, but she didn't even ask me if I had any questions about the company. I didn't learn anything about the role or company in the phone screen. It was the most unprofessional interview process I've had.

    Recruiter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Button (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Consisted of 2 phone interviews, sourcing/outreach homework, and an onsite, team interview. The most time consuming is the homework. They say it shouldn't take too long but if you want to do a good job, it takes a few hours. Overall, everyone was friendly and thoughtful and I wasn't asked the same questions at every step.
