I interviewed at Fitbit

Interview

3 rounds of interview with HR, hiring manager, and panel with round robbin style of interviewers from different departments. They also gave me an exercise to complete prior to the panel interview, though it was never referenced or mentioned by anyone later.

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Fitbit in Sep 2021

Interview

The whole process took 2 months. Since FitBit is now owned by Google, they seem to be utilizing Google and their own legacy type recruitment approaches. I had 3 interviews and they were separated by weeks and at one point almost a month. I know this process can take some time but this was entirely too long especially for applicants that are currently employed. It was all standard fare (interview with recruiter, hiring manager and another manager) but the recruiter engages Google recruiters to schedule calls. This also adds more people and doesn't seem necessary. Just adds more people to manage. My final interview had 2 reschedules which made the process very long. It was an ok experience with the exception being the time investment. That much time in between interviews brings about anxiety and has the applicant invest even more time in preparation (we naturally take more time to research etc). It also makes you question if this is how the company culture is. Everything you read online will tell you this is a red flag. Google also requires a separate application (just filling out information you already did initially) and signing an NDA regarding the questions/information shared in an interview. While understandable, I've interviewed for organizations large and small and never had to sign one in such a formalized way. In the end it took 3 weeks after the final interview to hear that I didn't get the position. I figured that was the case since I didn't hear back soon after the last interview. I was given feedback when I reached out with a phone conversation which I appreciated.

It was what you'd expect from an interview. Got asked some white boarding questions and was asked some mobile specific stuff. People were friendly. Company seemed cool. No major complaints.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Fitbit in Feb 2021

Interview

Odd experience where I was brought into a room for a portfolio presentation and the interviewers we 20 minutes late rushing my presentation. From there after two more interviews with marketing and an engineer I was left alone to eat lunch by myself for an hour in my interview room. 3 more interviews in the afternoon and that was it. Seemed like a poorly planned process with not a lot of respect towards my time.

Interview Questions
  • Normal questions about experience and product design approach. To be honest the questions were very basic and it made me feel like they didn't know what to ask product designers.

I interviewed at Fitbit (Boston, MA)

Interview

Three rounds of interviews, with almost all of it requiring technical response. Very... mismanaged and disorganized. Seemed like most teams didn't even know the position I was interviewing for, and ended up being highly overqualified. Wasn't given any proper feedback until the end.

Interview Questions
  • Java-specific syntax and algorithm analysis. Data structures a must.

I interviewed at Fitbit (San Francisco, CA)

Interview

Pretentious talks about algorithms, about different things, questions, live coding, etc. And after hours of that they called me 3 days later, probably to haggle on the salary I asked for. They probably took the 3 days to interview other people, I suppose. I declined even talking to them as I already had another job :)))

Interview Questions
  • Some BS about algorithms, sorting, etc. Then more to the point questions about the specifics of my expertise.

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fitbit (San Diego, CA)

Interview

Screening round with interviewer. 1 hour Technical Zoom call. The interviewer wanted to be creative and bring in some new coding challenge. But could not even explain the what he wanted for the whole hour. Did not even organize his thoughts before interview and paste the question in coderpad. Worst experience so far.
