    People Operations Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Slack (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter at the company, then my prospective manager. The meetings were conversational but also well focused, they felt casual but let me showcase what I knew. I came back for onsites a week or two later and met with a broader spectrum of the team. Everyone was very friendly and asked good questions. I felt welcome and informed throughout the process.
