    Supply Planner Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Speck (San Mateo, CA).

    Interview

    Phone call interview and in person interview with possibility of second in person interview if progressing through the process. My personal experience was that the recruiter was very friendly and kept me updated throughout the process but actually visiting the Speck office and interviewing with the various managers was cause for concern. My in person interview was very informative. Speck was going through a lot of changes at the time and it was clear at the office. The front office that greeted you was inundated with a mess of packages. Nearly everyone who interviewed me had less than a year at Speck with the exception of one person who had been there for over a year. They were very transparent about the challenges they currently face and asked questions in regards to how the person who got this position would handle it. After being kept in the loop for over a month I was informed that they ended up proceeding with someone else. Overall with my whole experience it didn't seem like a stable place to be at.

    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Speck.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview process. I initially submitted my application online and a recruiter emailed me for a phone screen about a week later. After the phone screen, I had a call with the hiring manager and the questions were pretty standard. (Why do you want to work at Speck? What makes you a good fit for the position? What technical skills can you apply to this role? Are you able to work as an individual and as part of a team?) The call went well and then I was asked to visit HQ and meet with the team. I met one-on-one with all of them and they asked a few questions about my qualifications, but mainly ignored my resume and seemed to be more interested in finding a cultural fit.

    The whole process took a few weeks and the hourly rate was higher than expected.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palo Alto, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Speck (Palo Alto, CA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online.
    Contacted by Recruiter and talked briefly about experience and job position.
    On-site 1:1 interview with a Hiring Manager and HR Manager. Both of the interviews were very open/informal, with no specific format or questions... mainly diving deeper into resume/experience and more in-depth into job position.
    Advancement would have required a second on-site interview

    Office Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Speck.

    Interview

    The initial screening involved speaking with the company's corporate recruiter. I then interviewed with the head of HR and the company's HR generalist. The process was a bit unorganized and I had to instigate a lot of the communication.

    However, the HR team was very friendly, and the interview was very casual and conversational. They did most of the talking and didn't ask too many questions.
