Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Provo, UT
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at The Zappos Family (Provo, UT) in April 2017.

Interview

Phone Interview Scheduled, No Call.. The interviewer never called. So disappointing as I made a point to be available at the time specified. I believe I was not contacted due to my age, so if you apply, be aware you will be illegally discriminated against.

    Took four months to setup the interview. Then the recruiter completely missed the time we had set up. Tried to setup one more and the recruiter missed that one as well. Not impressed.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process was horrifically long. My recruiters were non-responsive throughout the process and when I finally got to the onsite stage of the interview, it took 4 months (and constant back and forths) for me to be reimbursed for my interview. Even for the results, I had to constantly ask the recruiter for updates. When I found out I was invited onsite, Zappos rushed me to complete my interview in the next few weeks, but they seemed to take their time when it comes to getting back to me with the results (almost 2 weeks, which was quite unusual for a tech company). They were very irresponsible and simple didn't care about recruiting. The recruiters refuse to pay for meals and check every receipt carefully and ask questions on every transaction that was made. Zappos is an extremely cheap company and would inquire even about transactions with $1. I didn't accept their offer and honestly, its not worth it to work for such a cheap and irresponsible company.
