    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at AppFolio (Dallas, TX (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First, a preliminary call interview with appfolio's recruiting department at which time they will discuss your resume. Nothing out of the ordinary here, they just want a little more information about your experience. Next, you are scheduled with an online interview via meetingstogo which you must download prior. The SDR position I applied for was no longer available but they were interested in filling a support engineer position. The interviewer went over the job description and was checking I'd I was still interested and if it was a good fit for me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AppFolio (Richardson, TX (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the internal recruiter based in their Richardson, TX office and spoke for around 20 minutes regarding my background, skills, comp ratio, etc. At the end of the call I was invited to come into their office the following week and interview with the hiring VP.

    My conversation with the hiring manager went well and I was informed they would contact me the following week with next steps. Next week came and went with no contact. I emailed and never received a response where I had requested feedback.

    Judging by the office demographic, if you are over 30 years old, don't bother to apply. Overall environment is small and reminded me of my freshman college days.
