    Development Facilitator (Scrum Master) Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at cPanel.

    Interview Details

    I Found this position posted on LinkedIn (was already 22 days old) and checked th company website to see if it was available since it was almost a month old. The position was still available so I applied and within an hour I was being told management was considering my resume. An hour later I got an email saying they wanted to set up a phone interview and with whom. By this time it was about 10:30pm or a little later so I decided to wait until the morning to send my email.

    The next day I had a busy morning and by 9:30 I already had an email and a missed call from them saying they wanted to schedule a phone interview with me. I was excited because they seemed so anxious to interview me and I really wanted to work for this company. They gave me a date for when the interviewers would be available and I accepted the date and time for my interview.

    "Deep technical knowledge of our products and software development is not required. In the agile development community, this job is called the Scrum Master. We are willing to train the right candidates to be effective Scrum Masters" This is what the post said. I have held this position before for a few months and already knew a good deal of it but not enough to be considered a professional or an expert. I was still new to it. I was excited because I wanted more training and wanted to gain my certification as a certified Scrum Master. I studied and brushed up on the position and just knew I was ready. All they required was a high school diploma or equivalent. They didn't even say a bachelors degree was preferred. I thought this would be my next position and that I had it in the bag.

    Time for the interview came around... They had me on speaker mode and I could barely hear what they were saying to me. They asked me two questions about myself but nothing about my job history, or any of my previous experience. They asked me complex questions that were strictly related to the position that someone who had been in the position for a while who had had proper training would know. It seemed that what they were asking for in the job description was not at all on par with what they were looking for. Needless to say during the interview I got nervous and disheartened. Shortly after the interview was done I got the rejection email. I feel like the interview was not thorough and didn't ask the right questions.

    Marketing and Event Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at cPanel in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was notified that I was selected to interview for the position. Had a panel interview with 2 team members and the Chief Business Officer. I was told over 216 people had applied for this position. I felt I defiantly was qualified for the position but felt I was perhaps a little too corporate for the team so I was completely shocked when I received a notification that I had made it to the next step in the interviewing process.

    Interview Questions
    • The second interview was a test: I was given a budget of $1,000 and 7 business days to create an event for the team of 10. Entertain them for three hours at an off-site location. This was to show my creativity and how well I worked under pressure.   View Answer

    *NIX Technical Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at cPanel in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through cPanel's website. They are very good about communicating with you via email and I scheduled a phone interview that consisted of an HR person and the hiring manager. They asked some questions about various technologies and whether or not I was familiar with them. They indicated they wanted to set up an in person interview at their office. I scheduled the interview for a few days later. I arrived at the office and was greeted by the same HR person I spoke with on the phone and was taken to a conference room at their office. The hiring manager came into the room and I was asked to solve some problems on an example/test server using the command line and whatever Internet resources (Read: Google) I wanted. There were 3 different scenarios I had to resolve, of which I only answered one correctly. That was the entirety of the interview. In fact, I wouldn't really call it an interview, but more of a strict skills test. They simply want to know if you have the skills necessary to do the job, which I completely understand, but it obviously doesn't allow the interviewee to highlight their background and skills. I was told I would find out about the job a week later, but was never contacted.

    UI Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at cPanel in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    After sending in a resume I was contacted by a recruiter and she gave me a design assignment. After completed the design in 1 day I went through to the next step.

    They invited me to Houston. I was told that I will be interviewed by the manager, but they decided to do lunch interview. Interview felt rushed. I don't even get a chance to present my portfolio. Somehow I feel they are very disorganized and not prepared. One of the interviewer was wearing short. I understand that some employer have casual dress code, but interviewing a candidate wearing a short is unacceptable.
