    User Experience Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Human Factors (Mumbai) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I had applied to the UX Consultant position through their website. I got a call within 3 days asking for my background details from the HR department. I was told that I would be given a 'pre-test' that would need to be answered in a day in order to proceed further in the interview process.

    Pre-test: I was given the task to review the usability of a major e-travel site in India and was asked to come up with wireframe recommendations and competitor insights.

    After submitting the pre-test, I got a call from the HR for scheduling a phone interview.
    Phone interview: It was all about discussing my solution of the test and the interviewer had pointed out certain flaws in my design. I thought that my solution wasn't proper and that the interview went bad.

    I gave up hopes on hearing from them and to my surprise, I heard from the HR after 7 days asking that I was cleared for the next round and that I would be required to come to their office and take some test and an interview.

    There was a written test which comprised of 15 questions on usability and user-centered design thinking. Out of these, 3 questions were major design questions and the rest of them required simple answers. I however thought that most of the questions that were asked were silly and I found the whole written test to be boring! The test took about 4 hours to complete.

    And, then I was called for a personal Interview with the M.D of the company.
    The interviewer discussed certain solutions of mine in the written test, but it was majorly to know about me, my background and my intentions to join the workplace. It went very well and I was quite happy with how it had turned out. I was told then and there that they would be making an offer and would be happy to see me join.

    Interview Questions

    • I thought some of the questions in the written test were silly and have felt that they are not up to the level of position to which I was applying. These questions were very basic and having to answer them in written form only added to the boredom of the lengthy test.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I had information from an ex-employee that the management is not so great and that the design work that people do is not at all cutting edge, and mediocre at best. Also, I had an opportunity with another company which I believe would align with my career objectives in a better manner.

    Phone interview with HR (1), a design test to be solved before presenting to senior designers. Followed by a behavioral and technical interview.
