    Interview

    Had an initial phone screen with HR. HR was just gathering info on me. Then follow-up a week later with hiring manager. The hiring manager did not have my resume in front of her. Her phone connection was poor. Bad preparation on company's part.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Brainshark (Boston, MA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Stay clear of this firm! This isn't my first rodeo with this firm but due to their sketchiness it will be my last. No emails beforehand but just a random call about a position I applied to months earlier. Red Flag 1. Asked a few unrelated questions but asked about salary first question. Red Flag 2. After a few weeks of nothing the scheduled a call with hiring manager. He never called. Red Flag 3. I had to reschedule and when I talked to him he sounded annoyed and hurried. Red Flag 4. Asked wayyy to much about other competitor firms since they were on my resume. Seemed to be digging for info. They have done this twice before.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Brainshark (Waltham, MA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively smooth. The first two touches came from HR and then the hiring manager via email/phone. The onsite interview followed shortly after that (about 1 week later) with the hiring manager and two members of the current PM team. There was no second interview however it did take some time to hear back regarding the job offer (about 3 weeks)

    Interview Questions

    • At the end of the interview I was asked to create a Brainshark highlighting either previous experience or a how-to on any subject I wanted (as the role involved training clients).   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brainshark (Waltham, MA).

    Interview

    Spoke with the director (who is super nice). Was then told to make a short presentation using their free software and come back in a few days to present it to the team of my would-be co-workers. I did so, and then talked separately with several team members including senior PMs as well as management.

    I gave them a range and they exceeded it somewhat.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brainshark (Waltham, MA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Group interview. They do a light version of this now. I interviewed with the entire team at once, and then with individual senior & mgmt members. Everyone was very nice, but the process was intense , long, and nerve-wracking.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Brainshark.

    Interview

    Phone interview, nothing in-person. Very informal and the interviewer didn't really seem to care who I was, she was just looking for a body to warm a chair that knew how to use a computer.
