    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Silverchair.

    Interview Details

    Had 2 interviews at possibly the coolest building in downtown Charlottesville. On the first interview I met with the hiring manager and the UX Director. The second interview was with the project manager of the client account I would be placed on. Both interviews lasted about an hour, everyone friendly and a very relaxed atmosphere.

    Interview Questions
    • Perhaps the most difficult question was the typical "What/when was your hardest challenge and how did you overcome it.." type of question.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    It was a difficult decision...but ultimately it came down to choosing a company that offered me rock solid stability. You'll notice some unfavorable reviews here in glassdoor. I presented Silverchair with my concerns after reading these negative reviews and they really went out of their way to address ALL of my questions in detail. Bottom line though whilst I feel the company certainly does has the talent to succeed and WILL turn the corner, my analysis was the company is still in the "turning" phase and hasn't arrived yet to where it wants to be. So this was a great company, great opportunity but just not the right time now situation.

    Product Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Silverchair in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    2 rounds - met with probably a dozen people in all. They seemed very intent on determining the quality of my work and the depth of my skills. These folks are only after the best, and I found this to be a challenging, but fun, set of interviews. You're not likely to sneak by with a hollow resume.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked very technical questions (IP Addressing, DNS rules), which many folks in my role probably would not have been able to answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was coming from a larger more mature company and was able to negotiate the non-salary components of compensation to achieve near parity. You gotta ask...
