    Neutral Experience
    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.

    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 when I countered with a more reasonable salary amount, the offer was retracted.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Magic Leap (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in July 2018.

    Interview

    The overall process has taken more than 2 months from the initial phone interview to getting feedback.

    The interview process had a few telephone round interviews, some google hang-outs and in person interviews.

    The company is really good at interview set-up, taking care of the candidates, informing of the interview process. Interview was very chill mostly about prior experiences about product development.

    I felt like the interview process leading up to the in person was very fast. But then the terrible silence started without any feedback from the hiring team. Initially I was told that I would know the feedback in a week, then two more weeks. After that I got an update that they are interviewing few more candidates and need more time. Then after I got the feedback that the hiring manager was out of town. The recruiter promised that they would get back to me. Then almost for a week there is radio silence.

    My feeback to the recruiting team is to fair and be communicative to the candidates. If you are giving some timelines, please follow-up on your word. Do not leave candidates in utter silence.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Magic Leap (Plantation, FL).

    Interview

    The process took one month from initial interview to offer. It was a relatively quick and thoughtful experience. Even when there were no updates to share during a few days stretch, recruiting reached out to let me know just that — there was no news yet. I appreciate that level of consideration and awareness for applicants.
