Bewerbung

Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Juli 2015 bei Houzz (Irvine, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

Vorstellungsgespräch

It actually took me a while to get to this point where I'm comfortable writing about and sharing my interview process. I was very hurt when I did not receive an offer. My interview process in total took about a month. It began with a phone interview with a recruiter, which went very smoothly. Just your basic questions and they asked me to run them through my resume.

Then I was invited to an "Open Houzz" with other fresh college graduates competing for the same customer service position. Mind you, this was for a very low-paying entry level position and I was probably the oldest one there and I'm only 23. I know I was overqualified (and was reminded multiple times by Houzz interviewers) since my current position is technically a manager. Still, I explained multiple times that I was not passionate about my current position and was eager to learn about and contribute to a company like Houzz. I didn't mind starting at the bottom and am a very hard worker. That's how I got to the position I am in today. I loved the concept of Houzz and truly saw myself doing good things for the company. They were still skeptical.

Then I came back for a one-on-one interview two more times after that, with different people. I also did a role play for the customer service position that was challenging but they give you time to prepare. They also give you constructive feedback right away. I took a lot of time off work to do these interviews. I was eager and determined. One of the one-on-one interviews took about an hour and a half and was very bizarre. As many of these reviews mention, they do focus a lot on who you were in high school. I felt very vulnerable as most of my time was spent struggling to recall specific details from a decade ago. I didn't feel that it was a good opportunity to demonstrate my skills or work ethic in any way. They mentioned they were impressed with my high GPA and my heavy involvement in extracurricular activities in both high school and college.

For my 4th interview, I was given the opportunity to interview with another department in Houzz because it was more in-line with my skills and background now. I switched gears a bit and began interviewing for this second position, while still being considered for the original customer service position. I felt more comfortable in this interview as the questions now seemed much more relevant and substantial. The interview felt positive and I waited eagerly for the results.

After about a week of not hearing back, I assumed they were just trying to decide which department to place me in. Then I received the "Thank you for applying, but no thanks" email. I was devastated as I had committed a lot of time and energy to this interview process and was very ready to commit. The recruiter let me know it was not an easy decision and that she would make no hesitations to contact me if a position were to open up again that seemed more in-line with my skills and background.

Houzz interview questions are very open-ended and casually worded, so speak carefully and take your time to construct your thoughts. I remember one of the questions being, "what makes you mad?" or "when's the last time you apologized to someone?"

    Extremely lengthy and time consuming process. Wish I had listened to the Glassdoor reviews. They are very inconsiderate to your time, especially if you have a full time job already. Good luck, you'll have to take off work 4 times. The interview process is the same as everyone says, phone interview (during work hours), open Houzz (Tuesday's and Thursday's during work hours), a one-on-one interview (during work hours), and then a final interview and role-play exercise (again, during work hours). Aside from the phone interview, the other 3 interviews literally take MULTIPLE hours. If you're going to make someone jump through that many hoops just to reject them don't even bother taking time from their current job, absolutely unprofessional and unnecessary for an entry-level position. Also this job is a glorified customer service position. You have to talk on a headset to upset customers and vendors all day, and that is how you are measured against your peers for promotions (length of conversation, how many phone calls you make a day, etc.) I was told I was overqualified, but I bet everyone applying is overqualified. I was told I would make the "perfect fit" for the culture of the company and still got rejected. Thanks for the boost of confidence just to get my hopes up for nothing. From the first interview to the rejection e-mail it took an entire MONTH.

    I first had an on the phone interview, then I came in for open Houzz which they told you all about the position with a group of other candidates then broke it up into one on ones for five mins. After that I received an email that they would like me to come in for another interview that would consist of an activity and a one on one interview. My activity was creating a ideabook in 30 mins. The interview, I was asked basic questions, why houzz, what was your favorite class in college.

    WOULD NOT RECOMMEND INTERVIEWING FOR THIS COMPANY. For an entry level position, they consume a lot of your time to go through the interview process. First few steps, you have a phone screen, then you go in for open-Houzz/mini interview (~1.5 hours), then an interview with the hiring manager/activity (~1.5 hours), and so forth. The people that I interacted with were very FAKE. They tried to seem friendly and of course talked about how great of a company Houzz is, However it is clear that the words that were coming out of their mouth were not true. I did not judge Houzz based off of the first interaction I had with an employee but after getting the same feeling with about 5 employees from Houzz, I definitely knew that Houzz was definitely not an environment I wanted to work in.

    I interviewed at Houzz in Irvine, CA in July 2016. The process took 4 weeks.

    First step after applying was a brief phone call where they asked some questions about high school, college gpa and who I am personally. Then I was asked to come into an "open houzz" a couple days later. That consisted of a PowerPoint presentation with a group of others interviewing for the role (about 25-30). After the PowerPoint we were taken one by one to speak with one of the recruiters. They asked about my resume. After that brief conversation I was told I would hear back in a few days to move forward. I was then scheduled for the first formal interview a week later. This was a 2 part interview (activity + formal interview) and took about 2 hours. I then was called back for the final interview which was another activity and another interview. I was offered the job one day later.

    The interview process was definitely a long one! I applied on LinkedIn and was contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview and then invited to attend an 'Open Houzz'. At Open Houzz you get to learn more about the company and get a better insight to what the role entails. After that there is brief 5 minute talk with a recruiter.

    Next I was invited back for a more formal interview. First there is a short activity, which is fun! Then I met with the manager of the position, we went over my resume and she answered any questions I had and told me more about the role. The interview was pretty standard, very friendly people which made it more pleasant!

    Finally I was invited back for a role play interview. In the role play you have time to prepare prior to the actual activity. After the roll play I spoke with another manager to go over my resume and the position some more.

    It can take several weeks - you may go into the office 3 separate times if they want to move forward with you. The initial phone interview felt like more of a screening, then an "Open Houzz" with a (very) brief 1:1 interview. That seemed less about getting to know details about me and more about how I reacted to a fast-paced situation and what my demeanor was. That's just my guess though. Then a formal 1:1, the woman who conducted this was VERY kind and affirming. Felt very conversational. She got a good grasp on my background and my skills, and took plenty of notes. Then they initiated a background check and request for references. My final interview was a role play and a formal, more difficult 1:1 interview. They gave PLENTY of time to prepare for the role play and great tips, my advice is not to stress about it too much, just make sure you hit the points they suggest when they are explaining the exercise to you, speak with confidence, and demonstrate willingness. In my role play, the fake customer (aka the interviewer) seemed responsive to that. Overall, I enjoyed my interview experience. My advice is to dress and carry yourself in a way that reflects your personality and demeanor. I think trying to show my cheerful, unique side was helpful for me because they do want someone who is enthusiastic and confident.
