    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Smart Meetings in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email requesting a phone interview. We scheduled an interview for Friday afternoon. Thirty minutes after my interview time, I still hadn't received a call. I sent an email to Luc following up about our scheduled call. He told me his previous call ran over and wanted to reschedule. We rescheduled for Monday. Again, I didn't receive a call. I sent another email to follow up and Luc said, "why didn't you initiate the call"? NEVER in my career and/or job hunt (over 15 years) have I ever been asked to call an interviewer especially when I wasn't asked to. After replying to his email, letting him know he didn't ask me to contact him, that he would be contacting me...I haven't heard a thing back from him.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Smart Meetings.

    Interview

    Had one initial phone interview. It was awkward and unprofessional where the interviewer mocked personal career goals and questioned my academic background in relation to this role. He clearly showed no interest in talking about the role or company or trying to sell the candidate in any way. Questions were basic and behavioral.

    Interview Questions

    • How does one go from (academic background here) to (current/recent work experience here)? Tell me about what you do now?   Answer Question

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Smart Meetings (Saucelito, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview, after applying for the executive assistant position. The interviewer instead mentioned multiple sales positions they have open, which I did not apply for. He even mocked my experience by stating I wasn't qualified for the EA position in which I originally applied for. Seems like they need to pay more attention because if I had applied for the sales positions he referred to I would have gone about the interview in a completely different way. And not to mention I am completely OVER qualified for the EA position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Smart Meetings (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was horrified to read other people's feedback but unfortunately all of this is true.

    I first had a phone interview that was super quick and a bit awkward, Interviewer didn't ask much questions, didn't seem very interested with my answers. Then went in for an in person interview. I arrived a bit early and as I was standing behind the door I could hear a lady yelling at her employees. I then entered the office trying to not let that intimidate me but I have to say it really didn't give a good impression nor seems professional. The dog does lick you forever while you are waiting and it doesn't seem to bother anyone.

    Interview was ok but same, interviewer didn't seem energetic or motivated. I was shocked to hear they are offering 50k for an Executive Assistant position (average is about 80-90k in the bay area).

    Finally I NEVER got any follow up.

    Definitely not a good impression.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Smart Meetings (Sausalito, CA).

    Interview

    It was a two step process of a phone interview followed by an in person. Very normal interview process. All smiles and an open outlooks of growth and happiness. They avoided directly answering the question of average tenure and attributed high turn over to growth of the company. The owners dog greets you at the door with loud barking and then follows you into the interview.

    Marketing Director Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Smart Meetings (Sausalito, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewing at Smart Meetings was the worst experience I've ever had. Their old-style environment (totally the opposite of how a Silicon Valley company should be) and the absence of professionalism of the interviewers are embarrassing and even depressing. Way below any decent standard of the area. During the interview, the interviewers used to step in and out of the room any seconds asking always the same questions not related to the job description. Also, they do not follow-up and they treat you with a sense of inferiority.
    All the team in general is very old and I do believe they stay there because they are so old that they do not have another place to go.

    Believe me, if you take good care of yourself, run as fast as you can from there, it is toxic.
