    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Box (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was comprised of 2 phone interviews, one with the hiring manager and one with the recruiter for the position, and then a Google Hangout with 4 customer success managers. Before the Google Hangout, I had a written exercise to complete and was given instructions for a presentation to give during the hangout. Overall, the interview process was pretty simple and everyone was very friendly and super helpful. However, the process was drawn out for a very long time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Box.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn and proceeded to set up a phone screen with a second recruiter. The phone call was pretty casual and straightforward. The recruiter was very nice and helpful the entire time. Unfortunately, we both realized it was not a good fit and I did not proceed to the next round.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Box (Austin, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Box is an incredible company and the interview process proved that they are efficient and take the time to know every individual in order to determine how they will fit with the company. The interview process took a total of 3-4 weeks starting with 2 phone screens with a recruiter, a 30 minute call with a sales manager, followed by a 2.5 interview round robin process with 5 interviews with different teams members and lastly, a 30 minute call with the director of sales/strategy. My recruiter was excellent at preparing me for each interview and each conversation was free flowing and in depth with my past experience.

    Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood, OR

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Box (Redwood, OR).

    Interview

    Process took almost two months between applying online to the final interview panel. This extended timeline was drawn out further by it often taking more than three days to schedule appointments. These delays in scheduling added a lot of stress on my end since my weekly calendar fills up very quickly. After a short remote technical screen the onsite portion was broken into two half day interview panels spread out over a couple weeks. The panels were well selected to represent a cross section of the many stakeholders for the role.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    I had a phone screen with the cofounder and one of his questions for me was, "what do you know about me?" It was a major turn off for me that some could be so egotistical right out the gate. Very quickly figured out that it wasn't a place for me. I told my recruiter not to proceed should they want next steps.
