    Marketing Event Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Thycotic.

    Interview Details

    They literally slammed at least 30 questions at me in the span of 45 minutes. It was non-stop. They didn't even offer feedback to my responses, it was just question after question after question. Very young and inexperienced people conducting the interview. More of a popularity contest than whether or not you actually qualified for the position. They didn't even follow up after when they said they would.

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Thycotic.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position, was contacted for an initial phone screen then had a second interview where I had to describe my technical background. After that, I was invited in for a 3rd interview where I met with a panel of awesome folks and then a technical abilities test and met the rest of the team on the floor. It was a very thorough process and an excellent learning experience.

    Billing & Client Relations Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Thycotic in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via email by a Thycotic team member after submitting my application and answers some situational questions. We set-up an initial phone call to gauge my experience and interest for the company. She gave me a run down of the interview process (Initial call, 2nd Interview with owner, 3rd in-person "panel" interview). The initial interview went well. I was asked a lot of unique interview questions and given the opportunity to ask many questions as well.

    I made it to the 2nd Interview! This time I was speaking with the owner and potential department manager. This interview was similar to the initial call. The difference was that the owner asked me more detailed questions around what my career plans. He also explained to me their company needs and difficulties. I was able to get a much better idea of what to expect in the position. This conversation went well too. The owner is a very down-to-earth guy that genuinely wanted to get to know exactly what my future goals were.

    I was asked to come in for a in-person interview. Upon arrival, I was greeted and got a tour of the office. I was pleasantly surprised with the work environment! It was open, engaging and clearly fully of productive energy! The interview was what I would consider a panel interview. I met with the people who interviewed me first. Then, met with the people in the department I would be working with. They got an opportunity to ask me questions. The interview ended with me completing a pre-employment exam.

    This was by far the most extensive interview process I have ever had. But! It was a pleasant one!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Thycotic in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    First you email in your resume, cover letter, and a code sample found on the company website. Later, a 'Personal Life/Office Culture' phone interview, which is all of the non-technical stuff you would expect in a phone interview. Then a Technical phone interview, asking about code, code experience, accomplishments. If you pass those hurdles, you will be invited to an on-site interview where you will work with our fantastic developers and see if you really sync with the team. After that, an offer will be considered.

    Had an initial phone interview, then an in-person pair-programming session.

    Interview Questions
    • For me, the most difficult "question" was performing during the in-person programming session. I was inexperienced with the technology, and it is a credit to them that they could see some potential and hire me regardless.   Answer Question
