    Applications Security Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Foster City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Zuora (Foster City, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process took roughly 4 weeks from the first interview to the verbal offer. The scheduling was complicated by travel plans and a very busy work schedule. However, Zuora was very understanding and flexible throughout the entire interview process. I very much appreciated the fact that, while they knew I was interested in joining their company, they also understood that I had work and family commitments that I had to attend to.

    I interviewed with a total of 8 people, and they all impressed me with their personality, insight, and pertinent questions. The behavioral part of the interview consisted of open-ended questions about how I would interact with colleagues and how I would accomplish certain tasks. The technical interview consisted of open-ended knowledge-based questions that were tough but relevant to the duties I would perform if hired. Additionally, throughout the interview process, I received very informative answers to my questions about the company.

    The negotiation for compensation was conducted professionally. Like many startups, the compensation was partly in stock options. Zuora was forthcoming in providing details such as company valuation, outstanding shares, strike price, and secondary market share value, which are necessary to evaluate stock option compensation.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Solutions Architect Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zuora in August 2017.

    Interview

    Hiring Manager called after initial HR screening. Being quote to cash ( QTC ) expert I thought questions would be around QTC ( may not be technical but asking my exposure to QTC ) on contrary HM asked all process related question ( How professional services works etc...) .
    I was not very sure but was called for onsite interview after follow up with HR. Had onsite interview with 4 interviewers each coming with piece of papers containing interview questions. Interviewers seems more focused on reading interview questions from sheet rather answers. This time also no mention about my QTC experience but all behavioral and process related questions. I was pretty hopeful since I answered all questions confidently. After 3 weeks when I followed up got typical HR email that you are not selected.

    I doubt , this requirement may not for real. Interviewers mostly focused on asking questions from sheet rather analyzing my answers and no questions related to my core skills ( which was matching with job description ). For me it was waste of time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Zuora (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    The overall process from first phone conversation with their VP to onsite interview with the team took 2-3 weeks. They are very quick with bringing you onsite but extremely slow and unresponsive on getting back post interview. Looks like if they don't plan hiring you they don't even care about sending out a courtesy email

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Zuora in July 2017.

    Interview

    One interview with a senior level recruiter, where the company and the role was described, but no questions were asked about my skills and experience. The call only lasted for about 15 minutes. No response afterwards despite follow-up on my end. A waste of time!

    Marketing/Sales Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zuora (Boston, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had three separate interviews, two on the phone with a recruiter, and one video interview with the hiring manager.
    Definitely a more laid back interview process. Personable interviewers were passionate about the company. Really seemed like they weren't just reading off of a list of questions and felt more like a conversation. Had no issues at all with communication, they were always timely with their responses throughout the entire process.

    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.
