San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Bonfire in November 2010.

Interview Details – The company tells you at the beginning of the interview process that it can take up to 5 months from the first interview to the potential job offer, which is actually true. Interviews consist of 1:1 casual chats with each key team member and offer the candidate an opportunity to connect with each person and gauge the personality/culture of the company. Pleasant experience, kind and creative people, but be prepared for a long and drawn-out interview.

Operations Development Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bonfire in November 2009.

Interview Details – The interview process began with a short phone interview and then booked a meeting with the development head. In the first interview the questions were very focused on background and skill set. i did not have the background they were looking for but had some transferable skills so they asked me to come in again and meet with accounts and the CEO. I had the first meeting with the account head and the CEO canceled on me. I guess it was something I said... :) The main thing they are focused on here is skill set. If oyu have the exact background they are looking for I would go for it but if not then I would be careful as it may be a waste of time. A friend of mine had the same experience. After the interview i never heard from them again. No follow up call or email after I reached out twice to them. Which actually surprised me considering they touted what an amazing communications organization they were - I guess it is the classic the cobbler's children have no shoes story...

Interview Question – Nothing really difficult or unexpected - very general about background - have the RIGHT background and you will do great!   View Answer
