Client Services Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Nashville, TN

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Eventbrite in March 2014.

Interview Details – The process was smooth and moving from step to step was fairly quick. I received a notification of no offer quickly but I think that was because they were wanting to move quickly. For those who reach the phone interview and scenario, brush up on the platform. I was one of the few recently who got the last question correct according to the recruiter.

The 1:1 interviews were fairly relaxed. There was some awkwardness but that was mostly situational.

I just wish my "over experience" was ruled out before I went through the entire process...

Interview Question – If you want to build in the fees of Eventbrite when creating a ticket price, how do you do that?   View Answer

Client Service Representative Interview

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Eventbrite in March 2014.

Interview Details – Had a phone interview which was very strange. The interviewer seemed extremely unprepared, disengaged, distant and uninterested throughout the entire interview. There was miscommunication between the company and the interviewer, which I will not go into specifics about. I was surprised that this particular company conducted interviews in this manner.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you received good customer service.   Answer Question

Account Management Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Eventbrite.

Interview Details – You will be contacted through a recruiter and go through 2 or 3 phone interviews. The first is a screen and is entirely about your background, knowledge of Eventbrite, business model, what makes it special etc. This first conversation will be with someone in the Acct. Mgmt. division. The second and potentially third call will be with an account manager. Tone is still conversation and you will go through the same basics and background about the company, will be much more detailed into the actual day-to-day of the account manager. Additionally, you will need to understand where Eventbrite stands in the ticketing industry and why they've been successful.

Interview Question – Tell me about an Eventbrite campaign you've started, and if you haven't used it give me a scenario in your life in which you could use it. Include target customers and service desired.   View Answer

Sales Interview

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Eventbrite in July 2012.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview a few years ago. Went alright but I guess not good enough. I than worked in account management in the entertainment field successfully for two years. I applied again and was swiftly denied. Kind of annoying but whatever. I already have multiple interviews with competitors.

People Operations Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Eventbrite.

Interview Details – I was contacted by the recruiter for an on-site interview. Had 3 1 on 1 interviews during the first round. It was pretty informal and a lot of the questions surrounded my previous work experience.

The second round was four 15-minute sessions with different members of the greater team. It was more of just getting to know everyone and their backgrounds. A lot of the questions were about your decision to apply for this position in general and why you chose Eventbrite. Also, they asked what you'd like to learn throughout the summer and like to talk about their culture and growth.

The interviewers were all very bright and are very specialized in their positions. Generally, it was a very nice experience and shows how quickly the company is growing.

People Operations Intern Interview

San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Eventbrite.

Interview Details – I applied online and it took about 2 weeks for them to get back to me about a phone screen. I spoke with a lady in HR and she was impressed so I a 2nd round interview with other members of the HR team- each 30 mins long.

It was very informal and they weren't very transparent with what skills they were looking for because the responsibilities weren't clearly defined. Sort of ambiguous because they had never had this role before.

Difficult Interview

Senior Mobile Software Engineer Interview

Senior Mobile Software Engineer
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Eventbrite in April 2013.

Interview Details – From first contact everyone was really warm and embracing, the process was much faster than on similar bay area companies. My first step was a phone conversation with the recruiter, then came a phone screen with the hiring manager. It was quite technical and fast paced, but I did well. After the phone screen the hiring manager sent me a coding homework that I was expected to solve and send back within a few days

After submitting the homework I had a full afternoon of Skype interviews with 4 different members of the team and the VP of Engineering. It gave me a great opportunity to get a sense of the people I would be working with and the challenges they were tackling.

Then they flew me to San Francisco for a final round of interviews. I had lunch at the HQ with the people I met through Skype and then had 4 more interviews, the last two were with the President and the CEO.

Thoughtout the process the recruiter was really responsive and I knew where I stood every step of the way.

Interview Question – If you could go back two years with the knowledge you have now, what would you do differently?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The offer was competitive and I was satisfied with it, so I accepted.

Salesforce Administrator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and interviewed at Eventbrite.

Interview Details – Very unstructured and mediocre interview. The interviewer who was screening me for the position didn't seem very experienced. He talked for 20 mins, asked me a couple of questions and that was the end of it. Later on the recruiter got back to me saying I was not fit for this position, which is odd since I hardly got to say anything.

Interview Question – NA   Answer Question
