    Front End Developer Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at kCura.

    Interview Details

    6 hour pointless interview, a massive waste of time. Creepy cult like expressions on monitors. Felt like I was in "They Live" the overall feeling was that they weren't really interested in gaining a resource for there company but rather they want you to be very impressed with them. Their work is lackluster. They become very defensive when you mention GlassDoor.

    Technical Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at kCura in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interesting looking job. Minimalist approach as regards the courtesies. I expected big-city brusqueness, and little or no effort to put me at ease, based on other reviews I'd read. I'm OK with that.

    Behavioral interviewing is supposed to help you tell a relevant story. It came across as nearly bullying: obvious impatience, multiple interruptions, and a direct personal remark that I ignored. It's not clear whether the interviewer didn't like my answers, or was testing to see if I could handle rude behavior. It accurately forecast the experience of the second interview.

    Interview Questions
    • "Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with other stakeholders." is how I remember it. I had my interview stories prepped and ready.   View Answer
    • The follow-up questions to Question #1 had a pattern that suggested there was a specific problem or dynamic that the interviewer was trying to get an answer to--almost like what was wanted was a consultation, not my experience. The stories matched the question, but there was an intent that they didn't match, and I couldn't get a read on what it was.   Answer Question
    • My question to interviewer: "How will you know things are going as you hope?" I intended to elicit a couple of performance objectives to see if I could meet expectations.   View Answer

    Technical Support Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at kCura in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    An HR rep reached out to me via email, and we arranged a phone interview. Shortly afterwards, we arranged an on-site interview, which was long and extremely redundant but informative. Same HR rep promised to follow up within the next few days but she never did. I emailed her asking for the status of my application, and her response was very delayed. Eventually, she told me the position went to another person. It doesn't bother me as much that they selected another individual but the HR's rep untimeliness and inexistent sense of urgency bothers me. Not only is standard follow up a common courtesy but the HR rep proved she is anything but resourceful.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at kCura in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews and one face-to-face interview. The face-to-face was 4 hours long with 9 different people. I was a bit unimpressed with the caliber of people I met during my face-to-face interview. Many of them were dressed inappropriately (disheveled, looked like they just rolled out of bed, etc.). The management representatives I met with were quite arrogant, which is the feel I got for the culture of this entire company. One manager specifically was completely un-engaged and made it clear they were not interested in being present in the interview. When I got the note from HR letting me know I had not been chosen, they were reluctant to provide me critical feedback regarding why I was passed up for the position. After that final 4 hour time investment on my side, I would have hoped for more professional and thorough follow up.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked essentially the same questions repeatedly, there was nothing creative or unexpected. They asked 4 to 5 follow up questions for every answer I gave which was a bit challenging.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I applied on the website, I was emailed three weeks later and had a phone interview scheduled for that same week. The next week they wanted to interview me and two days after the interview I called and offered the job. They gave me exactly what I wanted for salary and the following monday was the first day of work.

    Applications Specialist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at kCura in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was mostly one-on-one or one-on-two with other employees in the Client Services department. There were questions about my previous work experience, but since I was fresh out of college, they mostly revolved around my critical thinking skills and ability to provide great customer service. This interview was over three years ago, so the format has changed considerably.

    Interview Questions
    • One interviewer focused a lot on how my education had little to do with the career I was trying to go into. It was nerve-wracking, but absolutely a good route to take in order to find out if I was actually serious in this job being long-term.   View Answer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at kCura.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter called me and was all about his purpose,the call seemed so unprofessional! Simply asking What he wanted to know and once he knew - he might as well hanged up. I hope he was just having a bad day or something,one of the worse experiences ever.

    Unstructured interviews where junior people performed the interviews reading questions from a piece of paper. The mentality of those that performed the interview were zealots of the company, which did not align with my professional and personal demeanor
