    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AppDirect (San Francisco, CA) in November 2019.

    Interview

    The entire team was amazing throughout the hiring process. I applied through LinkedIn and received an email from the recruiter in about 10 days to set-up a call with her. Within a few hours after my call with the recruiter, I got an email for the next steps. The call with the hiring manager was about 45 mins long and he asked a lot of questions about my background, we discussed 2-3 work from my portfolio website and he answered all my questions very patiently. Within a week, I was asked to come on-site for the final round. The on-site interview consisted of 1 hr of portfolio presentation and 5 one-on-one interviews. During the portfolio presentation, I was asked questions regarding the design decisions I made, how I collaborated with my team and how did my design impacted the users and business. I had my one-on-one with two Staff UX Designer, a Senior UX Designer, Software Engineer (Senior Position) and Product Manager. Everyone was extremely involved in knowing about my experience and understanding my journey as a designer. Each of the on-site interviews was 30min long which I felt to be too short and rushed, I hope they make it 45 mins in future.
