    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Xactly Corp. (San Jose, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process started out with a very welcoming phone screening by one of the in house recruiters. This was very pleasant and I was kept in the loop with where my application stood and so fourth. Then I was brought into the building for an in house interview with three team members who were very informative and were very pleasant to speak to, especially being that this was my first corporate job interview. I left that day from the interview very excited about the company and the culture, and I have been very happy with Xactly since. :)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Xactly Corp. (Denver, CO) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Very professional and timely. The questions were difficult but rightfully so because the sales process is long and the target prospects are CFOs and Sales leaders. Incredibly happy I had the opportunity to interview for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Xactly Corp. (Denver, CO) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was clear, communicative, and concise. I was in the process of interviewing with multiple organizations for sales roles both in and out of the SaaS industry space and can honestly say Xactly's interview process was by far the best. I was contacted by the recruiting manager within 3 weeks of applying online; our first conversation was a brief introduction over the phone and I was invited to come into the office. After meeting with the recruiting and one of the sales managers in the office I was invited to come back for a final interview with a few more managers of the team. With it being a sales role, I was instructed to prepare a few short pitches to present but overall the process was really comfortable and not overly stressful or nervewracking. Everyone I met was extremely welcoming AND transparent so I was able to make an informed decision when it came time to evaluate the offers I received. In the end, I knew that the culture, candor, and growth opportunity at Xaclty was a great fit for me and I would be extremely happy to be onboard!

    Communications/Writing Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Xactly Corp. (San Jose, CA).

    Interview

    At first, the interview process went great. It wasn't until the in person interview that things went south. Everyone I met with was nice, engaging, etc. But it only takes one person to ruin an experience. Played a lot of games and asked questions that were not relevant to the role or really anything. Condescending and a bad tone honestly. Totally turned me off. It must have shown, as I never got any sort of update at all after that. It was for the better.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Xactly Corp. (Denver, CO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    My initial contact was with their recruiter - Carly J. What an awesome experience! They requested some initial questions be answered and then followed up with a phone interview. This process went very quickly. Xactly and their recruiter were extremely attentive. We mutually decided the fit was not there. The recruiter was excellent in describing the job role and future outlook. She was excellent with her communication and beyond helpful. Kuddos to her and the company she represents.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Xactly Corp. (San Jose, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process was slow: each step took a week or more. The discussion was technical but light. It seemed very subjective. I felt like the employees were OK but not superstars. The location is really convenient. At the time, they seemed unmotivated and kind of casual about the interview process, like it didn't matter. Maybe I interviewed with a group that was not motivated to hire anybody at the time or hoping to find a buddy to hang out with out.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Xactly Corp. in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted about 2 weeks after applying for a phone screen for the Project Manager position. The recruiter seemed to have fired off the email, as it had some typos. Wasn't sure how to take that. She said she would call me on Monday, with no specific time provided. I wrote back and asked if there was a specific time, as I had some meetings and wanted to make sure I was available. No response. She called me at noon that Monday and asked me if it was still a good time (?). I was free, so no problems, I shrugged it off again. We had a great conversation and she said that she would be sending me along to the hiring team and that they wanted to move quickly. As I had other interviews lined up, but was interested in Xactly, I followed up a couple days after, and then about a week later. Never any response - still none to this day. I know, you might say... well, that means you didn't get it! But, I found it very unprofessional and, as someone who does hiring, it's disappointing this person is the first impression of the company.

    SMB Account Executive Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Xactly Corp..

    Interview

    I interviewed for the SMB AE role. I thought the process was average to slightly below average at best. While all the Xactly recruiters and managers I interacted with seemed nice in person, I felt like they were being less than truthful on several topics. E.G. They had SMB AE job postings all over the web but the recruiter continued to tell me throughout the process that she was working on approval for new hires. She even had it written on her LI profile (which said "now hiring for these roles: SMB AE" and had been updated the previous day). She also missed two scheduled calls and was late to two others. I went through 4 rounds of interviews and in the end, did not receive an offer. However, I didn't even receive notification (despite being told I'd be contacted re: next steps) until 2 weeks later when I followed up. No email, no phone call, nothing to let me know where I stood. I found that to be rather inconsiderate.To be honest, the company had a bit of an arrogant feel to it....

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Xactly Corp. (Denver, CO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by the internal recruiter who went out of her way to welcome me and guide me through the interview process. I had an initial phone interview with this recruiter, a 1-hour "meet and greet" with the hiring manager, and a final, (more formal) interview with the same manager.
