Advice to Management
Thanks for consistently demonstrating care for your employees, not only on a professional but also a personal level.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DataCamp (New York, NY) in March 2018.
The interview process was fairly seamless. I was contacted by the Chief Sales Officer as a referral from a friend. We set up 30 minute call where he gave me a brief overview about DataCamp and I gave some background about myself and what I was looking for in a sales positon.
From there, I set up time to come into the office to have a meeting with him in person. I asked a bunch more questions about the opportunity and he was very helpful, I wouldn't say I got asked anything out of the ordinary. He asked me to come in later that week to meet with two of the Co-Founders as well as the Chief Customer Officer. It was definitely a quick turnaround but I was very eager to leave my current position so I said yes. The Chief of Sales actually took the time to call me after our original call to prep me for my second in person interview, told me how to prepare, what courses to take, I could tell he genuinely cared about the outcome of my second interview.
My second in person interview took around 1.5 hours. I thought it was fairly seamless, the Chief Sales Officer had prepped me prior to me coming in on the phone so I felt fairly confident. All of the 3 next interviews were pretty standard, nothing out of the ordinary. I thought all of them were friendly and asked a lot of interesting questions (some were actually pretty hard and got me to think!)
Overall, I think the process took less than two weeks and I verbally accepted the job the night of my second in person interview.
