    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MarkLogic (Washington, DC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Met with hiring manager two weeks ago; His manager yesterday along with HR. The interview took a couple of weeks to set up, since the second line manager was traveling the two weeks prior. They could not have been nicer in setting up the arrangements for me to fly down to the interview, including putting me up at a very nice hotel and covering my meals and transportation while I was in town. In the narrative below, I describe that I didn't get the offer, only because GlassDoor needs to add another option that says "still going through the process"; instead of "end game only" type results.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at MarkLogic (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Strange - interviewer had a very high opinion of himself - asked me a question - told me that he would not have answered this way - proceeded to tell me how he would have answered - then gave an answer to a completely different question than the one he asked me! Preferred to tell me about himself that to listen to my history. I would never want to work with this guy.

    Principal Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Carlos, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at MarkLogic (San Carlos, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring manager emailed to schedule a phone screen for next week. After a brief conversation an onsite interview was scheduled. Manager asked me to read a 300 page NoSQL for Dummies written by MarkLogic and an 80 page white paper. I received an email from HR asking I complete an application, background check release and NDA which I felt was premature before arriving for the first on site interview. Arrived at MarkLogic HQ without any problems since building is visible from CA freeway 101. I was told there are over 100 employees at HQ but I only saw 7 including the 4 directors who interviewed me that day. The office was dead quiet. We exchanged business cards and the hiring manager asked if my business card was still current implying did I still work there? The next stage would have been my giving a sales presentation but someone with MarkLogic hands on experience was chosen over me. I asked HR if other candidates were also asked to provide a completed application, NDA and permission to do a background check. No response ever received.

    Interview

    Nice team. Tell the candidate not much about the job: While you don't want to dominate the interview time, you should start with a brief summary of the position, including the prime responsibilities, reporting structure, key challenges, and performance criteria. This will help the candidate provide relevant examples and responses.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at MarkLogic (Dallas, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process, in my case, lasted about 6 weeks. The ML team did a good job of vetting me during that time. I consider this a plus as they expect you to play a key role in developing the business. It was clear to me that, although MarkLogic is a key player in the space, they cultivate a small company culture.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MarkLogic (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    A fellow coworker from a previous job referred me to MarkLogic and from there the process was very quick - from referral to initial contact was no more than two days. After two phone screens (one technical and one more focused on soft skills), I was asked to visit the Tysons Corner office for an in-person interview. Again, this happened very quickly - within a matter of days I interviewed with 2 consulting managers and at last one consultant. Asked back again, I met with several more individuals in the consulting practice - from consultants to management. All were very professional and the questions were a combination of how I would address a theoretical problem on the ground to technical approaches in consulting. There were no out of bounds questions and all seemed well prepared and thought out.

    Interview Questions

    • One question focused very specifically on how I would approach a performance issue with a web site - the question was very open ended and was posed to determine how best to determine the root cause and ways to resolve it.   1 Answer

    Received a call for a position I did not apply for. The recruiter asked several questions and emphasized the stock equity and benefits. He did not like my employment history but I countered that my company sells product not consulting time. Recruiter then setup phone interview with hiring manager the following week. The hiring manager commented 'you only designed simple models'. I had to correct him.
