    Corporate Office Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at zulily (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Had two phone interviews and then went into office for 5 hour interview with multiple people. Was disappointed that after 3 interviews and spending half a day in the office, never even got a follow up, even after requesting an update on the status over a month ago. I understand not being able to follow up with every single person, but when that amount of time is spent in the office, I feel that it's common courtesy.

    Photo Editor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at zulily (Seattle, WA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty basic and not too challenging. I was contacted a week and a half after applying and was scheduled for a phone interview the next week. The phone interview was an HR screening asking very basic questions about salary and schedule expectation, and an opportunity to learn about the company, but no actual interview questions. Then I was brought in a couple days later for an in person interview and it was mellow. They really just wanted to get a feel for my experience and work ethic, no super tough questions just more of a general conversation (: No editing tests on site. Everyone was very professional and straight forward and I was offered the job that evening! The backgound test took time and I started 2 weeks later.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at zulily (Seattle, WA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I originally applied for the position online. I heard back from Zulily and they thanked me for following up on the online ad because they received hundreds of applicants for the position. Within a day, I was given a phone interview that went very well. Because the conversation went well, I was asked to perform an exam which I completed at home to show my skills in photo editing. After I submitted my test, I quickly heard back from the HR team. I was given the opportunity to come in for a 2 hr in person interview. It went very well... I felt very comfortable speaking with the employees interviewing me and left feeling good about myself. It took less than 1 day for the company to make me an offer that I couldn't refuse.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at zulily (Gahanna, OH) in August 2018.

    Interview

    The worst company I have interviewed with in 15 years. Spotty HR. NO Art Director! Was expected to stay after 5pm (for an interview?). Outright disrespected in-house. No Thank you. No goodbye. Pretty sure I didn't get an offer due to my gender and/or sexual preference.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at zulily (Gahanna, OH) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was long with not a lot of follow up. I had to call them many times to see if I was in the running for the position. Background check was long and took forever to be returned to the HR department. Background check also presented errors when it did return causing more of a challenge with the start date.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at zulily (Seattle, WA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a software engineer position and having eight years experience found the technical questions relatively easy. In addition to the languages required for the position, I showed them additional code / functionality I had written in AngularJS as well as described my Ruby programming experience, recent GruntJS experience and also showed them a site programmed in Ruby on Rails. This was all in addition to the other coding languages required - PHP, CSS, Javascript/jQuery. My most recent experience was heading up and executing the coding of the front end of a popular ecommerce site, which I programmed from scratch in php, CSS and JS. After enduring two interviews, I heard nothing for nearly a week. After finally emailing the recruiter, she responded a day later saying they thought I was a good fit, but were looking for someone 'a little more technical'. Or was it the fact that I wasn't a male? Something did not add up. My actual tech skills and the websites I coded were clearly not considered. My experience with MySql was also not inquired about, which I have quite a bit of experience with as well. I felt extremely discriminated against as a hard working female in the tech industry. This type of situation may help explain why there are fewer women in tech. Very disheartening to me working in a field I am so passionate about; the industry clearly favors males.
