    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at iCore Networks in October 2014.

    Interview

    I got a call from their HR who found my resume on monster. She was extremely nice and we had about a 15min conversation on the phone where she asked the usual questions - why are you looking to leave, why are you interested in iCore, etc. Then we scheduled the next interview on site to meet with a few people including the head of the department.

    I was told that there is a 4 step interview process - 1 phone screen, 2 meet with department, 3 shadowing day, 4 meet with CEO. well the position I was interviewing for had no "department," so I met with the CEO with 2 other people in the room for the second interview. I could tell that the CEO really cared about his company, but the meeting was somewhat unusual for me because I was not expecting to do the last step as the second step, and I felt like a student being schooled during the entire time. At the end of it however, I felt positive because he spoke as if he was ready to offer me the position.

    I went through a 3rd and 4th round, each about a couple of hours, the 3rd being meeting with people in cross departmental positions and 4th with a couple more that the position might remotely be tied to. There was no "shadowing" day for me because again, no department for that position. I thought the 3rd and 4th interview could be tied into one. The people I met with were nice and professional. I asked all of them if they liked working there and they all said they liked it. However, many of them were recent hires - one head of a department has been there for only 4 months. after the final interview the HR person told me she would be reaching out to me in a few days.

    the end of week came and went, so I followed up next week and was told that they went with another candidate.

    Overall I thought:
    - the first person you talk to, the HR person, is energetic and nice but you can tell she's very tired and overworked;
    - the presentation of the space was very lacking, half of the building is in construction and the cubicles just look sad;
    - you have to pay for parking each and every time and they don't reimburse you for that which kind of sucks;
    - all indications are that work/life balance is poor and the environment does not seem all that happy but if you ask them directly whether they like working there, they all say they love it.
    - mandatory 8am company meetings may not be warranted every single day;
    - definitely takes a certain kind of person (perhaps a workaholic) who is willing to overlook a lot of things to fit into their company culture.

    I'm sure many talented individuals work there and it is a good company in many respects, but evaluation of the company and the job and whether it fits into your current goals is necessary as much as they evaluate you.
