    Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richardson, TX (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Richardson, TX (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AppFolio in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the internal recruiter based in their Richardson, TX office and spoke for around 20 minutes regarding my background, skills, comp ratio, etc. At the end of the call I was invited to come into their office the following week and interview with the hiring VP.

    My conversation with the hiring manager went well and I was informed they would contact me the following week with next steps. Next week came and went with no contact. I emailed and never received a response where I had requested feedback.

    Judging by the office demographic, if you are over 30 years old, don't bother to apply. Overall environment is small and reminded me of my freshman college days.

    One phone interview with HR about behavior questions, and other 3-turn interviews with engineer, leader engineer and CTO. All the questions are not so difficult, but tricky. Just to make sure your codes are clean enough without bugs!

    Business Developer - Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AppFolio in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Pathetic process as they build you up to come in - they tell you your history and background are a perfect fit - as you come in your greeted by a sales room and then interviews by 2 managers who seem either brand new to interviewing or just not used to dealing with people (kinda scary that they are the sales managers). The questions are actually decent but interview seems to be somewhat of a joke to them - After the interview if your not hired they will not give you feedback or respond to your request for follow up (think about the customer or PROSPECT who seems soooo interested then suddenly its like they died and you never hear from them again) probably (other than multiview ) the rudest company Ive ever dealt with in my life . - if you are actually a killer at inside sales you may be better off applying somewhere else as it seems that they like to hire low ballers and bottom of the barrell sales reps (I know some of them)... my guess (and I mean GUESS because I cant get a response) the management doesnt like hiring anyone that threatens their job. And YES I am very offended !

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at AppFolio in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for the Software Engineer Intern position and within approximately a week I had a initial phone screen with a member of the HR team. She was very kind and after that she set me up with a one hour technical phone interview with a senior member of the engineering team. The technical phone interview lasted about 40 minutes and covered questions on my background as well as questions relating to sorting, data management, and object-oriented programming. I was rejected at the end of the technical interview, but the interviewer was very nice about it.

    Agile Facilitator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Site (Ghana)
    Anonymous Employee in Site (Ghana)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at AppFolio.

    Interview Details

    They admittedly weren't sure what they were looking for in terms of this position and future company growth. I'm guessing by interviewing a variety of candidates they were able to say "yay" or "nay" until they found what they think would fit best. It was excessive to have 8 interviews with 10 employees, so I just had to look at it from the perspective that I was meeting new people and gaining interview experience. In some ways, I feel like my interviews drove a more serious look within the company to figure out what they really wanted. Glad I could help :)

    Interview Questions
    • They were looking at all overall background and experience. They desired someone with experience in an agile development environment. I was given feedback indicating they were interested in someone with a proved track record in education and/or coaching others. They seemed less interested in someone who might be familiar with software engineers and other technical positions even though the role would involve facilitating and interacting most with this type of employee.   Answer Question

    User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Barbara, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at AppFolio in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Staff I interviewed with were very flaky. Multiple staff members missed interview times on multiple occasions with me and my references that they requested to speak to. Interview process took 60+ days. They NEVER communicated to me when they said they would. During interviews when I asked product folks about how they were improving their product (site filled with obvious bugs, non functional App.) they all changed subject to discuss another product they were working on. Would be a good work place for younger professionals who like to play with nerf guns but does not appear to be a good place for seasoned professionals. Smart engineering team seems to run the show. Seems to be some process work issues between design and Eng. teams Overall, Nice people and they all seem to enjoy working together but lack serious professional experience.
