    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Taleo in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I did a phone interview with the hiring manager (he missed our 1st phone interview though), sent him samples of my work, he then wanted me to fly in to interview with him and his other team members. On site, everybody was professional and nice ironically except for the hiring manager I had already spoken to who ate his lunch during hs time with me, was the only one who had to ask me for my resume and decided he didn't like my writitng samples after all, which should've saved me from wasting my time out there. The cherry on top was I had to badger HR to get my expenses paid as he conveniently had forgotten to process it. Seemed like a good team of people but with an aloof silver spoon at the top.

    Sales & Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Taleo in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Have interviewed a number of times with Taleo for positions they say they have an immediate need to fill. Have done the interviews with Human Resource and have spoken to numerous hiring managers which all have provided excellent feedback and indicated I am right for the position. After that they go silent and don't return calls or emails. In one instance was told they went with another candidate but with each positions I've applied for, I've discovered they have never filled the opening. I'm not sure if it is an issue with budget or internal politics but each experiences has been an let down after receiving such positive responses from those who have interviewed me.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Taleo in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Process started with phone screens with hiring managers. Moved past that stage to phone interviews with peers. Then invited onsite for full day of interviewing across multiple departments. Questions asked during the interview were expected, no surprises. Interviewing with this company is also about personality fit with existing team. Use the opportunity to interview Taleo as well.
