Advice to Management
Continue to invest in product and innovation.
I applied online. I interviewed at Simply Measured.
After applying online, I heard about a week or so later to schedule a phone screen. I first had a phone screen with the recruiter and then I had a phone interview with the hiring manager. He gave me an assignment to complete to test my skills for the position. At the time, I was not living in Seattle so the next step was a video interview where we went over my answers to the assignment. According to the hiring manager I did very well and he told me that he wanted to interview me in person. The recruiter reached out to me to schedule a time when I would be available to fly to Seattle and I passed along multiple dates. I did not hear back from her for a week so I followed up. She responded saying there was a delay and I provided her more dates that I would be available. I eventually received a rejection email about a week or 2 later.
I understand that it can be costly to fly someone in for an interview but they were aware of my location for the duration of the interview process. Also, if you don't anticipate being able to fly people in for an interview then they shoudn't have promised it or told me that they would be scheduling it.
I do not think they have people full-time/in-house that are recruiters so maybe that explains some of the lack of process and disorganization.
