    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Arm.

    Interview

    The communication about the interview is a bit mess, I provided my availability but didn't get any feedback so I had to send a reminder and then they told me they couldn't meet during that period of time due to travelling, finally the series of interviews got scheduled different stakeholders lined up but just after the first interview with one peer, not the hiring manager, they told me all the following interviews were off without any further feedback but during the interview, the interviewer was showing very positive response of next steps. The hiring experience to me is not efficient and not as open and clear as they claimed.

    Product Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Arm in November 2019.

    Interview

    The interviewer did not know what I have done and background until he opened my portfolio.
    He was begun by judging my home page font and hover over latency. Then, he opened my project and critique the process is too long; The text is too much, and he does not want these content to been shown. From his perspective, product designers should only focus on the visual, pixel, and how things look like. He interrupts me several times and even not professional at all. I would not recommend this company for designers since their leader is narrow, judgmental, and arrogant.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Arm in November 2019.

    Interview

    This is the only interview that let me feel really uncomfortable!!!

    I interviewed product designer job of Treasure Data. The first interview is directly with the design director, and I was totally shocked by his reaction. He is starting from the judgments of my portfolio. Express his personal opinions of text, design, and structure. And he click into one of my project and said: why currently portfolio is look the same way? Why you show me so many process and less design? This is not the work for me... Be honest, I was interned and worked in many big tech company that valued research and design process, rather then visual works! He even told me “ Great design works do not need research!” I can not believe that is from a director‘s mouth. After that, he answered my question so roughly. I am so lucky to not work with this director who is not respect others work and opinionated.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Arm in November 2019.

    Interview

    It is a very weird, unprofessional and impolite HR interview. The HR person was very bad. He said that my portfolio website was not good. He said that he did not like my portfolio website. Also, he said the font I used on my portfolio website was not interesting. I did not feel very comfortable to be with him, and especially such a nitpick attitude to my portfolio website, not design project-focus, in an HR interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Arm (Seattle, WA (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I did 3 rounds of interview at Arm Treasure Data. The design team there is relatively small but the leader of the team is a skilled designer who has years of experience in the industry and generally a very good person. He taught me tons of new things in an interview. Although I did not get the offer in the end but it gave me an entirely different perspective to see UX design.
