    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orem, UT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alder (Orem, UT).

    Interview

    The interview took around thirty minutes. They also requested a writing sample. Unfortunately, I have never heard from them; I was ghosted. Since this company lacked the professionalism to send an email explaining they went with a different candidate, I would not recommend this company. Also my writing sample was free work, so I am not sure if they are using it. The company also low-balled the job. They want someone to do a lot of work for small of amount of compensation. From reviewing former employees reviews on Glassdoor, it appears to be company policy.

    If an organization can't be bothered to give you a prompt update about candidacy status after an interview, it signals serious internal problems.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Alder (Orem, UT) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through indeed. Heard back from Taylla the same day I applied and set up my interview. The interview was about 30-40mins. I was pretty nervous about the interview. But Taylla was awesome and really professional.

    Interview Questions

    • Like most interviews I’ve done. They asked the question, “tell me a little about yourself”. I find this question redundant. However, when I was asked this time, we ended up talking about my passions and my strengths. It was great because it seemed like they are not just looking for another person. But, they are looking for people who will fit Alder and their values.   1 Answer

    Senior Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in American Fork, UT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Alder (American Fork, UT) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had direct communication with the hiring manager and over the course of a two month period and multiple postings for the same position I was able to finally secure an interview. At the interview I was escorted to the hiring managers office and it appeared that even with the set appointment I seemed to be more of an inconvenience than a real candidate. During the interview I was informed that the position came open when he "fired" all the "weird designers" from the project because they cared way too much about what they were doing and not more about getting done what the company wanted.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alder (Orem, UT).

    Interview

    Bro talk. Came in and sat down with the interviewer. Asked me my schedule and when I could start. Talked about themselves and how awesome they are in the company and that this is a "chill" place to work. This was the most unprofessional interview I have ever had in all my years working.

    Technical Support Level II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orem, UT

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alder (Orem, UT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process could have been handled by one person, but it turned into a panel interview by 2 technical supervisors.
    I was asked to bring in a copy of my resume, and when I did they printed off another copy to read.
    There were some fairly basic questions asked, nothing which would indicate that you are interviewing for a technical / troubleshooting type of position, it was more in line of bro-talk, nothing serious.

    Interview Questions

    • How well do you work under pressure and how many calls were you expected to take at your last job?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase, I was in and out within roughly 15 - 30 minutes.
