    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sunrun in November 2020.

    Interview

    Was contacted off LinkedIn by recruiter - I wasn't even looking for a job. Position sounded intriguing so met with key leader on first virtual interview and was well-addressed and questions were appropriate and did a good job of "selling" the role. Secondary with a key member of current team and that one felt more "checklisty" and lacked real connection - felt like it was just "tell me about a time"...but they didn't actually care about the answers as they just went to the next one quickly. Last interview was very productive as it was a key leader of the role and was more in-depth and to the point with details and felt really pursued and needed at that point.

    Seemed like a good company. They wanted me to do entry level sales and my experience was beyond that, based on my experience as a business owner and previous sales. I decided to not move on with any further interviews.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sunrun.

    Interview

    Quick and easy interview process. They ask the same questions repeatedly in different forms, and it's pretty exhausting finding different ways to tell the same story. They've got a pretty standard interview format, and they'll ask those typical hard questions about your previous employment responsibilities and how you handled them.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time where you had trouble communicating something and how you resolved it   Answer Question

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sunrun (Denver, CO) in September 2020.

    Interview

    Shortly after applying via Indeed, I received an email from a hiring manager. We set up a time later in the week as my schedule was pretty full. We confirmed the time and went ahead with my week.

    Come the time for the interview, I received a call a few minutes late. I was immediately told that the positions have already been filled. Basically, their process was phone interview and an immediate offer, rather than going through all of their approved applicants.

    In an instance like this, where there is no job to be offered, a simple email would have been much more appropriate and professional.

    Based on the reviews that I now see, I guess that this is just par for the course for this company. I should have looked at the reviews before sending them my resume.
