    I have been working at Dealer Inspire full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunities are endless! I think this is the perfect job if you are looking for growth. This company is growing so fast, and has a truly engaged executive team that is looking for rising stars! I know they listen to suggestions and ideas for growth. I will say nothing is handed to you, and if you are looking for a job where management will come to you with an opportunity, this isn't the place. You need to talk about where you see yourself going, and show you are able to follow through. Also, some people may disagree there is an open door policy, but they are not trying. I really am excited about my future and I think opportunities are there if you make them!

    Cons

    I think if you are working hard but don't have a big voice and championing your own achievements they get lost. I think this is a good lesson to learn and is something you have to learn at any company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to everyone on your team, please don't just let the loudest win.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Dealer Inspire (Naperville, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The process consisted of 2 phone interviews and one in person interview with 5 different stake holders. The first phone screen with HR person went very well. The questions are very general, easy to answer and not technical.

    I was invited to interview with 3 people on the phone again (direct reports and a translator were on the phone since I was interviewing for a bilingual role). There are some technical questions but considering my seniority, these were very easy. I'm assuming I did well at this second call too because I was invited to travel for an in person. They flew me to Chicago and treated me very well. The people I met are all very nice.

    I think that there were moments in the in person interview with the HR team were both parties could anticipate this role would not be a good fit. I guess I wish we could have avoided all the trouble (on both sides) but that's what it takes. I would recommend the company or role if you are young and want to gain experience as the products/services they offer are on point for the vertical. The company seems to be hiring very junior people for cheap. I came in asking for the position's salary cap and asked about the work/life balance as it was mentioned in Glassdoor. I could tell this was not a good question to ask. I just wanted to set expectations since I do want to have time for my family.

    It took about 6 weeks to get a final no. Reasons were related to my cost being too high.
