    Stylist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Stitch Fix (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    I applied in November of 2017 and received an email inviting me to interview in early December about 2 weeks later. I needed to reschedule my original interview date the day of due to an unforeseen circumstance. I received a new invite to interview a week or so later and scheduled my interview for early January 2018. I was asked to prepare a style board on Pinterest for a sample client that included 5 pieces (4 of which were clothing). I also was asked to bring a lap top to my interview to use to present my Pinterest board. I arrived about 30 min early to my interview- mostly because I wasn't sure how long it would take to find parking and get to the interview location. The Lead Stylist brought to the interview space about 10 min before my scheduled time and I was asked to sign a confidentiality agreement due to the possibility that they would disclose proprietary information. They also asked me to write a short note for the client that I styled. We then moved into a separate conference room and started the interview. It was very casual and really was more of a conversation than an actual interview. They asked me 4-5 questions and then they asked me to explain how I would style three pieces that they had hanging. Finally, they asked me to present my Pinterest board and note for the client. I was able to explain my rationale to why I picked each piece. They gave me feedback about my board and note, which was helpful. The final question was if there was anything I wanted to make sure that they knew about me, which is a favorite question when I interview in my full time life. I used the time to recap why I would be a good fit and emphasized that I would love the opportunity to be on the styling team.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Stitch Fix.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received email setting up interview. Downloaded blue jeans which was an overall poor and difficult application to use. Had a series of interviewers set up to interview me - one of which decided day of the interview they didn't want to do the interview. Interviews that I had were with people who were obviously not paying attention and distracted (typing, eyes wandering, etc). Very unprofessional experience. They were nice and overall smart though!

    Remote Stylist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stitch Fix (Austin, TX) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I was initially very excited about this interview. I arrived early & was ignored. After I inquired, the receptionist sent someone over. I was told they had somehow forgotten about my interview & informed me that they'd most likely reschedule. I politely informed them that I had rented a car and driven hours for the interview.

    Two women interviewed me. One was very nice, and complimentary of my answers and experience (degree directly related to the position and yrs of direct experience) the other woman rude, condescending and rushed through the interview as it was, in her words, "the end of her work day." This made the interview awkward and unfulfilling.

    I strongly urge you to review your hiring and interview process, as I have well over 10 years of direct experience in this industry, yet I was not offered a position.

    In spite of my degree, and years of experience in this industry, I received a rejection letter. My experience at your office causes me to question your company's culture and hiring practice. To be honest, the way I was treated from the moment and walked through your doors, and the absence of anyone else in the building that looked like me tells me everything I need to know about your company.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Stitch Fix.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Stitch Fix in 2017. Twice. The first time around I received a phone call that led to a video conferencing interview over BlueJeans. The interviewer was distracted the entire time, and continually asked me follow up questions that I had literally just answered. I didn't feel like I was being listened to at all. I thought to myself, no biggie. I met a few developers at RailsConf and thought they were really nice. Let's give the next round a shot.

    The next "product" round was possibly the most awkward interview experience of my life. The interviewer had no idea how to propose their "thought experiment" in a way that lead to any meaningful conversation. I'm talking something that was a seriously easy problem to solve, and yet it was impossible to have a dialogue with this person.

    In the end, I was offered a position over the phone in the San Francisco office which I declined.

    Next interview...

    I did not reapply. A recruiter at Stitch Fix reached out to me and asked if I was still interested in working remotely for Stitch Fix. I hesitantly said that I would entertain the idea, and we scheduled another interview using BlueJeans.

    I attend the next meeting, and the interviewer was not told that I had already interviewed with the company. He was nice and actually listened, but he was completely thrown when I told him I had already gone through the process as answer to "What do you know about Stitch Fix?" He never really got back on track after getting blindsighted by this, and eventually we just talked about testing strategies that we'ved tried to use for service oriented design.

    I end up moving onto the next stage: completing a homework assignment. I spun up a private repo, made three pull-requests to build the features discussed in the assignments, and merged them as I went through.

    Ten days later, I get an email saying the reviewer of my homework assignment thought it was hard to review my git diffs (despite making three feature branches, squashing commits, and using pull-requests), and that unfortunately I wasn't a good fit. So yeah. There you go.

    Normally I'd say take these reviews with a grain of salt, but I've read a few others that are spot on and I have a close personal friend who also interviewed with Stitch Fix after RailsConf and had a similar experience.

    Honestly, you're better off.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stitch Fix (San Francisco, CA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I had a video interview with two people from the team. They didn't have any enthusiasm or excitement, which felt really uncomfortable. I was offered the job at a certain rate, accepted it, then they came back and said management had already cut the budget for my position by 8%! Needless to say, I did not accept the job.
