    Pros

    I am very happy with the company, the people that work here, and with the products we make. Within a month of starting this internship (my second with Talking Rain), I had given a presentation to our general counsel, taken executives from other companies out to lunch, and was running a dozen different tests. The job doesn't feel hourly even though it is. My boss is the reason that my internship has been so successful. The leadership, directors and supervisors, is why I would recommend doing an internship at Talking Rain to others.

    Cons

    Preston Washington is a horrible commute from Seattle, WA, but if you already live on the Eastside, it is great to be able to drive reverse commute and avoid I-5 and 405.

    Advice to Management

    Consider closing the office at 4 so the employees that have to battle rush hour into Seattle get a head start.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at TalkingRain Beverage in September 2014.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional process. I was initially contacted via phone and asked to come in for a first round interview. I met with the HR manager who knew absolutely nothing about IT nor was properly suited to conduct an interview of a Sr. level manager. The interview was horrible. The questions were very pedestrian and were not relevant at all. I was told that there were a couple of other candidates that were scheduled to be screened and that I would be contacted at some within a week for a decision on next steps. THat was 5 weeks ago! I have sent an email and still no response. Very unprofessional and very telling of what would be in store working for that company. If for some reason this HR manager thinks that my 15 years of experience managing and leading IT organizations isn't worthy of a second round of interviews than the least she could do is send me an email thanking me for the time I spent interviewing with them.
