    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Softheon in October 2016.

    Interview

    Initially I was asked to interview by phone, and my recruiter was super friendly. It was a quick and easy conversation, and she asked me to submit a few sentences to her afterwards bragging about myself and specifying why I would be the best fit for the job. I was then asked on an in-person interview, in which I interviewed with HR, and members of the marketing and sales teams in one group setting. It was a little intimidating and I really did have to sell my knowledge of what the job entails, but I was prepared and as long as you are too you'll be fine. I was then asked on a second interview where I met with who would be my direct manager and another member of the team. It went well, and a few hours later I was emailed an offer! I really enjoyed the ease of communication throughout the process. I was never left waiting long for a response and everyone was so friendly.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was asked what the salary range I was looking for was, and I was honest about what I was currently making and asked that I just make the same. Salary was never truly discussed until it was written in my offer so I suppose they were okay with what I suggested!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Softheon (Stony Brook, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    After applying, I was contacted to take a brief pre-screening over the phone. A few days later I was invited to interview in person in front of a panel of three individuals. This interview occurred about a week after the initial contact. The interview was about an hour long, and consisted of an explanation of the position, as well as a considerable investigation into my experience and personal/professional qualities. I had a pleasant time and was treated kindly as their guest. The atmosphere was comfortable and honest. After the interview, I was given a Predictive Index (personality quiz) to complete. Approximately two months later, I was given a rejection in e-mail, relaying that my qualifications do not match their current needs. At the least, I view this as considerate and respectful, as I have been rejected with utter silence elsewhere along my job hunt. As I was treated so courteously along the interview process, I consider the experience to be a positive one. It is always good to get more interviewing experience, and I believe "battles are lost in the same spirit in which they are won."

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Softheon.

    Interview

    Prepare for w very strange interview with the CEO. He pretty much told me from the very beginning that I wasn't getting the job. He then asked me to read Glassdoor reviews, and try to identify the "enemies" who were "lying" about him and his company. I am sure he might be reading this review right now. If you are, please don't act like you are either a mysterious genius or an innovator under attack by people trying to destroy your company. It was the strangest interview I ever had. I was very happy not to even get a call back for the job. Everyone else I met with was very nice but the CEO is a little paranoid to say the least. I hope you read this and rethink how you treat potential employees.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Softheon.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview then led to an in person interview. That was conducted with hr followed by two senior level managers. All seemed to be going well as I was called back to meet with the CEO. He questioned my response to every question and felt the need to "break things down for me" as if I didn't understand the position I was applying for.
