    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Magic Leap (Miami, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I did a phone screen with one of the recruiters. It went well but then she mysteriously disappeared, and there was no real follow up. The recruiting process seems very disjointed.

    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Magic Leap in February 2018.

    Interview

    I went through the interview process for a 1099 contractor role. I've had a very negative experience with the interview process and bowed out. They require 100% relocation to work onsite, refuse to do any onsite interviews (only remote interviews) so I could see what the work environment, product, and location is like. They don't cover for relocation or a sign on bonus, nor will they negotiate for a kill fee in the contract or severance. They pretty much are requiring candidates to take the job unseen and to invest their own time in exploring relocation to their location.

    I never took it to the technical interview stages so I can't say what the process is like there or experiences from that. All I do know is the team wanted to move forward quickly and that I'd do a 3-4 hour interview then I'd get an offer from that if it went well.

    Difficult Interview

    Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Magic Leap.

    Interview

    I applied through referral and got a call immediately 1 day after. i thought it was just an initial hr phone screen, but it seemed the guy calling me was a technical person, which i didnt know since he didnt introduce himself properly. i was not prepared at all, and was bombarded with technical questions right away. i felt like if i was aware of the technical interview happening, i would have passed the interview. instead, what i thought was an initial phone screen turned out to be a technical hiring manager test. sad, as i wouldve wanted to work for this company. :(

    Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Magic Leap.

    Interview

    2 Google hangouts. Although interviewers were pleasant it was difficult to make any type of personal connection because all they do is ask you questions, barely any dialogue. Not a smart approach on their end considering they care about cultural fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Magic Leap in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter, and it took a few weeks to set up a phone interview. The Interview itself went pretty okay, no difficult questions, Interviewer was very polite. I didn't hear back for a few weeks after when the recruiter called with an offer. The pay was pitiful compared to what an Engineer should be making. when I countered with a more reasonable salary amount, the offer was retracted.
