    Engineering Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Apptio in February 2017.

    Interview

    After it took over two months to hear any response on my application, they offered a phone interview. I did not get called at the time we scheduled for the interview, so I followed up, and when they finally got back to me, said the position was filled as of ONE day after my interview was scheduled. Clearly they either need to figure out the communication between different members of the team involved in the hiring process, or do a better job of scheduling and timing their applicants. Somebody shouldn't be getting scheduled for an early-round interview at the same time that they're clearly far in the process with another candidate. Very unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Apptio in January 2017.

    Interview

    The whole process was pretty fast and the recruiter was very efficient!
    The process started with an initial discussion with the recruiter, followed by a phone discussion with one of the team members.
    Then a face-to-face discussions that went for about 4 hours and the interviewers were very friendly, personable and the discussions were enjoyable and helped learn about the role, company and the culture.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Apptio in January 2017.

    Interview

    It was a 45 min phone interview followed by two 45 minute video interviews with coding on collabedit. The second interviewer asked me a coding question that normally takes a person 1 hour to code. He had a thick accent which made it really difficult for me to understand him. I had to ask him to repeat himself several times and I could hear the general annoyance in his tone after a while. HR told me they would give me a decision in a week. After a week she delayed the phone call twice before saying no.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Apptio (Bellevue, WA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had a technical screen and coding questions, then was invited to an onsite, before I could book the interview another person from the team contacted me to tell me they will not continue pursuing my application. Very unprofessional that would be invited out for an onsite and then told that they are not going to continue with me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Apptio (Bellevue, WA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Was contacted by the recruiter and had a phone interview with her, and then a phone interview with an Accounting Manager who said she liked me a lot and wanted to have an onsite interview. I went the next week, and had 4 back to back interviews with the team. The last one who was the manager, went on and on about how much she liked me and how excited she was about me and that I would get "a lot of thumbs up" at the group meeting to discuss who to hire. Then a week later got called by the interview saying they decided to go with someone else. I wish that manager had behaved in a more neutral manner.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Apptio (Bellevue, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    In Person Manager Interview, On-Site Interviews. In case you want to work at a company that is completely clueless about its future plans and has arrogant leadership then Apptio is the place for you. Interviewers in the in-person interview were often late for the interview and spent more time on talking about their accomplishments and explaining why you are fortune to be considered for a job at Apptio v/s having a meaningful back and forth discussion. The salary was also below industry standards with no 401K match. Would not recommend.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Apptio.

    Interview

    As others have mentioned, painfully long hiring process. They clearly want the right person but they begin by wasting a lot of peoples time.

    Talked with 4 people on the phone over 3 weeks with the last phone call being a 20min technical interview which I don't think is a fair amount of time to assess a persons technical ability. On top of that, for the most part, I felt I answered all the questions fairly well with the exception of one which was not a great open ended question to ask overall to gauge someones technical abilities.

    Was told they are looking for someone who is mid level and they could work into a senior role but it seems to me they were looking for someone who has senior level experience to start at a mid level position.
