    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Volusion (Austin, TX) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter on linkedin in July and asked if I wanted to interview for a software engineering position. I had mentioned several times throughout the process that I was only looking for backend positions even though they had full stack listed on their jobs page and was assured that was fine. After going through multiple phone screens, a technical coding challenge (a backend challenge to build an api with aws lambda), a technical phone interview, and review of the project I was told they were actually only looking for full stack, with emphasis on front end candidates. Volusion needs to be able to narrow down what it is they are looking for putting candidates through the interview process that could take up to a month to complete.

    ECommerce Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Volusion (Austin, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    They were very friendly and welcoming. The interview took place in a front meeting room. Initially, before the interview took place, I had to write a short email response "sales pitch" on why a client should used Volusion's services. Easy enough. The interview went well, I thought. I guess the interviewer was trying to be "transparent" by telling me that they only had one opening available and I was a very strong candidate. But, then he added that he interviewed a "strong candidate" the day before. This position does not take a rocket scientist, so I am not sure how he was evaluating what made us both "strong". I felt deflated. He told me that he expected a eCommerce consultant to make over 120 calls a day, which I felt was really unrealistic and made me question the job. He checked his phone while I was talking, which I thought was a little rude. BUT, he was nice enough to go through the motions and give me a tour. I was surprised at how quiet the actual open spaces were. I was under the impression that there was a real camaraderie and family feel, but when actually walking through the different sections, I got the impression that it was all business and the company culture they were trying to reflect to the outside was a little false. I was told to create my own eCommerce site with their free trial program to prepare myself for the interview. I would suggest taking a look, but definitely recommend to others to not spend a week on it like I did. I WAY over-prepared.

    Senior Visual Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Volusion (Austin, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I got a reply of interest from a recruiter who asked for a 30 minute phone call. After speaking on the phone, I was asked to redesign one of four (major) pages of the Volusion website. I was given a 5 business day time span to do this in. After submitting my redesign, I had the recruiter leave me a message saying that they would be moving forward with other candidates. I never even spoke with an art or creative director, or anyone from the creative department for that matter, while wasting upwards of 30-40 hours of my time. I noticed recently that this listing is back on indeed only months later (lol), so I wanted to share my story. It makes me curious how often they ask people redesign their pages while telling them it's an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Tasked with redesigning a page on their website to prove that I can design things, as if that's not exactly what a portfolio is for.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Volusion (Austin, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I have heard first hand that it's a great place to work. The recruiter was kind and helpful and they were very flexible with scheduling. As the process wore on the recruiter became less communicative, which was frustrating, and I wish she had just told me sooner that they were not interested in me.
    The first in-person interview was great and I really connected with the employees. I had to do a project for the second in-person interview and after having provided them with a lot of ideas and new tools to use, I didn't get the job. This made me feel kind of used. But doing "projects" for prospective companies always feels that way.
