    Analyst, Corporate Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Belkin in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Just to set the scene, the entire process was very drawn out because, as I was to find out later, the department and position were open to being restructured and redefined. The position I applied for was scrapped in favor of another newly created position. Additionally, communication was not very good during the process. I had to be diligent to get post interview information, and had a hard time contacting the internal recruiter (who was late for our in-person interview) after initial contact.

    Other than that it was an interesting an engaging experience. I was contacted initially by the in-person recruiter to set up an interview. It was about two weeks before I heard from him again to schedule the interview, and then we had the recruiter interview. He then scheduled an interview with the hiring manager, who, after the phone interview, tasked me with writing a summary analysis of a business problem (see below).

    I passed that and was invited for a full-panel interview with the key stakeholders in Corporate Development, Product Development, and IT. I interviewed with 5 people over 4 hours. I enjoyed the interview process, although I was unprepared for the hiring manager's business case interview question, and by the time I interviewed with him I was a little tired and off my game.

    After that, I did not hear back until I had contacted them several times. I was informed via email from the recruiter of the department and position changes.

    I didn't get the final "the position has been filled" email for another several months.

    Was initially introduced to Belkin through a technical placement agency. I interviewed by phone with the Engineering Manager. The interview was professional and very detailed in what was needed and what my roll was to be within the company. A detailed explanation of department roadmap was also shared which revealed what the future goals were for building within the organization. This was very helpful as well as inspiring.

    Demand Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Playa Vista, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Playa Vista, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Belkin in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    The only negative experience I had was that the initial process was pretty drawn out, as it took about two full months for me to start after my first interview. The interview process was pretty standard; two phone interviews with recruiter/HR, in-person interviews with one senior planner, two managers, and one director. The initial interview process was well organized by HR, and they did a great job in providing me with clear details on what to expect (time, parking instructions, agenda and even profile pictures of who I will be interviewing with).

    Interview Questions
    • Explain some of the models that you use to forecast (centered moving average, exponential smoothing)?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The process was drawn out too long from initial interview and offer letter to start date. Not sure if HR was backlogged, but it was the longest I ever waited to start after receiving the offer letter.
