I applied online – interviewed at Vendavo.Interview Details
I applied on an indeed posting. First set up a initial phone screen with corporate recruiter. Pretty basic phone screen lasted about a half hour wanting to go over my background and the details of the position applied for. The first round was a success and she wanted me to set up a call with the director who would be working with the candidate who ends up doing the position. There was obviously communication between the recruiter and director going into my second phone screen. This was a confirmation of what we had known and then some clarification that the position wasn't a typical sales position and more of a researching prospects in the pre-sales process to get them on-board to talk to an account executive. There were some recommendations to do some further research on some financial statement knowledge before taking it to a in person interview. I had done lots of research on the company as well as brushing up on some finance terms that I have not used extensively in previous role. Went in for a in person interview where they wanted me to meet with the director and two vice presidents. Went in for the in person interview and things seemed to have went pretty well. I had done my homework which seemed to impress both of them. One vice president was not able to be at the meeting. It closed with the next steps being to talk to two additional vice presidents the next day. I agreed to one the following morning and one the next day at 1:00. I tried resisting the 1:00 interview as I had another interview that I wanted to focus on with another company shortly after.The recruiter I had first spoke with had added me on linkedIn right after the interview. Things seemed to have been going pretty well at this point.
The next morning, I wake up and prepare for the first phone interview.... Nothing. 5 minutes goes by. I email the director as I was suppose to receive the call but just wanted to confirm I wasn't suppose to call in. A few hours later she responds that she could not get confirmation from him but the 1:00 interview was still on. Very unprofessional as I had done lots to prepare for this and could have been utilizing my day preparing for other companies I had been interviewing with. The 1:00 interview didn't call in until about 20 minutes later. I was apprehensive to accept this call to begin with as I warned her this was running very close to another interview I had. The other VP calls 20 minutes late, no apoligies for that. Fine, I can deal with that, let's get on to the interview. Apparently he was just reading my resume for the very first time and there was no internal communication on the progress of the interview so far. Asking very basic questions that should have been understood by now - like why I am not with the last company etc. Very frustrated to start from scratch as I had been about 5 hours deep into talking with this company. After about 10 minutes he cut me off and said he had to take this call.
I was suppose to take an assessment that day. Followed up with both the recruiter and the director who would be the position's direct superior several times. NO RESPONSE. A rejection would have been more acceptable than that. Sent them linkedIn message... Nothing! VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. I would not suggest bothering with this company.
They have a very interesting product and have recently been bought out buy a hedge fund. That hedge fund had brought a lot of these individuals in to turn it around. They should probably gut the rest of the staff and sell the product to an established company who can distribute this product. HR was ver "Bi-Polar" with Vendavo.Interview Questions
