    Field Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Venafi (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2016.

    Interview

    My resume was passed without my knowledge to Venafi a contact made through networking. I received an email in error from Venafi that caused me to make a call to their HR department as I was quite confused. I was answered promptly and helpfully by a member of the HR team and told that I was a candidate for the position. I received a call a few days later and had a very quick, first interview. The process took over 6 weeks and involved 8 interviews (7 of them by phone including the first one). I really enjoyed everyone who I "met" and was very excited by the prospect of the job. I was very disappointed when I was not the successful candidate but would still describe it as a very positive experience - just be prepared for it to take a bit of time.

    Inside Sales Representative (Account Executive) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Venafi (Salt Lake City, UT) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Was initially contacted by a recruiter after submitting my resume. I was referred by an existing employee.

    After an initial phone conversation with recruiter I was then referred to the hiring manager and had a phone interview with him a couple days later.

    This was then followed by in person interviews where I spent 5 hours interviewing with every executive in the company. VP of Finance, VP of Legal, VP of Sales, VP of Client services, etc. All in succession.

    This was then followed by an in person sales presentation with all of the same people present along with a couple of sales reps.

    Then a phone interview with the outside sales rep that I would be working with.

    After all of this they didn't even bother to respond to any of my follow-up emails, requests for next steps, and phone calls. After 3 weeks of silence the same recruiter finally bothered to call me and let me know that they hired for the position already.

    They had no respect, no common courtesy, no professionalism.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sandy, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Venafi (Sandy, UT) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed with head of engineering for one hour. His questions were theory/personality/coding based. Built instant report. He was extremely personable and friendly yet frank and honest. After that interview he had me interview with two engineers from the department. They asked very in-depth questions based on C# and JavaScript and had me write some code in both languages that solved certain problems. Both were extremely skilled and knowledgeable, yet came across as friendly and personable. I was invited to interview with the executive staff several weeks later. These interviews were much more about personality, cultural fit, type questions. All of them were very engaging, passionate individuals and extremely good at their respective jobs. They were also much tougher on my resume and were more difficult to read. I was then invited back to interview with the CEO. This was the highlight of the interviewing process. He was relaxed and comfortable and was far more interested in me as a person than about my skill-set. He helped educate me on why I would want to work for Venafi. Overall, fantastic process!
