    Reasons for Declining

    HR Recruiting came in and offered me the full-time perm job as soon as my interview ended same day. However, the compensation pay she offered me was so low it was an insult. When I politely stated that I needed to think about it, she then offered me the position as a contractor but she refused to disclose what the contractor hourly rate would be. It seemed to me that they wanted to play games in making the offer so I just walked away.

    Senior Production Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Foster City, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Foster City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EFI in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone screen with an in-house recruiter. This was followed a week later with my first on-site interview. This lasted 4 hours, and I met with 5 different people (2 were over the phone as they worked in a different location). Then a week later, I was invited back for a second round of interviews. This also lasted about 4 hours, but was with a different group of people (except the hiring manager, who I met with both times). The work seemed like it would be somewhat tedious, but the team was mostly friendly, especially the manager. The office atmosphere was quite nice, with great bay views, but there didn't seem to be a lot of camaraderie in the team.
