    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sungevity (Chicago, IL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I had two interviews. The first interview was a short phone interview with a recruiter. The next interview was about a half hour interview with their head of human resources. Overall the experience was very positive. Both people were very friendly and willing to answer all of my questions. They asked about my previous work experience as well as other behavioral interview questions. Shortly after, about a day later, I was offered the position. Very quick turn around!

You should know the company's mission, have a basic understanding of their work culture, and be peppered to explain how you would fit in. They're a startup company so there's no need to wear a suit. Everyone was really nice

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sungevity (Oakland, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Sungevity hires really well - they look to ensure that you have the necessary (transferable) skills, have a passion for solar and for helping people and that culturally you'd make a good fit.

    I didn't get the feeling they were trying to ask me any "gotcha" questions, rather, they genuinely wanted to hear about my experience, background, interest and motivations.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sungevity (Oakland, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screening to understand background and basic qualifications. Came in for an interview which lasted about 45 minutes. No questions out of the ordinary. Did some customer service based role plays. At the time, I interviewed with the HR hiring director and the VP of sales - the process today has been adjusted (I am not quite sure what it is, though).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sungevity in January 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted the application and after that I didn't hear back from anyone for about three weeks. The application didn't have a point of contact for me to follow up with so I didn't know how to make sure my application was received. I connect with people on the HR team at Sungevity and was granted an interview and I got the position.
