    Pros

    Simply Hired possesses some of the best, most talented individuals in the Bay Area. This is a place where you can not only collaborate with different departments with ease, but you will find yourself learning a lot about the different projects each team is working on through Company Updates and CEO-led meeting sessions. Not only is the team talented, you will be surprised by how kind these individuals are. For example, if someone hears that you have a long commute during a passing conversation in the hallway, they will ask you to carpool - even if it is miles and miles out of their way to pick you up. While the employees' kindness may not be the driving force behind your joining the company, it is certainly one thing that you will notice the moment you come in to interview.

    The Executive staff is similarly approachable and each possess a wealth of information and are willing to share their insights and knowledge if you just stop by or send a note.

    Fun perks one can find at Simply Hired includes hack days, monthly happy hours, daily catered lunches & a fully-stocked kitchen for snackers - like me.

    Cons

    Communication seems to be a theme in past posts, but Simply Hired has really stepped up efforts on company-wide communication over the last few months.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Simply Hired in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first received a call from the HR associate, who went over my profile, salary expectations, possible date of joining etc. I was told I will next receive a call from the VP of Marketing. I instead received a call from another recruiter who helps screen for these roles, as opposed to the SVP. My hiring process ended there, thankfully.

    Interview Questions
    • My resume states that I have over 5 years of experience at a certain company in a certain role. The 2nd interviewer wanted to know extremely basic details, for example, tell me how you add a set of keywords to an account, which is not a test of skill. The questions were too generic, for example, how would you optimize an account. I think there was no interview prep from the interviewers stand point. I can safely say this because I was a former interviewer myself and interviewed individuals for the same role. Ideally, present the candidate with an example, "lets say I am company X and my product is Y, XYZ is the website's URL. Can you take a look at this and let me know what your keyword list would look like." I would have liked to be quizzed on account-level strategy as opposed to general questions on how to generate a keyword list, etc.   Answer Question
