    Lead Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waltham, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Waltham, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    One of the most pleasant and efficient hiring processes I had a chance to go through.
    Very close to what Google, and other cutting edge tech companies do.
    There was a phone screen with HR, a code challenge online, and a whole day of in-person interviews. Everyone was very professional and great to talk to. Besides answering the questions there was a lot of opportunities to learn about the company, what they do, their structure and culture.
    Free lunch included.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Vistaprint (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    The first step involved a thirty minute phone conversation with a human resources manager about my background and experience.
    Next step was a second phone interview with the hiring manager which was very brief and again was focused on the manager understanding my background and specific experiences in more depth than what was on my resume.
    The third step was an in-person interview which lasted about two and a half hours. The first half hour was a conversation with one of the department managers, then one hour for the case study. The last hour was split between a half hour talking with someone in a position that would be working closely with the positon I was applying for and then last half hour (or less) was meeting in-person with the hiring manager that conducted my second phone interview.

    Process very long. First phone interview with HR, then with hiring manager.

    The process was really bad managed: they asked me if I was available for a 3rd interview "next wednesday" and they disappeared for almos 2 months. Then they got back telling that they had been looking for an internal candidate but didn't find one, so they were still searching.
