    Talent Acquisition Specialist Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cloudreach (Chicago, IL (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Cloudreach's interview process was a very positive experience. The first step was a preliminary phone screen with Emma - Talent Acquisition Lead, NA - who was also the hiring manager in this case. The conversation was relaxed and informative, and helped me get a better understanding of the role, team, and company. The next step in the process was a case study exercise to evaluate my critical thinking abilities as they pertained to the role. Following the case study, I was invited in for a face-to-face round which included an in-person interview with several people from the team followed by a video chat with the EU-based business unit head. The final round was the "Cloudy Panel," which was a non-technical, cultural interview to assess my alignment with Cloudreach's core values. I loved this last step, as it was a testament to Cloudreach's commitment to its "cloudy" values.

    Everyone I met throughout the process was friendly and helpful in answering all my questions. It was clear during these initial conversations that Cloudreach values and respects its people, and I'm thrilled to have received an offer to join this special company!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cloudreach (Reston, VA (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by HR for an initial phone interview. The phone interview took place about a week after being contacted then I heard nothing at all . No rejection feedback no feedback what so ever.

    I thought the phone screen with HR went well and then nothing. I guess the HR dept felt as if they didnt respond to my follow up then I would just go away. Sad that this is how recruiting goes nowadays

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I submitted a job application from a 3rd party site, and was contacted within two days, requesting a phone call interview. In this interview, I was asked basic questions to assess my competency with basic Linux and Windows tools. After completing the interview, I was given an online case study which asked various questions including how I would manage a data migration to the cloud.

    They were pleased with my current results, and scheduled an in-person interview in their NY office. The process was very relaxed and friendly. In the very beginning, there was a written competency test with logic problems, and another written test with more basic-level OS ops stuff. I talked to one of their current System Engineers, another one of their employees, and their business leader. The interviews were very down-to-earth, and there were fun questions like my favorite food and coolest talent thrown in their to assess whether or not I was a good fit for the culture.

    Sales Interview

    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.

    Solutions Architect Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cloudreach (New York, NY (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied after finding the position on Linkedin and was contacted by a recruiter shortly thereafter. First step was a phone screen which was was straightforward and went smoothly. From there I was asked to complete an assessment for review. About a week after submission of that, I was contacted for a face-to face interview. I was interviewing a lot of places and Cloudreach really stood out at that moment. It seemed like they were really trying to get to know me as well as assess my ability for the position, which is not something all companies do (which I'm sure everyone knows). Anyway I had a few Google hangout calls following the face to face. Everyone throughout the process was genuine and respectful.
