    Sales Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Very unprofessional and unprepared recruiting process. Was complete no show for scheduled/confirmed interview.

    Decided to give second change and didn't understand the true meaning of business development.

    I would recommend senior sales reps passing on a company that is unprepared to professionally represent their firm.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DrFirst (Rockville, MD) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very nice HR team. Did not seem to have in depth knowledge of the role or the needed skills for the role. They were more concerned about domain expertise than the skills needed to deliver marketing outcomes.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked very specific questions about a narrow band of their technology portfolio and wanted to know how I would add to it.   Answer Question

    Software Development Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at DrFirst in September 2016.

    Interview

    Had an interview with the internal recruiter. After a few schedule clashes and last minute changes, I finally talked to the hiring manager.

    The recruiter asked standard questions and why I was looking to leave the present job. What was my motivation to look at DrFirst. The hiring manager pretty much asked the same questions, including my ability to lead engineers and experience in hiring/firing folks. My history of experience leading to the present job. Also wanted to know what I did in the current job.

    A lot of companies ask development managers to be a bit hands on and have some recent coding experience. They wanted that too, but didn't ask any technical questions. I had a hard time understand some questions from the hiring manager due to his Chinese accent over the phone.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DrFirst (Washington, DC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I got interviewed by DrFirst around May 2016. Applied through LinkedIn and within a week received a call from the HR. Although it wasn't complicated interview at all but it lasted about 10 minutes. During the entire interview it felt like interviewer had already selected someone and was talking to me just because they had it scheduled. Questions were about what kind of tools do you use and other very basic questions about data quality.

    Sales Interview

    Interview

    I would be hesitant to work at this company. During the phone screening with their in house recruiter, she spoke poorly of their competitors. She also said that the CEO thinks sales is his "baby" and asked if I would mind if he worked alongside sales leadership. Coupled with the glassdoor reviews that the CEO is a control freak, it sounds like he needs his hands in everything. Lastly, after our phone screen, I never even got a courtesy email / call back with the status of my application. If the recruiter bashes competitors, CEO is a control freak, and they don't have the courtesy to respond to applications, this sounds like a very sketchy place to work. I would avoid.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DrFirst (Rockville, MD) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process has changed in recent months as new management came in with new recruiting philosophy. In a way, it's a lot easier now; No more Google-esque interview questions!! Lucky you.. It's now more of 'demonstrate actual code that you've written'.. Extra points for showing your passion for coding. Extra points for showing good solid fundamentals for developing enterprise software. No points for banter so maybe don't spend too much time talking about the weather.

    • Walk through your code, spend a lot of time on the piece of code you are most passionate about.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at DrFirst (Rockville, MD).

    Interview

    After a phone screening with the recruiter, there were two separate rounds of interviews. I met with a VP one-on-one, which was a great discussion of the team's chalenges. Later, I spent time with a panel of executives. The process was mostly positive.

    We decided it was not a perfect match, but it was all a good experience, and I wish the team good luck in the future.

    Interview Questions

    • Talk was mostly around product marketing. First interview was more of a discussion. The second was with a panel of execs. That was more questions being thrown out. If you know your stuff, an interview like this should not be difficult. I enjoyed it all quite a bit.   Answer Question
