    Outbound Sales Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Faithlife in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and they offered to consider me for another position. I ended up being offered a job about a month after my initial contact. In all, I had 3 interviews. First, one was a very basic personality interview. Second, was additional personality questions as well as questions pertaining to the position. The second interview also included a test portion. I was given a typing test, as well as a Bible knowledge quiz, and a few extensive math word problems. In addition, I was asked to rewrite a couple lengthy emails. This interview took about 2.5 hours in all. The third one was an executive interview and that was nerve-racking but lasted only 15 minutes and I was offered the job immediately afterwards which was a relief. Put in the time to do your research and be prepared to give honest and concise answers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Faithlife in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied at Faithlife in October 2016. Received an interview request within a week, interviewed over Skype at Faithlife's Bellingham office in October 2016. The interviewer seemed pretty disinterested and asked very simple OOP questions, random Java-specific questions. Apart from the string counting, no real algorithm questions or problem solving. The whole interview seems like it would be incredibly easy for a dev with even a little bit of experience, as long as you brush up on your Java and OOP (which I didn't).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Faithlife in October 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Faithlife after talking to them at a career fair through my school. There was a presentation of their software/company and then a 3 on 1 interview afterwards. Interview was about 30 minutes. The interview was about half trivia/talking about yourself/experience, and half the coding portion.

    I started with a screening email then moved onto a video interview. It was a friendly interview that focused on technical questions rather than application questions. The company seemed to have a pretty relaxed culture.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Faithlife in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was preceded by a phone screen. Then about two weeks later I had a video interview with three engineers. It was straightforward and they asked me questions that were not very difficult, but I was caught off guard on the level of specificity they asked for. They first asked about my background, then jumped into technical questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Faithlife in April 2013.

    Interview

    Was only contacted to do two 1:1 phone interviews that were each very brief. These were each more like an initial screening, both with different teams to see where fit might be better. I thought the first went awful, and the second went okay. I was pretty shocked to get the offer!

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Faithlife (Bellingham, WA).

    Interview

    Phone screen, in-person, another in-person group interview. Unorganized group interview, everyone seemed on different pages and was hammering out questions. Seemed extremely scattered and conducted unprofessional hiring practices. Wasn't impressed at all.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Faithlife (Bellingham, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    There was a well managed 3 step interview process. 1. a one on one personal screening 2. an interview with dept. heads and managers discussing abilities and expectations 3. an interview with CEO and Vice President where a few short and to the point questions were asked, seemingly just enough for them to determine if there were any glaring red flags. Maybe this last 3rd step is a bit of a policy that they developed and comply with, but I'd determine that steps 1 and 2 were the primary opportunities to sell yourself. For the most part I would assume after step 2 they knew if they wanted to hire you or not. It seemed to be a pretty thorough process that helps the company be able to do a good job of vetting a potential employee. Though on the job seeker end, the process did take some time.
