Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

  1. Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Or Yehuda
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at MyHeritage (Or Yehuda) in Aug 2022

    Interview

    A company that poses as hi-tech, whilst paying their Israeli employees a minimum wage base salary (~4000 ILS/month), purely out of legal obligations. I was even told during the interview that since there are no legal minimum wage obligations in the USA, they don’t even pay their US employees a base salary at all! This is a completely exploitative company. Run away now!

    Interview

    Asked me to sell something random. When I asked if I could sell MyHeritage, which is what I'd actually applied to sell & would have been selling in the future had I gotten the position, I was told no. Was also asked to teach them about something that interests me personally in life. However, every time I tried to answer this, I was told they weren't interested in learning about what I tried to teach them. You can't ask something so subjective and then show no interest in what candidates have to say! What kind of interview question is that?! Terrible company to work for. Definitely feel that I dodged a bullet by not being accepted.
