I have been working at Peakon full-time (Less than a year)
I'd never imagined that it was possible working for a company that takes care of their employees like Peakon does.
At my previous workplaces, I would be lucky if I had a 1-1 conversation with my manager once per year. At Peakon it's every two weeks, and ideas and issues are addressed immediately.
The vetting process when hiring new team members is the most exhaustive I've seen, and the results show. Everyone is incredibly talented.
The fast growth sometimes means we have to cram for a week or two. However, this is noticed and addressed by management.
Advice to Management
Keep it up. It's working. Remember to say 'no' to customer demands that wont improve the experience for everyone else.
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.
