    Copywriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at BzzAgent (Boston, MA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the job online and then received an introductory phone call from their recruiter a couple days later. That phone call went well, and I was moved on to the next round where I completed a writing test for them where they showed me one of their products and had me write a brief summary of it to pitch.

    They communicated extremely well and answered all of my questions during this process and were very helpful. However, after I emailed the assignment back to them, I waited and waited but I have not heard anything back from them (2+ months). I sent the recruiter two follow-up emails and even called their office, only to have him not answer his direct line. I was shocked at how unprofessional this process was at the end, given that they communicated so well at the beginning.

    Senior Java Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BzzAgent (Boston, MA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and I was contacted on the phone by a hiring manager to schedule an interview. I came to the company office in Boston MA for 4 back-to back interviews, 3 were technical, and one about Scrum methodology and general work routine. Interviewers were very nice and most questions were related to the relevant technologies and the working process, overall the technical team made a very good impression.

    When I was done, the manager told me that I did well and he would update me in regards to the next step. However, from that point on he stopped any communication with me and when I sent a follow up email he ignored it as well.

    Extremely unprofessional!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at BzzAgent.

    Interview

    The initial process through email and phone interview went well. In-person interviews with the first few key department heads went well, but with so many in a row it was hard to keep momentum in the last few (can make your head spin and forget what you already said to whom). Everyone was great, I didn't end up getting an offer (they had a candidate with more direct experience), but they followed up with great feedback and reached out a few months later with another opportunity, but I had already accepted another position. Overall seems like a great company, environment and leadership team.

    Software Engineer/Java Developer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at BzzAgent (Boston, MA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Phone interview which led to a face to face interview. Everything sounded very nice through the phone etc. Until i got there for the face to face interview, which was the most uncomfortable interview i have ever had. Numerous small and big things that add up to a really disappointing experience.

    - Was promised a parking spot (downtown Boston is very busy) and the people at the parking lot didn't even have my name on the list. Drove around for 20 minutes and ended up paying for one.

    - The building was being used to film a movie and they scheduled my interview during the filming, which almost made me give up trying to get inside since all entrances were blocked and no one was picking up the phone (recruiters i got in touch initially). Finally got there 15 minutes late...

    -Two people interviewed me and it was honestly like a bad movie's script, bad cop - good cop. Really hard and demanding questions which is not a bad thing but they kept pushing more and more, until i asked them if there was something wrong and they just told me that that's how they do interviews and i quote one of them "the more right answers you give and harder we will make it". I said okay and kept doing my best.

    -The interview was supposed to last 90 minutes. After 45 minutes one of them told me he had something really important to do, halfway of me solving on board a really hard task they had given me. I thought it was rude, really rude but i kept going and finished it and then the other one looked at his phone and said he had to go too. I was like "what is going on here?"

    - Last part of the interview was with the chief of technology department and again I was given a task to complete which I finished earlier than expected and completely correct. During that time the COT was looking at his phone and laughing and making weird faces, being completely rude and annoying.

    Overall I did my best and did really well. Mind you I already had 2 written offers for other jobs and was going to see if I could get a third, but they did not even ANSWER to me. No email, no phone call NOTHING (said they would within a week)
