    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brightedge Technologies.

    Interview

    Email with a colleague referral. Primary phone call and then a follow up. The interviewer never got back to me but I also never sent in a thank you note. Was not too motivated by the company overall.

    Enterprise Business Representative Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Brightedge Technologies (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Starts with a basic phone interview with an HR representative who screens you and passes you on to the account executive you will be working with. Interestingly they have you do a research project on a random company to produce leads and to submit a mock sales email and voicemail. Afterwards they have you take an online test that you have to pass in order to keep going through the interview process. Lastly you go to an in person interviewer with the account executive you would work with as well as either a phone call or a skype call with the director of hiring in California. I made it up to this part before they decided that I wasn't a proper fit. Which was a disappointment to be honest I was genuinely excited to work here. Good luck to those who apply.

    Interview

    No transparency about interview process. As well as lie about OTE. Three different people gave me completely different OTE potential. Unprofessional and unorganized recruiting team. Interview questions had no structure and was kind of a joke. Online assessment, two phone screens, role play presentation with no preparation and the process moves very fast aggressive because it's a chop shop business with crappy office space.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Brightedge Technologies (San Mateo, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The screening and interview process was swift. Initially, I spoke with a recruiter over the phone, and it was more of an informative call than anything. The recruiter scheduled me for a phone screen with a sales manager the very next day. A week later, I went in for a series of onsite interviews.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Brightedge Technologies (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was sought out through LinkedIn, and began the process in December of 2014. The process ended in March 2015. I was looking to work in New York although they had recruited me for the San Mateo office. The interview process was fairly intensive - multiple phone interviews, online skills assessments, and finally an in-person in New York. The company was generous enough to fly me out to New York and cover all expenses. Following the in-person interview, I played phone tag with my recruiter for WEEKS. It was nearly impossible to get a straight answer out of the company, and I was holding out on other job offers. Ultimately went with a different company - but still to this day I don't know whether or not I got a job offer. I understand that they had multiple candidates and were delaying a decision in the New York office, but it is unprofessional to hold out information and lead candidates on.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Brightedge Technologies.

    Interview

    Two preliminary phone calls. They then set up a 2 hour long Skype interview where you interview with 4 different team members for about 30 minutes each. They ask the typical interview questions along with one or two "outside the box" questions that are supposed to gauge your thought process on analyzing complex problems. Waited 2 weeks to hear back from the Skype interview. Finally got a brief email saying they were going to continue seating other candidates. It was a waste of time in terms of not getting the offer, but the challenging interview gave me some good interview experience moving forward. I just wish they hadn't left me waiting for 2 weeks... they probably knew they weren't going to hire me right after the Skype interview.
