Very Easy Interview

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Santa Monica, CA

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at eHarmony.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview was very detailed and helpful. Next was an in-house interview with my prospective supervisor and with a member of the Human Resources department. The interview question were pretty basic, mostly having to do with past work experience and skill level. I think they could have shared more about the company culture and would push them for that if interviewing again.

Interview Question – There really weren't any. All of the questions related directly to my skill level. I didn't think the questions were all that interesting either.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiated salary up by $5,000. Not much room for any other negotiations. I would recommend that if you want to negotiate then this probably isn't the right fit for you.

Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Santa Monica, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at eHarmony in September 2010.

Interview Details – Started with a phone interview with HR. Went into the office one time and was interviewed by 7 people, including supervisors, managers, director and VP. Everyone was nice and the conversation had a positive flow. There were no tricky questions, they just wanted to know you better.

Interview Question – All questions were straight forward. They asked for a difficult customer interaction situation.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. They were not flexible with wage or start date.

Senior Project Manager Interview

Senior Project Manager
Santa Monica, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at eHarmony in June 2008.

Interview Details – When I originally started at eHarmony - the interview process included meeting the owner of the company. With the recent departure of the founders, I believe the interview process is now more meeting with HR, and in product - the Director, the other Senior Product Managers and IT staff to ensure culture fit.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here?   Answer Question

Data Analyst Interview

Data Analyst
Santa Monica, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at eHarmony in September 2011.

Interview Details – Very unprofessional.

I was scheduled to meet with 5 or 6 different individuals. 3 of them would not meet with me because they were "too busy." Instead, they sent in a few surrogates that did not understand the position that I had applied for.

Every interview was all over the place. eHarmony clearly had no clue what they were looking for in a Data Analyst. The actual hiring manager asked several questions about machine learning, which I was expecting. But all of the other interviews involved dashboard creation. I do not know one Data Analyst that also does dashboard design as that is clearly a frontend user interface engineering position. They asked me if I had experience with practically every single machine learning, statistics and visualization package known to man. It was clear that they were just going down a checklist of the latest buzzwords.

Recruiter said "I will have an answer to you tomorrow." Three days passed and I emailed the recruiter. His response was "the hiring manager was in a car accident. I will have an answer in a few days." I never heard back. Very unprofessional to not even have the cojones to deliver bad news.

I am glad that I did not get the position though. This is a typical corporate dot com company with a typical 9-5 boring culture. I was not into the whole touchy-feely notion that they are helping people "find love." Gag me.

The person that they did end up hiring is just a basic data analyst with no machine learning or visualization experience according to LinkedIn. So what the heck were they hiring for? I guess when they found out they couldn't find an expert in "everything" they changed their tactics. The position was open for at least 9 months.

The whole process was pitiful, and makes eHarmony and the recruiter look pathetic.

eHarmony is located in the same building as Yahoo. Cool work place. Lots of pictures of matched couples on the wall. Relax and casual environment. Typical dot-com company.

PR Manager Interview

PR Manager
London, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at eHarmony in March 2014.

Interview Details – A 4 step interview process - very thorough. Was good to meet the team, and also be interviewed and meet with the PR agency prior to joining as this helped me hit the ground running on arrival. Presentation was included in the 2nd stage.

Interview Question – I'd prepped well for questions - but one of the team did ask me to recall how I responded to a negative media situation. Not something you always get asked (normally just talking about learnings, and positive pointers) so it caught me off guard.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – It was good - and fair.
