    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at MobileIron in June 2020.

    Interview

    Submitted resume/cover letter day 1 posted on Glassdoor. Executive Employee Referral also reached out to HR but I never heard from anyone. I reached out to VPHR who set up a phone interview 8 days out. 5 minutes before scheduled phone interview he sends this TEXT, 'sorry, job filled'

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MobileIron in March 2020.

    Interview

    My experience was like this: Stage 1, recruiter phone call, Stage 2, video call with hiring manager. Then a second senior recruiter called me to confirm the salary expectations and requirements. Stage 3, video call with four team members 30min each back to back, Stage 4, call with 2 senior team members, and the VP, 30 min each back to back. Recruiter was very difficult to speak to, had no benefits knowledge, and even responded that the my questions about the benefits were above their pay grade. They were argumentative and condescending. Their first offer was lower than the established salary range and their internal communication seems to be so muddled they could not sort it out between them.

    Engineering Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at MobileIron (Mountain View, CA) in February 2019.

    Interview

    To be fair, it was a quick turn around from the time I talked to the recruiter to the time I had a phone conversation with the hiring manager. But the phone interview experience is probably the worst of my whole life. The hiring manager didn't show any passion/enthusiastic about the conversation, went into a monologue, had a really bad attitude and behaved like the company is the best company in the world and he is really doing you a favor to have the conversation.

    I don't suggest anyone to apply the job there.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at MobileIron (Mountain View, CA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I was invited to HQ for onsite interview after phone screening.
    On site interview had 6 in person interviews. If I recall correctly, 4 of these interviews were technical. Reviewing security fundamentals before interview was the right thing to do. One thing that draw my attention was: Interview process was pretty well structured. Mobile Iron's recruiter Bryson was amazing! It was such a great and professional recruiter experience!

    phone and tech onsite. Has some good people and some disrepectful ones. One of my interviewers(higher mgmt) was particularly rude/un-interested. Not much you can do when your interviewers come with that kind of an attitude.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MobileIron (New York, NY) in October 2018.

    Interview

    In the first email the recruiter said it was for the designation of staff software engineer and in the invitation email which he sent one day before the interview date it mentioned the designation as senior Software Engineer.

    I replied to the email asking what areas each of the rounds focus on so I can be prepared, but I never received a response.

    There were 4 rounds, I made it till the 3rd round. The questions focused on design, database and lot of multithreading. When I told the recruiter I don't have much practical experience on multithreading he laughed, mocking at me and said "will you be able to answer my questions?"

    I lost interest right there and didn't want to continue.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MobileIron (Mountain View, CA) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter via LinkedIn. I had an offer from another high profile tech company back then. I wanted to try out my luck with Mobile Iron because their technology seemed interesting (enterprise cloud security) so I sent my resume to the recruiter. Recruiter pinged me back saying Hiring Mgr wants to bring me Onsite directly.

    *Onsite interview consisted of algorithms questions (not that difficult), they asked me about my work experience, etc.* Interview was for about 5 hours.

    Next day recruiter called me & said team is interested to make an offer but Mgr insisted that I would be a greater fit in a more challenging role so I was asked to interview in that team (Onsite interview that consisted of 2-2.5 hours). I had a talk with Hiring Mgr to understand th need for second interview, during the course of conversation Hiring Mgr insisted that "he felt work ethics in the high profile tech company I got an offer from, was really bad & also stated that he is not saying this because he likes me to work for them but as a general note" (remember his words while reading the next paragraph)

    After the interview (a day later), I tried contacting recruiter to check if there is any feedback, he mentioned that team is interested in hiring me for 1st position instead of the second position, to which I agreed.

    Next day recruiter came back & said Hiring Mgr decided to hire someone internally instead, so they are withdrawing their offer (which they even confirmed previous day).

    Thank god I was not foolish to drop my first offer based on my communication with this Hiring Mgr, it would have been a big blunder. This is a very bad interview experience.

    Ios Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MobileIron (Mountain View, CA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Reached out to recruiter on LinkedIn, who then setup a phone screen/coding session with the hiring manager. The hiring manager was very nice - the coding session went well. A day later, the recruiter called again to setup an onsite. The onsite included talking to 3 of their engineers, also with one of the VPs(ironically not with the hiring manager). The sessions with the engineers went fairly well - they were very nice and professional. The lunch session with the VP involved with him throwing random questions such as design a web server (I am an application developer! Not a web developer) - him eating lunch and working away on his laptop - while I was scribbling on the white board. I found that very disrespectful.

    An interview is not a one way assessment for companies to evaluate a prospective employee. It is also an opportunity for candidates to judge their future peers/bosses, to see if we are a right fit for this work environment. I would definitely have liked to meet with the hiring manager during the onsite. I understand VPs are busy jumping from one meeting to another - a 45 min session with the VP is unnecessary on the first round of onsite.
