    Entretien de Business Consultant

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Seattle, WA (États-Unis)
    Pas d’offre d’emploi
    Expérience négative
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. J'ai passé une entrevue à Zillow (Seattle, WA (États-Unis)) en juin 2018.

    Entretien

    I applied online and within two days I got a confirmation for the phone interview. During the day of the interview, from the time of the call started till the end, there was a constant background noise of people laughing and chatting and it made me really uncomfortable while answering the questions. I don’t even know if the recruiter could hear me. I was really confident of making it because my answers well rehearsed but the interview experience was below average.

    A recruiter will contact you for a phone interview with the Hiring Manager. If they decide to bring you in, they will typically have you interview with 4 people on the interview loop. It will be either a panel or 4 consecutive interviewers. They will ask you situational and experience based questions.

    After one phone interview, I got the chance to a on-site interview. I had great experience there except the last round. The interviewer of last round is tough person.

    Overall, I had a very positive experience. I had an initial phone screen followed by an assessment. Then I had another phone screen and eventually the group interview. The hiring process was very efficient and effective; kudos to the recruiter and hiring manager since they made it very pleasant!

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +2 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à Zillow (Seattle, WA (États-Unis)) en mai 2018.

    Entretien

    The interview process was relatively straightforward - I was reached out within 24 hours after applying by a member of the recruiting team to schedule a time to connect via phone. The initial phone screen was about half an hour in length, where the recruiter had asked questions about my current situation, interests, experience, and some behavioral based questions. Afterwards, the recruiter had coordinated a time to speak with the hiring manager. The second-round phone interview with the hiring manager was an easygoing conversation, where it was more casual and engaged. I was informed that I had answered all questions perfectly and the recruiter will be in touch to walk over next steps in the process. Unfortunately, I wasn't selected to proceed onto an on-site interview. It's definitely understandable given that it was a competitive selection process. However, the overall experience was rather negative. I had waited 1.5 weeks even with follow-up communication only to be sent a generic rejection email by the recruiter. It would have been great if personalized feedback was provided.

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en personne. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé une entrevue à Zillow (Seattle, WA (États-Unis)).

    Entretien

    Overall, I would probably go through the process again but there is still very much room for improvement and lots to be weary about.

    PROS
    - Interviewers were very nice people.
    - All of the questions I was asked were fair. No curveballs or gotchas.

    CONS
    - I actually failed my first phone screen with feedback saying that they were looking for candidates with better coding skills. I'm not sure how that was the case since my code had optimal complexity and pretty clean code (as clean as it can be when you're used to) and this company should really just stick with canned, non-specific rejection emails. Plus, I was still hit up by a recruiter a month later and had a phone screen that I passed, so not sure my coding skills were that bad.

    - There was a big delay my second time around between talking to the recruiter and getting a phone screen. Probably about a month.

    - So for my second time around, the phone screen interviewer didn't say anything during the entire phone screen and I'm pretty sure he wasn't even on codepair link since I only saw my name up. It sounded more like he was just doing work or emails in the background.

    - Seemed like Zillow is a bit Google obsessed: same interview style questions, recruiters bragging that their engineers choose them over Google, and calling you for a rejection. Google and other big tech companies attract a certain, myopic kind of personality. And saying you have Google talent doesn't attract all of us. In fact, it's going to push some of us, like myself, away. And in reality, Zillow might be a reputable tech company in Seattle but it doesn't have the same clout in other cities, so no need to force that Google comparison.

    - Seemed as if some of the questions I was asked about a current employer were loaded questions, was asked if I was running away from anything, putting me in between a rock and a hard place of not talking poorly about a professional leadership but also not sounding congruent with some of that current employer's bad reputation.

    - Usually companies just email you to reject you. In this case, Zillow didn't get back for a week and made it over a phone call. Phone calls aren't that much longer than reading an email but it's still a general waste of time in comparison. Moreover, the feedback I got was, "We had another candidate whose experience was better for the role but all the interviewers wanted you to know that they still see you being a great fit for Zillow." This just comes across as fake because if Zillow really meant that, then they'd follow-up with another onsite for a different role. It's at this point when I see why companies give canned rejection emails.

    In general, I just think that Zillow is walking this line between trying to have Google-tier technical talent but also being the greatest place to work with the nicest people and this sincerity comes off as phony and forced because they're still a huge tech company.

    Will probably interview with them again in the future, but will just be a bit weary.

    I had a recruiter screen then a hiring manager screen. Hiring manager stated that I would be invited to an on site, but didn't hear back from recruiter until three weeks later saying that the position was filled. Terrible communication and lack of respect for candidates

    Entretien de Machine Learning Engineer

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme
    Pas d’offre d’emploi
    Expérience négative
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris une semaine. J'ai passé une entrevue à Zillow.

    Entretien

    I was contacted by a technical recruiter followed by an amazing conversation on phone about my technical interests and experience which led to a phone screen.
    The phone screen was interesting, it started off with a behavioural phase where I had to explain a little bit about myself and an interesting project I did. The interviewer was clearly not happy with the project I described.
    This was followed by a series of Machine Learning questions like what technologies (classification,etc) have you worked on etc and what algorithms did I use before. Next was about overfitting, how do I identify and overcome it, the interviewer was unhappy with the usual bias vs variance,cross validation, re-sampling,feature engineering,regularization, other methods(ensemble etc) based answers and had no intention of giving a hit of what was being expected and there were some routine machine learning questions that test if I had other basic ML knowledge.
    This was followed by a coding challenge on codepair. It was an easy problem straight from leetcode (string + dp) but the funny part was the interviewer was pissed off at the dp solution and demanded a 2**n recursive solution. At this point it was clear for me that interview derailed a long time back and felt like the interviewer was not at all interested in making the call.
    The obvious reject came a week later on a holiday in the usual email format.
    PS: The interviewer constantly yelled whenever he did not like my answer and made some unprofessional remarks about how people lack experience in dealing with problems.

    Phone call then invite to interview in person. The phone call went really well and the in-person interview was just ok. I really disliked that they provided so little feedback. Afterward, I had to follow up to hear back on whether I received the offer or not though I was already sure when I was walking out that I didn't.
