Advice to Management
Keep it up!
I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Equilar (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.
I was contacted by a recruiter to set up a phone screening for this role. I then moved on to a phone interview with the VP of sales who asked my about my background and my interest in the company, as well as some questions about my interest in their specific products which were somewhat detail-oriented. The recruiter followed up with me saying the VP of sales was very impressed and wanted to move forward with a product demo. I created a powerpoint deck and did a virtual product pitch for the VP of sales. Again, the feedback I received was that he was very impressed with my presentation and our conversation afterward, and that I stood out among all of the other candidates. I was asked to then create an example of an email to a client that involved finding a news article relating to the industry and was given feedback. The VP of sales then asked me to come in for an in-person interview the next day. I came in and spoke with him about the logistics of the role. It was very conversational and positive. The recruiter followed up with me after the fact to let me know that there was again excellent feedback and that I now would have an interview with my potential manager. This call was friendly, informal, and even involved discussing the logistics of when I would be able to start. According to my manager, both of the team members had great reviews of me and felt as though I stood out as a candidate. I was then asked to complete a 20-30 minute skype call with the CEO as the final step. The CEO asked me to walk him through my work history, asked why I was looking to leave my current role, and then asked me if I had questions for him. After my third question, and only about 8 minutes into the call, he essentially cut me off and abruptly shooed me off the call. I found it bizarre considering that everyone I had interviewed with so far had allegedly thought I was an excellent fit for the role, and then the CEO was rather disinterested and almost rude when speaking with me. I got a call the next day that I would not be receiving an offer because the CEO decided to extend an offer to a candidate who did not come from the staffing agency. I wanted to write this review because I feel like the CEO went into the call knowing he would not be making me an offer before ever giving me a chance. I would advise that anyone who interviews here proceed with caution and just be aware that rave reviews from your interviewers may not mean as much as you think it does. This process was very fast-paced and took a lot of effort and preparation. I probably read the website 15 times over.
