    The marketing for Inflection is totally authentic: it's a fantastic place to work. These folks walk the talk. Recent leadership additions have raised the bar on hiring and raised the profile of this company even further. High ethical standards and concern about social impact make it a great place for professionals who want to make a difference beyond just profits.


    The range of products and business goals can mean juggling a lot of priorities at the same time.

    Motion Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood Shores, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Inflection (Redwood Shores, CA) in June 2015.


    1. phone interview with general information 2. 2nd interview with a higher up HR person 3. in person interview with 4 different people some with design backgrounds some with a marketing "social" title. 4. followed by weeks of not getting back to you. Having phone interviews not be finalized because their HR person forgot to schedule them. Like many of the reviews say this place plays itself off as a "startup" and runs a puppy mill campaign actively targeting recent grads. Allowing for low wages and unqualified youngsters with "management" titles. Making for a painful in person interview full of "uh huh" and "giggly laughter" responses. The interview allows you to have lunch with your potential coworkers allowing you to see the great divide of the people who actually do work (programers, designers, sales, etc.) and the rest of the collective dorm people, 99% of which where from Boston oddly enough. Free lunches and massages and other silly perks seem to be the jedi mind trick that keeps the recent grads drinking the kool aid. When you have enough work/life experiences you realize these are simply a means to offer less salary and keep you working, no thanks.

    • Many of the questions had nothing to do with my skill set and where merely "what can you do with our brand?" type.   1 Answer
