Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Squarespace (Seattle, WA)

Interview

Completed a longer online application that required a typing test (Aesop’s Fables) and some test questions to gauge how you would respond to email inquiries. Also had some basic questions about what drew you to the role, how you handle working remotely, what good customer support looks like, etc. I received an email 1-2 days later to schedule two interviews with different 2 team leads. Recruiter also asked about availability, expected salary, if I was ok to work weekends.

Interview Questions
  • Why am I applying for this role/company?
  • What are three key aspects of good customer service?
  • Talk about a time I received constructive feedback from a manager and how did I react, what did I learn?
  • What was the last technology related subject/program I learned?

  • A question regarding the repetitive nature of the job and how I manage that to keep from getting bored/burnout

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Squarespace in Oct 2022

Interview

I applied online on September 20th, 2022 and then got an email on October 3rd almost 2 weeks later from the recruiter. They gave me 5 questions to answer. Questions such as confirming if i'm okay about the start date, hours and days i'm expected to work, compensation expectations, upcoming PTO or vacations coming up in 3 months and what state i live in and if i'm planning to move. They also sent me a link to choose what availability between Monday - Friday to schedule my interview. After i picked the hours, the recruiter had sent me a day and time for the interview. I had two interviews. One on one day and the other the next day based on availability that i gave them. The interviews were both fairly nice and were from both Team Leads of the same department. The first interview's questions were explaining about the job and customer service experiences and some customer service questions. They would also bring up the Squarespace platform, so use Squarespace's web builder beforehand to answer some of the questions as they wanna test and see if you know the platform. The second interview was the same except the Team Lead gave me some technical questions. One question they gave me was the difference between a website and web domain. They also would ask questions that tie into this so again, be prepared. After a few days, I received an email from the recruiter with documents to sign online!

Several rounds including an onsite which consisted of 4 parts, practical coding, networking and linux, system design, and leadership. The questions were very fair and were geared more towards explaining how you think and work than trying to stump you with a difficult problem.

I interviewed at Squarespace

Interview

Met with the recruiter, hiring manager, then moved on to the written assessment. I was given a prompt that seemed more aligned with a product manager role, as mentioned in another review. Once I gave my availability (7-10 days later per the recruiters request) I was promptly told the position was filled and encouraged to apply again.

Interview Questions
  • Standard behavioral questions How did you respond when things went poorly in your program and what would you do differently?

I interviewed at Squarespace

Interview

Received a cold email with a link for an assessment without any heads up. Not sure if this was a mistake but feels very impersonal that this is the first contact and feels like they care more about the work rather than attempting to learn more about candidate as a person.
