    IT Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Mateo, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Roblox (San Mateo, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by Grace Lee via LinkedIn and she coordinated the entire process from start to finish. She did a great job keeping our conversation going despite both of us traveling outside of the country in the middle of the interview process! She was extremely responsive and professional during the 2+ months we were in contact.

    There were three phone screens, one on-site interview with three rounds, then an on-site founder's round.

    At all stages of interviews I was asked technical, situational and culture fit questions.

    Product Manager Interview

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straight forward and pretty positive but there are multiple steps.
    1) speak with the recruiter
    2) speak with the hiring manager. I was asked about my experiences as a PM and we discussed the role in detail.
    3) do a homework assignment. The homework was about writing a spec to solve a particular problem
    4) 2 onsite interviews + a conversation with the CEO if the onsites go well.

    I had a fairly smooth interview process. Chantal, the recruiter, was very helpful. She responded very quickly with the latest updates and let me know what to expect from the interview process. The recruiting team was able to accommodate my schedule constraints and were quick to confirm the schedule.

    UX Designer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Roblox (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    The process is similar to how others described: UX test, phone interview, on-site interview. The people are friendly enough, the recruiter is friendly, but I'm surprised at the extreme level of positive responses to her on Glassdoor (in my opinion, she was just doing her job, not necessarily better or worse than other recruiters I've worked with).

    The on-site was actually pretty off-putting. The interviewers are either distracted or just difficult to communicate with. I think a lot of preference is placed on internal referrals, which is typical and expected I suppose.

    After all of this, I was told I don't have enough experience, which you'd think you'd be able to straight from my resume/phone screening. The experience was okay, no more no less. But unfortunately, at the end of the day, it felt like a waste of time rather than a great experience.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Roblox (San Mateo, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I have never experienced a more positive interview process. Every step, from coordinating logistics, to the actual in-person questions, was thoughtful, detailed, and personable. I felt valued as a potential candidate and encouraged every step of the way. So often, as a candidate, you are at the bottom of someone's mind, never knowing when you'd hear feedback, if ever. It can leave you feeling insecure and frustrated. My experience with Lisa Martin was the opposite - she checked in before and after each step of the process and provided direct, valuable feedback and a timeline for next steps.

    Interview

    They spammed me multiple times for a position. After I told them my skillset they said another recruiter will call me but never did.

    Then the recruiter keeps mentioning her boss's name and accused me of applying to many roles. But I never applied before.

    They are liars and they keep contradicting themselves.

    Site Reliability Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Roblox (San Mateo, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Their chief scientist found me on linkedin and contacted me directly. A number of phone calls with their recruiters and 4 phone calls with engineers. Constant followup from their recruiters who wanted to know what questions were asked, (maybe the right hand doesnt know what the left hand does) No programming test. Final onsite with lots of questions asked. The entire process was very positive, friendly, and their enthusiasm was higher than average; I did not receive or detect any signs that the interview was going bad. Asked about the next steps, and they said they would make their decision within a week.

    Never heard back from them. Really strange. Not even a canned rejection email.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Roblox (San Mateo, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    This is one of the best interview experience I have had. I was firstly contacted with a phone screen, then worked on a design challenge, talked with a senior over the phone later and went for an onsite interview as well. I met almost the whole team when I was onsite. Everyone is so friendly and shows respect for the candidate in a kind and warm way. Grace is a great hr. She was super responsible and nice along the whole process. She kept me informed of any update and helped me to prepare for those interviews. Thanks, Grace :) Can’t wait to join the great team!
