    Associate Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Smartsheet (Bellevue, WA (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I did two phone screens, first with a recruiter and then with the hiring manager. It was followed with an all day interview loop where I had to do a presentation to about 8 people and then one-on-one interviews with various employees. Questions were typical ones that are asked to designers. What impressed me the most was how organized the whole hiring process was. The recruiter was prompt to respond and very helpful. I was given very thorough information on how my interview loop was going to unfold and given linkedin profiles for each person I was going to meet.

    Interview

    Coding challenge followed by an entire afternoon of onsite loops with whiteboarding. Very nice people, morale pretty high across teams as far as I could tell. Classy office, felt very welcomed. Interviewers were transparent about things they are working on and technical challenges, gave me a good idea of what I'll be doing.

    Software Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Smartsheet.

    Interview

    It dealt with a phone conversation with the recruiter, then a conversation with the manager the position would be reporting to, and then a full day interview with team members, managers, and the executives. Everyone was friendly, for the most part. When it was time to talk about the offer, when the salary negotiation began, they became very silent for awhile, only to revoke the verbal offer and state they offered to another candidate that interviewed after I had.

    AP Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Smartsheet (Bellevue, WA (US)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Intense but thorough and supportive process. Once it started it evolved effortlessly and fast, someone from HR was always there to answer questions and even though it was through a recruiter once I started interviewing the company was very responsive directly to me so that cut down on the anxiety as far as feedback. I ended up with two other offers and one that needed a response, when I informed my recruiter about this and the company they were very transparent as far as how seriously they were considering me.

    Inside Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Smartsheet (Bellevue, WA (US)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter and team interviews were thorough and long. The process is pretty standard with multiple on-site interviews and panel interviews, followed executive/CEO interview. Enjoyed meeting the entire team. Felt there was time to answer and ask questions, which is rare. Some of the team was certainly looking for reasons why it would not work or why I was not a fit rather than how it could work, but that is to be expected during an interview. Overall, the team was absolutely welcoming and engaging. The EVP was a challenging interview, but I felt I was able to address most of his concerns. The on-site interviews were long and arduous, but still it went well, and I am certain there was mutual agreement until I reached the CEO interview. This is where I did not fare well. It was awkward – the interview took place in an open space (kitchen area) and very close to what appeared to be the sales floor where my direct reports would be sitting. It kinda threw me for a loop because I would see people stopping and listening… eeks! It made me pretty uncomfortable, but nothing that I should not have been able to overcome. Mark (CEO, yes, that’s how cool he is…I feel like I can call him Mark) asked very tactical/executional questions about the product positioning/messaging with customers and how one would overcome objections, direct comparisons to competitive products. I was not prepared well enough as I am not that familiar with the product being from the outside. However, I felt that I should have done a better job. They were pretty basic sales tactics. Anyway, posting this so the next person can do well – know the product and competitive products inside and out. You can tell that it’s a great team – highly intelligent, highly motivated, and highly engaged with amazing culture. No question why this is one of the best companies to work for. My advice to anyone reading is – GO GET IT – put yourself out there – be prepared, over prepared, and go work for this company. Don't do your last interview on a Friday at 2pm! Much respect and admiration for the entire team. Best of luck Smartsheet! I'll be watching you guys!!
    1 phone interview (recruiter), 1 on-site (2 hiring managers), 1 on-site (5 interviews (peers, managers, cross functional groups)), then 1 on-site w/ CEO
