    Recruiting Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Redbeacon in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen, mock interview

    Rarely would publicize however this company is insulting. X promised a second interview where I would mock screen one of their employees. I asked for resume, Skype confirmation, job description, background info and was ignored. Apparently winging interviews is the norm. Entering an interview without a resume, job description, understanding of the company will provide second rate results.

    Admin supposedly scheduled the interview but failed to inform me or the company employee unless the employee blew off the Skype call. I found out when I circled back to see what was happening.

    Later received an email from X stating I was no longer viable, based on the Admin's opinion, because they didn't like that I requested X contact me directly to discuss improving the mock interview.

    X didn't contact me to investigate or take responsibility for her team. X decided based on the coordinator's information. I wasn't judgmental, didn't know anything had been scheduled, and truly wanted to make the mock interview the best it could be. As a recruiting manager I'd be concerned about any recruiter or HM entering into an interview without preparing unless its special circumstances.

    I'm professionally tired of incompetent people holding jobs when so many who are capable can't find work. This cost me one of the few opportunities I had for a high level job.

    A Senior Manager apologized when I left a VM asking to speak to the CEO; however it corrects nothing for me.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Redbeacon in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online via posting on a job board. Got an email 7 days later from the HR recruiter saying she wanted to hear about my goals and Redbeacon. The call lasted about 30 minutes, during which the recruiter asked questions like:
    -Give an example of a product you worked on where you would’ve done something differently.
    -How often did you iterate at your previous job?
    -What is your ideal team?
    -Why did you leave your last position and why have you not found a new job yet?

    The recruiter didn't get back to me for 2 weeks. She apologized for the delay saying the company was reevaluating their needs and requirements. She set up a new phone call was with a product manager at the company. The phone call lasted around 30-45 minutes and he asked:
    -Give an example of something you were proud to work on/be a part of.
    -How did you find out about RedBeacon and why are you attracted to the company?
    -Other questions asking about PM experience and how I managed past work.

    After this, I was contacted by the recruiter again who said "the team and they felt confident in your ability to get things done and move a project forward, but at this time we are looking for a big idea person who has experience in creating solutions and bringing them to market." There was no mention of "big ideas" or emphasis on new solutions and how to launch them in either of my phone calls, so no surprise I wasn't considered for the position since I didn't emphasize that part of my experience.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Redbeacon in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied the job online. Later the associate recruiter contacted me to talk about my past experiences. The questions were not technical as it was just the initial screening. Everything seemed to be fine until I received an email stating that they are looking for a different skill set. Most probably my lack of knowledge in Objective-C caused this situation. Otherwise it was a pleasant conversation.
