    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zuora (Foster City, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was called by a recruiter and I was scheduled 2 phone screens back to back. Interview was fine, my interviewer was very knowledgable and friendly. I was later invited for an onsite interview which took about 3 hours. It was less of an interview and more of a conversation with the engineers I would be working with. Everyone was really accommodating.

    Senior Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Zuora (Redwood City, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    The open plan office is fun, effective, and funky, and the employees I met were extremely pleasant and competent - except for the recruiter, who was the sole - but considerable - stain on the experience.

    I was referred by a friend to the Tech Pubs manager, who met me for a short discussion at a nearby Starbucks. We hit it off very well, and a day later, I was invited to interview at the company's offices in Redwood City.

    I met with a product architect, who told me after my interview and my explanation of SOAP and Restful concepts that "You're the one! This was great, and I look forward to working with you."

    I met with product managers and tech support - groups I'd be supporting with my documentation. The interview questions were pretty tough, and the exchange was really fruitful - some good replies to my questions about the company and it's vision, strategy, and approach to working with and communicating with customers.

    Unfortunately, that was the end of the good experience. No one from HR met with me during my in-person interview. In fact, no one from their hiring team was around that day at all. I got a nice e-mail reply to my note thanking them for the interview, and at first I was very confident, with phrases like "very interested" and "please let us know if you are entertaining any other offers" in the e-mail reply from the recruiter. She let me know that there was one person left to interview for the position, and that I'd be hearing an answer from Zuora within a week.

    _Six weeks later_, after checking in with the reciter by voicemail and e-mail once a week at least, I finally got a short and confused note from Zuora that said I'd been passed over for someone with more experience. It was one of three times the recruiter bothered to get back to me when I inquired about the interview process. Personally, I think that's disrespectful, and there were several contradictory statements in the handful of communications from the recruiter. Too bad - they missed out on a great writer and motivated worker!

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I'm extremely unimpressed and disappointed by Zuora's unprofessional recruiting process. The interview never happened. I was contacted by the recruiter to schedule an interview. The day of the interview she never called me. I emailed her and she said she must be having calendar problems. We couldn't reschedule for next week since she was on vacation. So, she proposed dates and times for thr following week. I responded and never heard back from her. I then sent a follow up email the subsequent week and still have not hear back to this day. Overall, it has been a very negative experience because I was really interested in this company and the role.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Mateo, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Zuora (San Mateo, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Possibly the worst interviewing process I have ever been through. I'm in agreement with others that Zuora is very unprofessional.

    At first, the interview process seemed normal. I had an initial call with the hiring manager which went well, and I sent over writing samples as a follow-up. I was then invited to an onsite interview where I met with the hiring manager, the VP, and other members of various teams. All of that seemed to go well, but I hadn't heard back after 2 weeks. I followed up with the recruiter and hiring manager multiple times but did not get a response. After another week, I was asked to go onsite again for another interview. That interview went well, but another 2 weeks went by and I was still unsure of where I stood. Finally, the recruiter asked for references and told me that I should expect an offer by the end of the week. However, I have not heard from them since, and it has been 3 weeks. They didn't even have the courtesy to give me a final decision.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Zuora in September 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process was long and overall slow to respond and update, specifically from the HR department. The in person interviews were professionally held but took a few weeks to schedule. I would've liked to see a faster turnaround time.
