    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at mindSHIFT in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Two phone screenings, followed by in person meeting 5 important people of team and hiring manager. All interviewers treated me with respect and seems to have nice team spirit. Hiring manager made an offer by email. After a day HR called without notice and picked up while driving thinking it is light weight welcome call. He started inquiring about family obligations indirectly and it was quite irritating. Next day, there was one liner email from HR that they pulled the offer as they found someone better!

    Customer Care Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA
    Application Details

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at mindSHIFT in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume and quickly heard back that they were interested in me for the position yet never really followed through with bringing me in for an interview. It literally took four weeks to nail down an interview time and date the worked. Once in for the interview for a technical role I was never not once asked anything about my technical experience or even technical questions, the interviewer did not even seem the slightest concerned about my IT know how or even if I knew how to power a computer on (honestly I do not think that she was technical at all).

    The interviewer seemed a bit grouchy and almost as if i was disrupting her by coming in for this interview, even though they asked me to come in. I did end up hearing that they were not interesting in bringing me on board but likely would have turned down any offer after having the worst interviewer that i have ever dealt with.

    Help Desk Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at mindSHIFT in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Got a response to my resume. Came in for an interview with the hiring manager. After that I came back and interviewed with another manager and VP. The two interviews were on different days.

    Seems like the hiring manager and the other manager + VP never spoke. They asked me completely different questions. The questions in the first interview seemed to be related to the job, the second were a bunch of printer questions. If they were trying to gauge my knowledge and troubleshooting they should have prepared the questions. Seemed like the guy was pulling them out of no where and didn't even know how to troubleshoot.

    Interview Questions
    • Customer calls and says they have a printer that wont turn on.   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    The second interview completely turned me off from the company. It was unprofessional and not in a relaxed way. Seems like they were just winging it and had no real process. They also became defensive when asked questions about growth opportunities and training.
