    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Seiler (Redwood City, CA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Screening phone interview with their HR Director. Very smooth interview. I was 110% honest about everything. No embellishing. And this resonated well with the HR Director. It felt very natural and easy. None of those threatening open ended questions drawn up by behavioral scientists. Very refreshing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Seiler in November 2013.

    Interview

    I received a prescreen interview with a recruiter and he set up the interview. Interviewed by one partner and two senior managers. The partner is one that will interview you last and two senior managers before had. They all asked questions separately about 30 min to an hour each. Most of the questions were in my opinion personality fit questions, not too many technical questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Seiler (Redwood City, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The first step of the interview process was a phone conversation with a recruiter that lasted around 15-20min. He asked questions from my resume and of my previous experience. Then, I was invited to have four back-to-back 30min session interviews with five core individuals from their team. Each interviewee was very professional and asked great questions. They also had great responses to the questions I had prepared.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Phone interview with the recruiter. Ask me about my background and one behavior question. I was interrupted several times while I was speaking. The tone of the recruiter is very judging and arrogant. I asked one question but the recruiter seems not interested at all. I have interviewed a lot of companies but rarely see someone who is that rude.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Seiler (Redwood City, CA) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Very easy interview. The only thing that they really care is if you can do overtime during their tax season. You will be interviewed by two current employees, and they will mainly let you introduce yourself and go over the resume,
