    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shopzilla (Santa Monica, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted my application online and was contacted by a member of the ad ops team for a phone interview. After having a great phone conversation, I was invited for an on-site interview to meet with three members of the ad ops team individually. Met with you each member for about 30 minutes. Questions included: why work in e-commerce industry, what do you know about Shopzilla, what do you know about the ad ops space. At the end, I had a 10 minute recap with the head recruiter.

    I emailed them about 2 weeks later to check on my progress and was told I did not receive an offer.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Monica, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Shopzilla (Santa Monica, CA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    The first interview was a phone interview with a senior project manager. The questions asked were pretty basic interview questions. "Whats your management style?" "How do you approach a challenging project/task?". Nothing too difficult but questions that were designed to get to know you.

    The second interviews were on site interviews to meet with people. That's where things went south. Everyone I met with had awful attitudes. One person had complained about the company and asked me if I was ready to work constantly and if I would be "committed to the job".

    Another person asked me "why should we hire you?" even though I was recruited by them. What's worse is another interviewer laughed and rolled her eyes at me when I told her I read "The Art of the Deal" by Donald Trump.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shopzilla (Santa Monica, CA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Easy and informal interview style. Arrived on time for my 4:00 PM interview and ended up talking to my interviewer until well after 6:00 PM. The interview covered all of the necessary items but in a very warm, conversational style. Interviewer was very open about the role and scope.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Pay offered was what I was looking for and it's hard to find fault with any of the benefits and perks.

    Java Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Shopzilla in May 2010.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screening followed by a half day "meet the team" discussion. People were very casual and hyper, but one person (guess the architect) was literally looking for syntax answers. It was probably the reason why I didn't get through. Never mind. But thats something you gotta keep in mind.
