    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Zappos Family (Las Vegas, NV) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The process took about a month. I was interviewed twice over the phone, first with a recruiter, then the lead of the department I'd potentially be working for. Both phone interviews were 1/2 hour. Then I was asked for an on campus interview. It's a 6 hour process where you meet with numerous "leads" of various departments. Then we all went out to lunch, followed by a test. It was actually quite fun. It took them over a week to get back to me that I was not selected. After spending that much time and energy, it's upsetting to say the least.

    Interview

    I applied the fall intern online, after several days, I received an email, there are some links: OA, virtual interview. If you finished both, u should reply their email. There was a deadline. I think if you passed the two, you will fly to Las Vegas to have a onsite interview. I searched a lot on the Internet, but seems
    few people got the Software Engineer Intern offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Zappos Family (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    The first part was pretty standard, asked for your resume, cover letter, and a short essay question on why you decided on zappos. They also asked for an optional video cover letter (which I included). I received an email immediately. In the email they gave me one week to complete a case study and a virtual interview. In the case study they give you a situation and 3 questions asking what you'd do etc. In the virtual interview, it consisted on 9 questions, 3 of the questions were business related and the rest were all questions aimed toward determining your personality.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Zappos Family (Las Vegas, NV) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Had to do an Instagram challenge posting at least 15 photos that describe our style. The interview was a virtual interview with about nine questions. The questions weren't too hard but the process is odd since no one is actually asking the questions. It was short and quick.
