    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The Zappos Family in July 2020.

    Interview

    In this Covid-19 world the interview process was done all virtual. I went through three rounds of interviews. First round was a 30 min call with a recruiter and was more exploratory to see if I and also Zappos seemed like a good fit. Second interview was with 2 team members via virtual chat was also about 30 min long which was labeled a technical interview 1 week later and was asked a mixture of job skill related questions and also questions geared to soft skills. The final 3 round of interviews was a longer process of about 4hrs broken out into 5 different mini interviews each 30min-1hr long and 2 weeks later than the last. Here each group asked more in depth technical job skill related questions along with more soft skill and interpersonal related questions. Still awaiting if there will be a job offer, but despite it being a longer than usual process mostly due to Covid-19 and having everything done virtually I thoroughly enjoyed my time with everyone,. Zappos and its employees made the whole process feel welcoming and I felt more confidant as I progressed through.

    Interview

    From beginning to end, the interview process went very smoothly. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and I had a great time getting to know everyone on the team. It started with an initial discussion with HR (phone), followed by meeting with the hiring manager and another team member (phone), finished by a day of interviewing to meet the team (virtual or onsite). The team was extremely nice and you could tell they each loved what they do and loved working for Zappos.

    IOS Applications Development College Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The Zappos Family (Las Vegas, NV (US)) in April 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online for iOS developer internship, they asked to build an emoji calculator(10 -12 hours take-home project), a virtual interview (2-3hours), then QnA session (1 hour), technical interview where they asked to build another calculator (2 hours), cultural interview (1 hour). The process really got delayed and took 3 months, but $30 per hour with free housing and food was a decent offering.

    I did my best. They ended up rejecting me. Overall, I really wish I didn't spend so much time on Zappos and should have accepted previous job offers I had.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at The Zappos Family.

    Interview

    The Zappos interview process is atypical and I appreciate that. There are a few rounds of interviews, but that gives you the chance to get a lot of your questions and concerns on the table and meet multiple people, who could be potentially your co-workers. It also gives you the chance to interview them as much as they are interviewing you. I appreciate that they take the time and effort to make sure they find a person who fits in with the team and company culture.

    Android Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Zappos Family.

    Interview

    General process: I applied around January and received a difficult but very interesting technical challenge to do within a week. Then 8 online self-recording video questions. Then an introduction call. Then more final round interviews.

    Experience: The entire process is slow and well beyond 2 months. Around the end of the process, I have offer deadlines and I reached out to the HR several times asking for an expedited process or maybe just an answer is fine. However, HR ignored my emails for days and then proceeded to send me a mass email saying that I entered the final stage.

    I hope the HR or the management read this. There are lots of no-communication during the hiring process. If the application process is this long (more than 2 months), many candidates will have pending offers from other companies. You need to show them the positive company culture THROUGH your hiring process.
