    Pros

    - The culture is great;
    - Its is an open-source project;

    - HR is terrible, will do their best not to help you;
    - Management is hard to read and makes contestable decisions;
    - There is a lack of internal communication.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Mozilla in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    A phone interview followed by a 2.5 hour face to face interview. I was asked to meet with a separate team as there were two available roles. Although I felt the interviews went well as I was well prepared, I could tell one of the managers did not like one of my answers and thought it too 'recruiter-y'. The role description was vague and the team was also a big vague on what they were looking for. All interviewers were very friendly albeit a bit unorganized.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were not difficult, but the technical recruiter did ask if web architecture was understood.   View Answer
