    Anonymous Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fitbit.

    Interview

    I only phone screened with them. Recruiter was unaware of WHICH role I applied for, it really showed in the phone screen. It felt disorganized and messy. Also if a candidate tells you that they are not comfortable discussing salary this early on, you should respect that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Fitbit.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by on site interview. The question quality was balanced, iOS vs general programming/algorithms, and increased in difficulty as time interviews progressed. The people were friendly, one interview with a pair of interviewers stood out as being legit and high quality. Parking of course was difficult.

    Forecast Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fitbit (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    After a phone call and excel test, I came onsite. Interviewer only seemed concerned about how well I could use Excel, said she was looking for someone she wouldn't have to interact with, didn't ask any questions about me as a person or why I thought I would be a fit. Of the 10+ interviews I had at different tech companies, this was by far the most de-humanizing

    Product Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Fitbit (San Francisco, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, was later emailed about the position. Had a phone interview with a recruiter. That same week I was scheduled to talk with the hiring manager for the product specialist team, who I had a good conversation with (or so I thought). I was then never contacted for over a week. I had to follow up with the coordinator about the status of the process which I was told I'd be contacted again by the recruiter soon — which I wasn't. I had to then follow up with the recruiter, who told me that she spoke with the hiring manager and was told they'd be going in a different direction. So it took them over two weeks, which could have been done earlier. I learned after the whole process from a friend, they were actually planning on hiring and internal candidate, so it might all have been for show.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fitbit.

    Interview

    The company wants to steal people's projects/ideas and give it the name of an interview. Personally, I felt like they had called me on to only ask me about a particular project I had worked on that was of interest to them. They had no intention of hiring me whatsoever. At the end of it I felt used and exploited. They gave me a free fitbit as consolation and I got a generic rejection email a week later. Terrible strategy, terrible management. Not surprised to see where they've come from the past 2 years

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fitbit in May 2017.

    Interview

    The Recruiter was engaging, personable and welcoming during my phone conversation however when speaking with the person in the HR department via phone, they were not knowledgeable about the position I was being interviewed for which was a bit off putting. Not sure what this was about.

    • Questions weren't difficult from the interviewer. The difficult part was getting my questions answered about the position.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fitbit (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    There was an initial recruiter call, then a technical phone screen, then a follow-up recruiter call. I didn't make it to onsite since they were looking for someone more senior. The follow-up recruiter call was with disappointing news, but I did value the constructive feedback I was given.
