    Content Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at LiveCareer (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Email communication seemed unnecessarily formal. During my phone call with the recruiter, I was disappointed to learn she hadn't spent much time speaking with the hiring manager about the needs for the role. All interviewers want you to have questions for them, but she wasn't able to answer any of them. I'm not sure she understood the role, my potential value. She asked for writing samples and to move forward but I wasn't interested in pursuing the role after speaking with her.

    Product Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LiveCareer.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out by email after receiving my application online. I responded with my availability and waited a few days for a response. Sent a follow up a week later to check, still no response. Sent a third two weeks later, no response. If your team has moved on to other candidates, at least have the common courtesy to notify candidates you've already contacted. This was a disappointing experience.

    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at LiveCareer (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very pleasant. First, I spoke with the HR who asked me mostly behavioral type of questions. Second, I moved forward and met the marketing team in their offices. They all seemed very smart, talented people. Questions were different - depending of the team, mostly focused on their teams needs and solving "situational" problems. The last stage was a case study. These guys should coach other big companies (tech startups) on how to do HR - they are personal, friendly, and make the candidate feel that he/she is an important member for the company (right from the beginning).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at LiveCareer (San Francisco, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the job through the recruiter on linkedin. The recruiter matched my profile and once found that mine was a good fit she called me to check other requirements for the role. I received a mail for the phone call with the hiring manager and it was very interesting to know more about the role and he also asking a couple of sql questions. I had another phone interview with the Engineer from the team who tested my skillset for identifying kpis in a web mining environment and other marketing questions. I received a mail for the onsite and it was with 5 different people from different team for whom I will have to work with if I join. The interview was very challenging. They asked various problems from data science, stats, sql, marketing analytics, google analytics, R and puzzles here and there. I also was called in for another onsite to meet few other team mates and the people/interviewers were very polite and approachable. That's one thing I have seen lacking in many interview processes. I think that's what made me perform better as I felt comfortable in the interview environment which is an important contributor to anyone's performance in a job interview. The recruiters were very helpful and prompt of updating me on the next steps.

    Manager Level Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at LiveCareer (San Francisco, CA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Initial communication was via LinkedIn, then I had a phone interview, followed by 3 visits to the office for face-to-face interviews. Then was told that I would hear back the next day. I didn't hear from them for 2.5 weeks. Not professional at all. If you weren't going to call - don't tell me you are. If you don't know an answer the next day - that's understandable - either don't tell me you're going to call or call and tell me you don't have an update. Follow through is critical. I'm selling you on my skills, but you're also selling me on the company. Not a good impression.

    Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at LiveCareer (San Francisco, CA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The team is seeking multiple roles - Product Mgr on Web and Mobile to build out their baseline product ResumeBuilder. The interview entailed: 1 HR Phone screener, 1 Group Interview with Sr. PM and HR, 1 Group Interview with Product and Program Mgmt Executives. The final round also included a homework assignment to plot out their Mobile Roadmap. The firm uses offshore engineering which places more emphasis on getting specs completely written out and makes the whole development less agile. Be prepared to stress that you are comfortable working in a slow environment. The role is probably more project management as you will be working with a Senior PM that has more control of the roadmap. The leadership team does not seem to take risks, and is maintaining the cash-cow product. Much of the monetization strategy relies on luring individuals into trials and renewing subscriptions at higher costs. The team does not seem too interested in working on ideas outside of resume creation.

    Overall interview process was good. Generally, they asked common questions from industry.

    The second round interviewer asked almost same oops based questions and few from WebDriver.
