    Junior Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Real-Time Innovations (San Jose, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was very thorough and done very well. I spoke with every one at each level from the accountants (who I'd be working with) to the VP of Operations. All the interviewers were super friendly and I could feel that they really stress the importance of keeping a solid company culture. Each separate interview was about 45 minutes and the whole process took about a normal work day. I remember leaving the interview hoping I would get a call back for a job offer because I loved everything about what RTI was doing.

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Real-Time Innovations (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    RTI is one of those companies that's on a mission to change the world...literally.

    When I saw the opening for this position I knew I wanted to have shot with the company, so I applied. A person on the recruiting team reached out to me for a phone interview, I did well, and was invited to come onsite. The onsite interview was standard but also very informational. Laptop were used to capture notes, which I thought was different than most companies I interviewed with. Despite this, the interviewers had no problem connecting with me. I left knowing the culture of the company and a little bit of what they do. I was even more excited about the opportunity.

    A week later, I was offered the position and I had no hesitation choosing RTI as my long term employer!

    Senior Human Resources Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Real-Time Innovations (Sunnyvale, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The whole process was very robotic , old school and uncomfortable. I had one phone interview with HM and then was brought in a few days later to meet the team (waste of 4 hours). When I arrived, I had to dial an extension (no receptionist) to let me in. They printed a paper application for me to fill out, which I refused as I already filled an online application out. I almost ran after I saw this, but looked at it as an area I can provide recommendations for improvement. There was no natural dialogue among the interviewers. Computers up whole time in front of their face taking notes, and some were even unprepared as they had not reviewed my resume beforehand (which they actually said to me). I have interviewed successfully at several organizations and this was the worst interview experience I have had. Please train your interviewers and HR team to think outside the box. The dept will only evolve with new perspectives. You need more senior professionals to build some basic foundations and build capabilities of your employees.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you stay organized, how do you multitask? (How is this relevant to a senior professional role?) Why should we hire you? (Pointless question. If you don't have a feel for how I can add value by the end of our hour together, and you have to ask, then this clearly isn't a match. I can say that they probably bing'd (not even googled) old school interview questions with no purpose. Def not for culture purposes. Let's focus on experiences, solving problems, projects, strategic value add - not organization/multitask skills.   1 Answer

    Operations Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Real-Time Innovations (Sunnyvale, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and the next day, the hr representative contacted me to set up an phone interview with the hiring manager. I then did a 30-45 minute phone interview with the hiring manager and the a couple days later, was invited to come onsite for a full day of interviews. They like to finish the interview process in 1 onsite round which is great because a decision can be made sooner than later and eliminates 5 plus interview rounds. The onsite interviews that I had at their Sunnyvale office was great. Everyone I met was friendly, knowledgeable, and I left the interview feeling that this is the company for me. A day after the interviews, the hiring manager called me to let me know feedback was positive and that reference checks were next. The end result, after references were completed, I was given an offer.

    Field Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Real-Time Innovations (Palo Alto, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Sent them a resume, they called me. I spoke with a Vice President of Field Engineering for over an hour, then spoke with an engineer for over an hour. The questions were open-ended and not well formed. I clearly understand their product and how it is useful, but this did not seem to be important. The interview process was not very impressive.

    Interview Questions

    • Implement a highly scalable streaming audio and video server/client system. Also, implement memcpy().   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I have not been sent feedback based on the interview yet. The interview process is not yet complete. There is no way to select this as a status.

    Software Engineer, Summer 2016 Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Real-Time Innovations (Sunnyvale, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Got an email from one of their senior devs. Had one and only one technical Skype screen and done. This interview was filled with surprise. The interview questions were surprisingly easy but I was required to code in C (C++ is also fine so I chose that since I am better at C++). Another surprising thing is that one of the interviewers was from my University (yes they had two interviewers on Skype with me for this interview). Third surprise is that even though the question is so easy, the so called "senior dev" was not able to figure out whether my solution is correct or not. Maybe he hasn't touched these materials for a long time and in that case it is understandable. I think the questions will be a lot more difficult for a formal SDE position though. After two months of wait, I was told that although I did well on the interview, they lowered their head count and ran out of positions so eventually I was rejected.
