    Interview

    Phone interview with HR recruiter and in person with hiring manager. Other individual was not available to interview, so it ended up as a one on one interview. Both were friendly and professional. Follow up communication over emails.

    Security Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Solutionary (Atlanta, GA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied but I don't recall where, I think on their site. Called by an internal recruiter and we talked about the position. They promised to setup a initial call with someone relevant to the position.

    After getting back to me, BEFORE THE CALL, I was asked via e-mail to fill out an online application, which I already did, and sign an NDA, which seems odd.

    Neither of which bothered me but they also sent me a web based personality assessment of some kind from Predictive Index. That struck me as incredibly unprofessional and I declined. Sending someone something like that is something you need to explain and soft sell and to do so before a real conversation has even taken place smacks of a power move. It's also a tool that you don't see many top tier companies use to evaluate IT engineering positions.

    I can't imagine why anyone in my field would even fill one out. There are so many jobs out there that there is really no reason to put up with something so impersonal and questionable. It does make sense though when you read the actual company reviews on glassdoor. It's clear that they have no idea how to hire or retain IT engineering talent so they have resorted to sending out personality assessments. It sounds like a way to get a crop of thoroughly average people.

    I was interested in Solutionary but on the fence. That e-mail knocked me off the fence.

    Cyber Security Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Solutionary (Omaha, NE) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very quick process once the ball got rolling. The company is very laid back and they do really well to make you feel comfortable in something that can be nerve-wracking. In just a few minutes, I felt like I was talking to a really good friend, which helped out the process a lot. The first interview is by phone, and they ask you some technical questions to gauge your knowledge. The face to face interview is done by two people and both ask you questions from the general work knowledge to more technical questions.

    Marketing Automation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Solutionary (Omaha, NE) in May 2013.

    Interview

    HR called, did a basic interview, sounded kind of bored with the whole process. He then sent me an online application, which is stupid, since they already had my resume and full work history. This is classic HR nonsense, they always want to fit everyone into the same boxes. Anyway, also had me fill out this ridiculous personality profile test. Really? You put stock in those crackpot things?
    Then, although I am overqualified for what they need, I never got a call from the hiring manager. He was probably afraid that I am more qualified than he is. Oh well your loss!
