    Leadership Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at HoneyBook (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    What I really liked about HoneyBook is its refreshingly open and honest culture. The entire interview process was run in a very professional way, with every interviewer coming fully prepared. And the questions were deeply introspective and anyone who tries to lie through it will be caught red handed! They have a culture of warm hospitality mixed with polite directness, which is my kind of place to work. What I would advise anyone who is interviewing here is simple: Know yourself! (which seems to be very rare these days, if I might add.)

    I thought I was reasonably well prepared, but the questions (at least for this position) were all behavioral and I enjoyed every one of them. I won't disclose the questions because you have to experience them yourself!

    Operations Interview

    Interview

    I received an email to schedule a phone interview a little over 2 weeks after applying. The phone interview lasted 30 minutes and I was hoping for more of a conversation, but the person I spoke to jumped from question to question. She said she would follow up with me later in the week. 2 follow up e-mails and 2 weeks later, I still haven't heard back.

    Marketing Interview

    Interview

    It was a professional yet casual interview at a coffee shop. It was more conversational than I expected, however we covered many thought-compelling topics about myself as well as the company.

    Marketing Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HoneyBook (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Got an interview through a referral. There was a very quick response, it only took a couple of days max. Started out with a phone screen that went extremely well and I was invited onsite. When I arrived, I immediately felt uncomfortable. This is a very small company, but you are forced to take a photograph and wear an 'outsider' badge. This is fine for a corporation, but HoneyBook does a terrible job of representing themselves as the scrappy company they are.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at HoneyBook (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward: phone screen with a recruiting coordinator, phone interview with the hiring manager, onsite with the hiring committee, final onsite/culture check with the head of people.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Not a great experience here. I think their recruiters are inexperienced. They were unable to answer simple questions about what aspects of the position do peers of this role find challenging and how as the company addressed these challenges. Sure they have some features in the press that are positive but what strategies has the company adopted for growth. No one could seem to answer that or what distinguishes Honeybook from others in such a niche industry.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at HoneyBook (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process was great. It involved around 4 phone interviews and 1 in person interview.
    The in person interview was a lot of fun. They started off with an ice breaker and it really helped .
    I also enjoyed that the basic interview questions (background information) was covered in the beginning of the interview with all the interviewers in the room.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at HoneyBook (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was long but well worth it! Everyone at HoneyBook is so caring and you can tell that they truly do, love what they do. I had multiple phone calls, video chats and in-person interviews and I must say, every interaction was perfect. HoneyBook has an amazing team with an awesome product to sell!

    Interview Questions

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at HoneyBook (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Quite a long interview process.

    1. Phone screen with recruiter
    2. Phone screen with Hiring Manager
    3. On-site for 3 hours with 5-6 people

    The on-site is draining after talking for 3 hours straight. Everyone was very friendly although I got distracted when one of my interviewers started texting. I had no “account manager” title on my resume but thought I did a great job relating my past experience to the role itself.

    They knew my experience from the beginning and that I never had that title. But, I was told that I got positive feedback from my interview and they loved everything about me except that I didn’t have “AM” experience. If this was the only reason they could deny me, they shouldn’t have moved me forward in the beginning (although I am thankful for the opportunity).

    I recommend giving people a chance and the willingness to learn. On the job description itself, it said to have similar experience so I believe I was qualified.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at HoneyBook (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I got an email from the recruiter saying she wanted to interview me, it first was a 30 minute call. The call was alright, kind of sounded like the answers were scripted and not very relevant to a traditional account manager role.
