    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Fitbit (San Francisco, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I went through two phone calls for the interview process. Both the recruiter and hiring manger were a pleasure to talk to and asked thoughtful questions. We talked about the company culture as a whole as well as the specifics for the position. In the end the position wasn't the right fit for me as I was over qualified so they decided to move on with other candidates.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Fitbit in January 2014.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me through Linkedin, we sent a few emails about the position and other doubt that i had. Finally we schedule a phone call with recruiter and one of the team leaders. Phone call was really good, just chatting about my interest in joining Fitbit and what cool stuff they were doing, which got me really excited, so recruiter said that will contact me to schedule an online coding interview or a on-site interview... NEVER received that email or phone call. Five months later i received another email from a new recruiter asking if NOW i have interest in new opportunities in Fitbit, since it was NOT of interest then... terrible

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Fitbit.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews in December which went fine. In January, my recruiter told me that they were going on a "hiring freeze", and I would hear back at the end of January. I had an offer from another company with a deadline, which I communicated to my recruiter. The end of January passes by with no word from her. February comes, and even after multiple emails, still no word. Not even a rejection-- my recruiter actually just cut off all contact with me. Terrible experience.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Fitbit in December 2014.

    Interview

    Fitbit reached out to me through linkedin, but took 2 months to get the interview process started. Interviewed for the android team and took about 2 weeks to finish the phone interviews. Waited for 2 months (with constant follow-ups) for a decision. Android team was cool but interview process was terrible. Avoid like the plague. Questions were extremely easy which was surprising to me that I didn't get an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fitbit (San Francisco, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Got contacted via LinkedIn. There was an initial call with the recruiter about the opening, team, etc. This was followed by a call with the Hiring manager. There was discussion about my background, interests, the teams and projects. There was a simple coding question on collabedit. After this, there was an onsite interview with 5 people (2 pairs + 1 single interviewer) including the hiring manager. I did not do very well in the second interview. The question itself was easy, but I had a bit of trouble understanding the interviewer (soft-spoken and accent) and the way the question was framed. I think it would have been fine if I had spent a couple of minutes clarifying the requirements, which I did not do. That's on me - not on the interviewer.
    Rest of the interviews were really nice, and I enjoyed the questions. Everyone was super nice, including the interview coordination and the recruiters. Unfortunately, the team decided to pass because of the second interview. It was really nice of the recruiter to give me call and inform me about the decision. I also got valuable feedback. That was really unexpected. Overall, a wonderful experience. Given a chance, I would definitely work there and contribute to the company.

    • I think it's really unfair to the interviewers. Even in the absence of a NDA, I would not divulge the questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fitbit.

    Interview

    Phone screen followed by a coding challenge, phone interview, and finally two back-to-back Skype interviews. Everyone I talked with (recruiter and interviewers) seemed to love working at Fitbit and had a lot of good things to say about the health/fitness work culture. I got a really positive impression of the company from how friendly everyone was and what I heard about the intern program, although I ultimately decided to accept an offer elsewhere.

    Interview Questions

    • Overall, on the easier side. Common data structures/algorithms questions you can find by googling around. I was surprised that even though I applied for the web developer position, I didn't get any questions on Javascript (I coded all my answers in Java). In my opinion, the coding challenge was the most difficult - I used up the entire hour writing my solution but only passed 6/7 test cases.   Answer Question
