    Relationship Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Broomfield, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Return Path (Broomfield, CO) in July 2016.

    Interview

    This was the longest interview process I've ever gone through. Prepare for the long haul! First, I had a phone screen with the recruiter. Then, a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then, an in-person interview with three people - two peers and one VP. Finally, I had to do a sales pitch via Google Hangouts with two people in sales management. The whole process was lengthy but I think by having such an intensive interview process, RP knew exactly what they would be getting if they hired me, and I knew exactly what I would be getting into if I accepted the offer. It was thorough, and at the time I kept wishing it was shorter and that I got an offer sooner, but in the long run, they do it the right way.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Return Path (Broomfield, CO).

    Interview

    Standard process. Phone interview by recruiter followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager and then on site for about 3 - 4 hours. Everybody I met were super friendly and the recruiter was pro active with timely responses and the whole interview coordination process was done in a smooth and timely manner.

    Front End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Return Path (Austin, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I received an invite for a coding challenge before even talking to a recruiter or anything - red flag.

    They provided a screenshot and asked me to implement it using Angular, React, or Vue. The screenshot was the only spec provided, they kept saying they wanted us to make our own unique solution. Not buying it, just laziness imo.

    It took about 4 hours to do the coding challenge, pretty standard and a fair amount of time. That said, again, this was the very first step, I had no chance to talk to a recruiter and learn about salary expectations, culture, etc.

    I received feedback about 2 months later basically saying my solution sucked because it didn't implement several features (which we're never mentioned, again, all I had was a static image) and there were no unit tests (this was never mentioned).

    I'm not trying to slam the company, they seem like nice people and did try to give positive feedback, but the hiring process needs a lot more effort on their end.

    Some genuine advice for the company: if you have a particular solution in mind, you need to give more direction. Also, allow candidates to do a phone screen first, it would save time on both ends. Finally, I get people are busy, but I could see there we're only 15 people invited to the challenge, two months for generic feedback is entirely too long.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Return Path.

    Interview

    Round one is a video phone screen with an engineering lead, which is the fairly standard discussion of skill set and what Return Path is looking for. I felt like my front-end skills were a good match, but the back-end stuff we went over sounded pretty antiquated. Round two is submitting some code to them that accomplishes a specific task with a given input set. The problem was really geared toward back-end development, which was a bit odd given that I applied for a front-end role. The specification stated this should be done in "in whatever language you are most comfortable with," but apparently that's not really true. They did not like my language choice (C#) and probably never looked at what I turned in because of that.

    Interview

    I applied in April for this posted job. Never heard back except for an auto-generated email. Figured they weren't interested. Then in July they emailed and asked if we could have a call. I agreed. The call went well. He indicated that I'd "hear back by the end of the week" but thought they'd bring me in for an on-site interview. Three weeks have gone by and no word. Even if they do finally call/email me back, I'm done. This is no way to treat someone you're thinking of hiring.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Return Path (Broomfield, CO) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Return Path really wants to make sure you're a great fit, both technically and culturally. I went through 4 interviews (3 phone and 1 in person), all of which had a technical component as well as a cultural component. They were definitely on the challenging side but never seemed to be insurmountable and didn't use any "gotcha" questions. Most questions seemed to be focused on getting the conversation going.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Return Path (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The process I went through was 7 weeks. I spoke with a woman on the phone initially who said she would like to move me forward. She then went on maternity leave and I thought they forgot about me. Approximately 13 days later, they reached out to do another phone interview. After that, I completed one more phone interview. I then went in and met 3 people face to face and took off an entire day of work from my current job to do so. I then did not hear back again for 2 weeks. I was then contacted to say I had moved to the final round, which was a mock sales pitch. I spoke on the phone for one hour to 6 panel members I then literally never heard a peep back. I waited 2 weeks...sent an email....another 2 weeks...sent an email. It has now been 10 months. No one even had the decency to tell me no.
