    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Care.com.

    Interview

    One HR phone screen, one technical phone screen, two (approx 4 hours each) on-site interviews. One of the two on-site interviews was a series of individual technical interviews. The second one was a system design interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Many technical questions - most to be answered verbally. Couple of relatively straight forward coding challenges. One large system design problem to solve. The problem was pretty straight forward - you're given an hour to design it yourself and then you present the solution to a team who pokes holes in it and changes some requirements to see if you can handle the changes.   Answer Question

    Senior Software Engineer IOS Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Care.com (San Francisco, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I had a chance to interview with Care.com for Senior iOS role. It was a great experience. Not only the process was smooth with quick feedback, it was also pretty friendly and transparent. Complete process took two-three weeks and not even once, I had to stress out and ping the recruiter for an update.

    In the process, I had the opportunity to talk to several team members on mobile/iOS domain. They were knowledgeable, friendly and down to earth. During the interview, I was tested from good Objective-C and Swift problems to practical application design problems. Any Senior engineer with serious mobile application development experience would love the opportunity to discuss practical issues with the interviewers. This is what differentiated with other iOS interviews, where Senior iOS engineers don't get an opportunity to demonstrate their rich app development skills but are asked either to do algorithm white boards in any language or to write copied code for a very sandboxed problem.

    Technical team at Care.com are super friendly people and always open to ideas. The synergy between various domains is great and all team members are really passionate about their customers and their mission. It was a great experience to interview with the team and chance to meet with great people.

    The interview process begins with initial phone conversation with HR. The next two rounds are technical and over the phone and video. Last round is technical on-site. The offer was very competitive.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Care.com (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Overall, it was a great experience. The members of the team were very knowledgable and passionate about their work. I really enjoyed talking with them. It felt more like technical conversations than a typical interview.

    The HR team was absolutely fantastic. They were extremely flexible and accommodating with my crazy timeline. I was also able to get answers that I needed in a timely manner.

    The engineering team was very passionate about technology and user experience. It seemed like a lot of the focus for the interviews were around user experience and app design. I thought this was really neat because it showed to me that they really care about their users. From the interviews, I was able to learn about the company culture, direction, and even some of their technological processes.

    The interview process:
    - Initial phone conversation with HR
    - Technical Phone Interview
    - Technical Video Interviews
    - Technical On-site Interview

    We were able to wrap up the entire process within less than 3 weeks.

    Product Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a screening with the recruiter and 2 rounds of interviews. The interviews were fairly standard with typical behavioral/PM questions, but I had more of an issue with the recruiter throughout the process. She provided wrong information about the types of interviews to prepare for (assured me that there would be only one case interview, but 4 out of 5 interviews in second round had cases), was late or missed multiple meetings, and called back over a week after the interviews after promising to provide an answer after a couple of days. The people who I met during the interview were really great, but this type of response for a candidate was really unprofessional

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Care.com (Waltham, MA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview/recruiting team at Care.com was extremely thorough and fast. I got an email with instructions, who I was meeting with and where to park. Then the process itself was well-formatted and efficient. I met with a few individuals first and by the end it was the group I would work with. I was laughing and having a great time talking to everyone.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Care.com in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and started the process by having a typical phone screen with the recruiter that lasted 30 minutes. A week later I spoke with the Senior Design Director for another 30 minutes. From there, I had two video interviews (Note: I believe these video calls would typically be on-site, but in this case the company was in the process of opening a new branch across the country and didn't have any team members there yet). The first was 2 hours long and I spoke with four different members of the design team, and the second was 1.5 hours long where I spoke with a two product managers and one more member of the creative team. I received an offer a week later.

    The process took 5 weeks and went very smooth. There was great communication from their team and they were always willing to be flexible with my schedule.

    Applied online, scheduled an interview,
    showed up for the interview and was told the position was already filled. Not sure how together their HR department... so I wouldn't recommend this place after a situation like that.
