    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Digital Realty (Santa Clara, CA) in January 2017.

The Digital team successfully relayed the hiring time line, and was communicative and inclusive of me, the candidate, in the process. While I submitted my resume at the beginning of December 2016, and started the last week in January 2017, the timing of the interview process was fast paced and highly responsive.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Digital Realty (Chantilly, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    An initial discussion with the HR representative was conducted. The recruiter quickly setup a phone screen with one of the key stakeholders. That went very well and I was contacted immediately with feedback. After that I moved forward to phone interviews with three additional executive leaders. I was asked some situational questions as well as a review of key skills and experience. From there, I was asked to come on site for the final review. I really enjoyed the process and was kept up to date each time moving forward.

    Director of Talent Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Digital Realty in October 2016.

    Interview

    An effective interviewer should be able to predict a candidate's potential success and cultural fit for the role, which requires some basic preparation, understanding of the role, and engagement. In this case the interviewer was in a VP role, yet woefully unprepared, disorganized, and disengaged. He did not ask any questions that would provide insights into my technical experience, culture fit, or my professional objectives. Surprisingly, he was also unable to answer basic questions about the organization's structure, talent development challenges/opportunities (except the need to improve Glassdoor ratings), and seemed somewhat bewildered about why he had been scheduled to conduct the interview. About halfway through the interview, he said "I should probably have a look at your resume", proceeded to ask one general question about my first job in this field 14 years ago—not asking a single question about any recent career contributions. The entire interview was a waste of time.
