    Product Marketing Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jive Software.

    Interview

    Spoke to three different people, all super nice, but no follow up. Once i reached out I got rejected with no reasoning, after a week of silence. Wasn't sure who the right person to get in touch with was, had emailed a recruiter and had phone calls with a hiring manager and head of department I think. Was really excited about Jive and the feedback I got honestly made me think I got the offer, but no :(

    Manager, Support Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jive Software (Portland, OR) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter who asked some questions about my history and skills, then spoke with a Manager on the team I was applying for. Both were extremely friendly and answered any questions I had.

    In person interviews happened over the course of several hours where I met with various members of the management team as well as the direct reports I would be gaining should I be hired. These interviews lasted anywhere from 30-60 min and covered much of the job as well as how I would fit in on a team level.

    The last set of interviews were with the Hiring Manager (Director) and VP - these were roughly 45-60 min each.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jive Software (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Initial contact by recruiter, who set up the initial interview. Had another phone interview with the manager (same day), and later met with the manager. Also met with three others by video link as they were off site. Great use of resources which enabled me to only make one trip into their office.
    Very organized by recruiter, manager, and manager's peers. The whole process was very transparent, flowed very naturally, and left no surprises!
    I've ranked the "Interview Difficulty as average because it seemed we were all on the same page and didn't feel hard or too easy. :)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Jive Software (Portland, OR) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through their site and was contacted 3 days later by a recruiter. We spoke briefly and then scheduled a half hour phone interview to talk more about the job, company, and my resume. A couple days later I had a phone interview with the hiring manager where we mostly talked about my resume, the company and what the job entailed. A few days later I was contacted to schedule an in person interview where I would be flown out to Portland, all travel expenses paid for by the company. In the on site interview I was interviewed by 2 team members, the hiring manager, and the director of that department. The whole process was really great, everyone was helpful and answered all of my questions. A week after those interviews I was extended an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Jive Software (Portland, OR) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter called me and asked me a few qualifying questions. This process took about ten minutes. After that, she informed me that a manager would be calling me in the next day or two and she asked me what times would work for me. The manager called and spent about an hour discussing the position with me and asking me a few technical and non-technical questions.

    The recruiter called me back the same day and asked for an in-person interview. After we agreed on what days would work, she got back to me within a few hours with an appointment.

    On interview day, I arrived in the morning and interviewed with a few people remotely (over a video bridge) and a few locally. One of them took me out to lunch and we continued the interview. The questions were a mix of technical and non-technical.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to tell a story about when I had a difficult time convincing a co-worker to adopt one of my ideas.   1 Answer
