    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ghent (Belgium)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Showpad (Ghent (Belgium)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online for an internship at Showpad and was then invited for a short interview by phone. Only at the end of the interview, I was told that it was not possible to do an internship without being enrolled at a university, which I thought was a shame. Therefore, the solicitation process ended there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Showpad.

    Interview

    Process was really long several weeks. 2 interviews over skype, one in person. At the end no response, no feedback. I didn't feel respected after this amount of engagement. I like they actually checked and discussed my previous projects.

    Solutions Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Showpad (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Phone screening with HR. Then I spoke with the hiring manager who probably thinks he is the smartest person in the world as he sounded extremely arrogant. In addition, he didn't listen or paid attention to what I was saying: I walked him through my background and talked about my 2-year experience as a technical Pre-Sales. Right after that, the Hiring manager asks me if I have any experience in Pre-Sales.... So that gives you an idea of the type of company/team . I couldnt work with a person like that. They email me 2 WEEKS LATER to ask me to meet with the team. I said no.

    Solutions Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Showpad (London, England (UK)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Quite a straight forward process and the recruiter was hands-on and clear from the beginning.

    I reached the final stage with CRO and had a final webex call with him but I kind suspected he is looking for quite specific attributes within the candidates and I won't be the best fit for them.

    I was informed that you are moving with another candidate more experienced within this exact field.

    1.HR screening via the web
    2. Hiring manager call
    3. Onsite interview at the office and another call with the Sales Manager
    4. Call with CRO and MD

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brussels (Belgium)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Showpad (Brussels (Belgium)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was going to be handled by a recruiter out of Belgium in the early morning in the US. I have nothing against this, but the job was located in Chicago, and the interview time slots were design for Europe. Besides early morning, the times don't align with most of the candidates in the region unless they are night owls, or don't have a typical 8-5 job. Lets be real, most companies want you to have a job already, and you can't just take a video interview at 2 am, and even in early morning is challenging since you still have work unless you take off. Who wants to use their vacation days for a preliminary interview? Get a grip and be realistic.

    That said, the interview wasn't hard, but it was cut short since they wanted someone with more "shipping experience." They couldn't explain it, but basically they need a guy to hit the ground running by March. Ironically they keep posting the job since I guess they can't find a guy with enough "shipping experience," and it's basically April now. What does that say to me and others? They are basically too picky, and they lied if they are desperate to get someone when 3 months later the role isn't fulfilled by the deadline they mention. That's unprofessional, let alone the circumstances how they want to handle the interview.

    Furthermore, if they are having issues finding someone, be realistic how you approach candidates. I understand some skills are necessary, but instead of wasting more time and losing productivity they could have brought someone and have them trained by now. The recruiter talked about transparency, and it's transparent they have unrealistic expectations.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Showpad (Ghent (Belgium)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Ik kwam online een advertentie tegen voor Showpad en had er op gesolliciteerd. Daarna kreeg ik een email en werd uitgenodigd voor een telefoon gesprek. Vervolgens dus eerst het telefoongesprek, daarna wordt er gekeken of je langs mag komen voor een echt interview. Er wordt dan ook een role play gedaan en een meeting met de CEO's.

    Junior Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Showpad (Ghent (Belgium)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Na het toesturen van mijn cv, werd ik opgebeld door de rekruteringsmanager. Het telefonisch gesprek duurde +/- een half uur. Hoewel de vragen relevant waren, was de houding echter naar het arrogante toe. Toen ik na het gesprek feedback vroeg, wouden ze dit niet meteen geven maar heb ik achteraf ook geen reactie meer gehoord.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Showpad (Ghent (Belgium)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the job of Customer Success Coach and within days I had a call with the team manager, followed by a roleplay with one of the colleagues. Next step was a personal interview at the office with several people and finally I had a call with the VP Customers For Life in San Fransisco.

    Great to see that you are screened by many different people, I was impressed on how important a cultural fit is to Showpad.
