    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to schedule a call, then never called or responded to my email asking if it would be better to reschedule.

    A million reasons could explain this, but very few excuse not at least being professional enough to notify the candidate that a scheduled interview isn't happening.

    Software Engineer New Grad Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Zynga in October 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to schedule 45 minute first round interview at a conference since they saw my resume in conference's resume database. They never responded (>1 month) with moving on to next round nor a rejection.

    Coding question was on a laptop with paper notepad available. It was difficult to explain my code during the interview since it wasn't a shared coding environment, just one laptop. My interviewer was across from me, so they couldn't follow my code easily.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Zynga (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The onsite portion of the interview was one of the most chaotic/unprofessional I have ever witnessed. One day prior to the interview, Zynga asked to move up the onsite by 30 mins. Sure, no biggie. When I got there, the person I was supposed to "ask for" wasn't even there. One of their digital artists had to sub in as a "day of coordinator". I waited in the dining area well past my start time, because the interview room I was scheduled to be in was never actually booked. Once they found a different/open room, we begun. I was then transferred to another interview room, where I sat for at least 15 minutes before anyone showed up. Next, I had a video interview in that same room. Again, whoever was supposed to block off that room failed to do so, and as a result, two separate times during the interview someone walked in thinking they had reserved the room. Zynga was nice enough to order me lunch, which I then ate by myself in the interview room. Once again, I was left waiting for someone to arrive. For the last interview, I was again moved to a different room (3rd one of the day). After locking me down on numbers and essentially telling me I'd receive an offer after the chaotic day--no offer. Probably for the best.

    HRIS Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zynga (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter, completed a screening interview with them, two phone interviews, and an on-site interview (four 30-45 minute one-on-one interviews).

    Overall a fast process, but the last interviewer asked me why I would consider the job, because they viewed it as being "below the current level" of my work. Got the impression that they didn't really know what they were looking for for the role.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Zynga in February 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was ok but the so-called lead recruiter was rude. Never replied the interview result back to the candidate. One of those gave bad rep to the recruiter world.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Zynga in January 2019.

    Interview

    Interview initiated through LinkedIn recruiter and first step was HR email/conversation and then followed by Technical Phone Screen. Recruiter never sent me the feedback after technical phone screen even after repeatedly following up for days. Shows negligence from recruiting team or seems like they do not care.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Zynga (San Francisco, CA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    The interviewer (HR coordinator) called on time, asked some basic questions about my background, and when asked questions about the role she didn't know to answer and kept saying I should ask them in my next interview with the hiring manager because she knows the role better. She said I'll get an answer in the following week and then ghosted - even though I sent a follow-up email, I never heard from her until this day.
