I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week – interviewed at Car Toys (Seattle, WA).
Initial contact was via phone and email. The admin was very polite and organized. She gave me the location, dress code, and the names of the people that I would be interviewing with.
First interview was with the COO - interesting person, a bit full of herself and I listened more than I talked. She is new with the company and undergoing a huge effort to upgrade some major systems. We talked for an hour. Interviewed with a Director for the next hour - he was great; seemed like he would be a good peer.
I walked away from the interview knowing that I could fit into the company, but not sure that they knew exactly what they were interviewing for. Although the interviews went well, I was missing experience with a key piece of software that the COO was adamant about having - I do not feel that that was a huge challenge. The COO did not come with deep IT background, that was a showstopper for me.
Needless to say, we did not proceed after that.
- I can't say any of the questions were unexpected or difficult. Standard "why are you looking to leave your current position", "what are your strengths and weaknesses", etc. Answer Question
