Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Dublin

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Dublin, Dublin) in Jul 2019

Interview

I have never experienced such a confrontational, hostile and unfriendly screening ever... I advise to avoid such an encounter! I applied through the careers site using my CV and quite quickly organised a phone screening. Upon answering the phone and before he even introduced hisself or the call purpose/ structure (the basics) the hostility started immediately with an attack on my LinkedIn profile... apparently he was very frustrated that my profile and CV has inconsistencies which was not good enough. He continued his confrontational approach (at one point I thought this was an act to test my ability to react with hostile situations and negotiate... I doubt this was the case, but if it was - can someone give this man an Oscar - perhaps the next James Bond villain?) and actually in two occasions attempted to twist my words and completely change the context of my responses - very frustrating. When attempting to answer his question 'What do you know about LinkedIn?', he (very rudely and abruptly) interrupted me mid sentence with the phrase 'you should at least know the job before you start interviewing'. Across the screening call I did not feel that I was provided with the opportunity to fully display my experience or personality - this was the most hostile and negative interview experience I has encountered. Happy to follow this up with anyone in the company or recruitment team if feedback would be helpful - although I did not receive any automated feedback request (usual for such a company) so perhaps the quality of screenings is not a priority at this stage.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LinkedIn (Dublin, Dublin) in Mar 2017

Interview

LinkedIn approached me through their network and invited me to apply for the Account Executive position with their emerging market team in Dublin. The process was supposed to be composed of a phone interview with a recruiter, followed by a call with the hiring manager and another step, possibly 1:1 or a panel presentation. However, the discussion never progressed past the initial conversation. The recruiter promised a follow up and to answer some of my questions she couldn't answer while we spoke on the phone. This never happened; I wasn't turned down but neither invited for another round. The recruiter failed to respond to my subsequent email and phone enquiries. Additionally, LinkedIn uses Bluejeans conferencing facility to run the phone interviews. This proved to be highly problematic as the voice transmission through the data channel was patchy. LinkedIn made a very unprofessional impression on me. Not following up on the interview is a big no-no from my point of view, particularly since they earmarked me for the role themselves.
