    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jet (Hoboken, NJ).

    Interview

    It started with a phone interview. He seemed interested, but if you don't have a 3.4 minimum GPA they most likely won't proceed with the interviewing process. I was ghosted after the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jet (Hoboken, NJ) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I applied to a position and the Jet recruiter reached out to me saying he thought I would be a good fit for a different position. He then scheduled a phone screen with me but never called me when he was supposed to. I reached out to him multiple times via email but have not been able to receive a response. I regret taking the time to learn about Jet, which seems like a great company aside from this terrible experience.

    Interview

    HR screen, then app game, then onsite interview w 3 people. The three people all give you something a little different, but you can't really tell how much they actually want to be talking to you and interviewing a bunch of people.

    Senior Front End Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hoboken, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Jet (Hoboken, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty broken. First the phone screen was outsourced to another company, that was the best part. Basic discussion about front end, some interesting questions about CSS and JS real vanilla JS copy components deactivate all timeouts of a page.

    In house interview was not great. I arrived on time and finding the place was not obvious, there is not even a sign out of the door. In the elevator I heard a bunch of developers complaining about their product. I arrived to the main "lobby" there was nobody to help me so I sat in there for a while, I tried to check in with the hosts but didn't work out they were busy and asked me to wait. 30 mins late.

    My first interview took place. Can you position an element in the page, create a debouncer function replicate lodash _.debounce. It was fine, the developer was new 6 months in the job and said he was fine, but aware of other teams like batman not being so great.

    Second interview was a BFS for a keypad. It was overcomplicated, it took us like 30 mins to find the real problem. Implementation was expected with recursion, not bad problem but very convoluted. Also a lot of random questions about experience. "Please tell me a situation when you have been kind to a cowoker" "Explain a situation where you had a fight"

    Third interviewer was more interesting discussion of Rx programming, apparently some times are using F#. I had to implement [].map and [].reduce, everything was in a whiteboard so it was mostly discussion.

    Last interview was with a manager, and thats where everything fell apart. Apparently goals for the next 6 months were not clear, he was not able to explain me how mentorship works at Jet and what is the relationship between Walmart Ecommerce and Jet.

    In general from all the interviewers, it seem like they were aware of issues at management level, and not very happy about it.

    At the end they never contacted me back, not even to say no thank you. I end up finding out 2 week later by my recruiter.

    Interview Questions

    • Implement with vanilla JS loadash implementation of debounce. _.debounce   1 Answer
    • If you have a keypad, and you move as a knight 2 spaces then 3, or 3 then 2 . Find all the first 3 movements. ( At least that should have been the question )   1 Answer
    • Implement [].map and [].reduce using vanilla JS   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Jet (New York, NY).

    Interview

    They reached out to me to set up a phone interview without even having my resume. Interviewer was confused and all over the place. He didn't seem like he knew what he was doing. They told me that they are going to hire 500 new category specialists so this isn't really a prestigious position or hard to get position. Salary was also way too low for New York area compared to other offers I had.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jet (Hoboken, NJ).

    Interview

    I didn't receive an offer and wouldn't receive a response to any requests for feedback due to volume. I came from a healthcare background and felt decently confident since there seem to be a heavy recruiting efforts right now. Everyone was nice (ran into the CEO Marc Lore as I walked in), and office building has a nice, clear view of Manhattan from across the river.

    1: Phone Interview

    A LinkedIn recruiter reached out to me and asked to set up a quick chat. It was supposed to be 10 mins. but ended up being a phone screen with behavioral questions at 30 mins.

    2: Logic Games

    Got an email 2 days after my phone screen asking me to download and complete a logic game. The app's called Skyrise City. It consists of 4 rounds that test memory and reaction speeds.

    3: Onsite Interview

    Got an email the next morning saying that I was invited for the final round interview at the Hoboken office. Three 30-45 min. interviews - 1 Behavioral, 1 UX Case, 1 Price Study Case. Among behavioral questions I've encountered, I'd say the ones asked during at Jet were on the less common (and therefore harder) end. The case studies were more like conversations, and the interviewers seemed to adjust their questions based on your answers. The last 10 mins. of the UX interview were rapid fire "personality" questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral:
      Tell me about yourself.
      A time you had to think outside the box?
      A time you thought a problem was hard but had a simple fix?

      UX Case:
      (Product and Search Page of AAA batteries)
      What are some improvements we can make to these pages?
      How can we stop a downward spiral of prices? (If Jet lowers its price, then a competitor lowers its price in response to our price, etc. how do we stop that?)

      Rapid fire round (2nd half of UX):
      Favorite person?
      Least favorite person?
      How do you like your coffee?
      How would your friends describe you?

      Price Case Study:
      Men's shoulder bag is sold on Amazon for $10 and in Walmart stores for $5. How should we price this on Walmart.com? Same product. Same company costs. The goal is to "make money".   Answer Question

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hoboken, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jet (Hoboken, NJ) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewing with Jet.com is total waste of time and should be avoided.

    Their recruiter reach me. After an outsourced interview via karat.io, I had an on-site. Interview itself was easy and last about 5 hours. On-site recruiter told me they will get back to me next day. I have sent and email day after the interview to thank you for the opportunity and their time. Few days passed but I haven't heard from them. I have sent another email to ask what they have decided. It's absolute silence since the interview. Only times that I spoke with their recruiter was when he first contacted me and on-site after the interview.

    Jet's being silent, not disclosing their decision ( even if it's negative ) or not even sending a "Thank you for your time today" email (as most companies does) is very unprofessional.

    Think about it, do you really want to work for a company that doesn't value people ?
