    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Genius Plaza (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    One thing that was novel about the process, as I was interviewing for a position where there was no office, my interviews were all handled via Google Hangouts.

    3 levels of interview:
    1. HR
    2. Department Head
    3. CEO

    As I'd made mention of my facility with languages, I was invited to conduct part of the interview in Spanish.

    After that I was contacted by HR as they wanted to move forward with adding me to their team

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Genius Plaza (Albany, NY) in April 2017.

    Django Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Genius Plaza.

    Interview

    1. Telephone call
    2. Screen Sharing + few multiple choice technical questions.

    The questions were all multiple choice, and based on python. The talent acquisition person never called back, and doesn't even reply to email.

    Getting rejected in interview is a normal thing, but at least an acknowledgment should be made at professional level. Things were handled very badly from their side.

    Product Management Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Genius Plaza (Miami, FL) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and asked to interview for a product management leader position. There was no job description. I was asked to go to an in-person interview with the CEO. I arrived on time the interviewer was running late so I waited 30 minutes. The whole interview was scheduled for 30 minutes and lasted an hour. The followed up the next week and let me know they'd be going in a different direction. The mission of the company is very powerful, but the interview process felt shockingly awkward and uncomfortable.

    Illustration Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Genius Plaza (Clifton Park, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick and simple. I met some representatives at a Career Fair and discussed 2 of my projects, which lead to the interview. The interview itself was a 30 minute video chat about the basics: who you are, what are you looking for, what do you like about the company. The majority of the time will be spent looking over some of your projects (2 most likely, 3 if they're quick). The interviewers are super relaxed and friendly, it was very easy to talk to them.
