    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Brainshark (Boston, MA) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Pltwo phone calls and a coding exam. Got a form rejection the day *before* the coding test was due. I’m glad I didn’t spend a lot of time on it.

    If you’re going to progress a candidate to a coding test, you owe it to the candidate to let them submit the test.

    Customer Success Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Got an automated email pretty quick confirming that application was received. Never heard anything else. Looked up the number for their HR department and left a message and email there to follow up on status. Even tried reaching out to others listed as hiring managers via LinkedIn.
    Would have been fine with a batch email of sorry we're not interested at this time, but just unfortunate that I couldn't even get that.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Brainshark (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    3-steps:
    1) Telephone Interview
    2) Product Demonstration
    3) Meetings with supervisor and peers

    I have the impression it is more about your personality than anything else. Interview process is not standardized and varies depending on the department and hiring manager.
