    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I was referred by a current employee and received an initial phone interview that lasted about 30 minutes. Was then asked to come into the office to interview with 3 different people from the team. Moved onto the next step which was interviewing with 2 more people from the team. Then was interviewed by the VP of the department over the phone (would've rather come in for a face-to-face interview). Then was emailed 3 days later that I wasn't selected.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked a lot about project management processes and how I handled issues or difficulties with client projects and team members.   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rise Interactive.

    Interview

    I found the job on LinkedIn and applied. The next day I was contacted about taking an analytical test. You have two tries to get to 80%. It is not difficult. I passed on a Saturday and was contacted on Monday about an interview with an internal HR person. A few days later I went into the office for four interviews. They offered me the job the next day.

    Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rise Interactive.

    Interview

    Quick and fast. The majority of the interview process is a test resembling a SAT test. It brings me back to college days doing calculus on online submission forms. The questions are repetitive and the system unforgiven with decimal points. Rise brags this is a great tool to find great hires, but really it didn't really do anything other than be large annoying part of the process which is providing no value to them as a company. Considering fixing your test to be more industry specific and less clunky with the answers.

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Was reached out to by a recruiter on LinkedIn, then had a phone interview with the hiring manager, then had to complete an online application and a Sales skill assessment online, then an in-person with the same hiring manager, and two other middle managers.

    The job description changed from person to person, which was alarming. Nobody I talked to seemed to really know exactly what was going on, aside from one middle manager who was very friendly and very sharp.

    Also, I found out that this is a new team they are building out, which excited me at first. I went home and read a lot of Glassdoor reviews on Rise and was turned off, as a lot of the recurring elements of the negative interviews were all things I noticed during my ~2 hours spent at their facility. One of the managers was very well-spoken and seemed very knowledgeable on digital marketing, but the others I met with didn't seem to know what was going on. They couldn't really articulate to me what their company actually does, and what they're looking to do, which rang some alarms in my head.

    The organization seemed very chaotic and disorganized. The office looks beautiful. Everyone walking around was dressed very casual, which definitely caught me off guard. I was greeted at the door by a recruiter wearing a soccer jersey, not the same recruiter I did the phone screens or the initial conversations with.

    I thought the interviews went well and was expecting an offer. I got the "thanks, but no thanks" e-mail the following day, from the recruiter who originally reached out to me. She was cordial but seemed cold and unfriendly throughout the process. I responded back and asked what I could have done better, but no response. Oh well! I got a lot of good information on digital marketing from the one very sharp manager I met and have been reading up on the industry in my down time, so it wasn't a total loss.

    Interview Questions

    • Boilerplate questions about my approach to prospecting, how I stay organized, yadda yadda.   1 Answer

    Director, IT Operations Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Started with a call from an internal recruiter. This was followed by a call the next day with the hiring manager. From there a 4 hour interview onsite with various technical team members and leaders.

    I was impressed by the good vibes that were buzzing around the office. The people that met were all very smart and excited about the company and the products they are creating. Anyone who gets to work with a dedicated group like this one seemingly has a great opportunity to succeed.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really stands out, it was more of a management style and technical exposure set of conversations. I did not feel like I was being interviewed as much as I felt like I was having moderate technical conversations with stakeholders.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First a phone call with the recruiter that was very basic. Then a scheduled phone interview with the hiring manager. Then was scheduled for an in-person interview. Met with a total of seven people (including the hiring manager that did the phone interview). The people doing the interview did not coordinate or seem very well prepared as I was asked the same questions over and over. That was a red flag. They all seemed very stressed and exhausted. Lastly with about 50 minutes left in the interview was given 2 exercises to complete. One was you are given an actual user story of theirs that was a whole page long (way too long for a user story, should have been broken into smaller stories) then asked to write a test plan/test cases/a check list/how would you test. Then given some blank paper to hand write it out. Second was given another paper with their database table structure (photocopy that was difficult to read) and asked to write 5 SQL queries. One again just some blank paper and a pen. I don't mind the assessment, but please (as a tech company) give candidates the proper tools of a computer/laptop. It seems that they expect employees to sit and hand write SQL queries and test plans in a minimal amount of time. I am sure most people can type a lot faster. Lastly, after that they do not even go over the exercises with you to discuss your answers/thought process. They just rush you out as they seem so stressed and overworked.

    Interview Questions

    • Given paper with about six tables and asked to write SQL queries to find revenue, campaigns, search engines, etc.   Answer Question
