    IT Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Everbridge in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on-line and received an email within a day or two from an internal recruiter. We were able to setup a date & time for a 30-minute phone screening and all seemed well. During the phone screening it seemed like the HR recruiter was too busy to talk to me, almost immediately after we greeted each other he indicated that he's seen my resume and is impressed, named a few things, asked me a few questions, and then asked me if I wouldn't mind holding because he has to take an important call. After about five minutes of being on hold the recruiter returned, gave a courtesy apology, and told me he was impressed with my background and would like to move forward by getting my resume to the hiring manager and arranging a phone screening with him and then, hopefully, an in-person interview. Prior to moving forward, I asked some very basic questions related to the company history and the top three to five "must-have" items the hiring manager was looking for. The recruiter let me know that I had great questions, but stated that the hiring manager was the only person that could answer my questions so he wanted to move forward. The recruiter proceeded to ask me what my current salary is and I responded by emphasizing the fit within the team as the highest priority. After the recruiter pressed me I responded with the salary range I was looking for. The recruiter sounded displeased and identified that there was no way the company could pay me that much and that I would have to lower my range since the company already pays really good. I let the recruiter know that I have done my research and my range is reasonable, based on Glassdoor and similar sites, and that I understand if the salary is out of range for the company. The recruiter insisted on sending my resume to the hiring manager and having the phone screening before moving forward with salary discussions, to which I agreed. The recruiter identified that he was very busy and would prefer me to email my questions so that he could provide a proper answer. The total phone call lasted 15 minutes, which was odd. After the phone call, I emailed my questions and after two days I received a response. After a week I received a random email from the recruiter asking to connect, to which I agreed. We scheduled another phone screening, but the recruiter never showed up. After another email, another phone screen was scheduled for the following day. On the day of the last phone screening the recruiter identified that he was not able to identify the time the phone screening was scheduled for. At this point, I responded by thanking the recruiter for the time since it appeared he was too busy and should be focusing on whatever he is working on. Ultimately, my experience was quite poor and I am disappointed. The company does sound like a great place that may be going through some growing pains. I am disappointed that the recruiter seemed so careless and was unable to answer basic questions about the company and the job he was recruiting for. This experience gave me a negative impression about the company and validates the reviews on Glassdoor. Since this is my only experience with the company, this is my only point of reference. Should things change or they show interest in me and take the proper care, I'm sure my opinion could change for the better.

    Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Glendale, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Everbridge (Glendale, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    The interviews were short and to the point. I could see right off the bat who had energy and enthusiasm in the company and who didn't. Some people who interviewed had no clue what role I was trying to get or what the job description was. Overall my direct reports were nice and seemed like they really wanted me in the role, so that continued into my job when I was hired.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There really was no negotiation. I asked for more time to decide and I was pressured to hurry up and make a choice. HR was telling me they had other people that wanted my position and if I could just make a choice and tell her over the phone. It was awkward, but it has overall been a bittersweet experience for me.

    Sales Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Everbridge (Lexington, MA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screening with HR, on site interview with hiring manager and director.
    Phone screening was very light, the HR person who contacted me did not seem to know very much about the position.
    The on site interviews where scheduled one after the other and lasted for a bit less than 1 hour/each.
    I got a very good impression from the company when visiting: nice office where people seemed to enjoy working. (Location was not great though, far from everything.) As in many tech companies employees seemed to be predominantly (white) male, this was also the case for all who interviewed me. It felt a bit like a boys club.
    Hiring manager was very nice and did everything to encourage me and convince me that this was a great position and company, Director was tougher, more trying to find weaknesses in my experience and background. Leaving the interviews I had the impression I would get an offer, since my background fit the requirements and since the interviews had gone well.
    2 days after the interview HR told me they had chosen another candidate. I contacted both HR and the Hiring Manager to get some feedback to help me in my future job search and got no response what so ever. A pity considering that as a job seeker you put time and effort into the process - a good company will pay back at least by giving you feedback on what to improve.
