    Anonymous Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Clemente, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DealerSocket (San Clemente, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I have to say this was one of the worst job interview experiences I've had.

    To get to the interview stage, I first had to go through a phone screening. Then a timed online personality and IQ test. Then another IQ test, this time with them watching me take it on Skype.

    They scheduled an interview, then canceled and rescheduled. When I got to the interview, the manager appeared to be going through the motions. There was no engagement in the conversation. He didn't appear the least bit interested in what I had to say.

    After about 10 minutes, he told me they had an internal candidate they were thinking of hiring, but they "wanted to see what else was out there." Then he said, "Well, I'm done, unless you have any questions."

    They never had any intention of hiring me in the first place. The interview process, including the tests and the hour round-trip drive to the interview was a waste of time. They never bothered following up to let me know I didn't get the job.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DealerSocket in May 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring & interview process is straight forward. The process was done entirely remotely in my case. From resume submittal to confirmation of hire was approximately 30 days. First stage of process focus' on "assessment test" which everyone goes through. They send you information to familiarize yourself with the format and types of questions. You take this exam twice, first time un-monitored, second time monitored. Next stage is "in person" over Skype. These questions are specific to your job. I found them pertinent and fair. The final stage is to complete a "take-home" page mock-up. They give you the assets that a designer would typically create and want you to create a responsive page from the mock.

    The interview process was very fast and streamlined. Took a 15 minute test (basically IQ test) online. Came in for an hour and half interview with some engineers. Was asked relevant programming questions. No ridiculous questions because someone read that google asks them.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DealerSocket.

    Interview

    You need to pass a personality and a logic test. Quite a few phone/Skype interviews, about 5-7 before an in-person interview. Interviews assess your personality/work ethic to see if you will make a good fit in the team and at DealerSocket. A few general SQL questions are asked.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DealerSocket in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was asked to take a skills assessment. After I completed it, HR said they needed me to take another assessment with them on Skype while I take it, to make sure I was taking it by myself. Afterwards I was asked to interview in person. I met with the Director and got to know him and the company a bit better. At the end he said I'd hear back soon. I never heard back. I even emailed HR two weeks later asking for an update and did not get a response. HR should be able to respond saying the position is filled if management decides against a candidate but they didn't.

    Senior IT Systems Engineer ($100k) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Draper, UT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DealerSocket (Draper, UT) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on-line for a Sr. IT Systems Engineer role in Feb/Mar 2016. I received a phone-call from HR in early April, then an e-mail to take a 'Are you going to kill us' Personality Test. The instructions indicated respondents WOULD NOT receive a copy of the results. A possible employer asking you to take a psych test, and not share the results - THAT'S a feel-good moment! I took the 'test' minutes after receiving the invitation. The following morning I sent an e-mail to HR asking for an update. I then received a call from HR a few hours later to schedule an in-person interview for a few days later.

    The interview went extremely well (I think?). The interview lasted about 45 minutes and the hiring-manager stated "I like everything about you. You've set the bar very high." and "You're the one to beat!" I was off on a cruise the following week, and the hiring manager was out of town as well, so the timing was perfect. I asked the hiring manager when he expected to make a decision. He said "Not until after you get back." That gave me a LOT of confidence. I did ask if I was replacing someone, etc. I was told there had been 4 Sr. Systems Engineers, and they were down by 2, with no explanation given. HMM.

    I followed-up once I returned from the cruise, only to get a "We are not going to pursue you as a candidate." e-mail. I asked for feedback & was told the manager was too busy. Waiting a week and having this on my mind, I asked to be reconsidered, with NO RESPONSE, given.

    Interview

    Interview process was ok, they could have done more, they hired a lot of unqualified people too quick. I had an on the phone with the recruiter, went in for the test ad drug test. Finally was able to interview. I sat 1 on 1 with two different people and was offered the jobs on the spot which is good. However i think there should have been more interview for bot the employer and myself
