I applied through an employee referral The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at SmartRecruiters

Interview

It was a long and average process, nothing crazy but also some steps were definitely not necessary. The recruiter and hiring manager were lovely and very warm to talk to. The requirements in the interviews were very ordinary.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SmartRecruiters in Mar 2022

Interview

They led me on for 5 rounds, to only tell me that they were going to give me the offer on Friday, but moved the interview to Tuesday because the hiring manager got sick. Then on Tuesday, they told me they couldn't meet my expectations and moved the job location to EUROPE (i interviewed for SF), and already hired someone.

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at SmartRecruiters

Interview

The interview process is good organized and is divided into several stages. At the second stage they ask technical questions. Also they provide a detailed feedback at the end showing what was good and what was not so good.

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at SmartRecruiters

Interview

I was referred to SmartRecruiters for the product management team. They had several positions open in the team and my background and experience was a great fit. I met with 5 different people in the org and had excellent discussion and interviews with all of them. However, after each interview there was silence. I had to reach out and inquire about next steps. It took 6 weeks to get through 5 interviews. After the interviews were completed, HR informed me verbally that an offer was forthcoming. Again no new for several days. Then I was asked to meet with yet another person. This person came 5 minutes late to a 25 minute interview, wore a mask because they were at a coworking space, and seemed completely disinterested. After that interview, I never heard from anyone again. I didnt follow up because the last interview soured me on the company culture. Considering that they are a recruiting company, their recruiting practices could use a lot of help.

I interviewed at SmartRecruiters

Interview

Had an initial zoom interview with hiring manager to discuss my background, which went well and was standard. However, after an email exchange regarding compensation, benefits, etc I never heard back. Even after two follow up emails expressing excitement and next steps, the hiring manager didn’t have the respect to respond once. Wouldn’t recommend!

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SmartRecruiters (Berlin) in Nov 2021

Interview

The interview process was one of the worst I have ever gone through, it was poorly prepared, I had to go through 5 different interviews some of which took around 2 hours, very stressful experience, and poorly prepared interviewers. Some interviewers were noce some other were very difficult to communicate with. They said that they will send me a form for feedback but that didn't happen

Interview Questions

Super straight forward. Great people! Did not take this role but the process was not too complex. Got to meet with a ton of execs. Great to see a company collaborate (supports their product too).

Application

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SmartRecruiters (New York, NY) in Oct 2021

Interview

I had a total of 3 interviews. First with the VP, Head of Global Pre-Sales that went exceptionally well, we discussed my qualifications & how it related to the role. What the expectations are as well as the future of the role & its place in product development. My 2nd interview was the Demo Innovation Director which also went well our conversation mimicked my 1st interview. Then was my 3rd interview with the Regional Director, Pre-Sales his questions were again similar to my 2 previous interviews. He did ask what I thought could be improved on with the current product since I was familiar with it & I gave my thoughts. I didn’t give to many as I didn’t want to make it seem as though I only saw flaws. However after all that apparently my final interviewer didn’t think I had “the experience needed to tell the story they needed to convey to clients” & because the VP, Head of Global Pre-Sales & Demo Innovation Director were new hires they didn’t really know what type of candidate was needed for the role. In 1 stroke the Regional Director, Pre-Sales insulted his colleagues & doubted their abilities as well as mine. No matter what I thought before clearly this is not the organization I want to work for. I feel I dodged a bullet, definitely will not think to apply to any other roles either.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at SmartRecruiters (Berlin) in Sep 2021

Interview

I got referred by a super talented collegue, I had the first call with the team lead where they told me about the role then the second interview was reshceduled and I thought they are not interested to interview me anymore so I followed up. We had another behavioural based interview. What happened next, I never got a response. I know recruiters could forget to feedback but was super surprised they are proud of the Hiring Success book, where the candidate experience is a key :)
