    Senior Research Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PitchBook (Seattle, WA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter to schedule a screening interview via telephone. The interview lasted 20 minutes and was simple and pleasant. The recruiter was kind and helpful, although an emphasis was placed on salary and on what other companies I was applying to.

    I was contacted to have a second interview via videophone which lasted 1 hour with two members of the team. The interview was straightforward enough, but the panel seemed disengaged. Again, there was a strange fixation on compensation and my other prospects, so much so that it was brought up multiple times.

    I got the sense that PitchBook didn’t have a solid idea of what the role would encompass and i found it difficult to provide meaningful responses with such an abstract idea of what was being asked of me.

    By the end of the call, I was convinced that what PitchBook was looking for the least experienced candidate who could still perform the basics of the role for the lowest amount of compensation.

    I received no follow up contact from PitchBook after the interview and my polite, infrequent attempts to follow up went ignored.

    Finally, I received an auto rejection letter from a “no-reply” account stating that they were moving forward with other candidates.

    What was most concerning is that I was rejected for the role of Data Collection Operations Specialist, rather than Senior Research Associate for which I applied. Any attempt to get clarification on this discrepancy was ignored and, for all I know, the wrong group interviewed me.

    Positives: the recruiter was polite and helpful until they began to ignore me.

    Negatives: the company seems disorganized and is clearly trying to compensate its employees as little as possible. The position title changing somewhere along the way also left a bad taste in my mouth.
