    Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charleston, SC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charleston, SC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Createspace in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by recruiter initially through linked In who didn't do any pre-screening. Recruiter set up a phone interview with someone from createspace that I would be working with, but didn't provide much details as to what the interview would entail other than to be near a computer. Interviewer called promptly and asked some normal questions about background and difficult experiences, then asked some more technical questions about programming and finally asked me to sign on to a collaborative programming website to write some code.

    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Charleston, SC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Charleston, SC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Createspace in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn. I was setup for a telephone interview. The person called me at the prescribed time. She asked me the most "canned" HR questions, such who was my most difficult employee, what was my best feature, etc. I was frankly very surprised by the lack of imagination in a company that is owned by Amazon. She acted very offended by my question about the salary toward the end of the interview. It has been a long time since I have had such a bad interview. She was most definitely not experienced in current interview approaches, especially for a phone interview. She did not have a copy of my resume either. Really bad form.

    Vendor Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Createspace in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process for a management position is an initial phone interview with HR, followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager, followed by a day long in-person interview. HR was very nice to work with. I did not receive a couple of emails that were supposed to have been sent to me despite having checked my spam folder. In my case, there was 1 specific aspect of my candidacy that was likely a deal killer, the lack of direct reports I have overseen in my career. Overall I would say that this was a very standard cookie cutter process and was a pleasant experience.
