    Event Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Microdesk (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Lightning fast, straightforward interview process. I was so used to employers dragging their feet and not being responsive, that I was almost suspicious that this was too good to be true! I was literally contacted to schedule a phone screening the day after applying. I was contacted for a second phone interview with the hiring manager maybe a day after the first interview. Then only a day or so after that, I was scheduled for the in-person. My in-person interview was on a Friday, and I received an offer by Monday.

    I had never experienced anything like it. The initial phone screening was very fast, with what seemed like pre-planned questions. I almost thought they weren't interested in me, because it was so to-the-point, but I now realize that the recruiters at Microdesk are just busy and know what they're looking for. The second phone interview and the in-person with the hiring managers were more conversational, which makes sense because they were the ones I would actually work with.

    Even had I not gotten the job, I would still give this process 5 stars. They were very considerate of my time and quick with feedback. Do yourself a favor and apply!

    Recruiter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Microdesk (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied via LinkedIn and was quickly contacted by an external recruiter from a staffing agency for a phone screen. After our initial conversation I was passed over to the internal team and spoke with a Microdesk recruiter. It was a very straightforward conversation discussing my background and experience, as well as going over the role and the company. The next stage was a phone interview with the hiring manager (in this case the CEO), which was also a very quick conversation. After this call I was invited for an in person interview at the office in NYC with the CEO and also met with additional members of the organization (i.e. Director of Marketing).

    Overall, I was impressed by how quick and seamless their interview process was. I was constantly updated by both the internal and external recruiting teams and appreciated by their accessibility. Their hiring process is very indicative of the company culture and that made me feel very comfortable moving forward with them. Overall, one of the best recruitment experiences I have had.

    Director of Professional Services Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Approximately 45 minutes of typical internet interview questions. For the role, I was expecting something more, but it appeared that they might have been restructuring and the role seemed to be a moving target. The interview was delayed about 4 times with little to no notice. I had heard some negative things about Microdesk during my research, but on the surface I didn't really see anything atypical from a large company with a lot of moving pieces. I would recommend giving them a shot, and if your really interested in the company... make sure that your leading the follow-up efforts or you might get lost in the shuffle.

    Interview

    Hired by Recruiter that really did not know my exact role for this position. Thought I would be doing more consulting work but they have doing something Im just not comfortable with anymore. Typically normal interview questions were asked, nothing new there.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Microdesk in March 2014.

    Interview

    I actually got 2 interviews. A spur of the moment interview that was over the phone while walking home and then an in-person interview. The spur of the moment interview was pretty good, since it really didn't allow you to prepare at all so when you answered the question it was truly with honest answers. The in-person interview was the typical questions like "Why do you want to work at Microdesk?" "What programs do you know?" "Do you believe you are a good teacher?" All questions that truly relate to the job. As long as you come in with a positive demeanor and you seem very outgoing, can speak (It is a consulting position), and know some programs you will be a good fit.
