    Marketing Operations Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lithium Technologies (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    First round phone interview with recruiter. Second phone interview with Director. Final onsite interview with five employees, 30 minutes each. Everyone was friendly and happy to work at Lithium. I left feeling very confident and comfortable. I only have positive things to say about the employees who interviewed me, however I ended up receiving a very short (1 sentence), impersonalized rejection email from the recruiter which I found to be off-putting.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lithium Technologies (San Francisco, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Thorough but not hard. I had a good skills match so I think they were looking for a cultural fit. Interviewers ranged in abilities to conduct a good interview from very open to a dialogue vs. feeling obligated to full most of the time with their questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lithium Technologies (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Had three Phone interviews (recruiter, manager, and Sr. Director) and one on-site interview. I applied online for a different role, and the recruiter messaged me back with this opportunity.

    All interviews went really well - each one was longer than the last, and they were genuinely interested in me, my background, and what I could bring to the table.

    Interns, do yourselves a favor and apply here.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Lithium Technologies.

    Interview

    Initially was good then turned strange after a few calls. The onsite visit was also strange.
    I would say that be very careful when these Startups mention "Culture Fit" as this can be construde as discrimination. I am reviewing with EEOC what the guidelines are and my own personal experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Lithium Technologies (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Comfortable, but challenging. They asked the right questions. It's clear that culture fit is just as important as technical knowledge, skill-set and experience. Ample time for me to ask questions and ensure the job and company would be a great fit for me as well. Great communication from start to finish.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Lithium Technologies.

    Interview

    Very clean and transparent process. There were no surprises through out the entire process. I have been on interviews with several other companies where the person interviewing was not aware of what the next steps were going to be and it took weeks to get feedback. Lithium had a very systematic and clear process.

    Interview

    I had a great interview experience with Lithium, meeting people from all kinds of different teams at all levels of the organization (including a really nice sit-down with the CEO). The team were forthright and friendly and answered my questions in addition to questioning me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Lithium Technologies in October 2014.

    Interview

    Like anything in life worth pursuing, the interview process with Lithium was challenging. The level of detail, participation and preparation required on your behalf is going to be off the charts. However, as mentioned above, it's a worthwhile endeavor. Lithium is a special place, with strong values and extremely intelligent people, and they're intent on keeping it that way. For each step in the process, which there may be many, is a great opportunity for both sides to assess the level of fit and competence.

    The logistical side of the process was great. Interviews were organized professionally, lines of communication were consistently open, and there was a deep level of transparency. Overall, the hiring process with Lithium was fantastic.
