    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at simplehuman in December 2016.

    Interview

    Saw the job online and took the time to fill out the application, write cover letter, updated resume. Received a call back a few days later and spoke with someone from HR for the initial screening call. Conversation went well, was asked to send samples, so I took the time to send them. Weeks go by, and I do not hear from anyone.

    I just find that extremely rude and indicative of how the company operates. If the candidate takes the time to apply and supply samples, the LEAST the company can do is have the common courtesy and professionalism to provide an update or response.

    Hardware Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hawthorne, CA
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at simplehuman (Hawthorne, CA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of 3 1:1 interviews lasting about 45 min each: HR, the engineering director, and lead engineer. The engineering director was kind, energetic and informative about the company. His questions were designed to measure your spontaneous creative thinking, by walking through a product (of your choosing) from concept, to describing how you would handle various design challenges.

    There is an overall small-company/start-up feeling with the lack of decor and mismatching furniture. Did not get to tour the lab or assembly area where product development was taking place, so cannot comment on the work environment or lab equipment.
