    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Opendoor.

    Interview

    There was a major shift in the company so they needed to get people in quickly. I had two phone interviews, and one in-person interview that had me meet 3 different people. Each one-on-one lasted 30 minutes, which totaled 1hr 30min interview.

    Finance and Stratefy Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    It was pretty standard at the beginning. I applied online, got an email from the hiring manager and we scheduled a phone call, which he was almost 10 minutes late. No problem, I understand that you got stuck in a meeting earlier. We started talking, and our conversation was cut twice because he forgot to book the room and was kicked out by other people. It's OK. It happens to me sometimes too. Then our interview continued, but then as soon as he realized I wasn't the good fit for what he was looking for, he cut me abruptly when I was in the middle of a sentence and said good bye and hanged up. I followed up with a quick thank you email and never heard anything from them again. Not even a "You're welcome" or "We thank you for your interest but we are moving forward with an other candidate. " I have had 30-50 phone interviews with potential employers since I graduated and have never had a bad experience like this. I was expecting at least some courtesy from scalable and reputable start up like Opendoor and apparently I set my expectation too high this time.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Opendoor.

    Interview

    My interview process with Opendoor was really great. I initially applied via referral, heard back from the recruiter within a couple of days, and within a week had my first call with the hiring manager. That call was mainly to hear about my background, what I was looking for, and for the hiring manager to share the responsibilities of the role and answer any questions.

    Afterwards, we scheduled a video interview where I was to review 1-2 case studies of research projects I was proud of, focusing on everything from study design/methodology to impact.

    Finally, I was invited on site for a half-day of interviews, including a presentation (same projects I presented earlier but refined with helpful feedback from the hiring manager), and 1:1s with various members of the product, marketing, design/brand team. These interviews primarily dug into how I partner with others, how I've been able to use research to inform strategy in my past experience, and also whether I demonstrated core values like ownership, customer focus, etc.

    Throughout the process, my recruiter was incredibly responsive, communicative, prepared me for my interviews by sharing expectations clearly, and advocated for me in the offer process. During that final step, there was a lot of care given in connecting me to people throughout the company to answer any questions or concerns that I might have and talk me through Opendoor's business model and future potential. That, on top of meeting so many smart, passionate people through my interview loop, made this a great interviewing experience.

    Product Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Opendoor.

    Interview

    The recruitment process was much faster than I’ve experienced at other tech companies, and the coordinator and Head of Design were great at staying in communication with me throughout.

    I applied online and received a response from the Head of Design within an hour. We chatted the next day about what I was looking for in my next role and talked through my design experience.

    The following week, I had an hour call with a Design Manager to present a case study and answer questions. At the end of our call, I received constructive criticism of my presentation which I really appreciated.

    The onsite interview lasted several hours and included: a group interview with case study presentation, lunch with the team, a white boarding exercise, and a final 1:1 interview with the Head of Design. I’d say the white boarding exercise was the most demanding step of the recruitment process for me. It forced me to be creative with out much context, but I enjoyed the challenge.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Opendoor (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Couldn't even get to the interview process despite ~20 years experience and checking off all of the requirements and bonus requirements for the job. What gives? Is this an example of more ageism in tech?

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Opendoor (San Francisco, CA) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Great chat with the interviewer.
    Solved the interview question with optimal time and space complexity, while explaining my approach to the interviewer from time to time.
    We had more than 10 mins left at the end of the interview for questions and answers. We had a great discussion about the company's future plans, current teams.
    I was considering to join them, based on the future prospects of the company. But to my surprise got a rejection.
    FYI I have been an interviewer for my current and past companies for many years. The only reason for reject, in this case, I can think of, is that their position was no longer open.

    @Opendoor recruiters
    Please let candidates know if this is the case.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Opendoor (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Standard SF design interview process. First a phone screen, then a remote portfolio presentation with the hiring manager, then an onsite. The onsite consisted of a portfolio review with the broader team, a series of 1:1s each focusing on a different aspect (skills, collaboration, etc.), and a white board challenge. The white board challenge was fun and I got a sense of how I would work along-side my hiring manager. All-in-all I really enjoyed the process and getting an opportunity to get a feel for the team!
