    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Kaltura (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    This interview process started on November 18th and just came to a close yesterday February 9th. The company had a very difficult time defining this role. The first interview was via telephone with the company HR liaison and an outside leadership and development coach, . After the telephone conversation I was asked to come in and meet with the HR liaison for 30 minutes so she could meet me face to face before meeting the CFO and CEO.
    After the 30 minute interview more than a month went by and I was asked to come back in for another 30 minutes and this time their leadership and development coach was present. I had asked why the lapse in time and they told me "we were really trying to clearly define the role" Once this 3rd meeting concluded, I was told to expect a call to set aside a time to meet with the CEO the following week while he was in town. Two weeks went by and an interview was arranged by the liaison to meet with the CEO during their "sales summit". A couple of days prior to the interview with the CEO I received this email from their leadership and development coach

    CEO is looking forward to seeing you tomorrow at 11am. Please call Allison if you have any trouble getting in.

    Just as a heads-up before meeting with the CEO, I think he is clear that he wants someone with a tech / start-up background in this role so whatever you can do to highlight your experiences that are relevant to the “scrappiness” and entrepreneurial feel of a start-up would be very beneficial.

    Good luck!

    I showed up for my interview with the CEO, and from the very start it was evident that he was in a hurry not at all engaged in the discussion... he was on his phone texting or answering emails and it was very distracting. He was not at all welcoming in any way. I felt as if I had taken him away from something very pressing and that this interview was simply a formality. It was extremely uncomfortable and he was extremely unprofessional. Hiring the right HR person is paramount for any organization and this interview is a clear indication on why they still don't have the person and how they most likely will not hire the right person. When the interview concluded he stood up and walked away, he did not shake my hand or assist me on how to exit the building.
    A week later, I received the email below.

    After meeting with our few favorite candidates last week, the CEO has decided to go in a different direction (he really enjoyed meeting with you, by the way!). It seems he is looking for even more international and "scrappy" start-up / tech experience. If I get any more detailed feedback, I'm happy to pass that along.

    I want to thank you for going through this process with us and for your time and energy (and patience!). I wish you all the very best as you discover your next role - whichever company that ends up being will be lucky to have you!

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Kaltura (San Francisco, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Since I was out of state, I had a number of phone calls over a few weeks. It ended up being 5+ calls, which I thought was a bit excessive. The position was new, but they dragged out the process while making it feel urgent for me to respond quickly. I went through the same hour-long talk with 4 different people, and few asked different questions. They could have just planned better and all jumped on a call together, would have been much more respectful of my time.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to do a short exercise in excel to make sure that I was up to the position, as it was a new one at the company.   Answer Question
