Advice to Management
ON24 is has come a long way and there is a visible change to who the company use to be. It's all good
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ON24, Inc. (Charlotte, NC) in June 2017.
One of the worst interviewing experiences I have had. It began with a recruiter contacting me about the position (I had first applied to the MDR position, however I was informed that it had already been filled). I emailed him back saying that I was interested and we scheduled a phone interview. That went well- nice guy and he provided a minute amount of details about the job, informing me that the SDR manager would give me more information in the follow-up phone interview that he would be scheduling. He gave me "hints" about what characteristics his manager looked for in a candidate and broke down the interviewing process for me. I received an email later on that day informing of the time she would be contacting me; she ended up calling me late (no big deal) and began the call as if it were an inconvenience for her. She didn't provide me with much time to give her information about myself and dove right into the "interview questions." At this point I felt uneasy about the experience because I like to allow the interviewer the time to get to know my situation and where I am at in my job search (an introduction if you will). I answered her TWO interview questions, expecting her to have more that would pertain to my experience and my education, but no. She proceeded to repeat the same TWO questions... confused I answered with the same exact answers that I had given her before. She then seemed to become frustrated as if I were not giving her the answers she was fishing for. I am a genuine person, and ultimately that is reflected in my interview answers. I do not "fake" my qualities or personality. Once she became apparently frustrated with me, I paused, asked her if she minded rewording the questions because it seemed that I was not answering them correctly. She then rudely said "Well your 15-minutes are up now, how about you just go ahead and ask me your questions." Shocked, I stumbled to respond, confused by her attitude towards me the entire conversation. I asked my 5 prepared questions. Her responses to all of them were short and "direct," not giving much information or detail, as if she were ready to hang up. Still to this day I can not tell you the culture of this company or their values. I asked both the recruiter and her, the most I got was they were a team that did things together. It seems they are sales driven and that is all (understandably considering the role, but I am in the process of interviewing for sales positions with other companies that value many things, i.e. community involvement, work-life balance, the health and well-being of their employees, none of which were mentioned). I asked the lady about her experience within the company and she proceeded to chat about how her team was in horrible condition until she became their manager which seemed very negative in my opinion. I also asked her approximately how long someone remains in this role until moving upward or out the door and she said typically 6 months. The longest someone has remained on her team was 1 year. Overall, very disappointing. When I spoke to the recruiter I became excited to learn more about the company, but it seems rather disappointing. Not a great fit for anyone to begin their career with a well-established company that has a goal of upward mobility and stability. I do not feel that I would gain any sort of professional mentorship or development by being employed by this company. I am expecting the ever so grand automated rejection email within the next couple of days, which is completely fine. If they were to follow-up for the next step in the process, I would certainly decline. Yes, I am a recent graduate, but my skills (gained through 5 years of employment while attending college) and my education are valuable and I am searching for a company that sees that value, or at least takes five minutes to let me talk about it.
