I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Genscape (Boston, MA) in Sep 2019

Interview

Within a week of applying, HR reached out to schedule a phone screening. Next was a 30 minute phone interview with the hiring manager. Then an on-site visit, which consisted of 5 different 2:1 interview sessions. Ultimately, I did not get the job (it was given to someone internally, who had been part of the panel interviewing me). An overall quick and seamless hiring process, although it seems an obvious conflict of interest to be evaluated by a company employee in consideration for the same position.

Interview

The interview process was fairly straightforward. Initially I was asked to take a predictive index behavioral assessment. It took a couple of weeks, but eventually Genscape emailed me about scheduling an initial interview. This interview was very easy. The person leading it was mostly there to tell me the roles which I'd perform if I was awarded the job, and ask a few questions about why you wanted the job and if your experiences related to the job. The next week I received an onsite interview. This one was a bit tougher, but still not too tough. I had three interviewers who picked apart my resume and tried to test me with to problems which required creative solutions. After that part each interviewer sat down with me one on one in order to get to know me on a more personal level. Nothing seemed too difficult, but the interviewers did seem disinterested, and I felt like my interview was a burden on them.

Interview

It was incredibly unorganised, and frustrating.The human resource team reached out to me, to schedule an interview, but it took months to get scheduled. This was not the greatest experience and shows what kind of company they are.

Interview Questions
  • If we hired you, would you perform oral on me?

Interview

I was initially contacted about an internship position I had applied for but when I spoke to the interviewer over the phone, she recognized that I was a graduate and asked if I would like to be considered for a full time position instead. The first phone call was largely a screening call, followed by a conversation with the manager of the role, followed by a final interview with the manager and several of the team members I would be working with. Throughout the process the recruiter who initially spoke to me was my main point of contact and was tremendously communicative and reachable. Because I had another job offer, the recruiting staff were kind enough to accelerate their schedule and have a phone interview as the final round, rather than me flying to Boston.

Interview Questions
  • General "how would you perform in this situation" questions, as well as questions about my background and previous projects. After the second interview I was given a short corporate case study to evaluate.

Two rounds of phone interviews with an HR officer and a consultant respectively. Decision-making process took too long and professional manner was not something very attractive. The explanation by the HR was usually limited and time organization skill was lacked.

Interview

I interviewed with Genscape in Dec 2017. Very unprofessional company, both in respect to the recruiter and the people on the team I was interviewing with. Initially when the recruiter reached out to set up an interview, I never received a response despite following up. Only when I placed a review on Glassdoor noting their lack of follow up, did they respond. In any case, I finally had a phone screen with the recruiter. I asked the recruiter about salary via email because during the call she only asked about my expectations and never gave me a number. When I emailed her she still did not provide a number, only saying that we're in close range. Well, that's quite frankly not specific enough. I don't know why she was so reluctant to be transparent, but it's likely because they're paying under market. After I underwent two interviews with members of the Strategy team, the recruiter sent me a personalized note to let me know I wasn't moving forward which I appreciate it- I never bothered to follow up considering the tenor of my final interview. For a company that is not a hot commodity and let's face it, an unknown, their process is too long and drawn out with too much disorganization, unresponsiveness, and a lack of transparency about simple things like salary. I might be willing to go through such hoops with hot tech companies, but not Genscape. I had a call with the hiring manager that had to be rescheduled twice. I understand personal issues arise, and I understand having to reschedule once, but twice is excessive. Maybe it's best to just not schedule something, when there is a high level of uncertainty. My conversation with the hiring manager went well and she was extremely personable. The next step was supposed to be an onsite. But the recruiter changed her tune and said it would be an interview with Strategy Analyst(a peer). At this point, I was getting a bit annoyed, as I was in the final round stages for other companies I was way more interested in. Overall, there were quite a few red flags about this company that I had already experienced- the lack of responsiveness initially, the rescheduling, the lack of transparency about salary, etc. I decided to proceed because I figured I might as well keep all potential opportunities open. The next step in the process is where it fell apart. I had an interview with a Strategy Analyst, which would have been a peer. First, in most reputable companies you're not interviewed by peers. But if you are interviewed by peers, companies typically make sure those peers conduct themselves in a professional manner. Well, the Analyst did not. The minute he answered the phone I could sense the conversation was not going to go well. He really dug into whether I had experience with commodities. This is not something the hiring manager or recruiter mentioned. My background is not finance, but rather management consulting. So, if they were looking for someone with that industry experience they shouldn't have bothered to waste my time. Commodities experience wasn't listed in the job requirements either. Since the topic of commodities experience was never even broached, I was very taken aback when the Analyst kept on grilling me about commodities. Not to mention, the hiring manager never even mentioned commodities. The Analyst asked me if I had heard of Genscape before I had applied for the job. I said no, but upon learning about it, it seemed like it occupies an interesting space and that this role in particular has great projects in the pipeline. Anyway, he seemed unhappy with this answer. Well, newsflash. Genscape is not a well-known company. I am sorry to say. We then did a case which I thought went well. But he seemed to not like my answer. I frankly have no clue why. I've done cases before, and this was a qualitative case without numbers involved. I was then given time to ask questions and asked about the overall trajectory for an Analyst. He said something to the effect of "this job is really hands on. this is how I think about it. do I pay someone to teach me something or do I learn on my own?" So, we obviously know how this guy feels about business school. I hadn't even mentioned business school, so I don't really know why he went there. Anyway, he had a real chip on his shoulder. Basically, your prototypical bro. After asking a few questions, I brought the call to a close right at the 30 minute mark, stating that I didn't have any more questions, because there really was no point in continuing the conversation any further. Since this team consists of two people, the hiring manager, and the Analyst, it's best that I will not be working at Genscape. I ended up getting a suitable offer at a better company. In the future, Genscape might want to find another senior level person to conduct the next round. The hiring manager is perfectly pleasant. The Analyst not so much.
