    Software Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Magento (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied directly through LinkedIn. Got a prompt response from the recruiter Craig which led to a phone call with him and after that a phone screen was setup with the hiring manager.

    This was followed by two on-site interviews with team and cross functional team managers.
    It was a smooth interview process, very professional and effective interviewers. I really enjoyed the interaction with them.

    Received timely followup from Craig Jackson, all my questions were promptly answered. He was great to work with throughout this whole process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Magento (Austin, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Great interview process, very professional and friendly interviewers. I really enjoyed the interaction with them.

    I first took online coding exercise and then 2 back to back onsite interviews. First onsite constituted 4 rounds of interview, 45min each (Coding, Whiteboard, Cultural and Managerial) and the second one constituted 3 rounds of interview (Coding, Whiteboard and Managerial).

    Received timely followup from the recruiter Craig Jackson, all my questions were promptly answered. He is one of the best recruiters I have encountered.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Magento in March 2018.

    Interview

    So it's not a crazy hiring process or anything, only thing that was strange was that more than one title was mentioned between the two recruiters that contacted me. That was settled fairly fast.
    There was a question portion of the interview process followed by an in-person interview.
    The in-person interview had culture questions, whiteboarding, a programming exercise, and a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager.

    The process did take an extended period of time. Time between on-site interview and offer was over a month.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Magento (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Sourcer sent me one of those mass messages on Linkedin. 30 minute phone call with him where he had a handful of questions that he asks everyone. I then spoke very briefly with the in house recruiter who was very nice and answered my questions but didn't really have any questions for me. Their assistant scheduled the following interview with the Director of Customer Success. Interview was rescheduled twice. When we spoke on the phone he was driving after having just finished a meeting. I got the impression he had not looked at my resume prior to the call and was clearly not looking at my resume since he was driving. He asked me what I know about Magento, explained in fair detail the role they have open and then asked me to explain how my background is relevant to the role they have open. Ultimately, he told me he didn't think I was a good fit as I wasn't "entrepreneurial" and they need someone who can work with very limited resources. Overall, it was not a bad experience but it wasn't a good one. Just as companies expect me to learn about them before the interview, I expect the same courtesy in return. I do like that when I told him I get the impression he doesn't think I'm a good fit he was candid in his response. I can respect that. I think he's just very busy and for whatever reason, isn't allowing his managers to do the initial interviews.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Culver City, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Magento (Culver City, CA).

    Interview

    It was one of the most unprofessional interviews I've had. After a call with HR I had a call with the hiring manager. So far so good. Everything pretty standard. He also said he would like to meet me in person so HR scheduled another interview in Culver City. There I interviewed with 3 other people (team members) who had clearly no idea who I was and 2 of them never have had a look at my background before. The manager who wanted to meet me in person was not there. One of them arrived late while we were in the middle of the interview, he was constantly looking at his watch, did not ask me anything and left the room 5 minutes later. His colleague also seemed distracted and uninterested. After that I followed up several times with HR (for almost 2 weeks) without getting any feedback at all. Two weeks later they said I was out of the process but when I asked if they would be so kind to provide me some feedback I never heard from them again. Don't waste your time!

    Technical Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Magento (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Initially HR was little confused but after introductory call, telephonic interview and finally in site interview with 5 different members of Magento. Everyone was courteous and answered my questions. But i feel I was little nervous in one of the technical interviews and also there my mismatch in the skill sets which they should have normally figured in the phone interview. Anyway honestly speaking i liked people and office. Good luck to them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Magento (Austin, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was invited to the intern day for an onsite interview. All candidates are interviewed on the same date and recruiter told us we could get the decision at the end of that day. However, I waited for several days and no response at all. I asked one recruiter and was told that they had decided not to move forward with me. There is no reimbursement for your hotel or transportation. It looks like they only hire students from UT.

    Solutions Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Magento (Austin, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    HR recruiter/s was very disorganized and did not communicate well. Worse interview process in my life. Spent a month and half trying to organize interviews with the company and the recruiters didn't respond in a timely manner to confirm interview dates and times. At one point in the the interviewing process a second recruiter informed me the position was filled and then randomly contacted me back a week and half later asking for more interviews with me. Also, interviewer forgot about a third interview and wasted my time...Recruiters were clueless and disorganized mess.

    Senior Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Campbell, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Magento (Campbell, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I have applied online and was contacted by a recruiter about a month later, followed by a phone screening. After the screening, I was scheduled to speak over the phone with the hiring manager and other key members of the team. This was followed by an in-person interview at their Campbell office. The whole process was a bit slow because it was a busy time for Magento, but I tried to keep in touch over email.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked some general questions about why I am interested in working for Magento, what was my previous experience, what ideas can I bring to this role. There were no technical questions, but I brought my portfolio with me to show/prove what I have done in the past.   1 Answer
