Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Thumbtack in September 2016.

Interview

I applied online and heard back from the recruiter within a couple days. Unfortunately after that, the process was extremely drawn out. I had to follow up multiple times with the recruiters at every point during the process.

1. 30 min call with recruiter
2. on-site SQL assessment and case study
3. on-site data analysis and presentation

It became pretty clear that they weren't interested in getting to know the candidates or in understanding how their experiences could be an asset to the company. They seem to want results and no personality. The SQL test was fairly straightforward and the case study was not about Thumbtack's business. Didn't make it to stage 3.

Recruiters sent an email detailing why they didn't decide to move forward, which was very much appreciated. However, the email was an automated response to a follow up I had. If you're going to spend time setting up the auto-response with the relevant details, why not just take initiative and send the decision before needing candidates to follow up?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thumbtack (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    After the initial chat with recruiter, I received a take to finish in 48 hours. The wording is very amateur, and the data is inconsistent. It’s obvious that they accidently sent the inconsistent data. I am even sure they don’t even know where the inconsistently is with the data.

    Even in that case, I provided answers but got rejection email with no feedback. After I read the company reviews and their business model, I feel thankful for their decision.

    Interview

    When they reached out to me on linkedin, they told me there would be a certain number of direct reports. When I talked to the recruiter on the phone, she told me analytics managers start off as ICs and "grow into" the manager role. I guess their recruiters are willing to waste everybody's time to get people on the phone on false pretenses.
