    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SDL.

    Interview

    The recruiter and I had a telephone discussion, which lasted past the planned 30 minute discussion. He was highly competent, well informed, professional and thorough. Mike asked insightful questions and represented SDL exceptionally well. In short, it was an exceptional two-way discussion about SDL, the position and my candidacy. This was the first of several meetings. Great experience.

    Enterprise Sales Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SDL in May 2018.

    Interview

    Was scheduled to have a phone screen from HR. I received an email after I applied within 2 days, I then replied with a few days and times that would work. I didn't hear anything from this individual for almost a week, then finally replied with a day and time the following which did work for me. I was waiting for the phone screen...and kept waiting and waiting. The HR contact never called me for the time that we had scheduled. I followed up with two emails the past week and a half and still no response, no update, no apology for completely wasting my time.

    I take this as a b;essing in disguise however and saving me the time with interviewing with a company that already shows complete incompetence. Thanks for not following up HR, I just qualified you and think I'll pass on the position

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SDL (Denver, CO) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The initial interview took place on the phone with an internal recruiter who had found me on LinkedIn. The interviewer was knowledgeable and professional. Knew a lot about the company and the industry. Then, I interviewed with the hiring manager. This person was less professional than the recruiter and a bit more curt. My background was not an exact match for the position (niche within industry), though I have a lot of industry-specific experience. The hiring manager seemed to focus on my reply to one question even though seemed happy with my overall experience. This is from feedback I received from the recruiter who seemed a bit frustrated at trying to find the right candidate for this job (we work in a niche industry and it can be challenging to find people with experience in our specific industry). Also, the pay was a bit below what I was looking for.

    Business Development Representative Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SDL (Woodridge, IL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online. Heard back about setting up a 30 minute interview. I planned it with the head of talent acquisition, which he did not even show up. No email explanation as to why. I had to move around my work schedule. So I emailed about the call and he never said anything. This company is rude, don’t expect them to call when they set up time with you.

    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SDL in March 2017.

    Interview

    Talked to the recruiter and got a phone interview with the hiring manager. Great call with the manager and then nothing. Four weeks later and neither the recruiter or hiring manager will respond to let me know either way on the status of future interviews or where the position stands. At least respond either way. Very disappointed and if this is the first impression then working there can't be that great.

    Interview Questions

    • Really no formal questions asked of my experience, more information on the position from their side.   Answer Question
