    User Experience Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in South San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SuccessFactors (South San Francisco, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    4 rounds of interview. Last round 4+ hours, did an portfolio run through and design exercise.

    The Design exercise took 1 hour. You got the problem and you start interviewing the interviewers, as if they are the "actual" users. Then you have like ~40 mins to do mockups (in any way you like) and you present to the interviewers for ~15 mins and do Q&A.

    Interview Questions

    • Going though the portfolio, did a design exercise, and a bit of behaviour questions   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SuccessFactors (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is good overall. But the result is not that good. I got three rounds of interview and after the final round, they just sent me a system email said I was rejected. I spent a lot of time in this interview process and I was one of fews candidates who were into the final round of interview. The HR should send me an email rather than auto reply from system. Overall the interview was good. First two round of video interview talking about my experience and portfolio. Then a big interview with several members in the design team for four hours. one hour for portfolio review, one and half hours for design exercise, one hour to present my design and half hour for Q&A. The interviewers were nice and they just kept challenge your design to get an idea about your thinking process

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SuccessFactors (San Francisco, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me. We prescreened and then I spoke with the Sales Manager who felt I didn't have the background. The recruiter didn't qualify me at all. What a waste of time.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SuccessFactors (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The process included meeting with multiple individuals, management and potential peers. After initial discussions over the phone, candidates are brought in to deliver a demo in role. The overall process seemed somewhat slow and drawn out. The recruiters were great; very friendly and responsive.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SuccessFactors (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    30 min Interview with recruiter then another phone interview with manager after a week. Finally after 2 weeks in person interview. Through the whole interview process I could feel the bias against me since I don't look like the "typical software engineer". Also I noticed the company has a major issue when it comes to diversity.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SuccessFactors (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    Interview after contract position ended for an analyst opening:

    Interview was done by the manager overseeing the team with the opening. Very honest and upfront about the requirements.

    Tested some advanced Excel skills, as well as communication skills. Very open about the interview process, made suggestions afterwards on areas I would need to improve, and what he liked.

    *Did not get the position, so just reviewing the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • I actually struggled the most with the timed Excel test. Some questions required thinking on how to present data most efficiently in a meaningful manager (the sheer volume of data made it overwhelming without first organizing and grouping the data).   Answer Question
