    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Tableau Software (Seattle, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    An initial phone screen, then second with the Digital Marketing Manager. Both went well, then I was invited in for on sight with two team members and a face to face with the Digital Marketing manager again. It went well from what I could tell, everyone was nice and personable. A lot of focus on my past experience and some specific capabilities as they applied directly to their current needs. The interview was at the end of the week, I was contacted early the next week by the recruiting team to inform me they were going with someone else. I did like that I had received a response.

    Interview

    screening phone call, short problem set based in the software, follow up phone call, 3-hour technical demo and additional interview. Recruiter provided lots of helpful pre-interview information. I had about a week to prepare for the demo and learn some basics about the software. The technical questions were Tableau-related and the other interview questions were pretty typical. A few logic questions too

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Tableau Software (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email within a week for a screening call with the recruiter. Moved on to two more phone interviews with the hiring managers but did not pass to the final round. The process was still very positive. The recruiter was very responsive, professional, and friendly. Very thorough interview questions about background and experience from the hiring managers, which is great because they want to ensure it's the right candidate for the position. They communicated fairly quickly about next steps and even received a professional and personal no thank you email within one business day.
