    Pros

    Thank goodness the people who wrote the negative reviews are gone, because they were apparently keeping us stuck. Much progress has been made in the past three months. Any company must make tough decisions to find the best way forward in a competitive marketplace. Business decisions aren't personal, and though it can be painful, how people choose to respond to change is up to them.

    Nothing about this company's recent challenges and developments is particularly surprising if you think about the tremendously ambitious changes being undertaken here. This is a cutting-edge company with an honorable mission that runs like a start-up, only with the infrastructure of a more mature company. This grown-up-start-up dynamic could tend to make people who prefer early-stage start-ups feel suffocated, or make people who need the established processes and political structure of a mature company feel overwhelmed and poorly-directed.

    People who work here can gain contribute to something great for job-seekers, plus gain experience in three hugely important areas for future employment: Recruiting/Human Capital, Internet Advertising/PPC Marketplace, and Search Engine technology.

    Cons

    Because there were so many changes during the past year, internal communication suffered quite a bit, resulting in frustration across teams and misalignment of goals. This is normal and great progress is being made. Loss of team members makes people gun-shy that they are next on the chopping block.

    My advice is to make sure that you're adding value to the company AND yourself by working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to solicit and be open to acting on the input of the entire team. Continue communicating frequently and repeating a consistent message. Empower your A-players and support them. Continue putting the interests and experience of job-seekers first.

    Disclaimer for the conspiracy theorists: I am not a senior leader, but I like to think that I could be someday. The ability to think objectively about business decisions, even when they may be painful to me personally, is step one on that path.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Simply Hired.

    Interview Details

    My interview took place in September 2014. The HR associate was extremely nice, but she was not prepared at all for this interview. During the first five minutes of the interview the HR associate read my resume as though she had never seen it before. Then proceeded to talk about the sales team for the rest of the interview and only asked me a few very basic questions. There was no interest in examples of any accomplishments from my previous work history.

    Interview Questions
    • I then met with another manager that I would be working with directly and he did seem prepared. At the end of the second interview, I was told to wait to see if anyone else could meet with me on the team. No one was able to jump on the interview so the HR associate informed me that I would receive an email to move to the second round of interviewing in the next few days. I emailed an inquiry regarding the status a few days later and was sent an email informing me that they were still working on getting everything scheduled. If your company is no longer interested in a candidate simply inform them by email, it’s not that hard and a bit unprofessional in my opinion to be so unresponsive. During this time I interviewed with another company and had over three rounds of interviews. I was offered a job within two weeks. The other companies HR staff was very responsive and made sure I knew that I was a valued candidate and also where I was in the hiring process. My suggestion to the Simply Hired HR staff is to make sure you follow up with candidates regarding the interviewing process. Otherwise you will end up losing qualified candidates that would probably be a great fit for the company. The overall interviewing process was good prior to coming in for the interview but extremely poor without any follow up with me as a candidate during the hiring process.   Answer Question
