    Engagement Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Looker in September 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online and the hiring manager reached out to me a week after I sent out the application. This is the best interview experience I have had in my career. Everyone I spoke to seemed genuinely nice and they were very open and honest about the company and their jobs.
     I had a phone interview with the hiring manager a week after where he explained to me what the role entails and he assessed fit based on my previous experience. Had a 2nd round of technical interviews with an Engagement Manager, a Data Analyst and Sales Director. They asked questions around knowledge of Saas technologies and SQL, project management and people management styles. 3rd round of interviews was with the SVP of Professional Services and he assessed culture fit and client management style. Last round was with the previous hiring manager, he asked questions about personality and answered the questions that I had from my previous rounds.
    I received a verbal offer a week after the final round of interviews and a written offer a couple of days later.
