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

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

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

I interviewed at Hightail

Interview

Surprisingly non-technical. Two interviews (over the phone), and no coding questions or assessments. One interviewer for much of the second half of the interview just (very naturally) gushed about how much he loved working there, which was great to hear. They were also very amenable to your preferences, and I got matched up with a really amazing project based on the interests I expressed in the interview.

Great. Everyone was very friendly and helped me through the process. Felt as if they were partnering with me as opposed to interviewing me. Met with many members of the team including the CEO and COO. Everyone was very intelligent.
