    Enterprise Account Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at G2 Crowd (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with the recruiter, then took the personality assessment and aptitude test, much like the SAT. After that I had meetings with the VP of Sales, Director of Sales, and Account Executives. The following week I came in for a final interview and mock presentation. I received an offer the same day and accepted. I also had the chance to speak with the CEO about his vision for the company before singing the offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at G2 Crowd.

    Interview

    Beware of applying to this company. They automatically send you an hour long test and if you don't fit their prescribed "profile" you automatically get a canned rejection the day later.

    So about this test: there are 3 sections (SAT problem solving, reflexes / memory, and personality). I could kind of understand the personality test, but that is what interviews are for. Like, what do you hope to gain from a recruitment standpoint by testing my reflexes?

    Interview Questions

    • You will receive a sequence of numbers, one at a time. Press F if the number on screen is different than the number two numbers ago, and J if it is the same.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at G2 Crowd (Chicago, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Found the company through Built-in Chicago where then, shortly after, I found myself looking at their Glassdoor page. I was curious about the company, so I decided to learn more about it as they had a good overall rating score.

    
For the sake of making this 'essay' be as readable as it can be, I will separate the hiring process in 5 parts:



    1. Applied online. Then, I received an e-mail to take the aptitude test.

    This test was divided into 3 sections:
    - Wonderlic test

    - IQ/Reflexes Test
    
- Personality test



    2. Then, I received an email from the internal recruiter which then helped me schedule a phone call with a Senior Software Engineer. I was asked about my experience and previous projects. I was told I was going to be sent a coding challenge.



    3. I had 1 week to complete the coding challenge. The great thing about this take-home challenge is that they give you the freedom to pick the language of your choice



    4. At last, I was brought in for an in-person interview. I met with 4 people: the product manager, team-lead engineer, CTO and Senior Software Engineer.
    
The in-person interview was great. Everyone was super approachable and nice. You feel welcome when you get there, and you can tell everyone loves what they are doing.
    The first interview was highly technical. The other interviews were easier going and were composed of more behavioral questions.

    5. Finally, I was told that they were going to let me know of the results by the end of the week. Fortunately, I was offered the position, and I happily accepted.

    In summary, it was a wonderful experience. My only advice would be to be yourself and be positive. Talk about your projects in detail. If you are taking the test, make sure to have zero distractions. I would recommend taking some Wonderlic tests, so you get to learn the format a little bit. Personally, I felt very comfortable with everyone I interviewed with. They all seemed to enjoy what they were doing, and I felt that my passion aligned well with theirs.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at G2 Crowd in August 2017.

    Interview

    Uh... I applied the position online and was asked to do an online questionnaire. I was expecting an OA or CS knowledge test, like other companies do, but it is actually an aptitude test and it is the most ridiculous online assessment I have ever had.

    The questionnaire starts with bunch of multiple choice non-technical questions. Those questions are fine. They are like IQ tests. It makes sense to test if a candidate is smart or not. The second part is a set of exercises, including memorize the cards two cards back, hit some key when you see something, hit some key when you see certain shape ... craps like that. The third part is even worse. There are literally a hundred questions asking whether if the interviewee considers herself/himself to be easily irritated, to be anxious easily, to be aggressive ... etc. Even though the questionnaire is stupid, I still finished it and I get a reject next day. I should have read the previous interview review and save myself an hour of time. Considering I did not do well at the memorization test, I rate this interview as difficult and also ridiculous and unreasonable.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at G2 Crowd (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I heard about the job from a friend and was referred to the HR point of contact at G2 Crowd. We chatted on the phone briefly and then I was asked to complete a couple tests. Once I took the tests I was invited in to the office for a series of interviews with 3 different leaders and then the CEO (Tim). I also had to re-take the test in the office. Shortly after that I was offered the job and I accepted!

    Interview

    No interview just and email with a link to an aptitude and personality test. After taking the test I never received any type of feedback from the company. All I can say is - I wouldn't work for this impersonal, robotic and discriminatory organization. Sorry you don't have enough faith in your HR department to screen candidates in a more personal way. Maybe if you actually talked to them rather than testing them you would have found out in advance that they have no emotional intelligence. Note to Management: If you lose the soft skills, you will never truly be successful.

    I applied online. I interviewed at G2 Crowd.

    Interview

    Applied for the role on LinkedIn and they sent me this ridiculous Aptitude test. The worse I've seen so far in my job search. Didn't bother to finish it because it didn't make any sense to me during the middle of selecting keys with the images on the screen. There is no way that this "IQ test" should be used to indicate whether a candidate is the right fit for the job. I will no longer be applying for any more roles at this organization.

    Interview

    Weird and pointless test before even talking to anyone. If you've got an hour to kill, go for it, but don't expect anything rewarding. If you're one of the chosen ones, hooray. If it's their play to weed out people who don't want to waste time on the test, so be it, but you're likely missing out on good candidates if your basis for inviting someone in for an interview stems from it. Seems like credentials are of secondary importance, I take it? And if someone makes it past the initial test round, they take it again at the in person interview? Not necessary. At all. Gives me the impression that this company, even though it looks like an enjoyable place to work, is plain lazy and not unique as they want to believe regarding their hiring process. Yeesh.

    I applied online. I interviewed at G2 Crowd.

    Interview

    This company ranks zero on the human factor scale. Before talking to anyone (not even a phone screen), you are directed to take an online iQ + personality + skills test. The test is BS. Standard ACT-style (easy) with a memory section (focus and you're OK)... but the personality test... well, that's where they get you. You basically have to hope your answers align with the preferred personality profile for the job you are applying for. If not, you'll get a canned rejection letter the day after you take the exam.

    I got a mail from them, stating you have been chosen for this screening test, please complete it by yourself and If we feel you took anybody`s help we will make you do it again in a proctored environment.
