    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at iPipeline.

    Interview Details

    What a joke. They paint a very rosy picture of the company, then they low-ball your offer. Only after you start working there do you realize what a show they put on to lure you in, and the show takes for-ev-er. Multiple rounds of interviews, dragging the process out, forcing you to choose between them and other opportunities. They don't care, and give no consideration to how long they take to make an offer.

Everyone that interviewed me made me feel comfortable. Overall, the work environment felt like a breath of fresh air.

    The interview process was thorough with a phone interview, behavioral test, technical test and business test. After completing those tests I was brought in for an in-person interview. I had to provide five references, two of which I directly reported to in the last five years. During the phone interview portion of the process I had one call with a HR representative and one with a Director. The in-person interview was with two BA's a Director and a VP.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at iPipeline in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Extremely fast but thorough. The steps included phone screens, knowledge verification and two in-person interviews. I got the impression that iPipeline wanted to ensure that the company and the candidate had the right chemistry to be successful.

    From the start the negotiations were open dialog with knowledge transfer. The Human Resources and Recruiter teams provided me with detailed information on the company's culture and a holistic view of its total compensation plan. Overall, it was an excellent experience with a high level of professionalism.

    R&D Summer Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Interview Details

    The HR manager reached out to me through an email and scheduled a day for a brief phone interview. The phone interview lasted roughly 30 minutes and at the end of it, she asked for available days to come in for an in person interview. Later, she noted that some candidates were eliminated after the phone interview so if she does not ask for an in person interview at the end of the phone call then there is a high chance they are not interested in you. The in person interview was very confusing. I had to wait half an hour before the actual interview began and while waiting, the HR manager was constantly talking to me. I believe this is part of the interview so try to be as talkative as you can with the HR manager. Afterwards, I was in a group interview where two individuals interviewed me and a second candidate. In a sense, they were pitting me against the opposing candidate. Their attention was largely directed towards me so I knew they were more interested in me.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you see yourself doing in the future and what qualities do you have that makes you better then the other candidates were questions that were unexpected. They were not difficult, but the majority of the time they were asking questions that mainly assesses your traits and these two questions were one of the few that assessed your skills. During the in person interview, it was incredibly laid back. The most unexpected question was how early they asked me for questions. Half of the interview was literally me asking them questions as oppose to them asking me questions. I get a feeling that they are using this to gauge how interested you are in their company so come prepared with a lot of deep questions.   Answer Question

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Exton, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Exton, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at iPipeline.

    Interview Details

    Multiple rounds of interviews, personality test, plus presentation to a group. Process was overly long and complicated, with details, timeline and earnings expectation kept hidden. Company plays its cards very close to the vest, likes to keep candidates at a disadvantage and makes low-ball offers.

    Interview Questions
    • Don't remember one question as particularly difficult or unexpected. The difficulty was really in the process and people involved. Seemed like too many people had input, the process was somewhat arbitrary and the timeline was uncertain. The required presentation has little to do with the actual job, and is apparently an incredibly inaccurate predictor of success.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Hard to negotiate with a company that drags the interview process out so long, demands proof of past salary and doesn't like to answer total comp questions during the process. The offer felt a little "bait and switch" and was more or less "take it or leave it".
