    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Etsy.

    Interview

    Phone interview with internal recruiter. Phone interview with direct manager. Project assignment that took 3 days. 6 final round interviews with various members of the team (all via video due to COVID-19).

    I spent a month+ of time interviewing with this company only for them to go radio silent for 2 weeks and then send me an automated rejection email, refusing to offer me any additional feedback on the process or my skillset.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your experience in working cross functionally? What is your experience in dealing with executives at the C-Suite level? What is your experience with crisis communications and conflict internally? Tactical, reporting, finance management, media relations, and managerial experience.   Answer Question
