    Senior Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at ChannelAdvisor.

    Interview Details

    Applied via their website and was contacted by a recruiter within the company. I had a brief phone interview with the recruiter and later a member of the team. During the phone interviews, it was clear that I more than met the requirements and needs of the position. I was invited in for a face to face interview. The staff were unenthusiastic, disengaged and had a negative attitude throughout the entire interview. There were no in depth technical questions and nothing substantive in terms of trying to determine technical ability.

    I applied online – interviewed at ChannelAdvisor.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, had a friend currently working there as referrer. The recruiting team is very responsive and professional. Because it is a intern position, interview questions are relatively easy. Two question that I can remember, one is how to invert a string; the other one is how to find the first 20 largest numbers in a array.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at ChannelAdvisor.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a call about 2 days later. They were very nice and professional. The first interview was normal. They asked general question and it took around 30 minutes. I was then asked to interview with a hiring manager. He turned out to be awesome! We spoke about the company and the career path provided. After that I was asked to come in for a face to face interview. There I met with 5 people. The process from 9am to noon. It was long, but all the mangers were great and you could tell they really loved their jobs. Great process!

    Sales Director for Upcoming Seattle Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at ChannelAdvisor in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    ChannelAdvisors ripped me off for $500! They tried to rip me off for $1000! Stay Away!

    I did two phone interviews, then I was invited to fly down for a final round of interviews. First red flag was that I was asked to buy my own plane tickets, for which they assured me I would be reimbursed at the end of the month. As it turned out, I fell sick the day of my interviews and THEY REQUESTED that we reschedule. So I agreed, but it took them 2 months to schedule the next meeting. During this time they informed me that they wouldn't reimburse my plane tickets UNTIL AFTER I CAME FOR AN INTERVIEW. Who does this? I had bought expensive ($1000), non-reimbursable plane tickets at the last moment, because that is when I was told to buy them. I could've bought even more expensive reimbursable plane tickets, but I didn't think that would be necessary - my big mistake. Ultimately I decided I didn't want to work for a company that treated new hire candidates this way - imagine how they would treat me as an actual employee!

    Interview Questions
    • ChannelAdvisors refused to reimburse me for the plane ticket when i asked them to, finally they agreed to pay for half of it, but only after their HR admin had a nervous breakdown on the phone with me and accused me of "threatening her". So now I've got a useless travel voucher I'll never use and I'm $500 in the hole for agreeing to meet with this company.

      All in all the experience was PSYCHO with this company, borderline illegal, and they clearly showed their stripes in terms of how much they value potential candidates and by extension, employees.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ChannelAdvisor.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted and interviewed by HR. Then about 2 weeks later I was interviewed by 4 employees for about 2 hours. About half of the interview was what I expected; talking about past experiences, how I solved problems, and significant accomplishments. The other half was not really what I expected and was a series of questions asking me to regurgitate textbook definitions about software development. To me this indicated the lack of interviewing experience/intelligence of the individuals conducting the interview. Everything I read about the organization indicated that they were a talented group of software developers so I was really expecting more conceptual based questions. If had known I was going to be asked to provide textbook definitions I would have spent the previous week memorizing them, which would only serve to prove that I can memorize things. Not too impressed even if there had been an offer I wold not have taken it.

    Campaign Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at ChannelAdvisor.

    Interview Details

    Unfortunately, I had two bad experiences with CA. I was first contacted by HR though LinkedIn. Sent resume'. Phone call with HR went well. Then in-person interview...but the hiring manager wasn't there so I was basically handed off to some poor guy who had no interest in my resume or skills and just walked me around the office to show me around (and probably stalling so the real hiring manager could show up, which he did not). I was then "interviewed" by three "team members." They really didn't know how to interview (and shouldn't have...it's not their job), so they were just complimentary and nice to me (BTW, none of them are still there). Several weeks go by, with no word, then the form email "it was a tough decision, but...blah, blah." I contact HR to let her know that it was unacceptable, the way I was treated and that I should have had my interview rescheduled due to the hiring manager's absence. She totally agreed but someone was already hired (who I found out had actually worked with one of the managers at a different company...so, I was basically an also-ran from the get-go, as she was their preferred candidate from the start).

    A few weeks go by and the same HR contacts me for another interview and a different position, this time in email marketing (an odd position for that company). She sets up a call with that hiring manager (no longer at the company), who spends most of our "phone interview" telling me about all the business trips he has planned in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Melbourne, etc. BUT, he thinks I'd be a great fit and really wants me to come in for an in-person...which (*gasp*) never happened. A few more emails to HR, who basically lets me know that, yes, I've been screwed again, and someone was hired before I could actually come in to interview!

    A few more weeks go by. Another email by the same HR (also no longer at the company), saying they have another position available and they'd like me to come in again. (Seriously? Are you kidding me?)
    I sent her a nice but terse letter saying I had no interest in ever talking to them again.

    Screwed not once, but twice with Channel Advisor, and possibly could have been screwed over thrice! The whole thing was an exercise in futility. Then again, none of the offenders in this tragedy are actually still at the company...if that tells you anything.
