    Senior Visual Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    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.

    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.

    Desktop Support Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Volusion (Austin, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Signed up with an internal Jobvite link. Uploaded resume and answered basic questions. Received an email some weeks later regarding the interview time and location.

    A couple weeks after the interview, if you're already an employee, the team lead meets with you and goes over their decision. If you did not get the position, they go over what you can study up on. I was encouraged to apply again.

    It was a pleasant experience overall.

    Interview Questions

    • Met with the Manager, Team lead, and a senior rep within that position where they took turns asking questions about my experiences, why I wanted the position, and how I would handle a hypothetical situation.

      "Walk me through your resume".

      All standard stuff, really.

      They asked some technical questions but they were all fairly basic such as: "how would you troubleshoot a computer running slowly?", and "Explain the difference between the CPU and RAM".

    Front End Web Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Volusion.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter. Positive experience there. Asked to take a one hour coding test. Negative experience there. The test requires a lot of things done in one hour and if you miss an instruction or misread one, you're toast, even if you do well otherwise. I do like taking tests to show my strengths and weaknesses, but I question the criteria used to move forward.

    PPC Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I had been looking at Volusion for a while before interviewing. Multiple friends ended up working at Volusion in different departments, and they had nothing but great things to say. I instantly emailed for a phone interview. After talking more, I was brought into the offices for an interview. I was given a clipboard with technical questions, some that caught me off guard. I was becoming very nervous while rushing to finish the questions. My nerves were instantly calmed once I got to meet the team. I sat down with 3 members of the PPC department and introduced myself. Knowing people at the company was not taken into account. We began to speak about experiences in paid search and approaches to situations. By the end of the interview, we had a few laughs and I felt like I had the job. Unfortunately, they wanted to conduct more interviews before bringing me back in. During this time I was wrapping things up with another company and got into a great position. To sum it up; there are no free passes, they will evaluate you technically, speak to you with respect, and take time to decide on who they hire. Although I wanted the job, I am glad that I did not get an easy "in".
