    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Well.

    Interview

    Phone screen which lasted about 30 minutes. American Well is a company from Massachusetts so I was wondering why they were recruiting in other states. They said they were looking for several remote developers. Sounded good, but not sure if they were actually looking to hire in other states. They didn't have an office in my state. The phone screen was quite easy, I was able to answer all questions except one on the front-end. My resume clearly shows that I am a back-end developer and I applied for a back end developer position. Anyways, a few days after the interview the HR person says I was rejected without saying why. I don't understand why I was rejected but the Indian lady I interviewed with clearly didn't think I was a good fit, even for this mid-junior position. Honestly felt it was just a waste of my time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Well in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. After few days I got an email from HR and scheduled initial phone screen. After that we scheduled a phone interview with technical person. They asked me to tell about my previous experience and there was some basic questions about java and databases. I answered everything and thought the interview went excellent. After a week without response I wrote an email and got reply that they need someone more experienced. I was surprised since I know I answered all technical questions, so may be a reason was different.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Well (Boston, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Over the phone interview followed by two in person interviews. All of those interviewing were welcoming and kind. Malleability is important to the interviewers because the company is changing quickly. They want to know that the employee is willing to mold to the needs of the company. In other words, don't assume your role will not change.

    Integration Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Well in October 2018.

    Interview

    Phone screen with Talent Acquisition / HR was fairly straightforward. However I did not have further phone screens with the folks I was told I was going to speak with. And I was eventually called about 10 minutes late for a half hour phone interview with a very disagreeable current employee. The questions asked of me were not open-ended - the interviewer was looking for very specific answers and acted rebuffed when I did not engage them back in this manner. It was a terrible experience and I walked away annoyed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at American Well (Boston, MA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Talked briefly with CIO on the phone, interviewed in person, then no response. No thank you, no follow-up, just nothing. Ask yourself: if an employer treats its candidates like this, just imagine how they'll treat you when you work there. I was told the the first few months would be "very difficult" (meaning: lots of weird hours, zero direction, and the blame game when things go awry). I was also told there is no training money budgeted for IT staff, so you either know it, you learn it, or you'll be fired. My guess is that they're a typical start-up looking to expand and anyone they hire for this position is expendable. Beware.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at American Well (Worcester, MA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online, took 2 weeks I received an email from a recruiter to conduct a phone interview. First time, the recruiter emailed me saying that won’t be able and if it is ok to reschedule for the following day at the same time. I confirmed with the recruiter then we were supposed to have the phone interview but never heard from the recruiter. It was waste of my time. A company like American well should have a better recruiters team.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Well (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I was brought in to the office for an in-person interview. I met with a junior person for 15 minutes. Then the head of marketing spoke to me for less than five minutes. There was no follow up on their end at all.

    It was as if they already hired someone and just wanted people to come in (waste my time) to fill some quota.
