    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JOOR (New York, NY) in June 2019.

    Interview

    The process took 3weeks+. It started with an HR call and then a call with director of engineering and followed with a pair programming call. In the pair programming call I wasn't getting any inputs from the interviewer so manage to complete the program but wasn't the optimum approach probably that's why couldn't go further. If you go forward then its an half day onsite

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at JOOR (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied direct, recruiter emailed within a week to schedule a call, which was with Amy and Vishal who were both really polite, professional and timely with everything. Product definitely serves a need and seems interesting, the only reason I ended it was because apparently they ask for a bunch of references later on and there was no way I was going to waste my former bosses and coworkers' time with that. This isn't the 1950s, even a criminal can find 3 people to vouch for them over the phone. My friends/former coworkers and bosses would have laughed at me if I texted them giving a heads up. I guess the old school style works for them but it was a red flag for me in a few ways.

    Interview Questions

    • Ended before the tech round, but I was told next step was a hangouts video interview with the lead engineer and no mention of pair programming or anything. Not sure what that entails, if you look good you move on?   Answer Question

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at JOOR (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with what sounded like an HR person. It was standard and a week or so later I was contacted by email and sent a take-home assignment to build a url shortener - additional specs were to provide endpoints to allow for mobile & tablet redirection and to provide stats. I was also asked to provide tests and a README with install instructions.

    After completing this non-trivial assignment, which took several hours of (unpaid) time, I received, a week later, an email saying that they had reviewed the assignment and decided not to move forward. I thought it was shocking that they did not even do me the courtesy of providing any feedback after the time I had invested. In an in-person interview, you generally know what questions you didn't know, but with this assessment I remain completely in the dark as to what, if anything, was lacking in my work.

    This is clearly a company that has no respect for candidates' time. That seems to be mirrored by the many reviews by employees who describe a culture of gross overwork.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JOOR (New York, NY) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The first call I had was about 30 minutes with Vishal, the Director of Talent, who just asked a few questions about my timeline, tech stack and background.

    A week later, I was scheduled for a 45 minute video call over Google Meet with Derek, the CTO, in which he asked me more technical questions and some problem solving questions. I received feedback from the hiring team within 90 minutes of ending the call to schedule my next interview!!

    Next I went to the office for onsite interview which lasted about 3 hours. The onsite consisted of 5 stages during which I met 6 people. There was a problem solving interview with whiteboard/pseudocoding questions; a coding/pair programming interview; a culture interview with QA; a product interview with a PM; and finally I had a short meeting with the CEO Kristin where I got the opportunity to ask her questions.

    I received a follow up email from the hiring team asking for references a couple days after the onsite, followed by an offer call a few days later.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JOOR (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Overall very nice throughout the process and very detailed about their company and what they did. I felt like they really wanted you to understand what the company stood for.
    The only issue i had was that one of the interviewers didn't really prepare to set up the code environment and I was left trying to figure out how to run my code in addition to the problem asked. I hope they fix that issue moving forward.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at JOOR in January 2019.

    Interview

    Phone screen with Director of Talent - interviewer was tardy and rushed through the process. Asked me the bare minimum, I researched the company and industry throughly and was extremely prepared. Interviewer did not ask salary requirements which is odd, seemed that this was more of a chore for them.

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JOOR (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Immediately received email for phone screen interview by an Account Management team member. Then was directed to a phone interview with another team member. The second team member was off the bat completely uninterested in anything I had to say and basically just said "OK" to every answer I gave. It felt rude. Not surprised I received an email a week after saying they went with more qualified candidates. Seems like you could take the time to listen to someone and if it isn't a good fit then just say it off the bat.

    Implementation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at JOOR (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was first contacted through LinkedIn by the director of quality. After doing some research about the company, I decided to respond back and set up a call to talk about the position. It was great to be able to talk to the person I would eventually be working with in the very first stage of the interview process. After talking on the phone about my background and interest in the position, I was asked to come in to the office for an interview.

    Upon entering the office, I was greeted by the same director I spoke to on the phone and we talked 1 on 1 for about 45 minutes. He asked about my past experiences, my interest in JOOR, and what I was looking to achieve at my next role. We also talked through a technical problem solving example to demonstrate my thought process and experience with system implementations. The director was very open about the company's values and goals, and what it would take to be successful at the position. Immediately after the interview, he stepped out of the room to grab the CEO and I had a chance to talk to her as well. It was an awesome experience to get to speak with the person I would be working for, as well as the CEO of the company, in the same day on my first in-person interview!

    A couple days later, I was contacted by the director and asked to meet with a couple more people via video chat. Over the course of the next two weeks, I met with the director of client data, and the director of retail experience through a video chat and phone call, respectively. Each asked questions specific to their team's functions, since the role would require working with them closely. It was beneficial to hear the perspectives of each of the team leads and how they ended up at JOOR. All of the questions asked were fair and mostly about my background/experiences at my previous position.

    Next, I was asked to provide a couple of professional references for them to contact. The CEO personally called each of my references and spoke to them about how I was as a coworker, and to validate my background. About half a week later, I received a call from the director who initially reached out to me to inform me that I was offered the position.

    Each person I spoke to offered honest opinions about the company and the associated workload, but also about how excited they were to be a part of it. I felt the interview process was completely fair and now I work closely with each of the people that interviewed me.
