    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Turnitin in October 2018.

    Interview

    An email setting up a phone call. The phone call went well, and the HR person said she wanted me to talk to the hiring manager and would set that up. Then... nothing for a couple weeks until I received a form email saying the position had been filled. Feels pretty shoddy, but I was overqualified and usually make more than this position was offering.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oakland, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Turnitin (Oakland, CA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    In contrast to my experience with several preceding companies, my interview adventure with Turnitin was quite refreshing! It was a great pleasure dealing with friendliness and professionalism while everything was handled quickly and professionally.

    Soon after my application, I had an initial screening conversation and, very quickly, an initial phone conversation with my prospective team leader. I was invited to visit the home office in Oakland within a very fews days. They hosted me for three hours during which time I met with two team leaders, two QA engineers, two senior developers and a VP of Engineering. To a person, they were friendly, helpful, answered my questions forthrightly and asked pertinent and innovative questions of me. As I left, I was told I'd be contacted the next day with a decision -- which I was! No keeping me waiting for weeks or sending a simple rejection email.

    I was very impressed with the recruiting personnel who coordinated the entire process and the engineering individuals I met.

    Senior HRBP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Turnitin (Oakland, CA (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was long, but well communicated. First two rounds were with recruiting over the phone, then an in person with 3 HR professionals and I returned twice for meetings with the leadership team. After being in constant communication with them for about a month, I never heard a thing after my final in person interview. Totally fine to not get a job, but not closing the loop isn't acceptable. It's been a month and no word either way from recruiting.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were about my background and experience. Given the sheer number of interviewers (9 total) it would have been more effective to have some sort of case based questions with scenarios. A good debrief would have likely been more effective.   Answer Question

    Customer Support Specialist - French Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA (US)

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Turnitin (Oakland, CA (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied at Turnitin for a Customer Support Specialist French position about a month and a half ago. I received an email about a week after submitting my application online to schedule a phone interview with a recruiter in the UK. The day of my scheduled interview early in the morning, the recruiter did not call and I waited for a few hours until I finally sent him an email to ask if the interview was still on. Then, a very nice recruiter in Chicago contacted me to say she would take over the interview process for this position and we were able to reschedule the interview for the following day. Overall positive experience over the phone with her. The phone interview was about 15 minutes. It was pretty straightforward and I was under the impression things went pretty well. She told me that a hiring manager in Oakland would be in touch to schedule an in person interview shortly. After that I did not hear back for about 3 weeks until someone reached out to tell me they had chosen to go with another candidate. Although Turnitin seems like a great place to work, I feel like the communication throughout the hiring process could definitely be improved.

    Inside Sales Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Turnitin.

    Interview

    Terrible. Took months and was a complete waste of time. They will make you sit and have all these phone interviews by phone and they won't even send you a letter saying Thank you for applying. This company treats interviewees like if they are nothing and they will sit and waste your time. Don't apply for them, if thats how they treat the interview process think about how they treat their workers. They asked too many personal questions that dont matter.
