  1. Senior Backend Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Canada
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Zapier (Canada) in Oct 2021

    Interview

    I was very anxious and unsettled after the interview with and couldn't quite formulate why so I did something I rarely do and headed to Glassdoor.

    I don't normally 'study' for an interview but I was curious to know what others before me had to say. It's interesting that while Zapier seems to have a very high rating from current employees, the interview process is often rated in a very negative way. Many of the responses seemed to echo my own experience and helped me clarify my thoughts. Unfortunately I was up in the middle of the night fretting so it seemed easier to try putting them to paper.

    I've interviewed and hired dozens of developers over the years and mentored countless others, My thoughts on interviewing have changed and evolved but one thing I've learned is that centering on the person themselves and their experiences is my preferred way to feel out who they are and what they can do. The Zapier process is very rigid and scripted and based on our discussion, I have no idea if the interviewer had looked at my resume or not. The questions could have been asked of anyone by anyone and made me work very hard to incorporate who I really AM into the discussion. Review after review on Glassdoor listed the same questions I was asked, complaining about a lack of personal focus and, worst of all, about receiving no feedback.

    One might make the argument that they're a big company and growing fast and yet I'm currently enjoying a very personal and positive experience interviewing with one of the world's largest auto manufacturers. Clearly it doesn't need to be this way. I'm not necessarily qualified to criticize an HR function but I really wanted to share my feelings. Part of what makes me 'special', and, perhaps, somewhat annoying, is that I question everything and seek improvement everywhere, even if it means speaking 'truth to power.'

    It's quite possible that working for Zapier is wonderful but unfortunately I found myself so turned off by this experience that I had composed an email basically reflecting the thoughts above and withdrawing from the process but didn't actually send it. In the end it was fine since they declined to proceed regardless. I'm sure this sounds like sour grapes but truly, I can't remember an interview that vexed me to the point of insomnia.

    My wife once said of online dating: "You may miss out on a lot of great personalities by filtering for height but you need to filter for SOMETHING." I'm not sure who Zapier is filtering for but it's definitely not me.
    Interview

    You can see the questions in other reviews. It was much the same. Very generic "tell me about a time when" stuff that had no tie-in to anything on your resume.
