    Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Progressed normally at first: screening, panel interview, take-home technical questions, director-level interview scheduled... I had shared my salary expectations and current salary earlier, but they waited until now to tell me they wouldn't even try to match my current salary... Waste of time! Low salaries even for Vancouver.

    Partner Program Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Global Relay in December 2014.

    Interview

    Process started off with a phone call expressing their interest and requesting a phone interview. Phone interview went well and I soon got an in-person interview. First hour of the in-person interview was with two team members. Second hour was with two operations and hr executives. After all that was done, I received a request to have another phone call but to first send in my references. Soon after, I received a phone call offering me the job. Overall I talked to around 7-8 people and they were all friendly and pleasant. The office was also very nice and in a great location.

    Interview Questions

    • They provided a technical/brain-teaser assignment which was fairly simple.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered the job but declined due to the specific position being more basic than I thought and the salary. Other reviews and things I had read about the company also played a part.

    Backend/DevOps Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Global Relay (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was a phone call with a guy who was supposed to do a technical screening, at the beginning he asked if I applied for the "backend position" and I replied with "no, I applied for the DevOps one" and his answer was "Oh, it is all the same".
    He only did basic "do you have experience in X?" questions. It was like if he was only doing simple checks on a sheet. And no matter how deep I went with one subject his answer was only "ok". No deep questioning, no thought required.

    When I asked if they have plans to move to a public cloud his answers were more from someone who doesn't understand the cloud and is simply repeating what a higher up said: "The cloud is not secure", "We could not afford to lose any data" and "at the end of the day we are better than them".

    At the end it was one of the shortest interview I ever made. Less than 20 minutes!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Global Relay (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    1 - applied online in may 2017
    2- soon after I received a call from hiring manager
    3- almost a month past , but in june , I was ask to make a technical assignment for them to review my technical skills. At that point I still didn't know much about the role, the team but looks like they are interested so let's make this technical test.

    4-Finally after 3 more weeks, so 2 months after I applied , they accept to meet in person for the first time. At that point I had lost nearly all motivation as they let you do an assignment but you dont know anything about them , never met , how can you commit yourself to strangers.

    Terrible experience in the interview:
    The panel interview was terrible, they didn't care about what I did in the technical assignment but they were specifically curious about how my current company does stuff..maybe they were after new idea or solution...and candidate are free compare to consultant .

    There was one phone interview, then you're given 48 hours to complete an assignment. Then there's an in person technical interview that involved a panel of team leads and developers from the company to discuss the solution to your assignment. There's some whiteboarding and other questions about your knowledge of the technologies that they use. Sometime later, there's also a HR interview to determine cultural fit.

    Training & Customer Support Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Global Relay (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring process is thorough and takes its time. There is a phone interview, then an in-person interview, for the training team specifically there is a job shadow meeting to observe a live training call(not sure if other teams require this step), and then a cultural interview to see if you will fit into the company.
    The whole process took 3 weeks for me, but I was the first candidate interviewed, so the timeline may vary.
