    Call for interview
    Coding exercise

    Phone call interview i felt there was no human interaction at all. Coding interview was not hard, the question provided is too plain to implement with OOP, no enties identified as an object in the application background. I would call to ask them, but i didn't, and I wonder if they have time to talk to me about such questions. I wait around 3 weeks to get the answer that they will not process the application, no feedback whatsoever. It's not a friendly interview experience.

    Entretien de Senior Software Developer

    Entretien dificile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Envato (Melbourne (Australie)) en décembre 2017.

    Entretien

    The intervew process happened along 2 months due to the new-year's break. The application was sent late november 2017, and a week later I received a request for booking a phone interview.
    The phone interview was book and it happened mid December. in this 30 minutes call I was asked what I knew about Envato, What do I think about diversity at work, and a few other behavioral questions. I was also proposed a couple of technical question to evaluate my knowledge on ruby on rails.
    A code challenge was sent a couple of days later. I responded to it within a day. Feedback on the code challenge happened two weeks later (the Friday before the Christmas/NY break).
    Mid January I received a request for booking a face-to-face interview. On the week after the interview I was at Envato talking to the interviewers.

    This last interview is split in two parts, the first half is delivery by people in positions similar to the one you are applying for and it is focused on Software development and pear-to-pear knowledge exchange. The second part happens with a couple of managers or roles similar to the one you are applying for.

    I tackled this last interview too lightly. After sitting it and reflecting on it, I believe that all the other parts of this interview process are screening and this last one is the real deal.

    A couple of weeks later (now early February) I received a call in which they reported why I would not progress in the selection process.

    Overall it was a difficult interview process due to its time demands on the applicant. At the same time It shows how selective they are with their personnel. I might try again next year.

    Entretien de SEM Analyst

    Expérience négative
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en personne. Le processus a pris une semaine. J'ai passé un entretien à Envato.

    Entretien

    Phone interview. It started with asking what I know about the company and why I applied for the role.
    Then they asked about my background and experience.
    However after hearing about my experience they said that they are looking for someone way more experienced than me. Which made me think whether they had read my CV before contacting me for the interview.( my CV and LinkedIn profile could tell them about my experience level).
    And then they said that they want to be transparent and there’s no way that they can pay me anything near what I’ve put in as my expected salary. And asked me if I am open to more junior roles that might comes up in future, which will pay way less than what I am making in my current job?
    Overall, it was disappointing and can’t say that it was a good experience as I was clearly over qualified for the tole but they were trying to tell me that I am under qualified and should be happy to even get a junior position at their company.
    Putting an interviewee on spot to tell you whether she is willing to go backwards instead of forward feels like bullying. As the result of this awkward experience Envato goes into my “companies to avoid “ list because I don’t need someone that doesn’t really understand my skills tell me that I am not good enough for their senior marketing team while the role that I applied for was a technical role.

    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Envato en octobre 2017.

    Entretien

    I applied online. I had an interview with two persons, one from HR and the other was from the engineering team. They asked me general questions about my work style and tools that I use (frameworks, libraries etc.). The interviewers were friendly. A couple of days after the interview, they sent me a code task. It wasn't hard, basically they wanted me to implement one of the Envato's APIs on a simple web page. I completed it and sent it in a couple of days but they NEVER got me back. A week after I sent the code task, I asked about the outcome and they told me that they were going to get me back with a feedback but again no result.

    Don't waste your time with this company.

    Entretien dificile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 7 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Envato (Melbourne (Australie)) en octobre 2018.

    Entretien

    Basic 3 step interview process (phone/skype screen, coding task, face-to-face). Initial interview was pleasant and informal. The coding task is difficult (essentially a real production problem) and took multiple days to complete. I ended the process before reaching the final stage.

    The process was a negative experience. It takes a very long time. Envato recruitment does not answer emails, sometimes for weeks on end. The coding task does not need to be so long and difficult. No feedback on the coding task after being submitted. Envato seems to not value the candidates time and does not keep candidates informed.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 5 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Envato (Melbourne (Australie)) en avril 2018.

