    Web Developer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at SmartFile (Indianapolis, IN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Starting out I met with the manager that conducted the phone screen. After exchanging greetings we went into a room and the interview began. We talked for a little bit and I could tell the manager was trying to figure out if I would be a good fit for the team. The manager was very up front about the interview process and said there were going to be several parts of interview going through a few different people. After we finished the 'Do you have any questions', the manager left the room and one of the employees of the company joined me and the meeting room and the technical part of the interview began. The questions were primarily about javascript with a mix of generic computer science questions referring to complexity or process, nothing too crazy. There were two more people that met me and were, again, more culture fit based interviews than anything else. After those the manager came back in and asked if I had anymore questions. After my last few questions the interview was over. We shook hands and said our goodbyes and the manager let me know that they would contact me the following week.

    Front End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SmartFile (Indianapolis, IN) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was a little different from the norm. There was a basic phone screen and then an in person interview. Most of the time was spent having me ask them questions rather than the other way around. The technical screen was pretty simple. The toughest question was a very basic javascript question "What is a anonymous function in javascript?"

    The absolute worst experience I've ever had in an interview came when I meet the CEO. Right away without actually engaging in any conversation told me that he thought I didn't deserve to work there. Most of the time he was basically accusing me of lying. He didn't care what the other guys interview with said or if I passed the technical questions cause he felt I was lying and that there are hundreds of people he could hire that would be far better. Even though I was told in the technical part I was one of the only candidates to be able answer a basic JavaScript question correctly. The CEO asked me why I got into IT and why I want to work there, before I could even get a word out he immediately said that I was not going to give an honest answer anyways so he doesn't care what I had to say. Then proceeded to pretty much tell me why I'm a loser and why I'm not good enough to work there. For the most part didn't bother to have a convo with me and when he did ask me a question he would just immediately cut me off. He was absolutely one of the most unprofessional, disrespectful, and unstable individuals I've ever meet. It's ridiculous for anyone to act like that but extremely frustrating when I was wasting my time while other companies already had an offer or interest.

    Office Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SmartFile (Indianapolis, IN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process started with an email to request a phone interview. The phone interview was the most comfortable interview I've ever had. A detailed explanation of the company was given and questions were asked about what I'm looking for. I had another phone call and I asked more questions and was given the opportunity for a face to face interview. This interview was also very comfortable and a good experience. I spoke with three different team members who were explaining their roles and what they need from this position. Everyone was very friendly and it really gives the opportunity to see if you fit in with everyone and if you will like the environment. It may seem overwhelming to meet with so many people but, for me, I liked getting to know the people I would potentially work with.

    Digital Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SmartFile (Indianapolis, IN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed up by an on-site interview. It took a few weeks from start to finish. On site I met with the hiring manager followed up by the CEO, VP of Sales and Director of Client Services (individually). It was more of a conversation about each question they asked (aka they asked, I answered, I asked a follow up, etc...), including thoughts on execution and strategy. It's clear they are passionate about who they hire and how to create a superior product for their customers. I thought it was a smooth process overall and engaging.

    There wasn't anything negative about the experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at SmartFile (Indianapolis, IN) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied and was contacted by the super friendly office manager to set up a phone interview. I was then asked to submit a writing sample. After that, I went in for an in-person interview where I talked with three people I'd be working with, the Digital Marketing Manager, the Creative Director and the Director of Sales. The interview took a little over 3 hours. We talked about my experience and they discussed the vision of the company as well as helped me understand what they did. They seemed to really care about getting a good fit, which is why they took such pains to explain it. A few days later, I got a call from the CEO and he gave a holistic view of the company and the vision and we also talked about my experience.
