Interview

I was reached out to by the recruiter for an initial phone screening, then connected with two senior-level employees from the team for a 30 min video call (per person) a few days later. A day after that video call, I shared a phone call with the person who'd be the manager for the role, and a few days later received a 90-minute writing test. Overall the process took 14 days from email to offer.

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (Seattle, WA)

Interview

There were three rounds of interviewing. The first round was your standard HR phone screening. The recruiter explained the position, asked me some basic questions and then let me ask some questions. The second round was four, back-to-back interviews with people from that specific team. I was interviewing from out of state so these were all done via video conference. They were also broken up due to scheduling conflicts, so one was on one day and the next three were the day after that. I enjoyed speaking with all of these team members and felt like it was more of a conversation than your standard interview. The third round was with a vice president of that team. This was also via video conference since she was based in a different city than the office I applied at. This was another great interview that felt more like a conversation. Overall, this was a pretty good interview process despite how many rounds there were. I felt pretty confident that I was going to get the job, however, I did not. The recruiter told me everyone liked me and what I could bring to the team but gave me no other explanation as to why they didn't choose me.

It was a good interview process. However, I thought that some of the questions weren't entirely related to my job performance. But the other questions were on topic and relevant to the job posting.

Interview

I worked with a recruiter. I bypassed speaking with an HR rep and went right into an in-person interview with 3 separate employees. I met with all three in a two hour period and it went great. Two days later, I was asked to complete a writing test (all through my recruiter). That went great as well and I was asked to come back in to speak with the VP of the team I'd be joining and the AS who I assumed would be my manager.
