Operations Manager Interview

Operations Manager
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at DataDirect Networks in January 2013.

Interview Details – In contact with recruiter over a four month period. Req was on and off again a few times. Constant apologies from the recruiter who was trying to pull it all together. Finally had face to face. They liked me, asked for references, discussed salary, indicated verbal offer was in process. Contacted references, completed background check then, Oh, then one more hurdle, back in for last minute interview with VP. He must have been having a bad day, not smiling, didn't go as well as I had hoped. Based on conflicting info from hiring manger and the VP, I concluded that the VP must be a micro-manager and would not have been an easy guy to work for anyway. He told me that I would have been given a cost reduction target of $XXX,000K and if I couldn't hit it in six months I would be gone. I didn't get a sense from anyone during any of my interviews that DDN would have been a present place to work. Even the hiring manager looked stressed during the interview. The day after my interview it was radio silence from recruiter. Very poorly coordinated process.

In hindsight, I'm glad I met the VP, I think I avoided a major career disaster.
