    Pros

    Very organized and structured hiring process! Turn really makes sure that candidate and company fit together. The global reach of Turn is also a big plus for me as a Non-US employee! Great potential for International staff to grow together with the company, and work in different regions of the world. Everybody seems to be super smart and open to support new employees, which is a great corporate culture.

    Complimentary lunch, snacks & sodas provided in all offices worldwide doesn't hurt either. ;-)

    Cons

    Cannot see any so far!

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you do, and manage the hyper growth of Turn successful!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Turn.

    Interview

    Very unimpressive hiring process from the time it takes for the recruiter to get back to you after interviews to the deceiving way they treat candidates.

    I had to let go of other opportunities as the process with Turn was so long. However they insisted that despite the lengthy process I had a good chance to get the job so I should "hang on there" and be patient. This happened to be true as they did offer me the job, only with the deception of offerering less money and a lower job level than initially discussed.

    Although one of the first questions the recuiter asks you during the pre-interview phone call is about your last salary package and your salary expectations for the role, they salary they offered me two months later, at the end of the interview process was way below my bottom line.
    The conversations with the recruiter were full of cliches from sales negociation tricks such as delaying talking about the salary and over-talking about the company benefits, the training in the California office (as if they were talking to a 10 year-old and a company trip would make a difference to the salary negociation...), repeatedly asking me about what the other companies I was interviewing with were offering as salary, what the job title were etc. I had the impression that the recruiter had some incentive in working on putting the salary down for each candidate.

    Advise to the company:
    - start considering your future employees as company assets and for the value they can add to the organisation when getting them on-board. Work on an offer that reflects how much you value the future employee. Do not try to lower the offer as much as you can by using deceiving technics. This is insulting for the candidate.
    - change the appalling recruitement process, remove the unecessary steps with HR/Recruitment, let the employees run the interviews and the hiring manager take care of the job offer stage....they would do a better job.

    I ended up receiving the deceiving job offer which I declined. I was treated like cheap merchandise they were trying to haggle for.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult question, they ask you to discuss your experience and what you could bring to the business if you were to join. I had a phone interview with the recruiter followed by five interviews with different people, from the hiring manager to other teams. This takes over two months overall...   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    They changed the job level to a lower tier and the salary offered was below the expectation formulated at the beginning of the interview process.
