    Product Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ShoreTel in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process went well. I applied online and received an e-mail for a phone screening. After the phone screening, I had an interview with the hiring manager. When I was asked to come in for an on-site interview, I interviewed with 4 different people. It was great because no only did they ask about my skills and abilities, but also interpersonal questions. The whole process took about a month and was painless.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ShoreTel.

    Interview Details

    The process was quick and efficient. I felt that they communicated expectations and what was needed before the interviews and the next steps that would be taken. There were multiple interviews, but felt that it was very wise to have some of the team interview the candidate to evaluate if they would be a good fit overall for the job and the team.

    Tech Specialist Interview

    Interview Details

    The recruiter was efficient and friendly, and the whole process was done within 3-4 days. I didn't like having to negotiate an hourly vs. salary/bonus pay rate. I didn't like the process section where I had to read through a lot of policies before my first day. It took much longer than expected, and was very tedious.

    Software Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Fairly non-technical phone interview focused on my resume. Within a few days had an onsite interview with a few interviews with members of the team I would be working with, where they asked some fairly easy technical questions. This was followed by a sort of "cool-down" chat with the recruiter to relax and talk about how things went. Received an offer a few days later by phone.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at ShoreTel in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of 4 rounds. The first interview was the hardest and included a tough technical question. The rest of the rounds were not as difficult and consisted mostly of background checks on my resume and courses learned in school, simple programming questions, and thinking questions. The hiring manager did mention at the end of the interview that they would contact me within a week to report their final decision, and the travel coordinator mentioned during the phone call that I would be reimbursed for paying for my flight to their company. Since the interview, I have not received an e-mail from the company about their final decision and plan for reimbursement, and I have been contacting them every single week. If you plan to fly over to this company for an interview, MAKE SURE that they set up your flight itinerary instead of booking your own ticket.

    Senior .NET Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ShoreTel in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    After a phone screening I was asked to come in for a 1.5 hour technical interview.

    First Round:
    The process took place in a conference room with a panel of two. It's bad enough being interviewed by a panel instead of one-on-one, but this couple really made sure I was uncomfortable throughout the whole process. The more senior person was very full of himself and loved to hear himself lecture on how he still remembers what a linked list is, and the other guy (who never smiled a day in his life) made it very clear he just did not like me. The questions themselves were about Fibonacci, trees, database design.

    They made me feel so bad, that for the first time in my life I actually wanted to up and leave right there and there. But somehow I did get a call back.

    Second Round
    It was more of the same. At the end met senior for soft ball questions.

    To complicate the bad experience the recruiter was terrible and very unresponsive. After leading me to believe that I was going to get an offer she went MIA for days and when she finally got back to me she sent me a cryptic email about "organizational changes" and that's the last I heard from her/them.

    Very unprofessional throughout the whole process.

    At the time I was upset, but a few months after I found a MUCH better job. I'm thrilled I didn't get stuck in such a hostile environment.
