Ellie Mae Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Tech Support Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ellie Mae in April 2013.
Interview Details – Initial contact was through a recruiting company. After this, a short phone interview took place where my Operations experience and team leadership was discussed. I was then invited out to the corporate office for a day long 'meet and greet' with multiple folks in various leadership positions.
Interview Question – The most unsettling visit was with the VP of Tech Support. No questions were asked - she said she just 'wanted to talk'. It was the least formalized visit of the day which was unexpected. View Answer
