    Marketing Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Optimizely (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted and screened by recruiter. Had a brief call with the hiring manager then was brought in for a short onsite. Onsite consisted of a brief tour of the office and a short presentation to a group of 6 people. Was called 3 day afterwards by a recruiter and told she was waiting for all stakeholders before she was able to share a decision. Did not hear back after that, lack of closure not the greatest interview experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Optimizely.

    Interview

    Overall it was good process. I Spoke to a recruiter initially for 30-40 minutes and then was setup with the hiring manager. I then spoke with the hiring manager for roughly an hour and the discussion was very conversational, which was great. The discussion was a combination of drilling into my background as well as discussing the specific of the position they were looking for.

    Mid Senior Client Services Role Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Optimizely in June 2016.

    Interview

    I'm convinced the girl who interviewed me is a robot. She was reading off a sheet of paper very quickly (I could tell this over the phone) and her questions were statements. It was the weirdest thing. She would just state things about the company and have a long pause and I would sit there and then realize, "oh, I guess I talk here?" It was so bad. I'm guessing they already had their candidate lined-up, because this seemed like the type of interview you do when you already know who you want to hire but have to go around giving everyone a "fair" shake.

    Given how horrible this hr chick was, if they ask me for a second interview I won't take it. I don't want to work for a place where the first person you talk to sounds dead on the inside. What if that's me a month from now if I ever worked there? Get your crap together, Optimizely. If you want great candidates, make sure you have the first person those candidates talk to actually sound friggin' interested in them.

    Corporate Customer Success Manager Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Optimizely (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Seamless. Phone Screen, followed by phone interview, followed by in-person interviews. In between each step, I received phone calls to set me up for the next step. Everything was very thorough and friendly. I was incredibly impressed with the recruiter's communication. It was clear to me that they want to set candidates up for success but also are aware of the competitive market and are doing a great job of setting themselves apart from other companies. The experience impressed me and made me want to be a part of the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Optimizely (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for one of the opening on LinkedIn. Got a got from recruiter. Totally 3 rounds

    1. Telephonic round (Screen / Technical or both)
    2. Online coding challenge (1 hour)
    3. Onsite

    I think if you are a Computer Science major and know the basics well, have taken enough coding practices you can crack it. It was a positive experience. I could not complete teh assignment during the call but the interview was happy to receive the code and see it. Though I got a reject, I think that is definitely great. Atleast you solve the complete problem to send it across to the interviewer
