Advice to Management
For the most the management at WXII 12 are great and easy to deal with.
The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hearst (San Francisco, CA).
Spoke with the recruiter on the phone first for about 30 minutes. She was very warm and we spoke casually about my resume and about what the position would entail. I was super excited about the role at this point. Then came the in-person interview with the hiring manager. He was way too serious in my opinion. No sense of humor and we couldn’t connect. He asked me multiplication questions during the interview which was bizarre. He asked mainly negatively aiming questions like ‘what is your biggest flaw’ and ‘what was your worst miscommunication at work’. The worst part was the job sounded so old fashioned and rigid EVERY morning there is a team meeting in the SF office despite this job requiring travel around the entire Bay Area daily. To me this is highly inefficient. I also feel that the interview didn’t allow me to show my selling ability. I think we both left knowing this was not the right fit for either of us. I recommend this job for a more old-school salesmen, not for someone looking for the flexibility and innovative way of working that the tech companies in the Silicon Valley provide.
