    Customer Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Venmo (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through the company's website and within a week I got an email to schedule a phone interview for that same week with a talent recruiter. The phone interview was very simple and easy questions about skills. She asked about metric tools, organizational skills (very important), as well as behavior based questions so actual situations and not generalizations. She explained the role and the company, she was a really sweet person and helped out a lot. That same day, I received a call notifying that they wanted to move forward with me and I had a interview scheduled for Friday of the following week. The interview was at their headquarters downtown and it started as a group where we received a brief presentation and overview of the company and job, then we broke intro groups and played a fun activity that the managers were apart of as well. After the activity half of the group went off into the individual interviews while the other half completed a wonderlic assessment and writing sample. Once the interview was over we were free to tour the facility and ask any questions that we had and the talent recruiter let us know that we would find out that same day if we were hired. It was a pretty fun and simple interview. I personally enjoyed myself and fell in love with the company from the moment I stepped into the office. I recommend that if you are scheduled for the phone interview, listen/take notes on everything that the recruiter tells you because they are so helpful throughout the entire process.

    Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Venmo (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Invited to New York to interview after two phone screens for a remote DevOps position. Interviewers were engaging and I really enjoyed our conversations.

    The feedback I got after interviewing was that the position was no longer being offered remote. It would have been preferable to not waste 4 days traveling to and from New York if that was the case. Not sure what that says about management. After I got back there have been a couple of very negative Glassdoor reviews posted.

    Interview

    After 2 rounds of interview, they told me won't continue interviewing with me. I asked the HR more feedback and reasons and he said he cannot tell me. I interviewed big and small companies before. No company acts rude and stupid like Venmo.

    Risk Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Venmo (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through a referral. The interview arrangements worked pretty fast as PayPal recruiters were responsible for the total process.
    1) Phone screening by recruiter
    2) Call with the hiring manager
    3) In-person interview
    I believe, overall it was an efficient process but I think the team or the hiring manager were not exactly sure about what they were looking for at the candidate. The position was related to fraud detection but I believe they chose me because of my analytical capabilities in the phone round.
    In the office, I interviewed with 5 different people, all different level of positions. It was a friendly environment.
    The worst thing about the total process was about the accommodation arrangements. They made me stay at a very expensive hotel near the office but when I arrived I realized that it was not paid in advance. So I paid around $500 for a night and submit the reimbursement form afterward. It took more than 4 months for them to process the check so I was nearly hopeless about it but I finally received the check after a lot of follow ups.

    Interview Questions

    • - A single fraud detection case based on a payment scenario made through Venmo
      - Your related experience

    Support Representative Interview

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Venmo (Chicago, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online from an online job posting. Recruiter emailed about 2 weeks later to setup a phone interview and add a window of times that I would be available. Here's where it gets funky. I post the times I'm available, but most of that next week I wasn't, because I was going out of town. On the third day after sending in my availability I email again to see if the recruiter got my availability and he finally confirmed me for a time and date I didn't mention being available for. Okay, that's fine, I'll just go with it. He calls on time and we do the standard, tell me about your experience. What have you been doing since your previous position and how the company works. It was a pleasant conversation/interview, lasted about 10 minutes. He told me that the HR department would get in contact in about a week. 2 days later I get a thank you, generic email about applying, but they were moving on to other candidates.
