    Senior Business Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mill Valley, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Rigorous process and positive experience. Recruiter screen, phone interview with case + behavioral questions, excel/PPT homework assignment, then an on-site with three cases and an additional behavioral experience. While the process was time intensive, in my experience, it was on par with the level of investment required for BizOps roles at other tech companies. I appreciated how the process enabled me to meet various people at different levels across the team, which helped me assess whether the team and role would be a good fit for me.

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    2 phones, 1 case study, 1 virtual (onsite)

    From a process standpoint, it was timely and smooth except for a small hiccup during virtual interview when last interviewer did not show; however, it was a touch-base with recruiter and we ended up immediately connecting via email/phone instead so promptly resolved.

    Case study was a sales analysis although role was cost focused.

    Interview was average although schedule was unclear and I had to give an impromptu presentation on the case study, so I was really surprised and unprepared, unfortunately. I'd definitely suggest clearer communication related to schedule.

    In terms of the folks who I interacted with, everyone I spoke to was pleasant until the last interviewer, who also happened to be the overarching leader of the entire team. Sadly he just did not make a good impression on me. He seemed annoyed having to speak with me and disinterested during the interview, which completely killed any excitement I had about the possibility of joining the team and Glassdoor. I honestly don't know if this was a tactical approach or if I rubbed him wrongly from the get-go, but either way it's not a positive image and selling point nor a good way to promote yourself or the team dynamic, especially coming from a leadership position who I personally look to as examples and mentors. This interaction ultimately led me to immediately remove my candidacy from the interview process, sadly, but I hope sharing my experience can help future candidates better prepare for what to expect so to brace themselves.

    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (San Francisco, CA (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a recruiter, phone interview with hiring manager, case study, and a virtual onsite.

    Interviews process took about 3 weeks. First two calls were about my background and previous projects. The case study was a broad analysis of the business with a data set. Virtual onsite was smooth and we debriefed the case study.

    The recruiter was readily available for questions and was extremely helpful. She was transparent throughout the process which is incredible during such unknown times. The team members were awesome to speak with and every conversation felt unique.

    Unfortunately I did not get the offer due to my experience level. I wish I knew this before spending 2 days working on a case study, preparing, and interviewing.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor in January 2020.

    Interview

    Karat interview and then call for onsite. Onsite interview never materialized as they deliberately kept postponing . Then they converted onsite interview to virtual interview and then 2 days before the interview sent a mail that position was filled. Meaning all along they were waiting someone to accept the offer while wasting other candidates time. Would not consider this company again.

    Learning's from this: Ask the recruiter how many other candidates they are interviewing and get to know the stage they are in. (What applies to candidates holds good for companies as well). This is one interview where I wish I had failed in phone screening itself !
