    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rearden Commerce (Scottsdale, AZ).

    Interview

    2 interviews, very personable Director interviewing or, should I say, selling the dream. And that's what he did. I was not familiar with this company; had never heard of them so he spent more time selling me than I him. Unfortunately I bought in and wasted 6 months of my professional life on an opportunity that was not worthwhile. It was common for new training classes to start off with 20 and by the end of the first week on the floor have only a few left.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Rearden Commerce (Foster City, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and then was contacted by a recruiter. The phone interview was standard - basic screening questions. Later was scheduled an onsite interview with executive level manager and hiring manager. The executive level manager was sick, so I had to do a conference call with him. The recruiter seemed really friendly at first. But after the interview with the hiring manager, the recruiter's tone changed from friendly to a bit standoffish. Also, the hiring manager did not seem eager to do the interview, whether it be she was tired (as she mentioned during the interview) or she didn't like me. There was one part of the interview when she talked about the history of the company and how morale has changed since a previous lay-off, so I do respect and appreciate her honesty and openness about the company.

    Everyone that I came in contact with (from other departments) seemed to be very nice and helpful. When I was standing in the lobby, at least 3 employees came and asked if I needed help or wanted some water.

    The recruiter mentioned that they would make a final decision the following week and she would let me know. I never heard from the recruiter again despite my follow-up emails.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Rearden Commerce (Foster City, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    They really like to drag you along with a carrot on a rope. I was part of a group interview session, and I have since spoken with others that interviewed with me that day and their experiences were similar. One candidate never received a response positive/negative afterwards. And me and two others were told that we were their top choice and they indicated they were just waiting for the CTO to make an offer. Eight weeks later I was finally informed that they are "restructuring" and are no longer accepting candidates.

    My recommendation, don't waste your time with this company, as they will surely waste yours.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Rearden Commerce (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two calls - one by the internal recruiter and the other by the Director of Product Management. The interview was arranged in a timely manner and I was able to go in on a short notice and have several discussions with team members of the group - Engineering Head, Director, UI, PM staff etc.

    The interview consisted of mostly behavioral interviewing along with some technical questions on how difficulties were handled.

    Interview Questions

    • The position requires interacting with multiple high demanding customers - why do you think you can handle it and how would you prioritize on customers requests and engineering mandate   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Rearden Commerce (Scottsdale, AZ) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Went through 5 phone interviews and 3 follow-up calls. Was told I was ideal for the position and my current work fits in perfectly with what the open position required. On the last phone call, I was told that they didn't want to hold me back from doing other things so they decided to pass. Their concerns were raised after I told them I was looking for a new position for advancement opportunities down the road. My current position offers no growth so basically anything would have been a good fit for me, especially a position that entails exactly what I've been doing professionally for a leader in technology and it's market for the past 3 years. As long as advancement would come around eventually with Rearden, I would have been perfectly comfortable with taking on a similar position to my current one. I guess they're not interested in having trained professionals working for them.
