    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at yoox.com in July 2013.

    Interview

    You probably are dealing with a consultancy agency for a position in YOOX: cheer up! if you prove yourself reliable and competent you have great chances to be employed by the company after 1-4 years.

    They usually ask devs to complete a test: code a simple html/css/js project (usually 1 web page) starting from a doc and a psd.
    1. READ CAREFULLY the rules and guidelines before you start coding.
    2. use the most recent best practices, don't over-use js frameworks and keep your code clean.
    3. comment your code. It will be examined.

    After the test, an interview is scheduled, usually with HR *and* the tech team. Expect questions based on your code (why did you do things in that way). If you have a tech-related blog/twitter/github page it will be considered a plus. HR asks usually motivational questions.

    Be open, friendly and let them know your skills but also the kind of person you are (hobbies, interests, music tastes...)

    If you know you are good and up-to-date, you can ask for a little more than what you'd accept. I'd recommend it because it won't be easy to increase the salary afterwards.

    Customer Service Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at yoox.com (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Since Yoox.com is a high-end fashion related company, I dressed accordingly with high heels. When I got to the company, I realized everybody was dressed in casual clothing and I felt very over done, which is better than the other way around. A staffing agency set me up with the interview and so I had no contact with the interviewer beforehand. When I had the interview, the interviewer was nice and accommodating. She asked me about my past experiences and what my future goals were. I am a marketing major, so she asked why I wanted to do Customer Service. Afterward, I waited almost 20 minutes to do a conference call with the manager who is stationed in Italy. After the short interview, I was given a project to complete a presentation. They gave me a week to complete, and after I submitted it, I got a confirmation email and that was it. I checked back a few times, and no response.

    Localization Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at yoox.com (Milan (Italy)).

    Interview

    My initial interview with HR was pleasant, I was asked basic questions about my employment history. I then completed a three hour written test, translating different online content. This was straight forward and not particularly difficult at all. I then completed an hour long interview with the recruiter and localization manager. I was quite pleased with my interview and was disappointed when I didn't hear anything back from the recruiter after a week as stated. Considering that I was told I would be informed either way I waited and contacted the recruiter 10 days later. However, it took the recruiter over another two weeks to write three lines to inform me that I was not successful with zero feedback of my interview. This was poorly handled by the recruiter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at yoox.com (Milan (Italy)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    1 phone interview, 1 Skype interview with HR and hiring manager, and a final interview only with the manager; the phone call arrived without previos communication, and after a few basic questions, we scheduled a Skype call were i met the hiring manager. the interview with both HR and hiring manager was mainlya review of my CV, with questions on my previous experience (both accademic and work , as i was entering as a junior profile); the interview was held in part in italian and in part in english, but the main purpose of the english questions was to test my knowledge of english, as they were very easy (e.g. can you tell me about your graduate thesis? what was it about?). the last interview was a business case with the Hiring Manager
