    Senior Software Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lifesize.

    Interview Details

    Standard process. Initially contacted by HR for first screen. Then interviewed with hiring manager a week or so later. After the interview, I received no feedback from HR. When I contacted them to ask if they made a decision, I received no reply. No professional courtesy was given even to answer my emails. It was just a big waste of time.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. I came to the conclusion that the hiring manager had no ideas on what products they were going to develop. Was very evasive when I asked questions.   View Answer

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lifesize in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    The recruiters at Lifesize are pretty good about making first contact and reaching out to you immediately if they feel you're a good fit based on your resume, experience, cover letter, etc. The first call is fairly informal and like most new interview processes this call is very short and sweet.

    After this point, you'll be asked to come in and have a short conversation with one of the hiring managers or some other higher level employee there. This is still a relatively short 30 minute face to face where you discuss your experience and they tell you a little about the role and the company.

    The final step is by far the most difficult. You'll be there for upwards of 3 hours interviewing with 3 to 4 different people ranging from peers, to whoever will be your manager. Everybody takes a different approach on their role as the 'interviewer'; some will be easy-going and relaxed while others will drill you with whatever questions they come up with.

    Many of the questions revolve around your work ethic and values. They don't necessarily care too much about your technological knowledge of the product since video conferencing is fairly new to a lot of people.

    The phone interview was quite short and very straight to the point, though the recruiter was friendly and non-intimidating. General questions like: what do you know about the company, some questions referenceing your resume, etc... For this position, the hiring manager requested a portfolio, and they followed up with me a few days later.

    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Lifesize in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Spoke to 6 people in total from the person who would be my direct boss, senior sales management, potential colleagues, managers from other sales divisions and HR. Interview process was pretty rigorous.

    They did their best to put the pressure on, particularly the managers of other divisions. Seemed to want to ask questions that had multiple possible answers and wanted to see how I coped with it. People were very friendly and HR did a good job of keeping me informed of the process.
