    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Genscape (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Contacted via email by HR, phone interview with HR and in-person interview with 2 heads of the marketing department. Got to see the Boston office, which was pretty new and bustling. The two interviewers were difficult to read and mostly just fired off questions, but pleasant enough.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Genscape in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR about week after applying. I had one interview with HR and I thought it went well. At the end, the woman said my information would be forwarded to someone else so that a second interview would be set up. A week later I e-mailed her and she said they were still looking at profiles and to "stay tuned". Another week goes by and I message her again only to find out I had been passed over. It was dissappointing to be told I was moving on and to stay tuned only to be turned down. Its a shame because it looks like a great company and I wanted the chance to show my skills in person.

    The HR dept of Genscape is really friendly. They helped me in setting up an interview with the software engineering department. I had a phone interview as well as on-site interview. Most of the questions were based on my resume and the technologies I have worked with. They were interested in knowing how I approached different situations in previous projects. They are more keen on taking people having sound fundamental knowledge in programming languages.

    Natural Gas Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Genscape (Boulder, CO) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Initially received a call back from my online application from HR (Talent Acquisition Specialist) within a few days of submitting it. They were very helpful in explaining the company as a whole and what the initial interview process was going to be like. They were flexible in setting up a first interview at my earliest convenience. I was able to ask questions about the company over the phone, and they asked some preliminary basic questions about my resume and experience. My interview took place at the Boulder office and I interviewed with three employees on the gas team, one of them being my future manager. The interview went really smoothly and the interview was mainly a dialogue back and forth about my resume and work experiences and how that will translate into a role with the company. They did a good job of explaining what the company did, but my (future) job duties could have been better explained at the time of the interview. Besides that, when leaving the interview I instantly felt like I was a part of the Genscape team and felt confident I would receive an offer. I was able to talk with them about the work culture at Genscape in addition to the normal interview dialogue that takes place.
