    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Quidsi (Jersey City, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview process was quite simple. The phone call interview was, mostly, to go over my background. The onsite interview was broken into 5 interviews with a break in the middle for lunch. One of the five interviews was a coding exercise, another one was a high level design, other two were 100% behavioral and one was 50% high level design and 50% behavioral.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Quidsi (Jersey City, NJ) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was professional. It was flexible so I had time to prepare for the interview. The recruiter response fast and the team was able to answer all my questions about the role.
    After one round of coding phone interview, I was invited to on-site interview. There were 5 rounds of 1 :1 interviews. 1 round of coding, 1 round of system design and 3 rounds with managers. Besides coding questions, many behavior questions are asked during the interviews with managers as they are looking for a team player.
    It is really fast pace startup environment. It has great support from Amazon and also exciting culture.
    Really enjoyed the whole process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Quidsi.

    Interview

    The recruiter asked me softball questions and but it was clear she wasn't listening to what I was saying. She also had a bunch of surprise technical questions that she was going to ask that she didn't tell me ahead of time. She also had no technical ability so I couldn't ask questions when something wasn't clear.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Quidsi (Jersey City, NJ) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Excellent interview process, I went thru 3 rounds. The type of knowledge they want is pretty impressive. Basically more on analytical process and yes code complexity was the main focus. I have never been interviewed in such a way and never been asked about code complexity. Not sure if I am selected or not but I can say I liked the interview process. Very systematic and very nicely done. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
    The company looks great, I guess no restrictions on your attire. What you feel is good for you, you can wear it. Cool culture, cool environment. No wonder Amazon has taken over it. Look forward to work with them, if I get chance.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Quidsi (Jersey City, NJ) in March 2010.

    Interview

    HR was very slow in getting back to me in setting up an interview. Took more than a month from the time I submitted my resume to the time I actually got a callback. Once the interview process got rolling though, it was quick and I received an offer within the week.

    UI Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Quidsi (Jersey City, NJ) in July 2010.

    Interview

    1. First round was a 45-minute phone interview, going over the company and job responsibilities, then my skillset, work process.
    2. Then they brought me in to their Jersey City offices to do an in-person interview that lasted about 2 hours, where I was asked to present my work and then gave me an on-the-spot UI test on an existing e-comm site.
    3. Then they gave me an assignment to do, to redesign one of their pages. I spent a decent 8-hours doing comp research and then creating a PDF presentation to send to them.
    4. Then they email to say they would like to bring me in yet again to present the assignment for them.

    Unfortunately, from there it devolved into a very disorganized affair. I tried to set up a time to come in to do this 3rd round, and never heard back. For the next few months it was a series of random correspondences from their HR about how they wanted to bring me back in, how they liked me, would I take a contract position over full-time for the time being, etc etc. Basically I was strung along with no real explanation, until finally HR informs me that they've decided I would not suit their team after all. What I don't understand is why could they not have exercised some professional courtesy to tell me sooner than to string me along for so long, after I've spent a good chunk of time from my current job and my new baby to work on preparing for these interviews. It is incredibly unprofessional and has left a terrible impression of the company, ESPECIALLY since I am their target audience (urban mom) and customer (not anymore) . Now I have no interested in recommending their services to my peers.

    Interview

    Extensive. There were five phone interviews and five onsite interviews. The process took about two weeks. Some, but not all, of the interviewers did both the phone and onsite interviews. Some of the interviews had to be rescheduled. Interestingly, some of the people I interviewed with I never worked with. The HR department was very organized, and the schedule was well managed.
