    Associate Country Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Indeed.

    Interview Details

    I applied and got contacted by an HR rep about 2 weeks later asking me to complete a writing exercise. We set up a time through email, and about 15 mins past our agreed time, they sent me a Word document containing the following questions (listed below). The instructions were to complete the questions and send them back within an hour, which I did.

    1. Answer in English:
    What are the 3 improvements Indeed could make to its site to better serve job seekers and why?

    2. Please translate the text below into XXX:
    How seriously do we take site simplicity at ZipRecruiter?
    So seriously, we have on multiple occasions REMOVED wholly built features because they weren’t receiving wide enough adoption by our customers.
    Therefore while it may seem like a no-brainer to add LinkedIn and Indeed Apply buttons to the site, we took nothing for granted.
    After a two-week A/B test last February, we reached statistical significance and concluded that adding the two apply buttons increased the overall volume of applications by 5%.
    That was against a run rate of 200k+ applications, so a 5% lift was an additional 10k applications per month.
    To put the magnitude of that win into perspective, were ZipRecruiter to try to buy enough traffic to generate 10k incremental applications it would cost us between $20k -$30k. This was a big win.

    3. Answer in English
    What is your favorite app and why?

    4. Answer in XXX:
    Write a brief follow up addressed to HR rep in XXX explaining what you will bring to the Indeed team.

    The next day I was contacted by the same HR rep asking to set up a phone interview. On the day of the interview they called me on time, and the interview lasted for about 25-30 mins. Nothing too complicated, questions were very specific to the role (whether I knew certain programs,etc)--no behavioral questions were asked. The rep seemed nice and polite; however, I couldn't help but notice his/hers demeaning manner of speaking. I had a very sour feeling after I hung up the phone. Even though they assured me that they would respond in 24 hrs, no response was received. This overall interview experience left quite an unfavorable impression about the company and I wouldn't be inclined to accept an offer or apply again.

    The salary they are offering for this position is in low 40s.

    Client Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Indeed in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by the Talent Management Representative via email and quickly set up a phone interview with her, which lasted about 20-30 minutes. It mostly entailed talking about my experience, the position I was applying for, the company and its history, etc. Toward the end of the phone interview I was asked to come in later that week and interview in the offices in Stamford.

    I met with the same woman I interviewed with on the phone and she answered any initial questions I had going into a series of interviews with different members of the client support team. I met with three members of the team that day back-to-back-to-back. The length of each of them depended completely on the conversation, as it was obvious they only had a couple questions to ask and were really looking to have a dialogue. After all that, she came back in and wrapped it up and expressed interest in moving onto the next stage of the interview process.

    The third phase was a skills assessment done online through a link the company provided. It gave situations in which a person in this position might encounter and evaluated the responses. It took about a half hour.

    After that, I was asked to come back in and do another series of interviews with two more members of the team. Again, they lasted as long as the conversations that were taking place. After that, I was told that I would be contacted after the client support team collaborated.

    I was offered the position probably 3 or 4 days later, contingent on a background check, and was ultimately chosen shortly after I submitted my consent for the check.

    Interview Questions
    • It was more of a conversation with everyone I talked to than a formal interview. It went back and forth but was not broken up into the interviewer asking a question, pause, then me answering. All of the interviews focused on getting to know me and seeing if I would be a fit for Indeed.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Indeed ended up offering me more money than I asked for initially.

    Interview Details

    Austin, Tx - super unprofessional, had to send multiple emails to remind them about phone interview times, canceled my on site interview with 1 hr to spare, didn't notify me after final interview until week after (promised 2 days) and have still not received feedback after scheduling a call. If you like professional/respectable employers, look elsewhere. Organized and run like a startup.

    Interview Details

    Phone Interview/Interview with Sales Directors. Just make sure you prepare and are energetic. There were no surprises in my interview and the conversations were nice. The sales directors are very nice and straightforward. I had a gap between my last major sales job and they were concerned about that. The office is very nice and it looks like a fun place to work.

    Sales Interview

    I applied online - interviewed at Indeed.

    Interview Details

    Basically received an email saying that I would receive a call from Indeed for a first round interview. The call never came, and I'm fairly thankful. I have a friend who was recently employed and her experiences were those captured by the negative reviews on this site. The fact that they never called or never followed up shows their calibre of professionalism.

    Client Support Specialist - Ad Agencies Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Indeed in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Someone set up a time when I could interview. I got a call right on schedule from an Indeed rep, and was asked the basic questions about if I knew the position, why I wanted it, etc. They went over my resume, particularly areas of interest, then ended by saying that she'd talk it over 'with the team' and see where to go from there.

    Nothing more than a typical screening that went badly.
