I interviewed at WP Engine

Interview

Very long process. It was a three month long process. Several levels of interviews over weeks of no activity. The feed back from each stage was positive and they keep you engaged but the process length caused me to lose out in other options.

I applied online. I interviewed at WP Engine in Sep 2022

Interview

I was strung along by a recruiter and then my interview got canceled at the last minute. It felt like a waste of my time. I was scheduled for the next round and it was canceled soon before.

Interview Questions
  • The interview with the recruiter was standard behavioral stuff, but it ultimately felt like a waste of my time. I was scheduled for the next round and it was canceled soon before.

Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

Interview

Collaborative, friendly process. Interview questions were well within the norm, some case study/ whiteboarding sessions. It seemed natural, not too scripted. Overall almost a little boring but that also tells you something.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at WP Engine

Interview

I went through 7 rounds of interviews. Poor communication from recruiter, lots of issues with their video, random cancellations and would go 7+ days without hearing. Didn’t get the role and they didn’t even call after a significant amount of time invested.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WP Engine in Jul 2022

Interview

Standard Process as 1 interview with hiring manager and next 4 technical and cultural fit rounds. Very good experience with all interviewee but they were brought in from different team and there was lack of clarity about role and what coding language they were looking for. My resume stats that I have experience with Java but they were finding Go lang when I got the all thumps up and so I declined the offer.

Interview

Recruiter was very nice, communicative and helpful. I loved everyone I spoke with. The entire process was very pleasant and I felt relaxed through every stage. There was a final presentation I spent several hours preparing a presentation for, but I probably could have made a powerpoint in an hour if I cut corners. Unfortunately the salary and sales target were much less than I make in my current role.

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at WP Engine (Chicago, IL) in May 2022

Interview

Worst recruitment/interview experience of my career. I was in the process for 2.5 months total, 5 interviews (my final round was 3 back-to-back 30-minute interviews). 6 weeks after my final round of interviews, I was told that there was a hiring freeze at the company so they were no longer looking to fill the role. I was told this not through the recruiter but through a former colleague that works in that department. It was extremely frustrating because a month prior, I was told by the recruiter everyone loved me and wanted to extend an offer a month into the process and that "an offer hopefully be coming later that week"). After that, the recruiter never touched base with me again. It's been days and still, the recruiter never reached out to me to let me know the news. If I didn't have a personal relationship with someone in the department, I wonder if I would have ever been told the news or if I would have just been ghosted.
