    All cultural fit in my process, they'll ask you about things you worked on in the past, and expect to ask them questions a lot. For the APM program it was mostly about personality and ambition with a mix of showing decent understanding of Shopify's business model and product.

    Very easy but strange interview questions. The interviewer started off saying that Shopify is known for their more "personal" process. In this case personal is just code word for invasive. The recruiter wanted to know where I was born and raised, how I was seen by my peers growing up, what kind of job my parents had, etc.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 1 Tag. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im März 2017 bei Shopify.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I initially applied for a Data Stores Engineer position, but I guess my application was passed on to a front end recruiter. He emailed me twice stating how excited he was to speak to me and was very interested in fielding my application with the different teams he worked with. I responded with my updated resume and got on a phone call with him. We spoke about my experience and went over some general questions about why I want to work at Shopify and what I am interested in working on.

    The call concluded on 3/29 with the recruiter telling me that he will definitely get back to me by 4/5 and to follow up if I didn't receive anything from him by then. I followed up on 4/5 when I didn't receive anything by end of day. I didn't hear back at all for the remainder of the week.

    Prior to 3/29 and even a few days after 3/29, the recruiter would respond very quickly to all my emails. I guess once he wasn't interested, I was just tossed aside. For a company that prides their recruiting process on responsiveness and professionalism, I definitely didn't feel that. I also did some research and it seemed like they really value candidates who can "draw the owl"(having an unfamiliar/unique opportunity and being able to figure out how to solve it). I was able to come across the CEO's reddit handle and messaged him directly to try to demonstrate my ability to "draw the owl." Nothing so far.

    I don't think the recruiting process there is any different from anywhere else. Typical recruiters who don't care at all about candidates and are just looking to earn their commission or however those bottom-feeders make money.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    There was a phone screening with a recruiter to see if the candidate was a good fit for the team in terms of personality. The second interview was scheduled for the next day. The second interview was technical and was based on sharing a document so the interviewer could watch the candidate's problem-solving strategies. The interview was entirely online/over the phone.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Recruiter call, one life story and another technical interview with hiring manager. The biggest problem is the recruiter does not reply at all for days. Took 10 days to schedule the first round and another 10 days for second round. The interviewers were always late. After that i tried to get the result or output of the previous round no answer. Just tell the candidate result let it be a NO. I am still waiting for the result. Shopify might be a good company but they need to be good at their first impression. Its so frustrating.

    I had a call with a recruiter. It went well, though it was pretty basic. Recruiter wanted to know my goals and what I wanted to do next. I answered honestly that I was enthusiastic about more opportunity.

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Dezember 2016 bei Shopify.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    They reached out to be via linkedin to request an intro call. That was 15 minutes. I gave an overview of my career. Nora, the recruiter gave me an overview of the company, design team and growth from startup to large company.

    This was followed by a 60-minute remote video interview with Nora. It was a storytelling interview that was an overview of my life. Nora was very personable and kind, and it was kind of fun. I asked her questions about herself too, because it was a bit odd to talk about myself endlessly. The last thing she told me during the interview was that she was going to chat with Design Leadership and get back to me.

    From my perspective, I thought it went well, or at least ok. However, I never heard from her again. I sent a follow-up email a week later. I never heard back. It is ok that I didn't proceed forward in the process, as I could have been a bad fit for the team. However, I would have appreciated a courtesy email to let me know that.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Where to begin? The position itself was open for close to 6 months and it took a total of nine weeks for a resolution. There were serious gaps in communication from HR. Things like updates about where they were in the hiring process, what to expect during the process, and how close they were to making a decision were seriously lacking. Many HR people communicate frequently with candidates. This was not the case at Shopify. From the beginning HR interview until the follow-up with the hiring manager (almost a month later) I didn't get an email. When I did get an email finally there was very little acknowledgement about the time lapse.
    To that end, a candidate shouldn't have to wait 3-6 weeks for a decision. It makes the company look unorganized. I was relieved I didn't get the job.

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Shopify.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Overall, the process was disorganized which I'm going to attribute to HR inexperience. For example, they didn't tell me who I'd be interviewing with for the first interview, told me the wrong city location I'd be flying into, didn't have a formal process for travel expense reimbursement (I had to ask), the person who would have been my manager interviewing me didn't even know my name or have any questions prepared, no one walked me out of the interview, they sent me a writing exercise without giving me a timeline, etc. However, everyone was friendly and responsive when I asked them for clarification, and they were quite generous in the amount of time they flew me in. I had 3 video interviews - the first was a "getting to know you" screening, the second a "life story" interview, which really just turned out to be a resume overview with the HR recruiter and then a "content strategy deep dive", which wasn't much different from a portfolio review. Then I had to do a writing exercise. After, I was brought into the office for 3 in-person interviews plus a lunch. One was called a portfolio review and one a content strategy deep dive, but they were pretty much the same thing, just with different people. They did give me the option of whether or not I wanted to present my exercise. Overall, it was tough to get a true feel for what it would have been like to work there. I could tell they were trying to do the right thing, but their process just was still in very amateur stages.
