Interview

After applying for the job more than a month before, I received an email from a recruiter. That should have been the first red flag. I agreed and did an interview with the recruiter and was immediately moved to the 2nd round with the hiring managers for a few days afterwards. The meeting with the direct supervisor was a lot but his personality wasn’t. He was so monotone, not enthusiastic, but made it clear overtime was expected and it’s a organizational mess right now that needs cleaning up. The 2nd part of that interview with the department director seems to go well. She told me I would hear something in 1-2 days, It’s been 2 weeks and I’ve heard nothing. So I will assume I no offer is extended and that’s ok. The courtesy would be a proper decline. If someone takes time from their busy day to apply and interview for your organization, the least you can do is communicate all decisions whether good or bad.

The interview was easy to set up and they were accommodating of my schedule. I thought the interview went well until the person interviewing me started messaging people towards the end of it. I was informed that there is a total of 4 interviews and 1 technical assessment.

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?

The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Zenefits

Interview

I completed one phone call and 2 video interviews. I was then asked for references and learned an acquisition took place and they were no longer seeking outside candidates and were looking inside. Complete waste of my time. Company does not value applicants time.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zenefits in Feb 2022

Interview

Too "in-depth" of an interview process for this type of role. Four interviews and an assignment before advancing to a hiring manager seems a bit "much" for a non-decision-making / non-supervisory role. Was contacted by a recruiter to schedule a phone screen, given a case study homework assignment. I had another 3 separate interviews with peers on the team each about 45 minutes long.

Interview Questions
  • Most of the questions were case study questions and behavioral-based. HR is not black/white so there are multiple right answers, but you'd need to provide the best.

I applied online. I interviewed at Zenefits

Interview

Applied and was contacted by a recruiter who set up an interview. Everything to this point went well. During the interview, which was scheduled for an hour, I was greeted by the interviewer. The conversation was very stilted. He seemed as though he had other places to be and the last thing he wanted to do was interview me. He kept his replies curt and unconversational. Despite this, I tried to continue the conversation and keep it light. However, after a high-level question about my resume, the interview was cut short by almost 45 minutes. He didn't ask any follow-up questions about the work I've done or the skills I have. He didn't seem to care. He did ask if I had any questions about the company. I had a few, but his answers were very brief and uninformative, as though asking the question were something he needed to check off a list. Even if he thought I wasn't a good fit (which he couldn't have known - we'd barely spoken), ending an interview abruptly like this is not the way to treat prospective talent. The interview concluded with no next steps given and a very puzzled interviewee. I do not recommend applying here.

A call with a designer, a design challenge for a senior that you won't discuss afterwards, a call with a PM and designers who tried to understand a business they have never worked for omitting talking design.

Interview

Did not like the sales team. They were rude, cold, demeaning, arrogant, and all had insurance sales backgrounds instead of SaaS backgrounds for some reason. Really weird interview process that felt impersonal and like and interrogation instead of a conversation. Anyway, not a company you’d want to work for due to the strange people and lousy product.

3 interviews, fairly simple. Standard “explain how your handle” and display some of your successes in previous roles. Nothing out of the ordinary. I personally brought my portfolio to showcase some projects I had worked and been part of with my insurance brokerage company.
