    Professional Services Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Okta in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Despite positive ratings on glassdoor, I had a pretty bad experience. I had 3 phone interviews with various leveled people and one local 1:1 interview. The next step would of been to fly me out to HQ for final rounds but I did not even get that far. I asked for feedback as all my interviews went well and the response was that I did not have enough experience. Really? You could not tell by my resume or first interview that I 'did not have enough experience' and continue to lead me on? Very upsetting

    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Okta in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very positive experience. Recruiter was informative, available, and supportive throughout the process. Started with a 30 minute phone screen with the recruiter. Moved on to a pretty standard on-site interview process. Four 1-on-1 interviews, 30 minutes each, 2 hours total. They all just acted like themselves, which made me feel comfortable. Good balance between cordiality and down-to-business attitude. Honest in answering my questions about the position, team, company. Next step was a mock sales presentation/ sales development call. Had to present the product and vet a lead. After that, I was offered the position. I was still hesitant, so the recruiter coordinated phone calls with two other people in the company so that I could ask more questions, here different perspectives, and make an informed decision. They were keen on making sure I was comfortable making my decision and was making it for the right reasons.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Okta in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process took about 30 days. I was referred by an Okta employee - which seems the only way to get a job with an established startup. The recruiter was great and transparent about process. It was a straight forward process but slow to hire. Steps included a 30 minute phone call with a Recruiter, In Person Interview with 4 people (individually). A 30 minute Preso. Skills & Personality Assessment online that took about 90 minutes. Negotiation. Offer.
