    Product Operations Manager, Bizrate Insights Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Shopzilla (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    Applied directly to the company via a job board, heard back from a recruiter two weeks later, had one intro call with recruiter that reviewed my resume and the role. He then scheduled a call with my would-be manager that week.

    The on-site interview was among the worst interviewing experiences I've ever had....
    - The first interviewer was the group manager. She was extremely cold and seemed generally unhappy with life. Never once did she try to sell the role or the company.
    - Next came two sales women who asked fluff questions like "how do you deal with conflict". Again, no joy.
    - Third was a surprise test on a laptop, rules of test: you have 45 minutes, we won't tell you how many questions, you can google whatever you want but we don't suggest it. Despite the fact that I told them I'm not a programmer and the role didn't require such skills, about 25% of the questions consisted of coding questions.
    - Fourth came someone who I thought would be a peer, only later to find out that she would be my reportee, which explained why she was so nice at the time.
    - Last came the original woman I phone-interviewed with, who was probably the most mellow.

    It's now been two weeks and the recruiter hasn't even bothered to tell me I've been dinged. Super unprofessional.

    Overall I'd say don't waste your time.

    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.

    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.

    Project Manager Interview

    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.
