    Director of Product Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cohesity (San Jose, CA (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Interview process was poorly planned. I was one of the first candidates to apply, and I completed the first battery of interviews within a couple of weeks, but then went a full month without any movement. Then not only was a decision not made, I found out there was another round (which was never communicated by HR). So I was being compared to candidates that were interviewed much more recently than I had several weeks earlier.
     Communication style of recruiting team could use some work as well.

    Interview Questions

    • Fairly pedestrian questions for such a long interview process, but the one consistent question was about what type of company culture and pace I am comfortable with.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cohesity in August 2020.

    Interview

    HR Session:
    The first interview went well as HR was warm to talk to.
    I was asked some basic technical questions along with the reasons for the new job, and why Cohesity, and what I am looking forward to in the new job.
    In the end, I was given an opportunity to ask questions.

    Technical Interview
    I was given a scenario-based question. I solved it using my knowledge of Message queues and design/code a solution on limited data.
    I wasn't given an opportunity to ask questions related to the job.

    Interview Questions

    • This question was related to a message queue where the message is coming and whenever from the front-end, if click a button, it should show me the latest N (1 - 50) most recent distinct readings. (In the message queue, the readings could repeat).
      Consider the question as a the concept of cache and set.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cohesity (San Jose, CA (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Overall interview process overall was good. Telephone technical screening was easy. The interviewer was understanding as i was from networking background.
    One onsite interviewer was very discouraging and rude. Another round during onsite was with two new grad, they were looking up interview questions on laptop and asking from there.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cohesity (Jersey City, NJ (US)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Several phone screens (6 or 7), 1 face to face meeting and 2 follow up phone calls in the span of 2-3 weeks. In more than one instance HR/Recruiting had no idea what was going on as the Hiring Manager had "gone rogue" and re-scheduled interviews without HR/Recruiting involvement.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cohesity in June 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of multiple phone interviews and in-person meetings. The entire process was designed to be as convenient as possible to accommodate applicants with current job responsibilities. Rick was an extremely responsive recruiter and answered all of my questions almost immediately. Although I did ultimately receive an offer and accept a position, I believe I would've felt that I was treated with respect regardless of the outcome.

    Field Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cohesity.

    Interview

    Contacted via text message? despite already having received a rejection email from my online application. Representative calls me out of the blue twice asking to chat about the position and has not emailed even once. Asks for my phone availability and does not respond to a specific time and calls me despite having never confirmed any time details. Extremely unprofessional and almost suspicious. Keeps wanting to set up calls without confirming anything via email ever. Still do not know whether he is even a cohesity employee.
