    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ServiceNow (San Diego, CA (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screen, where the interviewer asked a variety of Object Oriented questions and a few Java questions. We chatted about the company a bit and what I was looking for in a position. The interviewer was the lead/manager of the team I'd be joining.

    The on-site interview was about 3 hours long. It involved 3 groups of employees: the lead/manager of the team I'd be joining, 3 frontend React/Redux developers from the team I'd be joining, and 2 backend Java developers. Each segment was about 45 minutes long.

    In the lead/manager interview, we continued our discussion from the phone and went more into specifics. We spoke about what the team was working on, what direction they were going in, and how the company worked.

    In the frontend interview, I was asked basic questions about JavaScript (e.g. how does asynchronous processing work), CSS (e.g. specificity), and React/Redux at a high level.

    In the backend interview, I was asked to describe all of the potential problems with a small function written in Java. There were about 5 problems to identify. I got a few, and then we had to chat for me to find more. I was given a good amount of hints for the ones I missed at first.

    I received a callback within a day or two.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at ServiceNow (Wilmington, DE (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me and we had an initial call where he reviewed my resume. Conversation was positive, then he said he’d put it in front of the team and see if they were interested and let me know within a day or so. Never heard back and after about a week got an automated notice they didn’t want to move forward.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ServiceNow in March 2019.

    Interview

    I did not had any telephonic round. I was directly invited to onsite Santa Clara office. Had the worst interview experience in my entire career. I am a frontend engineer. The job position clearly mentioned some of the frontend technologies. The recruiter reached out to me and asked percentage of time I do frontend work. I mentioned 70- 80%. During onsite interview the first interviewer came 5 minutes late and left 5 minutes early than his scheduled time. Not a single frontend specific question was asked. Though I did solve algorithm questions.
    The recruiter never replied about the result of the interview. I followed up later after a week but no reply. Every interviewer mentioned in each round that this is a backend position. I wonder why did you invite a candidate who says that he works 70 -80 % on frontend to interview for a backend position. Moreover, interview was from 10 am to 3:00 p.m but they did not include any time for lunch, so I had to bring something from cafeteria and eat while answering interview questions.

    Interview

    HRs were great scheduled call On time and process was smooth but Hiring manager is not serious about hiring resources, He doesn't have visibility and plans to hire right resources, he is just trying to compare apples with oranges.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ServiceNow (Kirkland, WA (US)).

    Interview

    Applied for position through ServiceNow career portal. Engineering manager contacts me via email and requests for some days I'm available for a phone screen. The manager replies back and schedules me with a date I never said I was available for. I tried asking the manager to reschedule but never got a response, so I ended up canceling my plans that date to do the phone interview. I completed the 1 hour phone interview and never got a response afterwards! Extremely rude and unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at ServiceNow (San Diego, CA (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Initially, I attempted to apply online but I never got a response from anyone. Then, I had a friend who worked there refer me for an internship position.

    I got an email from a lead software developer to schedule a phone interview. A month later, I had about a 35 min conversation with this lead software developer I got an email by phone. I spoke with him about my project. He told a fair bit about the company. At the end of the interview, he told me he wanted to schedule an in-person interview. I later received a follow up email.

    About two months later, I had an in person interview. I was immediately at ease when I met my interviewer; She was very easy to talk to and it felt like I already knew her for 6 months. She was one of the team leads. We pretty much used my resume as a framework for what we talked about. It felt more like a conversation than an interview. The interview was located in a small conference room and lasted for a little over 2 hours.

    About an hour in or so, another interviewer came in too. I had the impression that it was on rather short notice that he would be interviewing me because they were double booked for interviews.

    Near the end of the interview, I had the opportunity to ask both of them a few questions.

    After the interview, the woman who interviewed me toured me around the office,showed me where she worked, and introduced me to one of the current interns. I also received an email thanking me for coming in.

    About a month after that, I received a formal offer by email.
