    Technical Support Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Esri (Redlands, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    It’s a long process so make sure you aren’t applying last minute. Mine took 3-4 months, while others had an even longer process. They’re pretty transparent about the process and let you know how many interviews you will have to do.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Esri (Redlands, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online and they had a really quick interview process. Recruiter phone screen, tech phone screen, codepen interview (focused on OOP), onsite (mostly behavioral, a little technical with 1 leetcode interview at the end), tech phone screen with CTO

    Incredibly quick interview process. Most delays were caused by my schedule. I had a codepen on Thursday and the next day they called me for an onsite where I flew out on Sunday and had my onsite on Monday. My friend had a much longer process so I think this is team dependent.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Esri.

    Interview

    Everyone was very pleasant. First interviewed with HR (basic questions), followed by two phone interviews with management (spaced several weeks apart). Great questions, seemed to be enthusiasm all around. I actually really enjoyed the interview process, and learned a lot about their company.

    However, that interview was several years ago and they are still hiring for the position I originally applied for. I periodically checked over the years since my interview (as I left the whole processed confused by the outcome), and noticed that their postings rarely change. During our discussions it almost seemed as if they were probing me for information, not the other way around. That combined with the fact that in four years they don't seem to have officially hired anyone for that specific position (or for any of the other listings in my city) is odd to me. I wonder if they post specific Account Manager/Sales jobs to find relevant people in the industry and question them about their individual markets. (If you read their IT interviews, too, there seems to be a pattern of digging for information on how to solve specific problems - though not sure if they actually end up hiring anyone for those listings.)

    Again, my process was enjoyable in the sense that I truly enjoyed speaking to each person at every level. Everyone was very professional, intelligent, and kind. I am only writing this review to let people know they may want to keep other avenues open, even if it seems like Esri is going to hire them. I spent hours researching the company, for a job I believe never existed. On the bright side, they truly are an interesting company, so at least it wasn't time completely wasted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Esri.

    Interview

    It was a half-hour resume interview via phone call. I interviewed with two people, one, later on, was my manager and the other was a coworker whom I worked very closely with every day. And they got back to me in two weeks with the hiring decision. The process was pretty easy and quick.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Esri in October 2019.

    Interview

    Applied through ESRI Career portal.
    Process is HR interview followed by 2 Technical rounds and final Onsite interview (8 hours)
    Very slow in communication.Follow up communication from one round to next round was 20 days for me.

    The technical phone screen was one hour (Skype for Business) by an ESRI Product Engineer where we will be asked to write program.
    The product engineer has higher expectations.I felt this quite difficult round.

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Esri (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I applied for 3 jobs in April 2019. I received a call from ESRI HR in October 2019 saying my PDF resume had "gotten garbled in their system and they just found it". First was an initial 30 minute video interview with an HR consultant who seemed only partly engaged in the call. We discussed all 3 jobs available at the regional office I preferred. Several weeks later I was contacted for an in-person interview. That interview was fairly rote in questions asked and quite casual. We focused on only one position during the interview, and when I inquired about the other two I felt more qualified for, I was told that was a different hiring group and I'd have to go back and start the process again to interview for them. I was not offered the one job, and reached out to HR to proceed with exploring the other 2. It has been 6 months and I've never heard another word from ESRI HR. I see that all 3 positions remain open at that office ...

    ESRI was big on asking who I knew that worked there, and personal references seem to be leaned on heavily in their hiring process. I didn't bother to refresh my relationships with ESRI employees and try again. This process was rife with issues and a time sink from the start.

    Geospatial Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Esri (Saint Louis, MO) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with HR, phone interview with the office you'll be working at, quick phone call about onsite interview, then the onsite interview. I am doing my onsite interview tomorrow so I can't give insight on that yet. The phone interviews went well, the people are very nice and make you feel comfortable. Laid back, low pressure. The first phone call is to talk about the job description and to see if you're still interested, then the second is with the office you'll be working with, in my case 2 people. Both 30 minute conversations. They just want to learn more about you and see what you're interested in so they can see where you can fit in and grow within the company.

    Onsite interview is half a day, 7 thirty minute interviews with separate people (all one on one). 2 technical interviews, but no tests or riddles/puzzles.
