    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Classified Ventures (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I went through 3 phone interviews; the interviewer was excellent and I received her vote and confidence for multiple projects. Twice they found an internal candidate, The third time they were willing to start a contract at 1 week; I was able to extend that. A 1 week contract raises concerns about the work culture and project issues the company must be aware of.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Classified Ventures (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Quick Process for interview. However after being hired, specifics mentioned in the interview, was not the work reality. Some of this was specific to my manager and micromanaging of resources. Other teams seemed to have more flexibility. This manager is no longer employed there so situation may have improved.

    Interview Questions

    • None. Interview was more of a conversation. Interview was not long or detailed, liked my background, seemed very positive. Actual work environment did not reflect what was portrayed in the interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Was told WFH possible, but ultimately my manager was not very flexible on this. Although their expectation was that you had to work evening hours to accommodate late night deployments you were still expected to b in the office at same time in the morning. I believe this was specific to the manager I reported too. Other IT teams seemed to have more flexibility in this area.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Classified Ventures (Chicago, IL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Was called after a job fair for a phone interview. This led to an interview at the office. The interview was fairly long about 30 min with 4 different representatives. The questions asked were very broad and focused mainly on past experiences. The representatives were very nice and very professional. After four rounds of questioning they take you to the area where you would reach out to general managers and dealer principals and let you listen to a few calls.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Classified Ventures (Chicago, IL) in June 2010.

    Interview

    They telephone portion of the interview was two-part, once to be screened by HR and the second by the IT Director, the hiring manager. There was a general tech screening in the call and again by the direct reports in the later interview. The day of the interview was a bit disorganized, with people unsure of when and where they were interviewing and with one member of the panel calling in sick but then still showing up at the end. All parties were indicating that it was a good fit and that they wanted to schedule a second interview, but was called after the weekend and told that they were no longer interested. Very disappointing, and no explanation as to the abrupt change because the hiring manager was out of town.
