    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Monica, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Alpha (Santa Monica, CA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    First off I should say that everyone I met and interviewed with was friendly. I applied in December and got an email from the recruiter for a phone screen in January. Below I have attached the scheduling of the interviews and below that my reasoning for why this company is getting a poor review from me and tbh my references would also like to leave a review.

    Jan 10-16: Phone screen with recruiter, 30-45 mins
    Jan 21-22: Phone screen with hiring manager, 30-45 mins
    Jan 23-30: In person office 1:1 with 3 people at the company (hiring manager, two different teammates) 3 hours
    Feb 4-13: In person presentation on Saas Product to 3 people at company (hiring manager, two different teammates) 2 hours
    Feb 20-21: Interview with VP + requested for 3 references, 30/45 mins
    March 5: Generic Rejection letter

    Here is the issue- Why is a company taking someone through 8 interviews, a presentation and requesting and speaking with references if you were unsure or not ready to hire the candidate?? I understand you are a startup and trying your best to make it in this big bad tech world but trying to interview like you are at the level of Google and wasting a candidate and references time is absolutely unacceptable. By interview 2/3 you should have had a pretty good grasp on the candidates personality, skill set/talent and felt if it was the right fit for your team. Not to mention during each interview feedback was requested and all that was received was positive. Almost 3 months later and only after a request for updates, to receive a generic email after working so closely with the recruiter is such a shame. Lesson learned here, if you feel a company is unorganized and not being realistic with you.. run while you can and don't waste your time. And pro tip to company- don't ask for references and take up time from their busy schedules if you have not already made up your mind yet.
