    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Act-On Software.

    Interview

    The interview process was well organized. I met with a number of individuals on the team who were all quite professional. I felt like the team really wanted to get to know me and spend the time to share information on their role and the organization.

    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Act-On Software in March 2016.

    Interview

    Online application and got a call 45 days later for phone interview. While during phone interview the HR associate was stumbling and said "I actually don't know details for this position so you're going to have to ask during the next interview." Instead of asking the questions on the position, I pivoted to finding out more about the company culture. My interviewer only said that "everyone is really nice and its a fun place to work."

    The representative was unprofessional and seemed thrown off my the simplest questions. If you cannot speak about the position you are interviewing or your company mission/culture it reflects poorly to potential candidates.

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Act-On Software (Beaverton, OR).

    Interview

    Approximately 2 months after I submitted an online application, I was contacted for a phone screen. After a very basic phone screen, with HR, I had a phone screen with the hiring manager from San Francisco. This was a 1 hour call and rather in depth. Following the call, I went to the office for an in-person interview. I was not given any information about who I would be meeting or their roles. I met 4 people individually for 1/2 hour each. Only 1 of the 4 brought anything to write with. 1 of the 4 was distracted and busy on his phone the entire time. After this, I had mixed feelings.

    I was then contacted in the morning and asked to come by the office in the afternoon of the same day to chat with the CTO. We spoke for an hour, again no notes were taken and frequent phone interruptions occurred. I received immediate feedback that the interviews had gone well and they would be in touch shortly.

    3 weeks passed and I received a form letter stating: "Unfortunately we do not have an appropriate position for you at this time." I was warned about this process from others who had the exact same experience. I recommend you not wasted your time.

    Director of Sales Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Act-On Software (San Mateo, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Context: 4 months on and still not an answer..
    This is the definition of potentially the worst interviewing experience I've ever had in my career. i don't think i've ever felt more disrespected and treated with the outmost unprofessionalism!

    I had seen the same comments actually from a previous recent candidate but I chose to ignore them and thought that maybe it was an one-off bad experience. Well, long behold...
    I applied online 4 months ago for a Senior leadership role and their senior recruiter called me for the usual screening. At the end of it, he scheduled another phone interview with the hiring manager. After I was getting all raving reviews, he decided he wanted to meet me in person. In the meantime he schedules me for a phone interview with the VP of Sales plus the new CFO. After all these interviews they decide they really like me and they invite me to the office where I'm interviewing once again with the hiring manager plus the VP of People. After done with all that, their recruiter calls me to give me very positive feedback and to tell me that now they are thinking of a new role for me and that they want me to interview AGAIN with the CFO. At this stage I have already done 6 INTERVIEWS but still since I was interested in the position, I kept being patient and positive. I went for the 2nd time onsite and interviewed again with the CFO. All good! After this, their recruiter contacts me again to schedule now a THIRD onsite and 8th INTERVIEW with the new CEO. I went over again, had a really great chat with the CEO and we seemed to have the common understanding that it's a matter of getting right the job specification and he asked me to wait for 3 days (Monday before Thanksgiving) to speak to the CFO and make a final decision.

    From then till Xmas eve, everyone was ignoring my emails for an update! And not only that, but the worse thing is that i have emailed every single one of them (Senior leadership team and recruiter) to see if I can get an update and every single one of them has ignored all emails. I finally got them to call me back the day before xmas eve where they informed me that they are still sorting out their HC and what positions they need to fill first and to wait for a further update right after Xmas. Needless to say I haven't heard anything (nearly another 6 weeks on...)

    Is this how you treat candidates? And a candidate for your "Senior leadership team"? If this is how you treat senior candidates, I would hate to think how you treat your clients or your employees!! The VP of People even mentioned to me during her interview that "there are some bad comments on Glassdoor about us which are actually fair and that we are trying to fix the issues". And THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT?? You definitely deserve those reviews and add one more to your collection here!

    All you needed to do is to respect the amount of time and effort candidates put in coming onsite and interviewing for you. And whats more alarming is that I got the same treatment (ignoring emails) from EVERYONE there. So disappointing! Incredibly unprofessional!

    I hoped I was an exception but by reading all the reviews I should had been wiser and not ever bothered with them.

    You might have a "great" company but if this is the culture, then let's see for how long...

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Act-On Software (Beaverton, OR) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Three mutually exclusive interviewers. Each with a different fit assessment. The interview was on location in Beaverton, Oregon with Corporate Controller, Senior Financial Accountant, and Collections Manager. Right from the start the fit felt right to me and I was able to answer honestly and truthfully. This was very important for me as well as the culture fit.

    2 interviews with management. One interview included bringing in someone from the sales team to ask me additional questions. Mostly probing to see if I would fit their current culture. Also asked to provide a quick demo of the software.

    Interview

    Interview was quick, the process was great. Clearly a startup as some of their processes weren't defined. I met with the recruiter first, then the hiring manager and a rep was in the interview, which was rather weird.
