    Corporate Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MuleSoft (San Francisco, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied for the position and was contacted by their recruiter shortly afterwards. I went through 4+ hours of interviews, met with 5 people, was asked tons of questions (some of which were unrelated to the position) and gave them LOADS of ideas (including having HR respond to negative feedback on Glassdoor to mitigate damage) only to receive a canned response via email telling me that my "background did not appear to be a close enough match." It was signed "Regards, MuleSoft Staffing." I thought that was very disrespectful. I sent an email to the recruiter with whom I first spoke asking about that email and never heard back.

    If my 'background wasn't a fit', then why bring me in? Shouldn't that have been determined in the preliminary interviews? Perhaps they were just fishing for ideas. Regardless, it was a bad experience.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at MuleSoft.

    Interview

    Communicated through email and then follow up on phone - very enthusiastic and professional HR members. Not the fit for me but was impressed with the interaction. They even followed up within a few days to say they moved on to other candidates which I appreciated.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview for the most part. However, everyone I spoke to REALLY emphasized how this was not a 9-5 job and deliberately made it come off as you will have 0 work life balance. They also focused a lot on schooling and GPA even though it had been a few years since I finished school. The SVP also made the interview feel like an interrogation and I completely lost interest. :(

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at MuleSoft (San Francisco, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    The hiring process was great! Everyone is friendly and helpful and always makes sure to answer your questions. It was a little slow but you have to be sure to check-in with the recruiters and ask lots of questions to show your interest in the position and company. Overall, it was a great experience because the people are phenomenal and the company wants to hire the best.

    Performance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at MuleSoft (San Francisco, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    First, I had a phone screen with the recruiter, then I did a technical phone interview with group tech lead. Phone interview questions are performance area related, then followed with a coding question. Everything went well and I had onsite interview with 4 people at SF office (3 in person and one phone call). First round is a ~2hr (or 90 mins, I don't remember) pair programming excise, the problem is not performance area specific, but the difficulty is medium level, but with corner cases. The engineer who did pair programming with me was patient and professional, just like my co-worker! Other three interviews are a mix of technical and behavior questions. In general, my interview experience is great, the interviewees are nice and my interview experience is great. Last but not the least, my recruiter is very professional and helpful, he accommodates my schedule for phone calls since I am in a different time zone, and he always provides updates about my interview progress, and he helped me get an offer approved in a short amount of time.

    I applied online. I interviewed at MuleSoft (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Applied through university's carrier board.
    Received a link within two weeks with coding questions to be solved.
    The time limit was around one hour.
    It was one of those online coding environments.
    Questions were based on tree traversal, specifically on binary trees.
    You need to be quick with your code and make sure that test cases are properly taken care of.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MuleSoft (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Personally, it was the biggest waste of my time, and a despicable interview process. If you're reading this, save yourself some misery and turn away from this company.

    It was the typical format:
    1) Recruiter screening
    2) Technical screening
    3) Onsite

    The technical screening uses Karat to test you, and the question, as mentioned in previous posts, is not too challenging.

    When going to the onsite, this is where things got strange. The first round was a coding challenge where the interviewer spent most of his time on his laptop or on his phone. He was unhelpful, and it was completely unprofessional, but of course I can't just say that. I was just given the problem, without much context, and told to figure it out. The next round was behavioral, just some guy taking notes while you talk about your background. The last round was a system design question where the interviewer is just grilling you with questions until you can't figure out how to do something. It is at this point where he seems to have made up his mind on you. Again, this person will be on his cell phone while you sweat out how to do something on the whiteboard. I think if I were to answer my previous questions a little bit slower, then I would have passed.

    Probably the worst part is scheduling interviews with the recruiter. The recruiter had an attitude that I had to put up with, and is very very unresponsive.

    I really liked the company product coming in, but everything about this interview process makes me very angry looking back.

    To summarize, turn the other way and don't look back.
