    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sumo Logic (Redwood City, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was great! Offer letter in hand exactly 7 days from my very first phone interview with the recruiter. The process was quick and simple. So great that I have already referred a previous coworker.

    Corporate Sales Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sumo Logic (Redwood City, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Initial contact was with recruiter via Linkedin. Had a call with him to discuss position and then an initial interview over the phone with a regional manager the next day. After that, I had a 3 part interview onsite later that week. First with a peer, second with SE management, and finally with another regional sales manager. Each took about half an hour. Very straightforward process requiring critical thinking and self assessment, but nothing outside the peel. Finally had to present their product to a sales director via gotomeeting. This may seem a bit daunting, but keep in mind they are not looking for perfection. What they really want is a mix of product comprehension and a sign that you know what you're doing when running a meeting. A little creativity doesn't hurt. I received an offer the same day and accepted.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sumo Logic (Redwood City, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I scheduled a call with the Corporate Sales Director. He called me and we discussed my basic background and experience and he asked why I wanted to work at Sumo Logic. He then brought me in for an in-person interview. During that interview I met with the two managers of my team. They had different techniques, asking about my experience but mainly asking me why I thought I would be a good fit. Then I met with the VP of Sales a few days later and received a job offer the next week.

    Corporate Sales Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sumo Logic (Redwood City, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process at Sumo Logic was one of the fastest and most efficient interview process that I have ever been through. First call with the recruiter was about a 20 min high level call. I didn't know much about the company so the rep provided a lot of compelling information and references for me to research the company. Second call with one of the hiring managers was about 30 minutes. A down to earth, get to know each other type call. My experience and the company culture fit was on target. Next was a 3 part on-site interview with a current CSM, supporting SE and another hiring manager. Each interview was 1-on-1 for about 30 minutes. The interviewers were very helpful in describing the culture and day to day activity around the position applying for. Interviewers were open and honest and I got a good feel for the attitude and personalities in the office. I was drawn to the high energy and fast paced attitude. Questions were very thoroughly designed to dig into what makes me who I am as a sales rep at my core. It was a very welcoming and comfortable setting. The last step was a GoToMeeting! where I gave a 30 min presentation to the Director and VP of Global Sales followed by a Q and A for about 15 minutes. Feedback I got from the leadership was very consistent with previous interviewers. It is clear that everyone in the sales org at Sumo Logic is running as a tight knit team with a unified message. I received a verbal offer about 4 hours later and the final offer came the following morning.

    Corporate Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Sumo Logic (San Mateo, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I was recruited via LinkedIn for this position. As I was actually looking to get into this field and my internship at another company was ending, I proceeded with the process. The phone interview with the recruiter went very well, as did the next phone interview with the hiring manager. However, when I arrived for the in person interview, the Sales Manager seemed for interested in the vacation he just got back from. He seemed tired and bothered. He had unprofessional habits. They didn't even reserve a room for me. The first 15 minutes he was running around their office trying to find an open room. After the interview, I followed up for about 3 weeks with absolutely no response. The sales manager and hiring manager both were unresponsive. The recruiter finally told me that they went in a different direction. I asked for feedback and they had absolutely none. Terrible! Advise: go with Splunk

    Leadership Role Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sumo Logic (Redwood City, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I went to my first interview feeling like the role I was applying for and the stage of the company might not be the right fit . Met with all leadership and colleagues I would interact with. Smart, engaged and passionate about the vision of the company and what they do. Questions were simple to intense. They do their due diligence to ensure you are qualified for the role and most importantly, fit within the culture. Very deep bench of experience for a young company. Without a doubt, the most respectful and engaging interview process I've been a part of. Although they are a late stage start up, their process is better than most established companies. They wowed me, and by the time it was all over, it was the place for me. I'm excited to see how this company disrupts the industry.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sumo Logic.

    Interview

    The recruiter set it up pretty well. I went for a 2 hour onsite first level screening at their redwood city offices. There were two interviews of 1 hour each. Each interview consisted of going over some of the interesting work that I have done and one data structure question. The first interviewer was yawning and I saw many times that he dozed off while I was talking. He asked me standard BST checking to code and at the end said great since I was able to write the code without any bugs. Second interviewer was a chinese guy and I was unable to understand why he was talking to me. He was constantly telling he why i may not be a good fit blah blah...was a pathetic experience for me.
