    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Laika, Inc (Portland, OR) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Pleasant yet bordering on far to corporate for such a creative culture. At the end of the day I don't feel that the people I met were completely honest

    Safety Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hillsboro, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Laika, Inc (Hillsboro, OR).

    Interview

    They had three tiered interview process.

    Almost didn't make the phone conversation cut, because I wrote a creative cover letter. (For reference, they like the boring banker ones). I was asked basic list questions. They were dead-set on wanting to class the role as industrial hygiene and an industrial hygienist for the job. It was obvious the role wasn't clearly defined as a safety manager role either. They also were paying under the minimum end of the curve for the position by -15k. Lastly, they made it clear they don't hire veterans for management roles.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Laika, Inc (Hillsboro, OR) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Laika contacted me months after applying for this position. There were two interviews conducted over the phone followed by two interviews with different teams at Laika. Each time, I met with three or four people who I would potentially be working with. The interview seemed to go well. Unfortunately, the interview must have gone better for someone else because I was not offered the job.
