    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zalando in March 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted resume, and skype interview. It has a lot of behavior questions, and went through your resume. It was about 20 minutes give or take, and they are really nice and curious to know me. They also asked about some certain points on the resume, and asked me to proposed a plan to generate the projection for the next two weeks.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zalando (New York, NY (US)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me, which turned into a Skype chat.

    This was followed by a Skype interview with another recruiter, who then signed me up for a Codility online test.

    The coding test had no real relevance to what I would be working on, this part of the process felt silly and condescending.

    Finally, 3 separate hour long Skype coding interviews on the same day.

    I got to code in two of these interviews, which went great.

    I bombed the last of these where I had a sour and negative interviewer who vetoed me.

    Product Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zalando in March 2018.

    Interview

    Someone from HR reached out and set up a video call with two members of team. The interview included some fit questions and some questions about my previous experiences. There was also a puzzle question in German.

    They ask about salary expectations right up front. Anyone with economics training knows this is really terrible practice towards applicants, given the info asymmetries during job search process. My guess is that they will take the cheapest person with the baseline level of skills. They're not looking for great people.

    One other thing, I asked for and they provided feedback which I thought was very nice and uncommon.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Zalando (New York, NY (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    First interview went ok, but on technical interview felt a bit of arrogance by the interviewers and lack of focus on what the role should be about. Sad to have such experience because first interviews were with cool people.

    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berlin (Germany)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zalando (Berlin (Germany)).

    Interview

    I had an initial interview with their senior or head of recruiting who asked me some basic questions on the role, then she pointed out my recruiting experience and told me that she thought I'd be better suited for that position and if I'd like to be considered for the role. All appeared to go well after that and I was invited to the next stage of the process to have an interview with another senior team member who told me upfront that he wasn't prepared for our conversation. It appeared I passed this stage and was invited to the office to have an interview. 40 minutes before I left I was called and informed that they didn't know if the interview would actually take place, I had to take the initiative and reach out to the first recruiter who interviewed me to find out if I should come in or not. Was simply a mess and when I told them I had taken another role they asked if I would come in for another interview because they actually really liked me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zalando (Berlin (Germany)).

    Interview

    Very easy with a manager, not really included a practical test. The test was more a tour together with the team leader who decided to take you or not, personality matters I guess.
