    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Polycom (San Jose, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I was very excited about the opportunity at Polycom, as I had heard many positive things, too bad the application/interview process is so broken. I applied for the position online, then checked my contacts on LinkedIn. I was very excited to find I was 1st level connection with a senior leader in the company within the group the position was posted. I reached out to her via LinkedIn with my resume, and a note about my background and interest. The leader replied quickly via LinkedIn with the name of the leader directly handling the position along with a note she would send my resume and have this other leader contact me. I also reached our directly to this other leader as I had her email address. Very disappointing that despite an email from her direct manager and my email the person recruiting for the position did not feel it was necessary to advise me the candidate there was no interest.

    Senior Staff Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Polycom in July 2017.

    Interview

    Basic HR screening phone call and then an initial 30 minute technical screen with an engineer. I'm pretty sure I frustrated the interviewer because I had to ask him to repeat several questions, some multiple times, because of his heavy accent. there was no feedback after the phone screen.

    Digital Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Polycom in February 2016.

    Interview

    Started out with an introductory phone call with HR, followed by a phone call with a senior marketing director. Next, there were four separate interviews with individuals within marketing. Things took place rather quickly.

    But then everything went silent for multiple weeks. After a standard follow-up thank you email, I was told that I should hear back within a few days. It wasn't until another two leeks later when I received the canned / generic / robotic denial email.
