Workday

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application

The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Workday

Interview

Recruiter reached out to schedule call so I provided my availability. A few days go by without response and recruiter apologies and asks for additional times I might be available. Provided additional times and (you guessed it) no response. Received an email over the weekend that mentioned they’re pursuing other candidates at this time. We all are very busy , however, common courtesy shouldn’t be sacrificed.

Prior to Consulting also 3 years of a leadership + 5 years non-leadership experience with different company. Total years in workforce = 15.

Pleasant experience with the recruiter but it was short and they didn't ask me to go into a lot of depth with my experience. I was surprised that there weren't more questions asking for specifics.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Workday (Irvine, CA) in Dec 2019

Interview

Interview with the recruiter was great. Interview with the hiring manager was friendly but lackluster. The manager clearly had lost passion for the role, purpose & customers. Very average and disappointing. I was not interested or excited after speaking with the manager.

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Workday (Pleasanton, CA) in Nov 2018

Interview

Got through multiple phone screens, was told they had a position open, and then when I got on site was let down. Bottom line- when I got on site for my interview the person said to me "we already filled the spot but did not want to tell you not to come in and interview with short notice". This is an absolute joke. They knew they filled the job and didn't have an open position but still grilled me and made me go through an interview- absolutely unacceptable. This is the second time I tried to interview here and both times was turned off by the company and employees. Others that I know also interviewed here and had a similar experience. The overall vibe to those interviewing is that MOST of the people at the company feel like they are better than you and they belittle you. Workday is not the best company in the world and is not the only company in the world. They need to be more humble and respectful. Over the years I have interviewed many places and this one has left one of the worst taste in my mouth out of them all. Don't waste your time or energy. For a company in the HR space you would think they would have it more together. Total let down.
