I have been working at Peakon full-time
Management is bought in and passionate about protecting the company culture
Scaling up fast enough while maintaining the organisational integrity is tough
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Peakon (New York, NY) in March 2018.
The interview process started with a 30 min. screening call where we mostly talked about my experience and motivation for joining the company. We didn't go into too much technical detail, because I suppose that's done at a later stage.
At the end I was asked about my current salary, if applicable, and what my termination notice period is. I was told that they would get back to me with feedback after a couple of days where I would find out if I moved to the next stage or not. The email came and unfortunately I was rejected with no feedback or any kind of motivation whatsoever.
The outcome was disappointing, to say the least, particularly because I had higher expectations from Peakon, given the work they do. I expected at least some reasoning for being rejected. Is it lack of experience? Did I say something wrong during the call? I don't know. What I know is that I was qualified for the job, currently working in the exact same position and with all the technologies they mentioned as requirements in the job description on a daily basis. I can appreciate that there might have been other more qualified candidates and definitely don't condemn the company for rejecting me, but at least provide some feedback, otherwise it's 30 minutes that I get nothing out of.
I hope you will find this criticism constructive and take it into consideration in the future. Candidates dedicate their time to apply and go through the process. The least we deserve is a bit of feedback.
