    Client Services Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Switchfly in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone screening with the HR director, then had a phone interview with one of the hiring managers, and the director of the department. Everything was via phone.

    The phone screening with HR director was very informative and professional one. He was very engaging and open for any questions. After the phone screening, he hooked me up with one of the hiring managers. The interview with the hiring manager was also as expected and good one. She wanted for me to talk to her manager (director of the division) before she invites me to the face-to-face interview.

    The director called on time as he promised. He asked me to describe about the job and I explained to him what I learned from the initial phone screening and the phone interview with the hiring manager. He told me he was totally against what I said. He was looking for the person who can "code" which was not mentioned in the job description nor by HR & the hiring manager. I was shocked to hear what he said, but he was certain that the Client Services Manager must read, write, and understand the code and he didn't like my background which was more focused on the customer relation.

    At the end of the interview, I withdrew the application. The HR Manager's input was "I wasn't technical enough", but it should have addressed in earlier stage.

    Technical Client Services Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Switchfly in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and soon got scheduled with a phone screen with the Director of HR. That led to a more technical phone call with the hiring manager. A few days later, they invited me over for an on-site interview, with include a 15-45 min 1:1 chat with a team member, the hiring manager, an SAM, VP of Sales, and the Director of HR. The on-site was long, but very informative. Everyone I've met was very nice and patient to answer my questions.

    Their company has an interesting process - that everyone who have met the candidates would sit down together and discuss about their impressions of the candidates and to pick the one as a group. It definitely seems like they are very careful and serious about hiring for the company.

    A few days later, they told me that they had decided to go with another candidate with more experiences. And the Director of HR was super helpful to provide feedback on my performance.

    But the only confusing part of this was that, only about 2 or 3 weeks after receiving a No from them, I saw that they have posted the same job opening again online. So it's very hard to tell whether they did hire the person or not.

    I applied online – interviewed at Switchfly.

    Interview Details

    The interview is conducted by some other company than Switchfly. Too many questions asked during the phone interview. Feel rushed to answer.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Switchfly in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter contacted me about the position. Their interview process consisted initial phone screen with recruiter; behavior phone interview with hiring manager; technique interview with technical lead; take home assignment / test; on-site interview; pair exercise.

    For the phone interview, when you do get connected with someone, they sound friendly and professional. However, they seems never able to get their act together. Either scheduled phone interview never happens (twice with two different persons). Or they will call at least 10 -15 minutes later then scheduled.
