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 4 weeks. I interviewed at Houzz in Aug 2022

Interview

HR phone screen, hiring manager, virtual onsite. No homework or presentation. Virtual onsite had 6 sessions. Much more than the usual 4. Unprofessional scheduling — one person canceled halfway during the interview. One person canceled 10 min before it started. People mostly seemed very fakey. I got the impression that the people were subtly arrogant and subtly wanting to force their opinion on you or ‘win an argument.’ I didn’t sense a humble, ‘assume positive intent’ attitude or the possibility that maybe they could be wrong. Recruiter prepared me for onsite by focusing on my past experience and potential case studies. This was fine and as expected. However, the actual interviewers didn't aska bout these. They focused entirely on the Houzz Pro product itself. Several people directly asked me how we could make the product better. I felt VERY UNCOMFORTABLE answering this question. You are not supposed to directly ask candidates for ideas and improvements. Not without paying them first.

It was ok. They were a bit stuck up. They make you do a mock phone call and show around their modern offices and stuff. It was ok. It seems like their is a sorority like culture there.

Interview

Initial phone screening was standard - asked about experience, motivations etc. However, questions dragged on for far longer than necessary and at the end, they said they would get back via email but never did.

Interview

The interview process was typical and straight forward. However, there was a 3 round series to meet with upper management and also the team I’d be directly working with to be sure it was a good fit. The interview questions were typical and more so conversational.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Houzz in Jun 2022

Interview

I had a call with the HR Person who was really nice on the phone. I was scheduled for the day before but they pushed me to the next day last minute because of a short term meeting. Already a not so promising great start. They asked me the usual questions about why I left my recent employer, what salary expectations I had etc. I liked that they were open with me about the whole package at this stage. However, at the end they promised me they would get back to me at the end of the next day about how / if they would move forward. The day went by, so did the next, so did the next. It took them 4 days to get back to me with a negative outcome. While I understand things might get in the way, just be open about what is holding things up. In the end, I received an (automated?) E-Mail with a rejection. Overall a bad experience.

Interview

Die Person, die für die Einstellung zuständig ist, nimmt Kontakt zu uns auf, und danach ist kein Ton und kein Bild mehr zu hören. Wir haben nicht einmal eine Rückmeldung von ihr bekommen, obwohl wir sie mehrmals angerufen haben. Das ist wirklich taktlos, vor allem, wenn man bedenkt, wie viel man selbst investiert hat!