    Entretien

    7 rounds of interview.

    after application, general + technal phone interview, coding challenge, code review + white board exercise, behavorial interview, background check and acceptance. Unfortunately made it till the fifth stage and stopped.

    It was weird that they had not realised that I was looking for a Junior to Mid role, from my one year of experience on my CV. Wished they had taken the time really evaluate my application before I made it to the behavorial interview. Wasted alot of time to only discover that they were looking for a senior. They mentioned that they dont hire juniors. What's odd? my friend works at Envato and she started as a junior developer.

    Are we not capable enough to be given special consideration?

    Entretien de Human Resources Advisor

    Employé anonyme - Melbourne (Australie)
    Offre d'embauche acceptée

    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Envato (Melbourne (Australie)) en septembre 2013.

    Entretien

    Good discussion around the role and culture. I was asked questions on my experience, and I had a chance to ask a lot of questions. There were behavioural style questions which all seemed relevant. I like the questions on values. I met with a number of senior people, and you could tell that they really cared what kind of HR person they were hiring.

    Entretien de Operations Coordinator

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience positive
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +5 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Envato en février 2017.

    Entretien

    I applied as a remote applicant with the prospect of moving from Canada to Aus so the majority of my communications were via phone.

    It was a wonderful experience, both managers I met I got along with wonderfully, I felt like our vision of a workplace culture really aligned and my experience surpassed most of their expectations.

    It was a simple 3 step process- I didn't make it to meeting their department head however that would have been the final step. Regrettably Australia increased the difficulty of sponsorship visas during my interview and it essentially rendered this position unfeasible to spend the capital on a Canadian coming over- which is fair.

    Envato is a company I still have on my radar and will be for the foreseeable future. I do recommend reading their qualifications closely as they ensure every character placed carries the same weight as the next. If you're truly qualified then it'll be a breeze.

    I applied for this position through Envato's career page, and heard from them 5 weeks later.
    A phone interview was organized through e-mails and a short call took place.
    A second phone interview was organized a week later, and I spoke to the interviewer for about 30 minutes.
    A third phone interview was organized another week later. Along this last interview I was informed that my lack of e-commerce experience would eliminate my candidacy.

    Here follows a tip: Beware to fulfill Envato's "thrilled " drivers :-)
    This is how this eliminating criteria was expressed on the position description:
    "As a bonus we'd be thrilled if you have exposure to e-commerce systems...".

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Envato (Melbourne (Australie)) en mai 2015.

    Entretien

    After applying for DevOps Engineer position online, an initial HR phone screen quickly took place. The HR screen was standard with the usual questions - How much do you know about the company, why are you leaving your current position, and where do you want to head your career? There was a lot of talk about the next steps.

    A few days later, a technical phone screen was scheduled and conducted. Again, the phone screen was positive and successful. There was a lot of talk about setting up monitoring infrastructure, how to monitor nodes, how to deploy multiple nodes using cloud services, how to replicate databases. It seemed that every answer I gave, the interviewer wanted to know yet another way despite having sound answers backed by commercial experience.

    After this hurdle, a technical in-person meeting was scheduled. This sounded to be exactly like the technical phone screen, but it was a chance to ask questions. The interviewer asked exactly the same questions as the technical phone screen. The interviewer also spent a lot of time explaining the next steps and unadvertised job details. This is always a bad sign of untrained interviewers. I was concerned that interviewer was not asking enough technical questions. I asked my own questions about their "Agile" setup and it was clear that they hadn't even read the few words of the Agile Manifesto and the pieces that they had adapted they had misunderstood. They raved about deploying to production 15 - 20 times each day with small changes and how it was "low" risk. When I asked how frequently their 24/7 support pager/phone rang the interviewer admitted it was a few times each week. Hmmm, I wonder why. Despite three solid interviews and much talk about next steps this is where my journey ended. I was surprised and disappointed they didn't decide to send me a small coding task (as this would have been the next step) that is so common in interviews these days.

    All-in-all, in was a long and a very duplicated process.
