    "Answered to what I knew" is the ideal answer. While we're looking for people that are confident in their skills and abilities, it's also critical that Alertians are aware of their limitations and... More

    Deployment Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alert Innovation (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Had phone call with a recruiter which set me up a phone conversation with a few members on their team. Overall thought the conversations flowed very well and I got an understanding of where the company was and what they were looking for and matched my skills to the position. Biggest disappointment was that they told me that they would let me know in a week, then they completely ghosted on me.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Absolutely horrible. Initially someone reached out and asked for availability, then didn't respond till I followed up, got forwarded to another person. Fast forward a month later, the other person said she called and left a voicemail (did not schedule a call beforehand), I didn't receive a call but whatever. I scheduled another time for the call, but unfortunately this time my phone was having issues, which is obviously my fault but I asked if we could reschedule and absolutely no response.

    Not sure why such inflexibility and rude behavior is shown to potential candidates, especially after showing them flexibility on my part.

    Bad form on our part, and not consistent with our culture at all. Very sorry you had a bad experience. If you'd like to contact us to discuss further please email us at HR@alertinnovation.com

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Alert Innovation.

    Interview

    I applied online and got contacted by HR in the same day. The HR asked me for list of available times. After I gave her the time list, no response ever. I sent a reminder email to the HR. Still no response. This is the most bizarre experience I ever had while interviewing with so many other companies. No one was like this.

    Electrical/Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Alert Innovation in September 2018.

    Interview

    I had several phone interviews, and then two on-site interviews. After the first on-site interview it was determined that I was not suited for the position I applied for, however I would be great fit for an alternate position I was also excited for. The second interview also went well with the new team, and after I left the interview, I was under the impression I would be receiving an offer within a few days. A few days went by, then a week. Then two. I emailed/called the recruiter with complete radio silence. I emailed several of my interviewers and asked for a confirmation of interest or lack thereof, and still had no response. After having such promising interviews, I felt it was incredibly unprofessional to not even hear that they were no longer interested.
