    Commercial Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Datadog (New York, NY) in January 2019.

    Interview

    HR screening, followed by interviews with reporting manager and VPs.

    All are focused on your skills and experience to make sure they are aligned with what the job requires which they will share with you, so you can showcase exactly how your experience will fit.

    If all go well, they will give you an assignment.

    It took about a month to go through the entire process. What’s funny is that one of them gives me a feedback which is 180 degree different from what I have been sharing from my experience that they have focused on as requirements for this role and tells me I don’t have the specific experience in something that has never been brought up during the entire interview process.

    So, I wasn’t quite sure if they wanted to hire this role. I felt like I spent time and effort that went into the drain.
