    Social Media Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at OpenDNS.

    Interview Details

    1. I did a phone interview with the recruiter and they were awesome! The recruiter was nice, on top of things, asked good questions, and made the overall initial interview pleasant.

    2. Next I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. The hiring manager was absolutely HORRIBLE! The hiring manager was impatient, quick to dismiss, and belittling. They told me that they were looking for a more seasoned candidate and then asked the question why OpenDNS should consider me.

    Are you kidding? If you already have a more seasoned candidate who's further along the interview process lifecycle, then why are you wasting MY time, YOUR time, and the COMPANY'S time?!

    Furthermore, all of the suggestions for new social programs and process that I suggested were so forward thinking that the manager asked me to email them the ideas. This goes to show that my skills/expertise were sought after, and I would have made the manager look like an inexperienced dud.

    Overall, the recruiter was awesome and the hiring manager was a nightmare. I'm glad the hiring manager revealed their true colors. Just like they are interviewing me, I'm interviewing them as a potential employer. Who would want to have a manager who's impatient and belittling? It goes to show you that just like big corporations, this "start-up" is more worried about looking good instead of being disruptive and innovative.
