    Employee Engagement Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cloudreach (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    I was worried all the interviews would be remote because the team was remote, but all candidates who will report into an office get to go into the office and have a "Cloudy Panel" interview with someone not related to the team at all. It's exclusively for culture, which is really cool to see if you'll fit in! Everyone was really pleasant and surprising transparent during the entire process.

    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Remote, OR (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cloudreach (Remote, OR (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Email, phone screen with HR, a "case study" test to demonstrate my skills, and then a Google Hangouts video call one-on-one with a team lead. The HR recruiter was great and the phone screen was simple. The one-on-one was not what I expected, however, as the team lead didn't seem to want to be there and couldn't speak to how technical the position would be or any other specific details. They also misunderstood some of my explanations of my experience and seemed to quickly jump to the conclusion that I wasn't a great match based on an anecdote I told them from over six years ago in my career. They also didn't really ask about who I was at all, and all of this surprised me coming from a company who's culture is supposed to be so people-focused and friendly. Maybe I caught them on a bad day?

    Interview Questions

    • Not any very specific questions since they didn't seem to know how technical the position was going to be.   1 Answer

    Cloud Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cloudreach in December 2017.

    Interview

    First part is a phone screen - normal recruiter questions. Why are you looking for a job? What are you currently doing, etc. The second part is a take home quiz, given for 5 days. Two questions, about a page for each. If you get through that than you get to speak to Architect on the phone.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. Describe in detail a conceptual Cloud Architecture for a new mobile web application which needs to scale to meet peak demands generated from TV advertising. The client is taking a PaaS first cloud strategy. The application stores a significant amount of image data, does image manipulation, and for disaster reasons, needs geographic redundancy.   Answer Question
    • 2. What is the best way to manage system configuration across multiple servers with multiple OS types and versions, including on premise? Some of these servers are ephemeral in nature, how would you address that?   Answer Question

    Office Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cloudreach (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process was thorough and no matter the position after the initial phone screening, there seems to be a case study. I proceeded to move forward with two other video calls, which I believed went very well.

    In addition to being a solid CLOUDY candidate, I also know I have the skills and experience to back up the position. All this in mind, I recently received a rejection email with a new title other than the position to which I originally applied. "Assistant Office Manager." Given the recruiter was very open about what salary the company was willing to offer at the initial interview stage is a red flag for the experienced, but I was willing to continue forward as I believed in the company's values.

    Aside from this red flag, I will say my interviewers were very pleasant and I had an exceptional conversation with Michael Traverse from Vancouver, Canada.

    For future interviewees, please consider all of your options and don't trouble yourselves with companies that pass you up for other candidates. Another position with an amazing culture/company was offered to me the same day as my rejection and the pay worthy of the experience. More fish in the sea, y'all. :)

    Solutions Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cloudreach (New York, NY (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on linkedin, got in touch with talent acquisitions. Had a video call that lasted about 30 minutes, I left a good impression and got to the case study. Spent a long time on that thing (which I don't think I would do again for other companies due to chances it is for nothing and a big waste of time) only for a few days to pass and getting a rejection letter. The curious part of this rejection letter is a line saying "so and so (assume this is a team leader or something) really enjoyed his time speaking with you" which makes it seem as if I had made it to the third phase of the interview when I didn't. Way to make an applicant feel like canned meat.

    Cloud Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cloudreach (New York, NY (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Phonescreen, take home subject matter quiz/doc, Online Interview with Hiring Mgr, and Panel/Whiteboard session interview ( 2.5 hr). Questions for Architect role vague and specifics towards new technologies were left open and retrospect they were looking for particular solutions even though design possibilities left a lot of flexibility to be creative beyond their expected answers. Kept getting asked specifics on company research and why interested. The open format seems progressive but this open format I feel limits digging into candidate skills/experience. Most interviewers had not reviewed any background so a lot of repetition with each new discussion. Also, felt age discriminated against as young company with progressive values ( appreciated ) but going through my history of experience and business maturity seemed to be a mark against me along with being over 40.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cloudreach (Atlanta, GA (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through LinkedIN and was contacted by the Talent Acquisition Lead. I had a phone conversation and also had to pass a case assessment before being invited to interview. Overall, the company is exciting to work for and the interaction I had with the Lead was pleasant.

    Cloud Solutions Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carpentersville, IL (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cloudreach (Carpentersville, IL (US)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied via LinkedIn on 4/1/16. Received an email on 4/5/16 indicating, "Your application has been successful." Initial phone interview was scheduled for 4/22/16.
    By all indications the interview went well. I was told to expect an email with a link to case study questions and that I would have until the following Friday to respond. I sent a follow-up email after the call, suggesting that I was definitely interested and looking forward to completing the questions.
    I noticed that two people from the company viewed my LinkedIn profile shortly after the call.
    The following Monday, when I had not received the link, I email the recruiter to see if it was sent. Within minutes I received the canned, system generated rejection letter. I made two attempts to follow-up with her via email with absolutely no response.
    Can't help but feel like me obviously being over 40 presented a problem for someone in the organization.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Cloudreach.

    Interview

    Rookies...I have a real extensive sales resume, real contacts and customers, real sales awards and have sold real solutions. Yet they have you do a fake presentation to fake decision makers in a fake boardroom selling a fake solution. (An amateur sales 101 role play ). Huh?? ...would it not make sense to talk to real references about real deals! The more you continue to overthink your candidates and extend your hiring process the longer it takes to get deals/revenue. It does not appear there is a big rush to do either.

    Cloud Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cloudreach.

    Interview

    1) Initial phone screen with recruiter to go over resume and general behavioral questions.
    2) Conversation with a senior consultant about the position. Was primarily behavioral as well, and some discussion of the type of working currently performing or have performed in the past.

    The trail basically went cold after this. I had reached out to the recruiter, and no response whatsoever. This is pretty unprofessional behavior and demonstrates a lack of maturity in their HR processes. The constructive feedback would be to keep your potential candidates in the loop better.
