    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ellie Mae in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a recruiter, then a hiring manager. I was encouraged to follow up with the hiring manager with any questions, but they would not return my calls or emails. They do not have the common decency to even send you a rejection letter... your application sits "on file" for eternity. Encompass is buggy, unreliable software anyways.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical run of the mill stuff- interviewer was more interested in talking than listening.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ellie Mae (Pleasanton, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process went well, but took some time. There was comfort knowing that while I was being interviewed by talent acquisition, several department managers, and a couple of executive leaders, I also had the opportunity to interview each of them. Between phone calls and a site visit, I was able to conclude this would be a company vested in my success, would offer a wonderful workplace environment, and would be confident in my abilities to perform.

    Interview Questions

    • To translate a business scenario to code (or pseudocode).   1 Answer
    • Typical questions when discussing positions detailed within a resume. I was also asked questions geared towards gaining insight into my technology and mortgage industry experience/knowledge.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations, the initial offer was fair.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ellie Mae in May 2016.

    Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Ellie Mae (Pleasanton, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview with the recruiter and hiring manager, then in-person interviews with several members of the team and the hiring manager, then a second round of in-person interviews with upper level management, then a last round with the business partner I would support. The hiring manager was very transparent about the process and next steps. The internal recruiter and talent acquisition coordinator were both easy to communicate with and very friendly and professional.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions pertained to my experience to assess whether or not I could do the job and there was also a lot of questions to assess whether I would be a good fit into the team and culture. Regarding skills, they asked if I had worked on various types of analyses or done forecasting for various parts of the P&L. Sometimes they proposed hypothetical questions to see how I would approach solving the problem. Regarding fit, they asked about how I worked, how I communicate, and they asked situational questions.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ellie Mae in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and after a few weeks, I was contacted by the recruiter. He asked for my availability for a phone call, which I promptly provided. However, after that email, I never heard back from the recruiter. A second email didn't yield anything.

    This is very unprofessional and speak volume of the organization hiring practices. I am somehow glad that I did not go through with the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing. The recruiter cut of all contacts after the first email.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Once I got past the recruiter, I had a conversation with the hiring manager then was invited for a face to face interview. Met with 3 people in the department. Was called back for round to and met with 4 people in the department including the CHRO. It took about a half a day for each face to face session.
