    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Parallels.

    Interview

    The interview process was great. Scott did an excellent job keeping me in "the loop" in terms of the overall schedule and setting expectations around the entire process from interview to potential offer. The team asked the tough questions but also painted a clear picture of the role, what they were looking for and what it can be like working for a global company like Parallels.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were very targeted around HR Programs and Processes. However, it was also clearly an interview to ensure I was a good fit for the team dynamic.   Answer Question
