    Corporate Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DocuSign (Seattle, WA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I was actively pursued for this role, but what a complete waste of time. They were apparently recruiting for 3 or was it 4? They didn't seem to know, Sales Managers. One of which may report directly to the VP of Sales, but again, not to sure.

    The recruiter was hopeless. No job description, no commutation as to what the roles really were or how they were defined and the salary level changed 3 times.

    I interviewed with three of the current Sales Managers, despite being told that my interview would initially be with the VP of Sales. The interviews all started late. Not one of the managers I met could really explain to me the long term opportunities for individual growth or the future vision of the company beyond where it is today.

    They seemed more interested in finding reasons not to hire than reasons to hire, hence why the positions are still open today.

    Nobody could confirm the salary level for the role or how it was measured.

    It seems you have to have a face that fits or a previous connection to get in at a management level here and the lack of vision or planning when it comes to the recruitment process and the future of the sales team is rather shocking.

    I'm sure you can go in as an individual contributor and do ok without this nonsense, but given the reviews on Glassdoor, I'm not sure why you would.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DocuSign (Seattle, WA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    starts with phone interview with the hiring manager, went well. simply just chatting, no technical stuff involved. follow by a in person interview. it was a series of 4 interviews with managers from different departments. mostly technical questions and white boarding. relatively easy questions comparing to the software giants (MS, Google, Amazon, etc). the only curve ball that i've encountered is the unexpected interview with the CTO, wasn't prepared but turns out okay.

    Interview Questions

    • The elevator question is probably the most difficult question overall but still relatively simply once you get your head straight and beat your nervousness.

      question: write a solution to operate elevators in a 10 story building.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    the hiring manager was asking what do i want for this position and i asked for a little more and was accepted. this may not work with everyone since my experience is more of a senior level but was interviewing for a lower level position

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DocuSign (Seattle, WA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    I had one group interview over lunch, followed by an informal tour of the office space (impressive!) and an informal interview with the group's director. I was a known entity to the group, as I had worked with many folks in this organization earlier and this was a company I was targetting as a very good place to land a new job.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was some back and forth and it took some time, but I think that is to be expected.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DocuSign in January 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter contacted me. After that there was a silence. I had to followup and get the telephonic interview scheduled. I cleared the telephonic interivew and was waiting for in-person interview to be scheduled. I waited for a long time. At last, I had to call and ask. The recuiter didn't pick the phone but called back after days. Apologized that he/she forgot. Later on it got scheduled.
    To reach to the location, although there were instructions provided, but later I found that the instructions didn't have proximity details. It took in 15-20 minutes to locate the office. Bad experience starts here.
    Now, the iterview - the interviewers were little rude in speaking. I had questions for them, but they never bothered to answer. Pretty lame...huh...
    Technical questions were ok, infact solvable, but there was a question that could not be solved in the 30 minutes duration. Still I managed to solve and clearly communicate that it is unsolvable. God knows what happened in the interviewer mind.
    Overall, negative experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DocuSign (Seattle, WA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, contacted by recruiter. Had a technical phone interview the next day, followed by onsite the following week. I was really impressed by how fast they were able to move the process along.
    Onsite interview was 4 hours. One conversational interview, two coding questions, and one logic puzzle. Who even does those anymore? Questions were very unclear and even after 5+ minutes of asking questions, I would start on the problem only to be corrected on some aspect of the problem I had clarified before. Changing the problem mid way through really sent me spinning and I wasn't able to show my best side.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at DocuSign in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied and got an automated email with specs for a project for me to complete and send back to them. I did and emailed it back to them and did not get notice of receipt. I emailed them back 2 days later to ask for a receipt confirmation and got a confirmation two days after sending the email.

    Then 3 weeks went by, I didn't hear back from anyone. I emailed to ask for feedback and no one responded. 5 weeks later, I got an email saying they are not going to move forward with my application because I did not use OOP (I did) or Separation of Concerns (I did).. Oh well..

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DocuSign (Seattle, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had applied for the Software Engineer role at Docusign. A recruiter mailed me with a challenge to finish. I spent a week time in designing the project and sent the source code with perfect documentation. I received a reply stating that we received the source. Over! But after that, there is no communication at all. Come on, at least have a courtesy to reply to a candidate's mails. It's been four weeks since I submitted the code and I have not received a reply. WORST!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DocuSign (Seattle, WA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    March 9th - I applied through DocuSign's careers page.
    July 6th - Recruiter sends me an e-mail to schedule a 30 minute technical phone interview. I was given three available dates from which to choose.
    July 14th - I had my phone interview with one of their Senior Software Developers.
    July 17th - Recruiter sends me an e-mail to schedule a follow-up phone call. I'm able to take their call that same day, and I ask for one day to make room in my schedule for the on-site interview. The next day, I schedule my on-site via e-mail.
    July 20th - Recruiter sends me the schedule for my on-site interview via e-mail.
    July 26th - I have my on-site interview. It begins with the recruiter giving me an office tour and answering my questions as we walk. The tour ends at my reserved interview room, where I then have five back-to-back whiteboard interviews with various people from engineering. Each interview is scheduled for anywhere between 30 to 45 minutes (the recruiter provided the schedule, and they stick to it well). After all the whiteboarding, the recruiter lets me ask any clarifying questions or offer any suggestions to improve their interview process, then escorts me out of the office.

    Interview Questions

    • I signed an NDA, so I can't divulge any specific questions. Per usual, you should brush up on data structures, algorithms, and other software engineering concepts such as big-O, multi-threading, parallel computing, and shell scripting.   Answer Question

    Strategic Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DocuSign (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I had multiple phone interviews with internal recruiter, hiring manager as well a current Account Executive and Sales Engineer and received positive feedback after each one. I then was asked to take a test and provide references which all came back as extremely positive. Last step was an onsite interview which went well(at least I thought). It's now been 2 weeks since the onsite interview and I have gotten no response from the company. Nothing! Not even a courtesy "Thank your for your time, but we have decided to go in a different direction." Very strange and very unprofessional!
