    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ellie Mae (Pleasanton, CA) in June 2017.

    1. Screening by recruiter - about 60 minutes.
    2. Initial Phone Interview by QA in platform team - about 45 minutes
    3. followed by onsite interviews- about 3.5 hours on site and full day off from work.

     I felt I was overqualified for the position.

    For all the time and energy invested by a candidate, at least put a closure with a followup email indicating your decision.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ellie Mae.

    Interview

    The Interview process was fairly straightforward.

    1. Recruiter call to go over logistics of the position, making sure you have the appropriate background as per the job description.

    2. Technical Interviews over the phone - So unfortunately there was some miscommunication on their end, some people rescheduling, etc, but I ended up having 5 phone technical interviews. These were fairly straight forward as well, starting with my background, scenarios dealing with requirements and end user requests, and general infrastructure knowledge testing for Linux, scripting, etc.

    3. Technical Interviews on-site. I had another 4 interviews on site, ranging from 1 technical interview with a talented systems engineer both about public and private server knowledge, and then 3 interviews with managers and HR to go over logistics and culture fit.

    Everyone was great!

    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
