    Technical Role Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zipcar in May 2017.

    Interview

    I got emailed by the person in charge of hiring for the team after 3 months since I applied. We had a few email exchanges over 2 weeks to schedule a phone interview. Responses were slow, but professional to say the least.

    The interviewer was 20 minutes late to our phone interview. S/he sounded like they didn't want to be there at all. Was not engaged in the conversation and gave the impression s/he would rather be somewhere else.

    Standard phone interview questions. Surprisingly, nothing specific or even related to the position I applied for. At the end, the interviewer gave me a take-home assignment related to the position. Average difficulty, nothing too hard. It took a few hours to complete, and I emailed them back my work the same day.

    Two months have passed. The interviewer never replied back. Zero response. I gave up waiting long ago already, but at least now it's definitive there is no offer.

    Completely unprofessional treatment and a giant waste of my time. They should have never reached out at all if they were just going to waste my time. Embarrassing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zipcar (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is as expected. Remain professional. There were moments in the process - the interviewer appeared to forget that we were in a business meeting. The interview involved a phone screening. This is becoming a norm. I was moved along to meet with the big boss. The process took two plus weeks.

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zipcar (Boston, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    (THIS IS A REVIEW ON THE PHONE SCREENING ALONE - I couldn't proceed further because Zipcar wan't willing to sponsor me for a work visa as an international graduate)

    The recruiter scheduled a call with me once. And then again a couple of days later thinking that I'm a different person. To add to the awkwardness of the situation, during both calls she asked how to pronounce my name and made the same joke about how people probably butcher it.

    The recruiter was straightforward about her lack of technical experience but because some questions still required some technical knowledge on her part, it seemed like I'm not talking to the right person.
