    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Campbell, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hightail (Campbell, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Thorough interview process. Started with 30 minute phone calls with recruiting, then the hiring manager. I was then brought onsite a short time later to meet with 6 individuals over a half day. Those I met with were in sales, customer success and customer support and ranged from managers to directors. I was told the CEO regularly meets with candidates, but he was out of office that day. After I accepted, the CEO was part of my onboarding process which was appreciated.

    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hightail (Campbell, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn. Took several weeks to schedule a call with the recruiter. Recruiter called 45 minutes late and never called me back or answered the phone. Also never replied to any emails. Extremely unprofessional experience from their recruiting team. I can't recommend anyone apply to such a broken company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hightail.

    Interview

    Applied through University
    got call for onsite interview after 2 weeks

    The entire process took 2 weeks. I applied through my school's career center and received an on-campus interview promptly. I do not think I was completely qualified for the position, so it is understandable that I did not pass the interview. I never received any communication after my interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hightail (Campbell, CA).

    Interview

    This is really a great company, it's a hidden gem in Silicon Valley.

    The technology is new and relevant. The people that work there are smart and friendly. It's profitable. Exec management seems to know how to manage money, instead of accumulating mountains of debt/VC money and spending it on advertising, they're more careful about how they spend.

    The perks are great... free drinks (beyond soda), and snacks. Nice yuppi location if you have a family. Other perks.

    Also, it's a fairly engineering-driven company... the PM said "Everybody is a PM here" ... meaning everybody influences the products' direction.

    Interview Questions

    • They basically asked "google interview" questions... code an algorithm on the white board. They also asked Qs about cultural fit, how to make the product better, etc.   Answer Question

    Engineering Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hightail (Campbell, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for an internship online in June 2013 - I heard back within a week.

    The interview process was straightforward. A phone screen with an HR representative, then a phone screen with an Engineer on the team. A few days later they asked me to come to the company headquarters in Campbell for an on-site interview. I had 5 interviews. The first lasted about 15 minutes and was with the Director of Product, this was mostly questions about company fit. The next two interviews were technical, each lasting about 30-45 minutes. The questions were straightforward, some recursion questions, linked-list questions, and for-loop modulus questions. The fourth interview was over lunch with an engineer, and was a good chance to ask questions and hear honest feedback. Last meeting was with the Mobile Team Lead, no technical questions.

    I was called and offered the position later that day. Good experience overall.
