Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

  1. Sr Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at dbt Labs (United States)

    Interview

    the interview process started off with a conversation with the hiring manager which is mostly behavioral in nature (what are you looking for in your next role, describe how you managed working with someone you didn't get along with, describe someone you worked really well with and why you think you worked well with them.... etc). Nothing related to my previous job experience, previous projects, how my experience fits in the role theyre hiring for etc.

    After that stage i was given a 'take home assignment'. Was told this 'should only take 3 hours'. The assignment comprised being give just a csv, and nothing else, inspect data for discrepancies or data quality issues, analyze the data set and come up with some findings and recommendations, and then record a 5 min video presenting the findings.

    Major red flag is that they have you do this exercise so early on in the process. They decide if you move on or not, not based on your previous work experience which is closest to resemble actual work youd do on a job, but instead base it off of a vague 'take home assignment (aka free work for them). The take home assignment itself is impossible to actually only dedicate 3 hours to, so the hiring process is completely disrespectful to the candidates time.

    Moreover, after submitting the assignment and presenting it to 2 of the team members, I was told they wouldnt move forward. Since they are asking for you to take time out of your personal life, weekend, family time, etc. it only seems fair that they could provide some feedback. I asked the Hiring Manager if they could share any feedback. I was ghosted by her.

    Overall, a terrible experience. You should really not waste people's time with take home assignments up front in the interview. Maybe ask them more about their actual work theyve done, and not judge the bulk of the interview process on a 'mock' problem. Nobody would ever make such important decisions on 3 hours of work. Its a completely unrealistic measure of someone's work, and all it actually does is reward people who are able to dedicate more time on the assignment. If you're going to have people dedicate free time, and do free work for you, you should really be able to give them some feedback so they dont just leave completely empty handed.

    Disappointing considering I'm a big fan of the company and have worked on the exact same types of projects the JD were calling for. Would have loved to contribute to this product, but after this experience, I saw way too many red flags in how they treat the candidate pipeline as just numbers and not people. Completely disrespectful to just ghost someone after they've put in time and effort into something like this.
    Interview

    Take home assignment is really the only thing they seem to care about, which is just a horrible way to screen candidates. You're just only allowing folks who have the ability to spend many hours on the project, who dont have family, illness, or learning disabilities that would prevent them from being able to complete the assignment in "three hours". Unfortunate decision on their part to structure the interview process this way.
