    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Diligent in February 2020.

    Interview

    This company is very unprofessional. Applied online, was contacted for a phone interview almost immediately. Had to do multiple back and forths with the HR rep who didn't seem organized or friendly. About an hour before my scheduled phone call, I get a generic rejection email with no context and no note from the HR rep. Finding this to be very strange and not industry standard, I sent an email to the HR rep for clarification and never received a response. Terrible first impression and will never consider working here.

    Corporate Governance Research Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Diligent (Washington, DC (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Had a phone screen with a recruiter where he went over my resume and asked a couple technical questions about the job. Then invited for an interview with the manager and members of the team during which I wasn't asked anything technical but instead I was expected to ask the team members questions about the position. The interview went well and I believed I vibed well with the staff. A week after my interview, I was asked to complete a writing test. I was sent a financial disclosure and asked to provide a summary of relevant factors within 90 mins. A week after completing that, I was told by the recruiter that I did a great job on that as well. However, I was told that a final decision had not been made. The date the recruiter told me a decision would be made by came and went, I followed up and the recruiter gave another date. This happened three times over a month before the recruiter stopped responding to my emails and answering calls.

    Senior Associate Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Diligent.

    Interview

    They started with phone screens with a recruiter, head of the team, and a Sr. member of the engineering team. In-person or video interviews with an outside consultant, senior leadership of the product team, head of design, head of Corp Dev, and head of the team again. The recruiter told me that I was in "the clubhouse" (e.g., first choice) and then told me to give them a few weeks to decide. As a few weeks turned into two months as I was asked to be patient with the executive team multiple times. After requesting an update on my candidacy (due to radio silence), the recruiter told me "the hiring team hasn't mentioned you in a while, so that's probably a no". This was the WORST candidate experience I've ever had. Everyone was enjoyable and interesting individually, but their collective indecisiveness was very rude and disappointing.

    Interview

    Phone interviews with recruiter and three other decision makers. Was also given a personality assessment. Calls went very well and I thought that I was eventually going to make it to the final interviews (and potentially get an offer), but after a week a got an update saying that they moved on with other candidates who closely matched their needs. However, the recruiter gave honest feedback and connected me with her other contacts at similar firms who were hiring for SDR roles!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Diligent.

    Interview

    Recruiter kept rescheduling because he was sick, but an hour before my initial interview he scheduled, he asked if we could talk then. Then had an initial phone screen, the recruiter said I was a really good fit- I was building exactly the product they were looking to hire for. He told me that he would look to talk to the hiring manager in 2-3 days and ghosted me. Emailed and followed up, but he never got back to me..Got a rejection email 1.5 months later with no explanation.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Diligent (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    At first very timely, responsive, transparent and engaging. Lengthy process, no sense of how long before decision is made. Seemed rushed, then not, then rushed again. Recruiter, once fully engaged, completely unresponsive.
