    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at SilkRoad Technology in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I've had a few jobs over the years and the application/interview/hiring process with Silkroad was by far the smoothest and most organized I've ever experienced. The online application software was easy to use and there was excellent follow-up from the HR representative.

    Applying online was simple and easy. HR was very quick to follow up at every turn and made it clear that if I had questions, I could call at any time. I had 4 interviews, one with the Manager of the position, the Director, someone who was currently in the position, and one with the HR representative. This gave me a very clear understanding of what the job entailed and it helped both parties determine if this was the right fit. I really appreciated that. Once the offer was made and I accepted, I went through the onboarding process. This process has always been a pain in the past with other companies, but Silkroad has excellent and clear documentation, so this made the process of choosing benefits, completing W-4, I-9, and other required forms incredibly simple and hassle free. I also have to mention again that the follow-up from the HR Representative was phenomenal.

    The office atmosphere is very relaxed but there is still an emphasis on productivity and a work/life balance. I feel that the company cares about me as a whole and I am not just a number. I was given a detailed agenda for my first 3 weeks at the company. The first two weeks, I was first required to do training on my own with their online training products and take an exam to obtain a certification. The training consisted of general courseware (administrative, company culture, etc.) as well as product training. I was incredibly impressed with the product user guides, online training courses, as well as the communal (live webinar) training. With the training, I was able to obtain my certifications in two weeks for two of the products that I will be working with.

    My third week, I was able to meet with my teammates, who provided me with more in-depth, job-specific training. It was encouraging to me that my teammates seemed happy and fulfilled with the company. They were welcoming and willing to share their knowledge. They also made it clear that I could reach out to them at any time with questions. I am really looking forward to my career at Silkroad.

    Enterprise Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at SilkRoad Technology in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty straight forward. I applied online after I was referred, so I could be in there database. I first spoke with the Recruiter, then had a phone interview with the hiring manager. At the time the position I wanted was on hold and would be for about 3-4 months. Two weeks later I got a call that a position had come open and I was made an offer. They sent me offer letter and the OnBoarding process was primarily online as well.

    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at SilkRoad Technology in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Perhaps because I was referred by a friend who is an employee or because my resume showed that I clearly had the desired experience, no telephone interview was required. Over the course of 2.5 hours, I interviewed with 5 employees, including the hiring manager, the head of development, the lead engineer, and two potential team mates. The lead engineer did ask a question that exposed the biggest weakness in my experience, but he seemed satisfied with my response that I had worked in similar areas and that technical writing is, by definition, about learning new software.

    Negotiation Details
    Immediately after the interview, the hiring manager offered me the job. The salary was competitive, even perhaps on the high side to make up for slightly sub-par benefits. There was really nothing to negotiate except the start date and my need for a bit of time off within the first couple of months. The company has a very flexible PTO policy, and I'm confident that my manager and I will handle my need to be out of town when the time comes.
