    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at FortuneBuilders.

    Interview

    Interview started with HR, and then the sales floor director. He would do role plays with you and ask lots of questions. Then they would bring all the sales directors in the room and interview you as a group to determine which team you would go on.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FortuneBuilders.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional. I waited outside their building for 20-25 minutes until someone got me. During the interview, I felt rushed and it seemed like the person who was interviewing me just wanted me out ASAP. After the interview I was told that I would get a call back that week and never got one. Completely ghosted. It's common courtesy to let applicants know if they got the job or not.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at FortuneBuilders (San Diego, CA (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    first, a phone interview was conducted. They actually called me by surprise but the initial interview went well, about 25 minutes long. Then was invited to do a in person interview, be prepared and study the info that they give you before that stage. Its pretty important. Just be yourself and theyll know if youre a good fit. It was a great learning point for me and came as a positive experience.

    Software Developer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FortuneBuilders (San Diego, CA (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a position as a Software Developer between November - December of 2018. The process easily took over a month, having multiple phone interviews, a take home coding test, and 2 in person interviews.

    The phone interviews I had were actually very exciting and productive. Those I spoke to seemed to really match up with my philosophies on both work ethic and software development.

    Afterwards I was given a take home coding project, which was fairly standard, a bit intensive on the amount of work involved considering how many interviews the entire process took.

    Then had an in person interview with the Development team. It was somewhat annoying the interview was me being interviewed by 4+ people, but understandable. What turned me off of the position at this point was the Tech Lead and Project Manager both seemed to be pretty stuck up, and just didn't seem like fun people to work with. Once I was leaving that interview one of the other members walked me out and I asked him how he liked the company and how long he's been there. He said good things but mentioned he had only been there for a few months. At that point I looked up on linkedin members of their Engineering team, and they all have only been there for a few months including the Tech lead. That's when I started seeing red flags about turnover in this department.

    Afterwards I was invited for a second in person interview with the Marketing team, which went well and the people involved were very personable.

    Now initially when I started talking to this company I mentioned the Salary range I was looking for was 75k-80k. Once they came to me with an offer they only offered 70k, and their internal recruiter said to be "Yaknow the tech team wanted to offer 65k but they really liked you and I convinced them to offer 70k cause we'd really like you to come on board". If that were so, they would have made an offer in the range I initially thought I was interviewing for. He also mentioned that I should really make a decision soon so he could tell any potential other interviewees about their prospects. This rubbed me the wrong way as it made me feel rushed to make a decision on a lowball offer. Since I felt rushed, I initially accepted the offer. After a few days of thinking it over it was very clear to me I did not work at this company that seemed to have a cult like atmosphere, and seems to be very friendly up front, but the culture seems to be much more rude in person and in reality.

    For the low salary and chance of working in an environment I wouldn't enjoy, I emailed back the internal recruiter mentioning that I had changed my mind and would be declining the offer, after thanking them for the opportunity. The recruiter never even replied to my message, which definitely made me feel like my decision not to work for them, was the correct decision.

    I enjoyed my conversations with all three interviewers however I am left with a bad taste in my mouth because requests for updates on the position were ignored and the job posting was removed from the company site. To me that's unprofessional and it is a common courtesy to let an individual know that they are no longer being considered for a position.

    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FortuneBuilders (San Diego, CA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    After applying online I was contacted a week and half later by a recruiter for a phone screening. This lasted for about an hour and consisted mostly of him detailing the responsibilities of the role. I was asked the basic, "Why do you want to work here?" and "Why do you want to leave your current job?" questions. At the end of the call we set up an in-person interview for the following week.

    A week later I have a one on one interview with the director of HR. The interview lasts for a little over an hour, and I'm asked questions about my past experience and my goals. At the end of the interview I'm told the head of sales will review HR's interview notes and then schedule a third interview, and that I can expect to be contacted within the week.

    That was the last time I heard from the company. A week went by and I didn't receive any type of response, negative or positive. This is very disappointing considering the interviews went well, and I was specifically told I would be contacted. What's up with that FortuneBuilders? I took time out of my day to meet with you and I couldn't even get an email back? Very unprofessional if you ask me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at FortuneBuilders (San Diego, CA (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted to set up an interview with the internal recruitment representative. The next day I had my 1:1 and really enjoyed learning about the company culture, which apparently includes clapping it out after successes, group dinners, a book club, and more. Then an interview was set with the sales team. The recruitment person coached me on providing fuller responses to questions about my short and long term goals and interest in the company and I went through their materials (brochure, informational video, testimonials) a second time to prepare. Unfortunately, the interview with the two senior staff was very strange. Their tone was antagonistic, asking questions not in a conversational way, but almost as if they expected to catch me in a lie. One fellow did not understand that when you have 2 jobs at the same employer and one job ends in a particular month and the other starts in the following month that means you got promoted and it's not an "employment gap." I was asked questions about my former industry which did not pertain to my ability to be their next Account Executive and would have required a much greater background of understanding on their part. I was asked multiple questions about my personal credit history and retirement investments. An understanding of financial concepts may be tangentially required for a position that relates to student tuition collections, but these questions felt invasive. Overall the sales team gave off a dismissive vibe and it soured my view of the company. I received an email a few days later saying they went in another direction.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FortuneBuilders in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and got an email and phone call for an interview. It was an over-the -phone interview and the day of nobody contacted me. I reached out to see if they were going to reschedule and didn't hear back. Then I got an email saying thanks for taking the time to interview with us but we decided to go with other candidates. It felt like a boilerplate email since I never interview with anyone! I don't do business like that and that's a red flag. So everything happens for a reason.
